Hong Kong’s Kowloon Mosque stands out from anti-French protests


Hong Kong’s largest mosque has distanced itself from an anti-France demonstration outside its doors last week.

After Friday prayers at the Kowloon Mosque, a group of around 100 Muslims demonstrated against French President Emmanuel Macron after defending the right to display caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

Macron was speaking after an attack on October 16, when a Muslim extremist beheaded a French teacher in the streets of Paris to ‘avenge’ Mohammad’s insults, after the teacher showed caricatures of the prophet in a classroom on freedom of expression.
