Now they want to take away our freedom.. thats why religion must die.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday said that an insult on the high values of Islam and Holy Prophet Muhammad could not be branded freedom of expression or beliefs.
Speaking to reporters in Yalta city of Ukraine, Erdogan stressed that insults on religions, prophets and sacred values of humans could not be viewed as freedom of ideas or criticism.
The film against Islam was an open provocation and was shot with enmity, Erdogan underlined.
“I want to remind the Muslims of the world one more time. The film was a serious provocation and highly serious instigation. Those who have resorted to violence after the instigation have provocation against the Muslims,” Erdogan also said.
Prime Minister Erdogan’s comments came after an anti-Islamic movie “Innocence of Muslims” sparked global protests and outrage in the Muslim world.
