The horrific terrorist attack in Paris in 2014 at the office of the French magazine Charlie Hebdo is a direct assault on the freedom of speech, thought and expressions, the fundamentals on which all open, democratic societies are built. Ten staff members at the satirical weekly, including four of its top cartoonists, were gunned down by masked men who entered the building and targeted the editorial meeting in what seemed to be a well-planned and professional operation. They left shouting Alla-hu-Akbar, killing two policemen on the street outside before driving off in a gateway car. Since 2006, when it first published the Danish cartoons of Prophet Mohammad, Charlie Hebdo had been under threat of violent attacks by Islamist groups. Refusing to be intimidated, the publication continued to caricature Islam even after a fire bombing in November 2011, just as it also relentlessly lampooned Christianity and Judaism- It’s Christmas week cover caricaturing the birth of Jesus was designed to provoke and cause offence.
