After a great debate … a French municipality rejects the transfer...

Its owner decided to donate it to the ribat after he was unable to provide the money necessary to complete its construction

The Municipal Council of Angers in western France refused the transfer of ownership of a mosque under construction in the city to Morocco, whose owner decided to donate it to the Kingdom in order to complete the construction process after he was unable to do so due to the lack of money he had, as identical sources reported Monday.

And the Great Mosque of Anjeh, which is supposed to have a capacity of about 2,500 worshipers upon completion, has been under construction since 2014 in a neighborhood in the north of the city.

The land on which the mosque was built was bought in 2011 by the Angers Muslim Association from a mixed public company headed by Christophe Bichou, mayor of Angers.

In September, the Association of Muslims of Angers, dominated by Moroccans, decided to hand over the land free of charge to the Moroccan Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs.

In a decision issued, on Monday, and seen by “Agence France Presse”; The Municipal Council of Angers refused to transfer ownership of the mosque; Because the land sale contract prevents the buyer from reselling it before construction is completed; Unless he obtains express permission to do so from the developer.

The municipal council said in its decision: “The assignment of ownership of the future mosque to a foreign country is inconsistent with the impartiality sought in achieving the desired goal of building and operating this facility.”

However, the Municipal Council was keen in its decision to affirm “its adherence to the freedom to practice religious rites, and its respect for the desire of the Muslim community to have a decent place of worship that allows the believers to practice their religious rites.”

And according to a source close to the city council: The Angi Muslims Association decided to cede the land. Because it was unable to provide the necessary funding to complete the construction of the mosque.

The source told “AFP”: The Association of Muslims of Angers “collected 2.5 million euros, and 4.5 million euros are still missing.” Pointing out that the city’s Muslims “are themselves divided over the decision to give up the mosque to Morocco.”
