“A firm confrontation with the desecration of the status of the Prophet Muhammad is the duty of every Muslim,” conservative parliament member Zohreh Tabibzadeh announced, in opposition to the newspaper, according to Al-Monitor.
Officials previously condemned the newspaper for the headline, with legislators threatening the Minister of Culture with impeachment if she does not act on the matter, according to Fars News
The headline was part of a George Clooney interview, and was quoting his support for the newspaper.
Iran officially condemned the attacks on the Charlie Hebdo newspaper, but also takes a highly critical stance on its publications of Muhammad, which are considered insulting to Muslims.
On January 7, Charlie Hebdo's Paris office was attacked by gunmen, who murdered 12 people and injured another 11. Two of the terrorists responsible for the attack were later shot by police after an extensive manhunt, and a third suspect turned himself in.
