More than 36 non-governmental organizations from 13 countries have complained about discrimination against Muslims in France. The French government’s campaign against “Islamist separatism” has also been criticized by local politicians, such as the mayor of Montmagny
A coalition of lawyers and the organization provided the UN with evidence of “numerous violations of human rights that must be protected by the laws ratified by Paris.” The complaint says that since 1989 the French government began to pursue a policy of “structural Islamophobia and discrimination against Muslims.”
Examples include “illegal and violent” raids on Muslim homes and organizations, President Emmanuel Macron’s plans to combat “Islamist separatism,” the 2004 ban on hijab in schools, the 2010 ban on niqab in public places, and much more.
It is worth noting that such a policy of the French government and, in particular, Emmanuel Macron, can lead to disastrous consequences and thereby divide the country into warring camps.
