“Praise is to Allah, the Almighty and the end is for the pious, and there is no transgression except upon the oppressors, and peace and blessings of Allah upon the Prophet, his family, companions and those who follow their steps until the Day of Judgement, to proceed.”

“Allah the almighty says, “Say: "O ye People of the Book! Why obstruct ye those who believe, from the path of Allah, Seeking to make it crooked, while ye were yourselves witnesses (to Allah's Covenant)? but Allah is not unmindful of all that ye do. O ye who believe! If ye listen to a faction among the People of the Book, they would (indeed) render you apostates after ye have believed!” (Surah Al Imran, Verse 99-100)

“A few years back, France waged a fierce war, on our daughters who wore Hijab, and now today
again it is gathering its forces and collecting all its organisation and arranging its ranks to fight a new blatant war on our sisters wearing Niqab.”

“The French are committing all these oppressions at a time when we find their women pouring into our countries and filling up its beaches and roads while they are dressed, in naked clothes, in an open challenge to the emotions of Muslims and an open mocking of the teachings of our Islamic religion, and their customs and traditions.”

“And this by Allah is the height of extremism and racism and the most apparent form of religious terrorism and incitation to hate.”

“For yesterday, it was Hijab and today it is Niqab and then tomorrow perhaps their sinful hands
will reach forward to the obligation of prayer, fasting and Hajj.”

“And we are quite sure that this enmity that is apparent in the hearts of the French politicians against Islam and its people will continue, instead, it will spread and will change forms, and that’s why we call on all the Muslims to combat this enmity with a greater enmity and to meet the care of France to oppress our believing sisters on their religion, with greater care of holding on to the religious teachings of Islam, both small and big, obligatory and recommended.”

“As for us-the Mujahideen in the land of Islamic Maghreb then we have taken an oath to Allah, not to keep quiet on these provocative oppressions, and we will avenge for the honours of our sisters, and daughters, on France and its interests in every way we can, in every place we can and at every time we can, until France stops its oppression and stupidity and stops its oppression and its insolence.”
