French Muslims condemn attack on Charlie Hebdo
Democracy and Class Struggle just like the muslim community does not like the Charlie Hebdo cartoons which have helped stoke anti muslim racism in France and strongly condemns the execution of its journalists.
Notions of blasphemy and apostasy - essentially medieval ideas should not be defended by communists.
Abstract notions of "free speech" for communists are mediated by the class struggle.
"This extremely grave barbaric action is also an attack against democracy and the freedom of the press," the French Muslim Council (CFCM) said in a statement.
The body represents France's Muslim community, which is Europe's biggest and estimated to number between 3.5 million and five million people.
CFCM president Dalil Boubakeur, who heads the Paris Mosque, planned to visit the scene of the shooting, his entourage said.
The Muslim council also called for calm and urged Muslims to beware of extremist manipulation.
"In this tense international climate stoked by the madness of terrorist groups unjustly claiming to represent Islam, we call on all those attached to the republic's values and to democracy to avoid provocation", it said.
The Muslim community must practice "the greatest vigilance towards possible manipulation by extremist groups," it added.
