French president’s statement affected Muslim communities living around the world“, says Aman Project chief.

KARACHI: Aman Project chairperson Nabeela Ali, in a letter to Council of Europe, has urged the European body to take notice of recent “Islamophobic” statements of French President Emmanuel Macron.

“We believe his [Macron’s] behaviour is not only serviceable to the other communities living in France but also has raised threats to his national security and put the public safety at risk,” she wrote.

Nabeela Ali said that the people living in the UK whole-heartedly condemn the recent and previous terrorist attacks in France, in response to the caricatures of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

“We understand the Freedom of speech is considered an ‘essential freedom’ in France. It is protected by the 1789 Declaration of Human and Civic Rights, which is incorporated by reference into the French Constitution. It is also protected by the European Convention on Human Rights Act 1998, to which France is a party and the French Law on the Freedom of the Press of 29 July 1881,” the letter read.

Responding to the Macro’s statements, she said that he is egoistically provoking statements without giving a single thought about the self-respect and dignity, hurt beliefs of two billion Muslims around the world and were contrary to the freedom of expression and human rights that are given to the people under the Article 4 and Article 11 of the French Declaration of human and civil rights.

“Nevertheless, it is indecisive yet if the French President has limited knowledge about the freedom of expression and human rights laid down in the constitution or he has prejudice against a community.

“We respectfully request the commissioner of human rights to please take notice of this issue to reassure our dignity and put restrictions on France, on any type of drawing, publication and exhibition that may depict God/Allah, any prophet, any person, community, belief or colour for the sake of protecting privacy, dignity, fame and beliefs with no exceptions and reassure the France to execute the liberty, human rights and freedom of expression in lines with the above mentioned French constitution,” she maintained.

  1. There should be a new regulation passed by world high court for the leaders that create religious and ethnic controversies.
    The world is already passing through difficult times. Mankind is frantically dealing with natural disasters one after the other. One should not create more troubles.
