France: no more mosques without more rules
A French senator has called for more rules to be introduced before more mosques can be built in France, after the French Council of the Muslim Faith called for the number of Islamic places of worship to be doubled in the country.
French Senator Herve Maurey said in an interview with newspaper Le Figaro published on Monday that more transparency about funding and construction plans were among a number of regulations which should be enacted before mosque construction was increased.
He said: "Currently, a mayor who sees a mosque being built does not know how the place of worship is being funded.
