French Muslims to create foundation to finance mosques
A new foundation will be created to help finance mosques in France and keep out radical benefactors, the head of the French Muslim Council said Monday.
Anouar Kbibech proposed the foundation would be used to fund the construction and running of mosques and would be financed by fees paid by actors in the halal food sector.
France, home to Europe's largest Muslim community, is a secular state that prohibits the use of state money for places of worship. Prime minister Manuel Valls said Sunday he wants to put an end to the financing from abroad for the construction of mosques.
