As caricatures of the prophet Muhammad published by the satirical newspaper Charlie Weekly were projected, on Wednesday, in memory of Professor Samuel Fifth, who was beheaded last Friday in a religious-motivated attack.
The controversial cartoons were projected on the exterior facade of the Chambertimes Municipal of Montpellier and Toulouse, for several hours, after a tribute to the professor, who was attended by the family of Fifth and President Emmanuel Macron, in Paris.
During the exhibition of the cartoons, the place was filled with armed police officers.
The professor, who posthumously received the Legion of Honor, the most important French award, began to embody, according to the French President, “the face of the struggle for freedom and reason”, a struggle that Macron says will continue in his name ” because it is more necessary than ever “.
The attack took place last Friday afternoon at a school in the suburbs of the French capital, where Samuel Fifth, 47 years old, taught the disciplines of History and Geography. The alleged perpetrator of the attack, identified as Abdullah Anzorov, a young man of 18 years of origin chechen, born in Russia (Moscow), was shot down by the police.
Police source, cited by the France-Press news agency (AFP), explained that the victim may have displayed caricatures of the prophet Muhammad during a class on freedom of expression. According to research sources cited by the French newspaper Le Monde, one or more students will have provided the Abdullah Anzorov the teacher’s identity in exchange for a few hundred euros.
