The French government has been accused of following Islamic law, specifically one which designates guardianship of children, to determine housing benefits for Muslims.
The French housing benefit, known as CAF, is calculated on a number of factors, including the income of a household and how many children live in a household.
On the official website of the CAF, the government mentions a form of Islamic jurisprudence known as “Kafala” as being valid alongside other documents to prove guardianship of children, leading some to question if the government is following Islamic law.
Anti-Islamisation Front National MP Gilbert Collard questioned the French state giving legal legitimacy to what he called a “Quranic judgement”.
