Leaders of the Islamic world have accused France of promoting Islamophobia. Political leaders in Turkey and Pakistan have rounded on  Macron, accusing him of not respecting "freedom of belief" and marginalizing the millions of Muslims in France.

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan accused Macron of creating divisions among people. He also wrote a letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg seeking a ban on Islamophobic content on the site, warning of an increase in radicalization amongst Muslims.

Turkish President Erdogan has said that the Muslims in Europe are subjected to the lynching camping like jews before world war II. He also called for boycotting French products.

"I am calling on the people, do not go near French goods, do not buy them,"

Jordan is also removing french products. Shopkeepers in Oman covered up shelves that contain french products including makeup, dairy products, and kitchen utensils brand as well.

Large numbers of supermarkets in Qatar removed french products.

Several other Arab companies withdraw French products from supermarkets in response to Macron’s statements on Islam.

In Kuwait, a non-governmental chain of hypermarkets said that over 50 of its outlets planned to boycott French products.

Social media platforms are also abuzz with such posters calling for a boycott of French products. There have also been protests in a number of countries, including Bangladesh, Iraq, Libya, and Syria.

Macron doubled down on his stance and said,

"We will not give in, ever," Macron said on Twitter Sunday. "We respect all differences in a spirit of peace. We do not accept hate speech and defend reasonable debate. We will always be on the side of human dignity and universal values."

On the other hand, France urges Arab Countries to stop the boycott of French products.

In a statement, the French foreign ministry acknowledged the moves, writing: "These calls for boycott are baseless and should stop immediately, as well as all attacks against our country, which are being pushed by a radical minority."
