OIC mulls legal action against Charlie Hebdo
Sunday January 18, 2015 11:13 AM, Agencies

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) intends to take legal measures against the French magazine, Charlie Hebdo, for publishing blasphemous cartoons, Secretary General Iyad Madani told a local daily on Friday.

"OIC is studying Europe and French laws and other available procedures to be able to take legal action against Charlie Hebdo," he said.

" If French laws allow us to take legal procedures against Charlie Hebdo, OIC will not hesitate to prosecute the French magazine," he said.

"This (the publication by Charlie Hebdo) is an idiotic step that requires necessary legal measures," Madani said on his Twitter account while condemning the republication of the anti-Islam cartoons.

"These cartoons have hurt the sentiments of Muslims across the world," said Madani.

"Freedom of speech must not become a hate speech and must not offend others. No sane person, irrespective of doctrine, religion or faith, accepts his beliefs being ridiculed," he added.
