MPs continue to express anger over the speech of French President Emmanuel Macron against Islam. MP Ahmed Al-Fadl pointed out that offending Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is not part of free speech according to the European court.
He said condemning the terroristic crimes does not mean extending the attack to Islam and Muslim icons.
MP Osama Al-Shaheen wondered about the double standard adopted by France; explaining that while offending French values is strictly forbidden, defaming Islamic values is not only allowed but also supported and encouraged.
He added that attacking a single French citizen is condemned, but attacking two French women is allowed just because they are Muslims and wearing Hijab. MP Adel Al-Damkhi praised the statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in this regard, affirming such a statement reflects his stand on the issue.
