The gruesome murder of a 47-year-old history teacher, Samuel Paty, gave President Macron the perfect opportunity to divert attention from his failed domestic policies. Instead of condemning the atrocious and vile actions of the murderer, Macron singled out an entire religion by saying: “he was killed because the Islamists want our future. They know that with quiet heroes like him, they will never have it.” He chose to denigrate Islam by labelling it as a religion in crises and by projecting the provocative cartoons onto government buildings in France. The caricatures of the noble Prophet are deeply hurtful to the sensibilities of 1.8 billion Muslims across the globe. As Muslims we do not endorse, sanction or encourage extra judicial killings notwithstanding.
