Before the French conquest (1830 AD) of Algeria, there were 112 Masjids in Algiers alone. But only 5 remained intact and rest were destroyed or turned into warehouses or stables by the French. Then they prohibited pilgrimage(Hajj) completely. Apart from murdering thousands, French soldiers started stealing and robbing the homes of Algerian Muslims. Some even brought women’s earrings with the ears after cutting them up with knives.
We are telling these tragedies to explain to those who admire “French Etiquette “, that the French still refuse to apologize to Algerian Muslims for the crimes they committed against them.
