Islamic veil fines? He’ll pay them!

17 Feb

Rachid Nekkaz

So far he paid 31 burka and niqab fines.  Rachid Nekkaz, a wealthy French businessmen, set up a million euro fund in 2010 to pay fines for women who choose to wear the full Islamic veil in countries banning it. Currently he supports Kenza Drider, a niqab veiled candidate for the 2012 presidential elections and he is trying to purchase the mayors’ signatures ( in France one needs 500 mayors’ signatures in ordrer to become an official presidential candidate).

1. Why have you decided to support Kenza Drider in her bid for president?

2. What is your opinion on secularism?

3. In January of 2012 you called the French mayors to sell their signatures to you for 646,25 € each, the equivalent of one month mayor’s allowances (in the community with less than 500 residents). How did you come up with that idea?
