France, for the past few days, has been on a boil after multiple terror attacks by Islamist terrorists in the country.
It all started after a school teacher in France was beheaded by an Islamist terrorist for showing a cartoon of Prophet Muhammad in the classroom.
As the incident was reported, French President, Emmanuel Macron, pledged to fight “Islamist separatism” and describing Islam as “a religion in crisis all over the world,” said that “France will not give up cartoons.”
He also added that the teacher, Samuel Paty, was“killed because Islamists want our future”.
His statements irked the Muslim world out there and Muslim-dominated countries soon came forward launching protests against Macron and accusing him of promoting Islamophobia.
Even Pakistan and Turkey’s top leaders also criticised Macron for literally calling out what’s true.
In reply to the criticism by the Turkey President, Charlie Hebdo, a French magazine, yet again released another cartoon mocking Turkey President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
Amidst the war of words and cartoons, a couple more terror attacks were reported in France on October 29 where three people were killed. These attacks are being suspected in retaliation to the French President’s statements in recent days.
Across events, Indians have come out in support of France as India too has long been fighting against terrorism. Even PM Modi yesterday took on social media to criticise the terror attacks in France.
But then there is this small section of ‘Indian Muslims’ that is protesting against the French President for literally fighting against terrorism and speaking against its presence in the world.
Recently, pictures and videos from Mumbai and Bhopal went viral where a small section of Muslims can be seen protesting against Macron instead of condemning the killing of innocent people in France.
In one video from Mumbai, one can see posters of the French President stuck on the road and in other from Bhopal, one can see a gathering of Muslims protesting against Macron.
As these videos went viral, netizens wonder what’s on the mind of this small section of Indian society, where they really stand and what they are trying to promote?
