The magazine has previously sparked anger over its portrayals of Muslims but its publisher said this is completely different.<br /> <br /> Stephane Charbonnier, known as Charb, defended the comic book and its drawings.<br /> <br /> “Islam is the second religion in the country in terms of churchgoers, and in fact nobody knows anything about Mohammed, nobody knows anything about this religion.”<br /> <br /> “It’s a religion that scares people because every time we talk about it, it’s when we talk about bomb attacks committed by an extreme minority. So I think that maybe we should have started with introducing Mohammed and introducing Islam before making fun of it or with it.”<br /> <br /> Charlie Hebdo was forced to move into new premises in Paris after its offices were destroyed in a fire-bomb attack in November 2011.<br /> <br /> It came after the magazine retitled itself “Sharia Hebdo”, a reference to Islamic law and showed caricatures of radical Muslims.

Also, these few people shouldn’t be confused with the vast majority of our fellow citizens they are caricaturing Islam as it is practised in our country.”<br /> <br /> Muslim leaders in France have condemned the film and called for calm and vigilance.<br /> <br /> Elsewhere in Europe the German government has barred notorious US preacher Terry Jones from visiting the country amid public order concerns after a far-right group invited the Florida pastor to Germany.<br /> <br /> Jones caused uproar in the past with his plan for a public burning of the Koran.<br /> <br /> The pro-Deutschland group want to stage a screening of the now infamous film in Berlin.<br /> <br /> The German government says it will resort to law to block it.

She is accused of burning Islamic religious texts.<br /> <br /> There have been conflicting reports about Rimsha Masih’s age and her mental state. Some media have said she is 11 and suffers from Down’s Syndrome.<br /> <br /> But what is certain is that her arrest has sparked outrage in Pakistan and abroad. Activists and human rights groups say vague terminology has led to its misuse, and that the law dangerously discriminates against the Muslim country’s tiny minority groups.<br /> <br /> Several hundred Christians left her poor village outside the capital Islamabad after mosques reported over their loudspeakers what the girl was alleged to have done.<br /> <br /> Under Pakistan’s blasphemy law, anyone who speaks ill of Islam and the Prophet Mohammad commits a crime and faces the death penalty.<br /> A bail hearing will be held on Monday for Masih
