The French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo has taken the party to caricature the Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan in one of his next Wednesday number, the media announced on Twitter on Tuesday evening.
The cover shows Erdogan in his underwear in his chair, a can in hand, as he lifts a veiled woman’s dress with his other hand. The latter, in the background, exclaims “Ouuuh! The Prophet ! “. The front page is titled “Erdogan, in the private sector, he is very funny”.
In recent days, violent comments have been exchanged between Mr. Erdogan and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, after the beheading of a history professor who showed, during a course, caricatures of Muhammad made by Charlie Hebdo. Mr Macron’s words on the subject were frowned upon by Ankara, and Mr Erdogan called on Tuesday for a boycott of French products.
Mr Macron has repeatedly defended freedom of expression and freedom to publish caricatures.
In early September, Charlie Hebdo reissued its cartoons of Muhammad, which were controversial in parts of the Muslim world.
Ankara reacts strongly
Turkey reacted strongly on Tuesday to a caricature of its president Recep Tayyip Erdogan to appear on Wednesday in Charlie Hebdo, accusing the French satirical weekly of “cultural racism”.
“We condemn this utterly despicable effort on the part of this publication to spread its cultural racism and hatred,” the Turkish President’s senior press adviser, Fahrettin Altun, said on Twitter.
He presented this publication as the result of “French President Macron’s anti-Muslim program”.
A very lively controversy has been opposing for weeks President Emmanuel Macron and his Turkish counterpart, the latter having gone so far as to question the “mental health” of the French president about his positions on radical Islamism and freedom. expression.
Charlie Hebdo had published caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in 2006 – like other European newspapers – in defense of press freedom after their publication by a Danish daily angered many Muslims. The weekly was the victim in 2015 of a jihadist attack which killed 12 people, including journalists and cartoonists from the newspaper.
