This is in the Islamic world against French President Emmanuel Macron on Islam. His remarks and his outrage in support of publishing comics were seen as an insult to many in the Muslim world.

The Security Council added in its statement:

The council emphasized that Islam prohibits any prophet who despise God, and urges Muslims to follow the example of the prophet Muhammad and call “his kindness, justice, tolerance and good for all mankind.”

The French president said at a ceremony to commemorate the teacher last week: “We will not give up cartoons.”

“He was killed because the Islamists wanted our future. They will always have it.”

Macron’s remarks sparked a renewed debate on religious tolerance and inspired many leaders in the Islamic world to emphasize the importance of respecting their religious beliefs, even when condemning Patty’s murder.

The 57 nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation headquartered in Saudi Arabia condemned on Sunday “the ongoing practice of satirizing the Prophet Muhammad’s caricatures” and stated that “they will continue to condemn the desecration of any religion in the name of freedom of speech.”

The organization previously condemned the execution of the French teacher and reiterated its “well-known position of rejecting all forms of extremism, radicalism, and terrorism for any reason or motive.”
