Moroccans to Organize One Million March to Honor the Prophet

Taroudante – A group of Moroccan social media users are preparing for a “one million march”  for February 1 in protest of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s latest edition, which contains new provocative cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad and Islam in its first issue after the attacks on its headquarters in Paris.The organizing committee reportedly gathered yesterday in Casablanca to make the necessary arrangements so that the rally will be successful.A few days after it was announced, more than seven thousand have expressed their willingness to attend the event. According to the organizers, the rally, which is under the theme “No to mocking the prophet, No to terrorism,” will take place on February 1 at 10:00 am in Casablanca, Morocco’s largest city.The organizers of the event said on their Facebook page that the aim of the march is to confirm that Moroccans denounce terrorism, but at the same time will not accept any mockery of the prophet of Islam.Officially, Morocco denounced the attacks that targeted the Charlie Hebdo headquarters, which killed twelve.At the same time, it banned the latest issue of French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and all publications that have reprinted the provocative cartoons about the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.The majority of social media users applauded Morocco’s refusal to participate in the solidarity march on Sunday in Paris, which was attended by more than 50 world leaders.Photo by Mohamed Mouad© Morocco World News.
