Emmanuel Macron to propose reorganization of Islam in France

The French president said he wants to ‘preserve national cohesion and the possibility of having free consciousness.’

French President Emmanuel Macron wants to reorganize Islam in France to better integrate worship, fight fundamentalism and preserve “national cohesion.”

“We are working on the structuring [he used the word structuration] of Islam in France and also on how to explain it, which is extremely important,” Macron told the Journal du Dimanche in an interview Sunday.

“My goal is to rediscover what lies at the heart of laïcité [the French concept of secularism], the possibility of being able to believe as not to believe, in order to preserve national cohesion and the possibility of having free consciousness,”the French leader said declining to reveal further details about the reform plan. “I will not reveal the proposal until the work is completed,” he said.
