Pakistan: Thousands rally against Macron in Karachi

Thousands of protesters gathered for a fresh protest against French President Emmanuel Macron over his Islam comments, in Karachi on Saturday. Protesters were seen chanting and stomping on a picture of Macron. Earlier this month, the French president said that Islam is «a religion that is in crisis all over the world today,» as he announced a bill to 'strengthen' a 1905 law that officially separated church and state in the country. The comments sparked a wave of protests and calls to boycott French products in the Muslim world. Religious tensions in France have risen in recent weeks following the killing of French teacher Samuel Paty on October 16, after he showed cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad to his students during a discussion on freedom of speech.
