TEHRAN (Iran News) – Turkey accused French President Emmanuel Macron of “encouraging Islamophobia” with his recent remarks claiming that “Islam is in crisis”.
“The claim by President Macron that ‘Islam is in crisis’ is a dangerous and provocative statement, encouraging Islamophobia and anti-Muslim demagoguery,” presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin wrote on Twitter on Monday.
“Making Islam and Muslims a scapegoat for the failures of the French Republic is a far cry from rational policy,” he added.
Last Friday, Macron announced a controversial plan against so-called “Islamist separatism” in the country.
In a speech, Macron claimed that Islam is a religion that is “experiencing a crisis across the world”.
