Luz is tired of drawing sacrilegious cartoons

The magazine, which was regularly struggling to make ends meet, is now backed up by tens of millions of euros of funding.

French cartoonist Luz, who drew the cover picture of the Prophet Muhammad after the deadly attack on the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo in January, has said he will no longer draw the prophet.

"He no longer interests me," Luz told Les Inrockuptibles in an interview published on its website on Wednesday.

"I've got tired of it, just as I got tired of drawing Sarkozy. I'm not going to spend my life drawing them."

We do not know what kind of tiredness he meant, either he is done with drawing sacrilegious cartoons or he felt that drawing sacred personality in a negative way will not give him or anyone else benefits.

Defiant charlie Hebdo covers angered Muslims and hurt their feelings. 

Yemen's al-Qaeda branch claimed responsibility for the attack when two masked gunmen killed 12 people at the office of the weekly magazine in Paris, along with two police officers.

Later on the magazine's first edition after attack showed again cartoon of Muhammad on it's cover saying 'Je Suis Charlie' and written 'All is forgiven in underline.

After that attack, Muslim against riots took place and killed so many in Europe while many Muslim lead rallies were seen against that brutal attack on Charlie Hebdo office.

This decision of Luz was welcomed by all Muslims around the world.
