Anger towards Emmanuel Macron grows in Muslim world | The Guardian |

On the front page of a hardline Iranian newspaper, he was the "Demon of Paris". In the streets of Dhaka he was decried as a leader who "worships Satan". Outside Baghdad's French embassy, a likeness of Emmanuel Macron was burned along with France's flag.

Rage is growing across the Muslim world at the French president and his perceived attacks on Islam and the prophet Muhammad, leading to calls for boycotts of the French products and security warnings for France's citizens in majority-Muslim states.

The backlash has cut across an extraordinarily diverse Muslim world with a myriad of cultures, sects, political systems and levels of economic development. It has stoked historical and present-day grievances from the markets of Herat in Afghanistan to the upmarket neighbourhoods of Amman and the universities of Islamabad.
