Turkey said it will take legal and diplomatic steps in response to a caricature of President Tayyip Erdogan in the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. Turkish anger at the caricature added fuel to a row between Turkey and France about cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad (Peace Be Upon Him) which flared after a teacher who had shown pupils the cartoons in a lesson on freedom of speech was beheaded in France this month. The disrespectful cartoon on the cover of Charlie Hebdo showed Erdogan sitting in a white T-shirt and underpants, holding a canned drink along with a woman wearing a hijab. Top officials in the Muslim world have condemned France and Macron, including Pakistan, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and Iran; while tens of thousands have attended protests and called for a boycott of French goods. Turkish presidential communications director Fahrettin Altun said “Macron’s anti-Muslim agenda is bearing fruit!.” “We condemn this most disgusting effort by this publication to spread its cultural racism and hatred,” Altun wrote on Twitter. Erdogan sharply criticized Macron at the weekend, saying the French leader needed a mental health check, prompting France to recall its ambassador from Ankara. On Monday, Erdogan urged a boycott of French products.
