The Government of Morocco today “vigorously” condemned the publication, for the second time, of the caricatures of Muhammad in France and considered that the act constitutes an “outrage” against Islam and the prophet, although at no time did it mention the French country, its main ally international.

The Moroccan Foreign Ministry considered in a statement that freedom of expression does not justify “in any way the insulting provocation and insulting offense of the Muslim religion (professed by) more than two billion faithful.”

On Wednesday, French President Emmanuel Macron said that France “will not give up cartoons” after a teacher was assassinated and beheaded for showing his students those that the weekly Charlie Hebdo published in September during a class at a high school. .

At the same time, the Moroccan Government condemned “the obscurantist and barbaric violence that is perpetrated in the name of Islam.”

Morocco’s reaction follows that of several Muslim countries such as Kuwait, Turkey and Jordan or the Organization of Islamic Cooperation that condemned both the Muhammad cartoons and the statements of French officials as likely to harm relations with the Muslim world.

The words of the French president last Wednesday have unleashed waves of indignation in several Muslim countries, where calls have been launched to boycott French products.

Hashtags in defense of Muhammad and videos showing the removal of products of well-known French food or cosmetic brands from supermarket shelves went viral on social media.

The reproduction of images, statues and paintings is a fact forbidden by Islam in the contemporary era, considering that it encourages idolatry; In addition, the reproduction of the images of the Prophet Muhammad is not allowed in any way and in any area.
