Qur’an Best-Seller in France

Following the publication of cartoons desecrating Islamic sanctities in France, the Holy Qur’an and books about Islam are becoming best-sellers in the country.
According to lexpress.fr website, the number of people buying the Qur’an and Islamic books in French bookstores has skyrocketed since a French satirical magazine published cartoons depicting Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
On January 14, Charlie Hebdo, whose Paris office was attacked by two gunmen on January 7, once again published a cartoon of Islam’s Holy Prophet on the cover of its new edition despite warnings that the move is provocative. The sacrilegious move sparked protests and condemnation from Muslims all over the world.
In France, the move has made people more interested in learning about Islam for themselves. A book shop owner in Paris says all the Qur’an copies in his shop have run out. Another one says the sale of Qur’an translations in French has increased three to four times in recent weeks.
