PARIS: French cartoonist Luz, who drew Charlie Hebdo’s cover picture of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) following the massacre of the satirical weekly’s editorial team, has said he will no longer draw the Prophet (PBUH).
Armed men claiming to be avenging the Prophet (PBUH) killed 12 people when they attacked the Paris offices of the weekly magazine, known for lampooning Islam along with other religions.
For Muslims, any depiction of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is blasphemous.
“The terrorists did not win,” Luz told Les Inrockuptibles magazine in an interview published on its website on Wednesday.
“They will have won if the whole of France continues to be scared.”
