After the growing number of terrorist attacks in France, the demand for an entry ban for migrants seems to be increasing. Meanwhile, French opposition leader Marine Le Pen has launched a new debate calling for a ban on migrants from Pakistan. On Friday, a violent crowd of thousands attempted to attack the French embassy in Islamabad. At the same time, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan is also making statements against France these days.
Request for ban of Pakistani citizens
Marine Le Pen wrote in a tweet that due to the violent protests in Bangladesh today, I am calling for an immediate ban on migrants from Bangladesh and Pakistan in the name of national security. He claimed that protesters in Bangladesh spoke of slapping the French ambassador. Their request is also supported by a large number of French people.
Attempted attack on the French embassy in Pakistan
The protest turned violent in Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, when nearly 2,000 people attempted to reach the French embassy. Police fired tear gas and used batons to disperse the protesters. Protesters shouted slogans and blocked roads in Lahore, Pakistan. Protesters in Multan burned the effigies of French President Emmanuel Macron.

Demonstrations are ongoing in Bangladesh
In Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh, frequent protests against France took place over several days. About 50,000 people attended the protest on Friday and blew off the macro effigy. People shouted slogans to stop racism and hatred against Islam, and called for a boycott of French products.
Macros protests intensify in Muslim countries
There are frequent protests in Muslim countries against French President Emmanuel Macron. The French president has called all terrorist attacks in his country Islamic terrorism. This is why Muslim countries are angry. He said that Islam is a religion in crisis all over the world today. He also said he was concerned that the French population of around six million Muslims was isolated from the mainstream of society. Since then, protests against the French president have intensified.
