Approximately 5 thousand people participated in it
The city of Bamako, the capital of Mali, witnessed, on Wednesday, a protest stand organized by nearly 5,000 people, rejecting the anti-Muslim statements of French President Emmanuel Macron.
According to news reported by local newspapers, the protesters gathered in the Grand Mosque with the capital, in response to an invitation from the Supreme Islamic Council.
While the protesters denounced Macron’s statements, Moussa Boukar Bah, Assistant Secretary-General of the Council, called for the French President to apologize to all Muslims.
In recent days, France witnessed the publication of insulting pictures and cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad on the facades of buildings, which sparked a wave of anger throughout the Islamic world.
On October 21, French President Emmanuel Macron said that France would not abandon the “caricatures”, which doubled the wave of anger in the Islamic world, and campaigns were launched in some countries boycotting French products and goods.
