India supports controversial France President Emmanuel Macron in his actions and statements following the assassination of a teacher who was brought to a caricature class of the Prophet Muhammad. But India has come out in support of Macron amid mounting protests from Arab nations. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs has issued a statement condemning the criticism leveled against Macron.
The statement also condemned the killing of a teacher who was on display in a caricature class of the Prophet Muhammad. Terrorism is not justified under any circumstances for any reason. “We strongly condemn any personal attack on President Emmanuel Macron in violation of the basic tenets of international law, in a language never accepted,” the foreign ministry said in a statement. Condolences to the family of the slain teacher and the people of France, the statement said. The French Ambassador to India Emmanuel Lenin thanked India for its statement.
The events began with the murder of a history teacher who had been brought to France by a caricature class of the Prophet Muhammad. Macron, who has launched government-led crackdowns on churches across the country, has said Islam is a crisis religion not only in France but in the world as well. There was a widespread protest against this. In addition, a boycott of French products was introduced in businesses. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that the French president’s attitude towards Muslims and Islam should be examined and treated. With this, France recalled its ambassador to Turkey. The conflict between the European Union and Turkey on the issue is now intensifying.
