Accused of having made statements qualified as “Islamophobic”, a law professor at the University of Aix-Marseille has suffered a torrent of insults and death threats.
The University of Aix-Marseille has seen heightened tension regarding the question of religion. French weekly Le Point reported that a law professor has been the target of a torrent of insults and death threats on social networks.
As part of her course on conflictual laws, she explained that adherence to Islam and Judaism were “sexually transmitted” and added that “one of the biggest problems we have with Islam, and unfortunately it is not the only one, is that Islam does not recognize freedom of conscience. It’s still absolutely terrifying”.
In a short excerpt broadcast by Mediapart of her course recorded on Zoom on October 27, this law professor notably pointed out: “If you are born to a Muslim father, you are a Muslim for life. Some kind of sexually transmitted religion, I’ve never understood. It looks like Judaism, it’s the same, it’s through the mother.”
She has been placed under police surveillance for her own protection, while a complaint from the Ligue des droits de l’homme [League of Human Rights (LDH)] has been filed against her.
According Le Point, the Marseille prosecutor’s office has opened a preliminary investigation for public insults against religious groups. “To attack religions is not punishable, and it is allowed, but here, given the brutality of the remarks, one passes to another level”, declared the honorary president of the LDH, Michel Tubiana.
“This no longer just criticism, but an insult. This kind of diatribe that we find on CNews is not a caricature, it has nothing to do with Charlie Hebdo, it is an insulting value judgment intended to hurt,” Tubiana added. As a high school student, Tubiana belonged to the Revolutionary Communist Youth and called himself a “Trotskyist”. He is in favor of the right to vote for non-European foreigners and opposes the expulsion of illegal foreigners
The professor was interviewed on Tuesday, December 15 by the police of Aix-en-Provence in the presence of her lawyer. “I must not be clear on the meaning of human rights,” commented the latter.
