Fancy protests in India against Macron's Islamophobia


Fancy protests in India against Macron's Islamophobia

A poster of French President Emmanuel Macron has been put up on Mohammad Ali Road in Mumbai, India.

This fancy protest was held on Thursday due to his support for publishing cartoons mocking the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and his anti-Islamic remarks.

The video, which was spread online, showed people driving over the poster and people walking. There have also been protests against Macron's comments.

The placards on the hands of those who took part in the procession read, "Our Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), our honor."

However, the political game has started in Maharashtra with this poster. The Hindutva party BJP has accused Shiv Sena of supporting 'Islamic terrorism'.

They also demanded action against those who pasted the posters.

BJP leader Kriti Samaya said that while France was speaking out against Islamic terrorism, the Maharashtra government stood by those who supported radical Islamic terrorism.

However, the police quickly removed the poster. No case has been filed in this regard.

Similar protests have taken place in Madhya Pradesh, Aligarh Muslim University and Ludhiana in Punjab.

There were also online protests against the hashtag 'Boycott France Products'.

This comes at a time when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed solidarity with the victims of a knife attack outside a church in the French city of Nice.

He also expressed support for Macron's fight against terrorism.
