Following the statements of the country’s president, Emmanuel Macron, against Islam
لانعدام الأمن .. جمعية إسلامية تنقل مقرها من فرنسا
عقب تصريحات رئيس البلاد إيمانويل ماكرون ضد الإسلام
The Association Against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) announced its intention to move its headquarters outside France, due to its lack of safety, following the statements of President Emmanuel Macron, against Islam and Muslims.
The association, which does work on Muslims who face discrimination and attacks in France, reported that it had been subjected to numerous slanders and abuse during the last week, according to a statement.
The statement clarified that the French government stood idly by about what the Islamic Society had been subjected to, stressing that there was no other anti-racism association that was exposed to what the “CCIF” was subjected to.
He added that Islamophobia has become natural with the passage of time, in the name of combating terrorism and extremism.
With regard to the French government’s statements about its intention to close the Islamic Society, the statement stated that “these statements send frightening messages to the Muslims of France.”
He stressed that the association does not feel safe under the prevailing circumstances in France, indicating that it will move its headquarters to continue its activities outside France, without specifying the new destination of the association.
And last week, the Association “Rally Against Islamophobia in France” resorted to the United Nations Human Rights Council, due to the position of President Emmanuel Macron’s administration towards Muslims in the country.
On October 13, the French Interior Minister, Gerard Darmanan, revealed that the authorities had closed 73 mosques, a private school and a commercial shop since the beginning of this year, under the pretext of “fighting extremist Islam.”
During the past few days, France witnessed the publication of insulting pictures and drawings of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, on the facades of buildings in France.
And last Wednesday, Macron said in press statements that France will not give up the (offensive) “cartoons”, which sparked a wave of anger throughout the Islamic world, and campaigns were launched in some countries boycotting French products and goods.
