The Garlic understands that the new edition of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo will show a cartoon depicting the Prophet Muhammad holding a “Je suis Charlie” sign. Above the cartoon are the words “All is forgiven”. This comes after Islamist gunmen last week raided the magazine’s Paris office, killing 12 people.
A total of 17 people were killed in three days of terror attacks in the French capital last week. About 10,000 troops are being deployed across France after the attacks, and a huge unity rally was held in Paris on Sunday.
The latest cover of Charlie Hebdo has been published in advance by French media. Outside France, the Washington Post, Germany’s Frankfurter Allgemeine, Corriere della Sera in Italy and the UK’s Guardian are among publications to show the cartoon.
In spite of these publications, The Garlic has decided not to publish the cartoons. Furthermore, The Garlic has decided not to publish any articles that offend Muslims.
