There were some Islamophobic incidents that took place in the EU targeting Islam. In France, Charlie Hebdo published cartoons; in Denmark, Jyllands-Posten published cartoons; and in Norway, people publicly burnt the Koran.
In the EU, this is protected by the freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
I have three questions here:
- What is the policy of the Russian Federation regarding this kind of Islamophobia or other religious phobia?
- Is there any other country in the world outside the EU that allows this kind of Islamophobia and consider it protected by freedom of expression/speech?
- What is the status of this kind of freedom of speech/expression after the anti-Islamophobia resolution passed at the UNGA?
