A video of French President Emmanuel Macron being hit by an egg, is being shared on social media. The post is being shared in the backdrop of his recent remarks on caricatures of Prophet Mohammad.
On October 16, 2020, a history teacher, Samuel Paty, was beheaded outside his school near a Paris suburb for showing caricatures of Prophet Mohammad to his students.
However, defending the reprinting of caricatures, President Macron said that France would never renounce its right to caricature, which led to huge anti-France protests in many countries.
“अंडे पड़ने की शुरुवात हो चुकी है फ्रांस के राष्ट्रपति पर। अभी तो और जलील होना है” the post read in Hindi.
(Translation: Eggs are being thrown at President of France. More insult is coming his way now.)
