France deport over 40 Imams since 2012

France are clamping down on foreign Imams preaching in Mosques around the country.

Over the past three years, France has deported 40 foreign imams for “preaching hatred.” A quarter of those have taken place since the January terror attacks in Paris, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said on Monday.

The minister vowed to clamp down on mosques and preachers inciting hatred after a man beheaded his boss during an attack on a gas factory last week, according to the Radio France International.

Any “foreign preacher of hate will be deported,” said Cazeneuve, adding that several mosques were being investigated for inciting terrorism and if found to be doing so, “will be shut down.”

This shows that greater steps are being taken in Europe, especially to shut down and eradicate mosques and Imams who are peddling a harmful narrative.
