We are confident that France will work to protect the rights of its whole citizens, of different religions, and that the demonstrations in Paris will call for national cohesion, and the defense of freedom, and the face of all kinds of extremism, not directed towards a particular faction. "


Imam Al-Qaradawi explained his complete denial to European newspapers publishing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad - peace be upon him, and the Book of our God the Quran, and his call for Muslims to denied it in all peaceful means legitimate and legal, as it is not reasonable to take the intellectual and expressive values of freedom as a cover to assault religious sanctities and obtain its symbols, adding that all of the Islamic nation does not accept insulting sanctities or rituals.
