Sacrilege of Islam Prophet Disturbs Muslims’ Sentiments“Sacrilege of the honorable and dear Prophet of Islam (PBUH) and other divine prophets under the pretext of freedom of expression has disturbed Muslims’ sentiments and will further complicate the regional developments,” Zonnouri said in a meeting with French Ambassador to Tehran Philippe Thiebaud on Wednesday.

Elsewhere, he warned that the foreign states’ interferences have stirred instability and insecurity in the region, saying that Iran emphasizes the need to respect the countries’ territorial integrity and non-interference in their internal affairs.

Thiebaud, for his part, underlined his country’s commitment to the nuclear deal and talks among parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to resolve problems and remove obstacles, adding, “France is opposed to the US unilateral withdrawal from the nuclear deal.”

In relevant remarks on Tuesday, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in a statement on Tuesday condemned the blasphemous acts against the holy Quran and Great Prophet of Islam (PBUH), warning that they are aimed at derailing attention from the plots hatched by the US and the Zionists against the region.

“This move made at this point in time might also serve another motive; diverting the minds and attention of nations and governments in West Asia away from the evil schemes that the US and the Zionist regime have hatched for the region,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

He described sacrilege of the holy Quran and Great Prophet of Islam (PBUH) as an “unforgivable sin”, saying that it showed again the enmity of the western political and cultural bodies against Islam and Muslims.

Ayatollah Khamenei also lambasted French President Emanuel Macron and other French politicians for supporting the blasphemous acts, dismissing it as wrong and demagogic.

The statement came after supporters of right-wing Danish politician Rasmus Paludan, who leads the anti-Islamic group, Tight Direction (Stram Kurs), burned a copy of Holy Qur’an in the Southern Swedish city of Malmo during an illegal gathering on August 28.

Also, on September 1, the ill-reputed French Magazine Charlie Hebdo also republished blasphemous cartoons of the Prophet of Islam on the eve of the trial of suspects in a deadly attack on the paper’s office five years ago.
