Several demonstrations have charged President Macron for his comments on Islam.

French President Emmanuel Macron has called on Muslim leaders to accept a “republican chart of values” as part of a broad offensive against radical Islam.

On Wednesday he gave the French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM) a 15 day ultimatum to accept the letter.

The CFCM has agreed to create a National Council of Imams, which will be in charge of broadcast to the imamis an accreditation official. This recognition could be withdrawn under certain circumstances.

The measure comes after three alleged Islamist attacks in just over a month.
