France – Street Prayers Banned after Burqa Ban maintaining secular principals

France – Street Prayers Banned after Burqa Ban maintaining secular principals

On Friday, France enacted the street prayer ban.

On the first day more than 2,000 worshippers turned up to pray inside, instead of outside in adjoining streets.

The fire station is supposed to be a temporary solution while the Muslim community awaits a new mosque.

Interior Minister Claude Gueant directed Muslims in Paris to temporary spaces made available pending the building of a huge new prayer space.
Minister warned that "from September 16 there will be no more prayers in the street".
He said "If anyone happens to be recalcitrant we will put an end to it," this means law will follow its procedure and police will act and will take action.
Gueant said that "Prayers in the street are unacceptable, a direct attack on the principle of secularism,"
One of the reasons for ban is to maintain republic secular and maintain secular values.

France has a policy of keeping state and church that is religion different and it’s strictly followed.
In France, where a strict separation of church and state has been in force for a century, public displays of religious activity are frowned upon.

Important is law is followed and implemented not like India where is law and to we need to make another law so that the first law is followed and the simple reason for this is that no fear of punishment and even if punishment is given it’s so useless that everyone enjoys the corruption fruits if gets opportunity.

In Paris, a former barracks just north of the city limits has been designated the new prayer area for those living in the multi-ethnic Goutte d'Or neighbourhood.
