Aftermath of beheading a French National teacher by a 18 year old Muslim boy for showing Prophet Muhammed photo in his class, the french President Emmanuel Macron is facing backlash. In the midst of this row, China's state-run channel China Central Television (CCTV) has broadcast a portrait of Prophet Muhammad in TV series.
In the series, a scene showing an Arab ambassador visiting China during the rule of Tang dynasty gifts a portrait of the Prophet Muhammad to the Chinese emperor. The video has gone viral in China with the ambassador in the show declaring:“This is the portrait of the God of our country, Muhammad". The Chinese TV show openly showing the portrait of the Prophet has taken web users by surprise in China. Netizens asks whether it is blasphemous to show Prophet Muhammad’s paintings so openly in a TV show. Most of the Muslims across the world consider any depictions of their prophet, to be blasphemous.
French President openly said France will not give up cartoons. Boycott France and anti-Macron protests erupted in most Muslim countries. Few netizens have been wondering whether the Muslim world will now boycott Chinese goods after Prophet Muhamed was displayed in the Chinese TV series amid large scale reports of Chinese repression of Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang.
