Charlie Hebdo latest issue showing the naked muslims
The Charlie Hebdo cartoon released last Wednesday features a man and another woman at the beach with exposed genitals. The woman was shown wearing a shoulder-length veil, while the man has a long beard, and the picture has a caption that reads; “The reform of Islam. Muslims, loosen up” (“Musulmans de-coin-cez-vous”).
Since the issue was released, staff at Charlie Hebdo have received more than 60 death threat messages. One of the staff received a message that reads “You will die."
The co-shareholder, Eric Portheault while speaking to a French Newspaper, Le Parisien, said that the threats have all been reported to the Paris police, and the magazine had been getting such messages since the beginning of summer.
Some death threats were received during the UEFA 2016 football championship after the magazine showed a French footballer, Antoine Griezmann in a shape of a vibrator.
The magazine staff has been working under police protection since January 2015 ater an attack that left 12 people dead, after Charlie Hebdo makes a mockery of Prophet Muhammad on its magazine cover.
