French President Emmanuel Macron has claimed he will “lay the groundwork for the entire organisation of Islam in France” in the first half of this year.
He said that he aims to fight fundamentalism and preserve the “national cohesion” of France with his ambitious programme, in an interview with the Journal du Dimanche on Sunday. …
“We are working on the structuring of Islam in France and also on how to explain it, which is extremely important,” Mr. Macron said.
“My goal is to rediscover what lies at the heart of laïcité [the French concept of secularism], the possibility of being able to believe as not to believe, in order to preserve national cohesion and the possibility of having free consciousness.”
