Macron wants Muslims to sign up to 'republican values'
PARIS, 20 Nov. - (ANA) - French president Emmanuel Macron asked Muslim leaders on Wednesday to accept a "charter of Republican values" as part of a broad clampdown on radical Islam following a wave of Islamist terror attacks.
The charter will state that Islam is a religion and not a political movement, and prohibiting "foreign interference" in Muslim groups.
He gave the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM) a 15-day ultimatum to accept it. - (ANA) -
