(ANSAmed) – PARIS, JULY 5 – A confidential statement to French President Emmanuel Macron by one of his closest collaborators and published Thursday by French daily Le Monde outlines a plan to regulate Islam by making financing transparent and better integrating the community based on the principles of French social and economic life.
The plan was drawn up by Macron collaborator Hakim El Karoui, and provides for the creation of an association managed by French Muslims that will train and pay the imams, remodel the mosques and manage communication.
It will be financed by a tax on halal food products and on pilgrimages to Mecca, as well as by a tax exemption on donations by followers.(ANSAmed).
