The recent remarks by French President Emmanuel Macron who declared his support for insulting moves against the holy Prophet of Islam have angered people in Afghanistan. Religious scholars believe such inhuman words by Macron prove that he is after spreading Islamophobia under the pretext of freedom of speech.

Besides religious bodies and cultural organizations, some other key bodies like the Afghan parliament have reacted to Macron’s insulting words as well.

Afghan people have also urged the government to cut ties with France as soon as possible regardless of its financial or military support.

Spreading Islamophobia across the world has appeared in different forms whether in creating terrorist groups like Daesh and al-Qaeda or insulting key figures of Islam and many other cowardly tactics.

Observers say the main reason behind the current Islamophobia campaigns is the fear of the rise of the real teachings of Islam such as justice and peace across the globe.
