Co-ops, citizens and residents to boycott French products
January 21, 2015, 8:45 am

In a move similar to measures taken by a number of cooperative societies the Chairman of Purchase Department at the Ahmadi Cooperative Society Farhan Al-Enezi has issued an administrative circular directed at all managers of markets and their aides and officials of the grocery stores and its branches not to receive any supplies from companies of French origin, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

In a related development, some citizens and residents have begun a campaign to boycott French products via the social networking sites in response to a religious satire published by the French magazine against Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

Activists across social media networking websites called for a peaceful gathering at the Erada Square this week to condemn those who offend Islam and other religions in the name of the freedom of opinion and expression.
