Royal Court condemns Charlie Hebdo’s cartoon

AMMAN — The Royal Court on Thursday issued a statement condemning French satiric magazine Charlie Hebdo’s publishing of an abusive cartoon depicting Prophet Mohammad. 

Following is the full text of the statement:

“The continuation of publishing insulting cartoons that depict our Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) offends the feelings of Muslim communities everywhere.

It is a condemned act that is irresponsible and far from the essence of freedom of expression, which is founded on principles of responsibility and respect for religions.

These persistent insults come at a time when we are most in need of wisdom, dialogue, openness and constructive efforts embodying respect, tolerance and shared values.”
