A mosque in the French town of Reims was hit by an arson attack as part of anti-Islamic activities in France just before days Holy Ramadan begins.

Iran PressEurope: French media reported on Sunday that just two days before the start of the holy month of Ramadan in this country, a person or persons have started painting Islamophobia themes on the wall of a mosque in the city of Rennes.

Interior Minister Gerard Darmanin said it was a disgusting attack against the fundamental freedom to believe in a religion and that Muslims deserved the same protection as any other religious group in France.

"Attacks against Muslims are attacks against the Republic," Darmanin said after he visited the site.

Among the slogans scrawled on the building were "Catholicism - religion of the state" and "No to Islamification".

The French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM), one of the main groups representing Muslims in France, called the incident an "unbearable aggression".

"As Ramadan approaches and in the face of a surge in anti-Muslim acts, the CFCM calls on Muslims in France to be vigilant," the association said on Twitter.

The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, recently in a statement far from the norm of diplomacy and the principles of democracy, said that France will continue to publish insulting cartoons against the Holy Prophet of Islam (PBUH). 219
