India ‘strongly deplores’ attacks on Macron for tough stance on radical Islam

India on 28 October strongly deplored the personal attacks against French President Emmanuel Macron following his tough stance on radical Islam, calling it a violation of the most basic standards of international discourse.

In a strongly-worded statement, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) condemned the brutal terrorist attack that took the life of a French teacher in a gruesome manner and asserted that there is no justification for terrorism for any reason or under any circumstance.

“We strongly deplore the personal attacks in unacceptable language on President Emmanuel Macron in violation of the most basic standards of international discourse,” the said.

“We condemn the brutal terrorist attack that took the life of a French teacher in a gruesome manner that has shocked the world. We offer our condolences to his family and the people of France,” it said.

Following the statement, French Ambassador to India Emmanuel Lenain thanked India saying both countries can count on each other in the fight against terrorism.

“Thank you @MEAIndia. France and India can always count on each other in the fight against terrorism,” he tweeted.

President Macron has been facing criticism from various Muslim-majority countries after he took a tough stand on radical Islam and defended cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. The French President said that Islam was a religion in “crisis”.

His comments came in the backdrop of the beheading of French teacher Samuel Paty on 16 October outside Paris in broad daylight. He had shown caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad to his students.

‘No justification for terrorism for any reason’

Pakistan’s Imran Khan and Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdoğan have attacked Macron over the publication of Charlie Hebdo cartoon which was derogatory in nature. 

Meanwhile, France has sought EU action against Turkey. 

“France wants its EU partners to take action, including potential sanctions, against Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan over a series of “provocations,” the country’s Europe minister said on 28 October.

“We need to go further… We will push for strong responses, which could include sanctions,” Clement Beaune told parliament.
