"We live this announcement of dissolution as a real political and institutional denial of anti-Muslim racism", writes the collective in this press release. "It sends a terrible message to citizens of Muslim faith:" You do not have the right to defend your rights. And the association which asserts the laws of our democracy to assist you in respecting your freedoms is now a target "". In response, the CCIF therefore "activated a comprehensive plan to deploy a large part of (its) activities abroad".

Anonymous threats

Asked by Liberation about this desire for "internationalization", the director of the CCIF, Jawad Bachare, indicates that "we must see this announcement as an evolution, given that we cannot carry out our work on civil rights. We will perhaps go to London, Switzerland or Brussels to claim protection and continue our action in France ”. Bachare affirms that this decision is also due to a desire for security, the CCIF saying it is threatened since the statements by Gérald Darmanin: "We receive anonymous threats, letters, it's impressive. We are consolidating everything we have received, and we are already reporting to the authorities that there are threats to our business. I have a network of 200 volunteers who work in partnership with many local associations. Now it is clearly becoming targets. The state needs to protect us, but instead the Minister of the Interior is throwing us into retaliation. "

Last week, the Interior Ministry indicated that the procedure for dissolving the CCIF requires a decree in the Council of Ministers. This will be based on a "dual foundation", including "what concerns the apology of terrorism and identity and religious hatred" and "what concerns public order".

Terry Glavin: Trudeau's incoherence has disappointed the French and all Muslims .
French President Emmanuel Macron could really use some friends right now. He’s being burned in effigy, and bloodcurdling vows to avenge the Prophet Muhammad have been shouted in street protests in Bangladesh, Egypt, Kuwait, Qatar and Palestine. The world’s theocracies are taking aim at him and at the economy of the French republic itself, the birthplace of liberté, égalité and fraternité. It’s a shame no help is coming from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whose point-missing incoherence has sidelined Canada in the effort to defend France in its current agonies.
