Islamabad (Pak Destiny) The latest issue of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo containing more controversial cartoons hit newsstands today and sold out within minutes.
It seems the dirty trick of ‘cashing in’ on the killing of its staff paid off by the Charlie Hebdo.
Charlie Hebdo used to publish 60,000 copies per edition. But after the killing of 12 members of its staff at the hands of two Muslim brothers – who avenged for committing blasphemy in the honour of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) – published 3million copies in six languages with more controversial cartoons to make maximum bucks to cash in on the blood of its staff. Isn’t it a big shame for those preaching “Freedom of Expression”. Its double standards in fact of the West.
The Telegraph reported Smiths News and Menzies in the United Kingdom are planning to purchase up to 2,000 copies to supply to stores.
In Turkey, the Cumhuriyet newspaper reported police allowed distribution of the issue as long as any religiously sensitive cartoons were removed.
The cover reads “Tout est pardonné,” or “All is forgiven.” – Pak Destiny
