Eiffel Tower: The most recognized landmark of France. The Muslim Times is promoting secularism in every country of the world and refuting Islamophobia

PARIS (Reuters) – Thousands marched through Paris on Sunday in an anti-Islamophobia demonstration that has divided France’s political class.

Organizers said they had called the rally in a sign of support two weeks after a man with far-right connections fired shots in a mosque in the southwestern city of Bayonne, injuring two elderly men.

Members of hard-left parties took part in the march – though some others in the center stayed away saying it threatened France’s tradition of secularism, and far right leader Marine Le Pen said the event had been organized by Islamists.

Crowds walked through the capital waving banners marked with the messages “Stop all racism” and “Islamophobia is not an opinion but a crime” at the event organized by the Collectif Contre l’Islamophobie en France.
