Tehran, YJC. Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance spokesman Hossein Noushabadi stated on Wednesday that the West should not allow acts of disrespect for religious sanctities.

Noushabadi’s comments came in reaction to the new insulting move by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo against prophet Muhammad.

"Those who allow themselves to insult divine religions are not committed to any creed,” the Iranian official said while condemning Charlie Hebdo for insulting prophet Mohammad in its latest edition.

Following a terrorist attack on its office which killed a number of its cartoonists, the magazine has included in its new version a depiction of the prophet Muhammad in tears holding a sign that goes "Je Suis Charlie”.

Also on the same day, the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham deplored the magazine’s " repetition of wrongful act stirring resentment in Muslim World and” advised Europeans to respect religious sanctities.

She noted that the Islamic Republic of Iran condemns the terrorists attacks that rocked France last week, but in the meantime urged that Charlie Hebdo must stop its disrespectful approach to Islamic sanctities.

"We strongly denounce Charlie Hebdo’s provocative act. We believe that the wrongful act is going to hurt the feelings of the Muslim World,” she asserted.
