“Irrespective of the religion professed, angry people kill. The French in the course of their history has killed millions of people. Many were Muslims,” Mohamad said. “Muslims have a right to be angry and to kill millions of French people for the massacres of the past.”
“Since you have blamed all Muslims and the Muslims’ religion for what was done by one angry person, the Muslims have a right to punish the French. The boycott cannot compensate the wrongs committed by the French all these years,” he concluded, referring to calls in the Muslim world to boycott French products.
Mohamad’s assertion that Muslims have the “right … to kill millions of French people” remains on Twitter at press time. [Update: Twitter has taken down the post since the publication of this article]
