French govt bans Muslim Publishing house for promoting Islamic content

France’s politicians continue their targeted campaign against Muslim organizations as elections approach. Right-wing French interior minister Gerald Darmanin announced on Twitter that he would take legal action against a Muslim publishing house for promoting Islamic content. The publisher sold books about influential Muslim figures who fought to preserve their religion. He claims the Nawa Editions publishing house publishes works that are “anti-universalist and hostile to Western values.”

Furthermore, he pointed out that several works legitimizing jihad were distributed by the group. This includes a biography of the Muslim military commander Khalid ibn al-Walid dating to the seventh century. The organization condemned the “purely political” decision made by the government. The actions by France against a Muslim organization appear to be part of a pattern that has seen a state shut down charities representing Muslims.
