Thousands gathered Sunday afternoon in Paris for a march against Islamophobia that had markedly divided the French political class in recent days.

“Yes to criticism of religion, no to hatred of believers”, “Stop Islamophobia”, “Co-existing is urgent,” read some of the signs held aloft at the demonstration as marchers set off from the Gare du Nord train station in the French capital. “Solidarity with veiled women”, some participants chanted.

The rally, held at the initiative of a number of left-wing political organisations including the New Anticapitalist Party (NPA) and groups including the Collective Against Islamophobia in France, was called for by the left-leaning daily Libération on November 1, four days after a man attacked a mosque in Bayonne and amid the flare of renewed debate over Muslim women wearing the veil in public establishments like schools.

In Paris , the Collective against Islamophobia in France (CCIF) is holding a march to call a halt to discrimination and aggression against Muslims across the country. It comes just a couple of weeks after two people were seriously wounded during a shooting at a mosque by an alleged far-right

But the rally drew criticism from the far-right National Rally party (formerly the National Front), which accused organisers of forming an alliance with “Islamists”. It also spurred divisions among political parties on the left.

Some critics questioned “the very definition" of Islamophobia, said FRANCE 24’s Alison Sargent, reporting from the march in central Paris, with many “saying that they feel 'Islamophobia' means that you are not allowed to criticise Islam as a religion".

"They feel that is anti-French, that the very meaning of being French is being able to criticise religion, and that that is at the heart of French secularism,” she said.

But at the rally in Paris, many marchers insisted Islam and French secularism are indeed compatible. “We’ve also seen a lot of French flags here, so it’s quite a patriotic rally in its own way,” Sargent said.


Islamophobia 'alarming' issue: Aust study .
Anti-Muslim sentiment and behaviour is increasingly taking place in guarded and patrolled public locations, new Australian data shows. More than half of all reported non-online Islamophobic incidents in Australia over a two-year period occurred in guarded or patrolled areas, a new report has found, prompting fears anti-Muslim abuse is spilling into the open. The report - released on Monday - also found that security guards and cameras did not deter Islamophobic incidents from taking place and neither did the presence of bystanders.
