In a concert as a part of Turkish Festival in Paris, Muslims faced another insulting crisis against Islamic Prophet Mohammed after Danish cartoon crisis in 2005, a Turkish colomnist said.
Mehmet Sevket Eygi, a columnist in Milli Gazete, conveyed a letter from Muslim Turkish national who has been in the Petit Palais concert, an event held under the Turkish Festival.
Yasemin Berkol was quoted as saying in the letter that "In October 8, 2009, a concert was held in Petit Palais fine arts museum in Paris."
"The event was organized under Turkish Festival by France and was supported Tekfen firm and Fevziye Schools Association.
"Islamic Prophet Mohammed was insulted during th concert performed by Turkish and French musicians. I, as a Muslim, was so regretted and the silence among participants angered much more."
Fevziye Schools in Turkey are known with their hardline secularist education.
The music composition contained hard abrasive sentences against Prophet Mohammed and caliph Ali, saying "... Ah que soit maudit l'Arabe Mohamet et son successeur Ali, que le sol recouvre la Mecque, que tombe sens dessous-dessous Medinet al-nabî..."
This means ''Damn it Arabic Mohammed and his caliph Ali, chunk must blot out over Madina, Prophet's city Madina's under change its top."
Muslim woman Berkol said also that the lyrics of the composition was distributed in leaflets to participants.
However, Tekfen firm sent a statement to World Bulletin, that saying the firm did not support the concert.
