The French Parliament has recently passed a 'Bill to strengthen democratic values'. Its purpose is to keep ordinary Muslims away from radical Islam. It has provisions such as prohibiting mosques from taking external funds, prohibiting Muslim children from being sent to underground Islamic training sites, prohibiting doctors from giving Muslim girls 'proof of being virgin'. Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has called it an 'attack on Islam'. 

Effigies of French President Emmanuel Macron were burnt there. Meanwhile, the important question is whether the state or government should remain neutral between the jihadis and other parties? If the state is nullified, the Islamists will force the entire country to follow the Sharia, thumbing the Constitution. It has also started appearing in many places in Europe.

Not only Muslim countries, even in democratic countries, Muslim-dominated areas are prevented from celebrating festivals of other religions. Everywhere there is a stubborn politics of imposing Sharia, but according to Macron, 'In the debate on Islam, we often do but. This is what happens after every terrorist attack. A misunderstanding of the French concept 'laccete', ie secular policy, is also an example. 

Under this, there is the right to criticize and ridicule any religion there. This conception was born in resistance to the Church's hegemony in France. After that, logic, science and freedom developed there. The French magazine Sharley Abdo also published numerous cartoons of Jesus Christ decades before Muhammad's cartoons were printed.
