Muslims call for doubling number of mosques in France

France Now  Renamed Northern Algeria

  • The insane Western leaders keep importing millions of Muslims who hate the very culture they are being brought to. 

(AFP News)  -  The number of mosques in France should be doubled over the next two years in order to provide an adequate number of places of worship for the country’s millions of faithful, a top Muslim leader said Saturday.

Dalil Boubakeur, president of the French Muslim Council, said France’s current total of 2,200 mosques was not enough to adequately represent one of Europe's largest Muslim communities.

"We need double (that number) within two years," Boubakeur said during the 32nd edition of the Annual Gathering of French Muslims, a four-day event that brings together more than 250 Muslim associations from across the country.

"There are a lot of prayer rooms, of unfinished mosques, and there are a lot of mosques that are not being built," he added.

Amar Lasfar, president of the Union of Islamic Organisations of France (UOIF), which organises the gathering, agreed.

“The number of mosques must reflect the number of Muslims (in France),” he said.

There are an estimated four to five million Muslims in France, though Boubakeur put the number at seven million. A ban on asking direct questions about race and religion by state bodies when compiling census data makes an exact figure difficult to establish.

Boubaker did not specify how the new mosques could be funded – something likely to be a significant hurdle to their construction.

However, Lasfar noted that “fewer and fewer” mayors of French towns and cities “systematically oppose the construction of mosques”, which could make their construction easier.

“We have the right to build mosques, (the right) that mayors do not oppose it," he added.
