The Muslim Rashtriya Manch, a pro-RSS Muslim organisation, held a demonstration in Hyderabad on Saturday in protest against ‘Islamophobia’ in France and its president Emmanuel Macron.

The Muslim Rashtriya Manch had faced some resistance earlier in the year when it had organised an event in support of the Citizenship Amendment Act. Then, their event was disrupted by anti-CAA protesters who raised slogans against the CAA and the NRC. The MRM is said to have a significant following in Hyderabad and parts of Telangana.

Protests have erupted all over the Muslim world after French President Emmanuel Macron defended the right of people to draw cartoons of the prophet of Islam. India was no exception. In Bhopal, a Congress leader organised a protest against Macron’s ‘Islamophobia’. Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) student leader Farhan Zuberi threatened to behead those who insulted Islam and was booked for it.
