"The demarche staged by FEMEN is irresponsible and deceitful. It is a denial of the freedom of expression. Our company and several families have appealed to a court," IslaEvents, the company which organized the event, said in a statement.
In their turn, the two girls who staged the protests want to file a lawsuit for violence against the organizers of the conference.
Last Saturday, two girls ran on stage in front of two imams who were discussing the "to beat or not to beat a woman" dilemma. The activists were topless.
FEMEN claims its female activists were protesting against “womanophobia” and violence against women they say is widespread among Muslims, as stated in an online release.
The protest was quickly disrupted, but some unidentified participants of the conference reportedly slapped and kicked the girls.
FEMEN is a radical feminist group which was founded in Ukraine in 2008 and now based in Paris. The group has become famous for its activists protesting topless against a wide range of issues, including gender, religion, homophobia and sexism, as well as on international topics.
