A peaceful rally "I love my Prophet” that has previously held in Bishkek and Osh cities has reached the southern town of Kyrgyzstan, Jalal-Abad.
Predominantly men carrying signs “Je suis Kouachi,” “Hands off our beloved Prophet Muhammad!" and "We are against the cartoons of our Prophet” have gathered around 11am local time today near the building of the Barpy drama theater.
Former Sharia law judge of the region Dilmurat aji Orozov delivering a speech said the rally demonstrates love towards Prophet Muhammad.
“Publication of cartoons of the Prophet led to bloodshed in France. What do they expect from the Muslims? Our answer is we love our Prophet. We are thankful to him for everything,” he said.
French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo published a picture of Mohammad weeping on its cover last week after gunmen stormed its offices, killing 12 people. The gunmen said the attack was revenge for cartoons the magazine had published mocking Islam.
