    (ANSAmed) - ROME, OCTOBER 27 - Appeals to boycott French products are growing in the Muslim world in protest over French President Emmanuel Macron's public defence of caricatures of the prophet Muhammad, which Islam considers blasphemous.

    In Kuwait, a non-government chain of supermarkets said more than 50 of its locations plan to boycott French products, reported CNN online.

    A boycott campaign is also underway in Jordan, where some food stores have put up signs stating that they do not sell French products.

    Various stores in Qatar are doing the same, including the Al Meera supermarket chain, which has more than 50 locations in the Arab country.

    The University of Qatar announced that it has indefinitely postponed its "French Culture Week". (ANSAmed).
