Paris: For the first time in France, a group of 20 Muslims men and women came together to start a collective against the proposed same-sex legislation. The group named ‘Les musulmans pour l’enfance’ (Muslim for childhood) aims to “sensitize French citizens of Muslim faith of the consequences of the law”. The group remains unaffiliated with larger French religious authority and puts emphasis on being a citizen initiative. Members criticise that the proposed law on same-sex marriage did not take children into account, whose opinion remains outside of the debate. “Les musulmans pour l’enfance” claims to protect the traditional institution of marriage and has already called for rallies in Paris and other French cities. According to them, French Muslims who oppose same sex marriage do so in line with convictions and not as a move against the French government or its President.
