The Turkish president considered that the French president’s previous statements that “(Islam is in crisis) in a city with a Muslim population is an outright provocation as well as a lack of respect,” as he put it.
Macron stated that “those who avoid confronting racism and Islamophobia commit the greatest offense to their societies.”Regarding the previous statements made by the French President on “restructuring Islam”, Erdogan affirmed that “it is rude and rude for the French president to talk about restructuring Islam.”
Earlier, French President Emmanuel Macron said, on Friday, that the authorities intend to make all efforts to combat “Islamist separatism” and defend the principles of the republic and the secularism of the state.
Macron said during a lengthy speech about what he called “Islamist separatism” in France: “We must combat Islamist separatism that tries to promote principles that are not compatible with the principles of our republic.”
“In France there is an extremist Islam that tries to create a parallel system to tighten its control, and the Islamic religion is currently in a state of crisis in the whole world,” he added.
Macron stressed the need not to mix between Islamist separatism and Islam, considering that religious freedom in France is a right.
Macron announced his intention to put forward a bill on “Islamist separatism” and “strengthening secularism” on the ninth of next December, with the aim of combating extremist tendencies.
Macron acknowledged that the state failed and dealt inappropriately with immigrants, which led to the emergence of extremism, which benefited from the absence of the state.
Macron condemned the “ghettos” that had formed in some neighborhoods, and announced the strengthening of monitoring of Islamic associations and the strengthening of monitoring of the funds received by mosques in France.
Macron indicated that the authorities intend to “liberate France’s Islam from foreign interference,” referring to the funds that come from Islamic countries in addition to bringing in imams from abroad.
Macron called for “improving understanding of the Islamic religion and teaching the Arabic language”, announcing an end to the system of preparing imams and educating them abroad.
