A teenager from Grenoble is at the centre of a debate on freedom of expression and the right to blaspheme, this after she became a target of death threats for criticising Islam online. The divisive discussion that has followed is a reminder of the aftermath of the 'Charlie Hebdo' shooting. The satirical magazine's mockery of religion led its journalists to be targeted by vengeful jihadists. #JeSuisMila (I am Mila) is the online campaign of support for free speech in all its forms, even where it offends, in an echo of the #JeSuisCharlie hashtag that emerged after the 2015 terror attack.
