French Supreme Council of the Muslim community, on Tuesday, filed a complaint against Facebook and Twitter. The council claimed that the reason for this was a live broadcast of a terrorist attack video on two mosques in New Zealand. The council also said that the attack was a terrorist crime, and emphasized that “attacking the prayers and worshipers is a real shortcoming of human dignity, and that children may have access to the video after publishing images of the violence on Facebook and Twitter.»
The French Muslim Council (CFCM) was founded in 2003. This non-governmental organization is active in relation to the Muslim community of France and religious affairs and is also associated with the government. The French Penal Code will penalize at least three years imprisonment and a fine of 75,000 euros if proved.
