And that churches are being closed due to "lake of attention." I don't know if these numbers are accurate or not, but the assertion itself is significant. With the increased presence of Muslims in France, or even with the widespread perception that their numbers are increasing, will come calls for the implementation of more and more aspects of Sharia. "Number of mosque is greater than churches in France," from the Ahlul Bayt News Agency, October 17 (thanks to all who sent this in):
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - In charge of Muslim council Syed Muhammad Mosavi said that 2000 mosques are constructed in last one decade and 150 mosques are under construction in this country and 4000 mosques are needed to be constructed in next decade.
Daily Lakawaix reported that only 10 churches were constructed in last 10 years and 40 churches are closed due to lake [sic] of attention and many churches are being purchased by the Muslims and they are constructing mosques over there.
An American office wrote in their web site that Islam is spreading very fast in France door of mosques are always open for the Muslims. Now number of mosque is greater than churches in France. And 25 million people are totally religious and 19 million Catholics are acting on their religion.
