The BNVCA has received a large number of protests of correspondents shocked to learn and read that the Rector of the Great Mosque of Paris Mr Dalil Boubakeur defends and supports Imam Tatai author of a preaching anti Jewish and anti republican pronounced in the Mosque of Toulouse in December 2017 and broadcast on social networks via.
We consider it it is the BNVCA's duty to denounce the support provided by Mr Dalil BOUBAKEUR as the press reports
"Received Monday, July 2 at the Great Mosque Imam TATAI (New Imam of the Grand Mosque of Toulouse, would have apologized for" about decontextualized It was immediately confirmed by Mr. BOBAKEUR who publishes a communiqué on behalf of the Great Mosque of Paris ": (See below press release of Mr Boubakeur)
Mr. Boubakeur's allegations contained in his press release that the Imam of Toulouse did not speak for a moment "The suffering of the Jewish people. "is false "On the contrary, he praises the incessant war of the" Muslim "who must seek" the Jew »« behind each tree to kill him ".
The prosecutor's office of Toulouse opens information for incitement to hatred. The BNVCA filed a complaint for these facts.
Mr. Boubakeur's support for Tatai's remarks, calling for hatred of the discord between the citizens, was analyzed according to the provisions of article 222-17 of the Penal Code.
As a result BNVCA has decided to instruct Maitre Baccouche to lodge a complaint under this article 222-17 against Mr BOUBAKEUR, who in our opinion is in no way the representative of Islam in France, but only President of the National Federation of the Great Mosque of Paris, That he has no power whatsoever over the officiants, Imams and Muslim communities of France,
That on the other hand he has a real moral influence on very many Muslims,
especially as Tatai who argues that even " Christians believe in this prediction.
The BNVCA expects representatives of Islam in France publicly dissociate from the Imam of Toulouse Tatai, and condemn his anti-Semitic and anti-republican sermons .
"Mr Boubakeur's press release"
Paris, Monday, July 2, 2018
The Rector of the Mosque of Paris received on Monday the imam Mohammed Tataï of the big mosque of Toulouse, in the presence of his council of imams, to hear his explanation following the controversy provoked by a video diffused on YouTube in which, in December 2017, it evokes a hadeeth in a sermon devoted to the eschatology of the last ends and to the suffering of the Jewish people.
Imam Mohammed Tatai strongly protests his good faith. He apologizes deeply to his friends in the Jewish community of Toulouse and France for the decontextualized interpretation of his remarks. He recalls that he always called in his sermons the respect of all the religious communities and in particular the Jewish community which he evokes constantly in favorable terms (Moses is quoted 134 times in the Koran) and with whom he maintains excellent reports.
Also, Imam Mohammed Tataï undertakes as in the past to insist on living together and on the necessary inter-religious understanding. And because of its exemplary commitment to Toulouse and the region in favor of living together, the Mosque of Paris wants the Imam Tataï to continue its mission in peace, dialogue and serenity.
The Mosque of Paris takes this opportunity to invite all the imams of France to observe a strict impartiality in their remarks (Dars, Khotba, etc.) especially with regard to Religions of the Book in the scrupulous respect of all beliefs.
