(PHOTOS) French magazine defames Mohammad in cartoons

A French weekly magazine, Charlie Hebdo published several defaming cartoons of Prophet Mohammad in its latest issue. Furor over the cheap quality anti-Islamic movie is not over yet and now these cartoons raise outrage among the Muslims worldwide. Prophet Mohammad appears in a wheelchair on the cover while Orthodox Jew is seen pushing him. This is not the end as the magazine crossed its limit by showing the Prophet naked in its inside pages including several other caricatures on him.

Muslim leaders from around the world urged the French government to take firm action against Charlie Hebdo. If the case of Kate (the duchess) is a matter of privacy, then the cartoons are an insult to a whole people. The beliefs of others must be respected,” Essam Erian, the acting head of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party told the Reuters.

The French government will close 20 embassies on Friday in Muslim-based countries to avoid any unexpected violence.
