French Magazine, Charlie Hebdo which was attacked by Islamic extremists over its controversial depiction of Muslim affairs including jokes concerning Prophet Muhammed is set to make some people angry with the cover of their new edition.
This week’s edition of the French satirical magazine will show a cartoon depicting a turbaned man holding a “Je suis Charlie” sign.
Above the cartoon are the words “All is forgiven”. What makes it controversial is that there is speculation that the man depicted is supposed to be the Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W). This comes after Islamist gunmen last week raided the magazine’s Paris office, killing 12 people.
Charlie Hebdo’s lawyer Richard Malka told France Info radio: “We will not give in. The spirit of ‘I am Charlie’ means the right to blaspheme.”
What do you think? Do you suppose the magazine should have stopped? Or were they right to continue?
