JU students protest against reprinting of Prophet Muhammad's cartoon

The students of Jahangirnagar University (JU) staged demonstration on the campus protesting French magazine Charlie Hebdo's reprinting of cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad.

Over 200 students of the university organized a human chain at Dhaka-Aricha highway adjacent to the main gate of the university on Tuesday noon.

Students at the human chain also protested against French President Emmanuel Macron, who criticised Islamists and vowed not to "give up cartoons" depicting the Prophet Mohammed.

Later, protesters burned the French national flag and called for boycott of French products.

Earlier, on last week French president Emmanuel Macron defended French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo’s right to publish cartoons of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad.
