French gov’t unveils a plan to promote dialogue with Muslims

French Interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve has proposed a plan aiming at promoting a better dialogue with France’s Muslim community, that notably includes training of imams at university. The plan would promote an Islam “faithful to the values of the Republic,” Cazeneuve said Wednesday, insisting on France’s tradition of secularism. He says the creation of a new representative body would help Muslim leaders and French authorities to address issues such as security, prevention of radicalization and preventing anti-Muslims acts. The training at university would be mandatory for Muslim chaplains who work in prisons.
