FactO Check:

We found an article published in The Week, “Protests in Bhopal against French president”, and according to the article, the Bhopal protest was against French President Emmanuel Macron and not in support of terror attacks or beheading of the teacher. Another article from News 18, “Bhopal Congress MLA Leads Thousands in Protest Against French President Macron’s Islam Crackdown”.

Quoted from News 18 -“Protesters led by Bhopal’s Congress MLA Arif Masood gathered at the historic Iqbal Maidan, holding placards that said ‘Prophet Muhammad is our Honour’ and stomped on pictures of the ‘devil’ Macron that were scattered on the ground”. As per both articles, it’s clear the protest against French president.

Today there was a protest held in Mumbai Bhendi Bazar, where protesters taped the roads with France President’s pictures. According to ABP news, this protest was also against France President and not in support of Terrorists who killed 3 people in a church, France.
