Gérald Darmanin has banned the coming to France of a Yemeni Salafist preacher who was to participate for three days in conferences at the great mosque of Chilly-Mazarin (Essonne), we learned Wednesday evening from the Ministry of the Interior. .
The Yemeni Salafist Sheikh Al-Mohammedi was to take part in conferences at the Chilly-Mazarin mosque on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, as part of a European tour which took him to Rotterdam, Cologne and Molenbeeck where he is giving on Wednesday evening a conference, the ministry said.
The Minister of the Interior issued an administrative ban on territory (IAT) to prevent his arrival.
To explain this decision, the ministry emphasized the "comments attributed to this Salafist preacher, or at least the hadiths (collection of the acts and words of Muhammad and his companions, editor's note) that he uses in support of his actions”.
Thus, according to the Interior, Jews and Christians are "qualified as corrupters (hadith which he uses)" by the preacher.
“The source of all evil comes from women”
About women, this preacher "quotes hadiths stating that a man must close his eyes when he meets a woman, and that the source of all evil comes from women".
The preacher also quotes hadiths recommending "corporal punishment for those who do not respect the religious precepts for thieves".
According to the Interior, he also calls on “Muslims to leave non-Muslim countries in order to be able to respect the precepts of their religion” and “not to share anything with non-Muslims”.

Beauvau argued that these remarks "made in 2020" were "clearly akin to encouraging separatism and community withdrawal".
The ministry specified that the town hall of Chilly-Mazarin “should ban the conference in the coming hours”.
