the unacceptable behavior of the French authorities which shocked the feelings of millions of Muslims in Europe and in the world

", stressing that "

that any insult and any lack of respect towards the Prophet of Islam and the values ​​of Islam (were) strongly condemned

This statement follows the statements of French President Emmanuel Macron after the assassination on October 16 near Paris of Professor Samuel Paty by a Russian extremist of Chechen origin.

Emmanuel Macron declared that France "

will not abandon the cartoons

", published for the first time by the satirical magazine

Charlie Hebdo

The daily Javan has a headline "

Le Mal

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Monday that Emmanuel Macron's remarks only fueled "

extremism

" and that insulting all Muslims "

for the heinous crimes of these extremists

" was "

opportunistic abuse

"

of freedom of expression
