Freedom and Justice Party Statement on French Cartoons Insulting Prophet Mohammed
Freedom and Justice Party Statement on French Cartoons Insulting Prophet Mohammed
Translation of the Statement by the Freedom and Justice Party, the Muslim Brotherhood’s political wing in Egypt, regarding publication of new crude caricatures targeting the Prophet of Islam, in France.
Thursday, September 20,2012 14:38

The Freedom and Justice Party (FJP) strongly condemns the French magazine Charlie Hebdo’s publication of outrageous cartoons insulting Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him), which represents a new assault against Islam and Muslims.

The FJP urges the French government to take stern and speedy action against this magazine, which violated the sanctity of religions and religious symbols, especially since the French judiciary has taken clear steps against a magazine that published photos offensive to Catherine Middleton, British Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William’s wife, and since it also holds a strict position against denying the Holocaust.

The FJP points to the significance of timing publication of these utterly crude and offensive caricatures, days after the American anti-Islam film also insulting the Prophet (PBUH).

Are there hidden hands manipulating the West to provoke Arab and Muslim peoples who have just begun winning their freedoms from corrupt authoritarian regimes?

Once again, the FJP calls upon the international community, the United Nations and its organizations, to expedite the adoption of an international convention to protect religious symbols and sanctities against such twisted intellectual extremism and perversion that incite hatred, confrontation and violence.

The FJP urges international institutions, the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, as well as associations and institutions concerned with civil liberties and the protection of international peace and security to take the necessary legal steps to address these abuses that incite hatred and provoke millions of Muslims.
