Caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad and materials lampooning religion and politics are planned to be published when the next issue of France’s satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, with a staggering 1 million copies slated, the magazine’s lawyer said on Monday.

“Naturally, we’ll stay the course, otherwise it will make no sense at all,” Richard Malka told France Info radio when asked about the content of the magazine’s upcoming issue to hit the stores Wednesday.

“Je suis Charlie" — is a state of you mind, it is also about your right to blaspheme… "Je suis Charlie" is about your right to criticize religion because there is nothing wrong about it. You have no right to criticize a Jew for being a Jew, a Muslim for being a Muslim a Christian for being a Christian, but you are absolutely free to say anything, even dirty things – and that’s exactly what we do – about Christianity, Judaism and Islam,” Malka added.
