Following Islamophobic remarks hurled by the French President Emmanuel Macron, Muslims across the globe are protesting the display of blasphemous caricatures of Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) on a government building in France.

Considering this as a matter of religious grievance and offence, actor Hamza Ali Abbasi too, is at the forefront of the condemnation as he opened up on social media to share his two cents regarding the matter.

"It is your right to disagree and criticise but it is not your right to mock with the intent to deliberately insult and provoke. It is immoral, unethical and uncivilised; and the only way we muslims can make the world understand that is solely by peace and dialogue - not murder, war and hostility," he posted.

Using other religious and holy places of worships as an example, the Parwaaz Hai Junoon actor took to defend his own, voicing his distaste on the sketches and discrimination altogether.

"What if Muslims organize a contest of throwing cow meat on a Ram statue? Or who can slaughter the most pigs in a synagogue, or who can spit on a cross with the most accuracy. It's evil. Same applies in the case of making insulting cartoons of a man held sacred by more than 1.5 billion people," he protested.
