French Muslims’ Mosque rights denied by rightists

France is not providing its Muslim citizens enough Mosques to pray in. This becomes evident especially during the holy fasting month of Ramadan when worshippers are forced to pray in the streets. “We don’t have enough room for worshipers in ordinary days let alone Ramadan, which see more and more Muslims flocking to mosques for Tarawih prayers,” Al-Hajj Amadou, an official with the Fatah Mosque in Paris’ 18th district, told IOL. Ziyad, 34, said this Ramadan an increasing number of Muslims are preferring to pray at mosques: “To my way of thinking, the recent media campaigns against Islam and Muslims, like the controversial cartoons of our beloved prophet (pbuh), are motivating Muslims to cling to their identity and religion.”
