PARIS: The French government has called on Muslim countries to refrain from interfering in France’s “internal matters”.
According to Reuters, French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin, in an interview with state radio, criticized the reaction of Muslim countries, saying that the parliaments of the Muslim countries had passed resolutions against France. Approval is tantamount to “interfering in France’s internal affairs.”
It should be noted that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, while sharply criticizing the recent events in France and the statement of French President Emmanuel Mekhwan regarding the blasphemous sketches, advised the French President to seek mental treatment and demanded that Muslims boycott French products.
Recently a number of Muslim countries have been protesting against the cartoons of Prophet Muhammad PBUH after France shows the cartoon on the Government Building. Since then two Muslim women had been stabbed and one brother and sister had been attacked in Islamophobic attacks.
As French products boycott by Muslims has been giving them a huge drop in revenue, France has been telling Muslims not to boycott their products. But, on the other hand, stopping Muslims to interfere in their internal matters.
Muslim leaders have also condemned the attacks in France on both Christians and Muslims and urge to fight terrorism together, called, that targeting only Muslims in France just because of their religion is high-level discrimination.
Until now, France has shut down 74 mosques in the country to fight terrorism. Also arresting Muslim leaders and cutting the foreign funding for the Muslim institutes. Furthermore, they have also shut down a famous Islamic charity.
The tensions between French government and Muslims are getting more rough day by day as more and more countries are getting involved in the debate.
