France takes action against religious bigotry, new law sparks uproar on social media

 Amid controversy over cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed, France's new move could anger Muslim nations once again. In the war against extremism, the French government is going to introduce a law in parliament that could lead to renewed controversy. French President Emmanuel Macron has already called for tougher laws to curb religious bigotry.

"Now is the time to show the terrorists who they are facing," said Macron, the French president who has been the victim of a series of major terrorist attacks. He also slammed the terrorist incident. Macron has already called for an eye on funding for mosques in France and an investigation into schools and other religious groups.

Now, Gerald, France's interior minister, says his country is waging a war against radical Islam. He said in a bill to be introduced in the French parliament that a man could face up to five years in prison and a fine of 75,000 euros if he refused to be treated by a female doctor. This can also be done with women if they refuse to seek treatment from a male doctor.

Gerald said strict action would be taken against those who pressured officials to refuse to accept teachers' lessons. The French minister's statement has caused a stir on social media. A large number of Muslims have tweeted criticizing the French minister's statement. Not only that, Muslims are also questioning the 5 year sentence and heavy fines.

Earlier in the day, French President Emmanuel Macron said on Saturday that "we respect the cartoons of the Muslim prophet Mohammed, but we respect him, but violence cannot be justified on this basis." Security has been beefed up in France following attacks in the past two weeks. Three people have been killed in Nissanchurch after a school teacher in Paris and a pastor was shot dead in Lyon on Saturday.
