RABAT (IINA) – While newspapers across the world have paid tribute to Aylan Kurdi, the Syrian toddler who became the symbol of the refugee crisis, Charlie Hebdo has featured cartoons of the toddler, mocking his death, Morocco World News reported.

Eight months after the terrorist attack that hit its headquarters in Paris in January, the French satirical magazine is back to the spotlight with a new controversial set of cartoons.
Hiding behind the freedom of speech, Charilie Hebdo made fun of the death of Aylan Kurdi, who was found dead recently on a Turkish beach, in two offensive drawings.
Entitled “So Close to His Goal”, the first drawing features Aylan lying face down on the sand near a publicity board of a 2-for-1 McDonald Happy Meal saying what translates into: “Two menus of children for the price of one.”
The second cartoon is entitled “The Proof that Europe is Christian.” It shows the little child drowning in the waters. On the left side, a man, supposedly Jesus, stands on the water while saying “Christians walk on waters… Muslims kids sink.”
Charlie Hebdo received harsh criticism on social media over these offensive drawings, with many twitter users labeling this move as “disrespectful.”
