The situation in Rennes, where a gymnasium has been repurposed as a temporary mosque, has sparked controversy across France. This move by the socialist town hall of Rennes serves as a temporary solution while awaiting the construction of a mega-mosque on municipal land. The decision reflects a broader debate about special religious accommodations given to Muslims by left-wing politicians.
The Mosque of Blosne, formerly the primary place of worship, had become too small to accommodate the massive influx of Islamic migrants. Muslims decided to apply pressure on the community to accommodate them, so they illegally took to the streets to assert their power and held “prayers” in public spaces, including roads and lawns. Instead of punishing the Muslims for illegally occupying public property, the state rewarded them with temporary use of the gymnasium while a more permanent solution was developed.
Critics of the decision argue that it signifies another step towards the complete Islamization of France, facilitated by left-wing politicians who advocate for open borders and increased accommodation of Islamic practices. They view the transformation of a public gymnasium into a place of worship as an inappropriate use of public resources for “religious” purposes, raising concerns about secularism and the principle of laïcité in French society.
While the Muslims continue to occupy public areas and buildings, they have proposed a mega-mosque to address their needs. This mosque will be located on the edges of the Parc des Gayeulles on land provided by the city. It is projected to be a 3,000-square-meter building capable of accommodating several hundred worshippers.
Spearheaded by the controversial Islamic association “Espoir Amal,” the project aims to create a Sharia-adherent space that can serve Muslims, including providing ample space for women and young girls who often face difficulties finding accommodation in existing mosques. The funding and planning process for the new mosque are still underway, with a crowd-funding campaign having raised a portion of the budget
