Iran Supreme Leader slams French President
He lamented the strong support of the French president and the cabinet of that country for these malicious actions under the guise of “freedom of expression”.
The Supreme Leader of Iran also blasted the role played by the French government in spreading Islamophobia.
Ayatollah Khamenei also raised important questions in his message.
Here is the full text of Ayatollah Khamenei’s message addressing the French youth:
In His Name
Young French people!
Ask your President why he supports insulting God’s Messenger in the name of freedom of expression. Does freedom of expression mean insulting, especially a sacred personage? Isn’t this stupid act an insult to the reason of the people who elected him?
The next question to ask is: why is it a crime to raise doubts about the Holocaust? Why should anyone who writes about such doubts be imprisoned while insulting the Prophet (PBUH) is allowed?
Meanwhile, Radio Pakistan reported Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has criticized recent stance by French President Emmanuel Macron about blasphemy.
In a statement, he said freedom of expression does not amount to insulting a sacred personage.
