French mayor questioned by police over claims files were kept on Muslim school children

A French mayor has been questioned by police after he claimed his administration used the names of school children in his town to determine how many were Muslim.

Robert Ménard, mayor of Béziers in the south of France, was accused of racism after he alleged that Muslim pupils amounted to 64.6 per cent of the total, and that his administration had arrived at that figure by counting the names of children “class by class”.

Appearing on TV show Mots Croisés on 4 May, Ménard astonished viewers as he said the alleged figures reflected an “immigration problem” and that many parents of the children had “less than perfect” French.

Is it any wonder France has such a Muslim problem when by law they aren’t able to name it.
