Paris mufti has said that the French parliament needed to pass a new law that bans insulting religious symbols, reacting to a French weekly magazine Charlie Hebdo's publication of cartoons of the Holy Prophet Muhammad.
Speaking to AA correspondent on Thursday regarding the latest cartoon crisis in France, Paris Mufti Halil Ebubekir recalled that the magazine had also published caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in 2006. As France's Muslim Council, they made an appeal to the court, but it did not yield any result, he said.
"We heard that a lawsuit was again opened against this magazine, but I think that it will remain inconclusive," he said.
Muslim community in France must put pressure on parliamentarians and senators for preparation of a new law, he said.
French parliament must launch necessary initiatives to prevent such moves that offended and provoked Muslims in this country, Ebubekir said.
He added that Muslims in the country should act with common sense.
