Over the last few years, CAGE has been documenting and highlighting the abuses of Muslim minorities in France. We exposed the government's ‘systematic obstruction policy’ 

  • Over 28,000 Muslim owned groups and associations placed under investigation 

  • 906 closures of Muslim organisations and businesses

  • 50 Million euros seized from the Muslim community. 

Last year, our Managing Director Muhammad Rabbani, spoke at the OSCE Human Rights Conference detailing the harms of this policy and exposed the French government’s state sponsored Islamophobia. 

Just weeks after his speech, the French government issued a ban stopping Rabbani from entering France. He became aware of the ban in July 2023, when he travelled to France to meet with French media organisations and civil society leaders. His visit followed the unlawful killing of Nahel, a young Muslim shot by French police on the day of Arafat. 

Rabbani has been denied entry into Poland at the behest of the French authorities as he was set to speak again at the OSCE, exposing France’s systematic persecution of Muslims at the international conference. 

Muhammad Rabbani said: 

“The French government is clearly threatened by an NGO holding them to account. Our interventions and critiques are echoed across the board. Singling out a Muslim human rights defender for a ban smacks of the very same Islamophobia of which they are so offended about being accused.”

It is clear that France does not want the international community to be aware of its Islamophobic policies and laws. CAGE will continue to speak truth to power and expose their abuses. 

We are taking on the legal fight to overturn these travel bans which aim to stop us defending Muslims in need.  We are raising £5000 in order to initiate proceedings against the French government.
