FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Boycotting France: Is this the best strategy for angry Muslim countries?” – below is their description.
A growing list of Muslim countries, including Qatar, Jordan and Turkey, are joining the #BoycottFrance movement after French President Emmanuel Macron promised to defend blasphemy at the national tribute for Samuel Paty last Wednesday and later reaffirmed that France “will not give in, ever.” Is there a better way for angry Muslim countries to engage with France, its distinct notion of #laïcité and help the French Muslims? Yes, according to Asif Arif, French attorney and author of “Being muslim in France”. Arif believes that Muslim countries need to sit down and have a dialogue with the French leader, not only to understand the French culture but also to provide help to the French government to better serve its #Muslim population.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
