publication of the comic book series on the life of Prophet Muhammad
Ihsanoglu said the publication went against the norms of responsible
journalism and was tantamount to abuse of the right to freedom of
expression. He added that incitement and advocacy of hatred and
intolerance on religious grounds signified by this publication was in
contravention of international human rights laws and instruments.
He called on the magazine to abide by the provisions, particularly
those in the European Union (EU) context, on incitement to hatred and
violence. He urged the authorities in France to take appropriate action
against the magazine.
