In the wake of derogatory caricatures about the Prophet Muhammad, there have been widespread demonstrations in the Muslim world against the so called freedom of speech and against Charlie Hebdo.

More than 2,000 Iranians also protested outside French embassy in Tehran urging the ambassador to be expelled, while protesters marched through Grozny in Chechnya carrying posters that read 'Hands off our beloved prophet.'

Protesters gathered in the main market square in Bannu, Pakistan, chanting 'Death to the government of France', before setting fire to dozens of French flags and an effigy of the former French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
