The magazine, Charlie Hebdo, printed on September 20 a cartoon of the controversial and poorly-made anti-Islam film 'Innocence of Muslims'. While the demonstrations have taken over the whole Islamic world, Muslims in France are spreading a message of peace saying that they do not want violence.
Talking to the AFP, Dali Boubakeur said, Rector of Paris Mosque said, “We are fighting the caricatures as vigorously as possible. I know the man is the only animal that makes the same mistake twice. To start again with the same non-sense, the same stupidity, the same ignominy seems to us to point at some kind of psychiatric problem.”
A lawyer, Chems-eddine Hafiz talked about the freedom of speech and said, “Freedom of speech has its limits and concerns freedom of belief and freedom of conscious. Muslims are extremely affected and upset about this aggression and we are aware of that but we are not going to respond to provocation in an untimely way.”
