Statement: Charlie Hebdo slander is another desperate attempt by declining empire

The latest Charlie Hebdo contest that depicts Ayatollah Khamenei in a negative light is yet another desperate attempt by a declining empire to mock that which is held dear to many Muslims.

This is of course unsurprising of an entity and society that promoted hatred against the great Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and his family.

Ayatollah Khamenei is for many Muslims a symbol of religious Islamic authority, scholarship and reverence.

We remind the French government that their sloganeering about peace and respect falls on deaf ears when they allow such brazen and irresponsible behaviour that seeks to hurt the sentiments of Muslims under a false label of freedom.

This behaviour only furthers the polarisation of society and deliberately creates an environment of hate. This is something that both Charlie Hebdo and the French government seem intent on.

We categorically condemn this disgraceful behaviour and remind the French government that they are not only complicit in this insult but they are facilitating hatred against Islam and Muslims.
