Recently retired UFC fighter Khabib Nurmagomedov has slammed French President Emmanuel Macron’s latest Islamophobic feedback which have sparked outrage within the Muslim world.
The MMA star, taking to Instagram, shared a photograph that has a boot print over the face of the French president.
“May the Almighty disfigure the face of this creature and all its followers, who, under the slogan of freedom of speech, offend the feelings of more than one and a half billion Muslim believers,” Khabib wrote.
“May the Almighty humiliate them in this life, and in the next. Allah is quick in calculation and you will see it,” he added.
The put up went on to state: “We are Muslims, we love our Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) more than our mothers, fathers, children, wives and all other people close to our hearts. Believe me, these provocations will come back to them, the end is always for the God-fearing.”
The MMA fighter — who has 25 million followers on Instagram — has obtained virtually two million likes on his put up.
Muslims across the globe are incensed at Macron after the French president referred to Islam as a faith “in crisis” and refused to “give up” caricatures depicting Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
For Muslims, any depiction of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is seen as an insult and deeply offends the group.
Following Macron’s feedback, a number of Muslim nations, together with Turkey, Qatar, Jordan, Kuwait, and Pakistan have responded strongly, with some calling for a boycott of French merchandise.
