Union chief says Air France has a 'fundamentalist' problem

Latest update : 2015-12-17
Is Air France becoming a hotbed of religious fundamentalism, as the head of one of the company's unions suggested in recent comments? Some employees have also reported a rise in sectarian attitudes at the airline.

Air France employee Sophie* clearly remembers the 2011 halal "scandal" at the French capital's Charles de Gaulle airport.

“The General Workers Union (CGT) wanted to introduce halal meat in the staff cafeteria. There were petitions, then security was increased… It went very badly,” said Sophie, who has worked at France’s largest airport for 10 years.

The controversy prompted several unions to step in, citing what they saw as rising sectarianism at the company. There have been several accounts in the press about employees who refused, for example, to shake hands with or speak to women, or who became angry with Muslims who chose not to observe Ramadan.

The CGT is once again mobilising against what its chief has called “Islamic fundamentalists”. In an interview on December 2, Philippe Martinez, the secretary general of Air France’s CGT union, revealed that the corporation had “cleaned out” its ranks: the organisation identified nearly 500 of its 2,000 members as “fundamentalists” and then excluded them from the union.

"We lost 500 union members due to this matter," Martinez told France Info. “They are not all radical. When we talk about matters of this kind, we’re talking about Islamic fundamentalists, not the religion, per se.”

But negotiations have become more difficult even between the union itself and some of its members. A “handful of individuals” have seriously campaigned for their personal interests at the CGT, said Sophie.

“It’s a small group but a strong one nonetheless, one that sets its own rules,” she said. She added that, paradoxically, “questionable” behaviour is both increasingly present and “less and less visible”.

“The problem is that, for years, we have begun to accept, or normalise, such behaviour here.”

‘Worrisome behaviour’

Augustin de Romanet, the CEO of the Paris Airports association (Aéroports de Paris, which manages Orly and Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airports), agrees that certain individuals have exhibited what he called “worrisome behaviour”.

Not respecting the company's code on religious neutrality in the workplace could adversely affect the corporate environment or even employee relations, and this is what worries the bosses.

When contacted by FRANCE 24, Air France’s management declined to comment on the issue, instead citing an official press release that outlines its ethics policy. The company adheres to “a management structure in which personal opinions align with uncompromised professional objectives”, the statement said.

But Sophie believes the company leadership is waffling, even stonewalling.

“Clearly there’s a downward spiral taking place and everyone knows it,” she said. “In general, things go very well here. Air France is a diverse, multicultural company. But of course there will always be a handful of individuals who pose a problem, a minority who make life difficult for other employees, including Muslims.”

Air France is not the only company to see religion creeping into the workplace. According to a study conducted last April by the Observatory of Religion in the Workplace and the Randstad Institute, 23% of managers in France say they regularly confront religious issues at work, compared with around half that – 12% – in 2014.

Another 6% said that religion had led to conflict in the workplace, up from 3% last year, Le Figaro reported.


'No religious radicalisation at Air France'

Ronald Noirot, secretary general of the CFE CGC, Air France’s new main trade union, acknowledges that there have been issues arising from religion at the company but cautions against exaggerating the problem.

“In four years, out of 60,000 employees at the company, we have had fewer than 10 problem cases,” he explained to FRANCE 24. “Again, these are marginal cases. I can’t say there is a problem with fundamentalism at the company. In truth, we are facing a problem of sectarianism – and that’s different.”

The union denounced its leader's comments earlier this month. In a press release, the CGT said: “Based on imprecise evidence and under the pressure of questions from journalists, [Martinez] used two words – ‘radical’ and ‘Islamic fundamentalists’ – that do not correspond with the reality of our union.”

Mehdi Kemoune, assistant secretary general of the union, put it to FRANCE 24 even more directly: “There is no form of religious radicalisation at Air France.”

So why were 500 members dismissed from the union if not for being "fundamentalists", as Martinez had said? The CGT said it was for corruption.

According to a recent press release, certain “union bosses of the CGT division at Roissy Escales (Charles de Gaulle airport)” have admitted that they were guilty of “favouritism”.

So did Martinez exaggerate the "fundamentalist" problem at Air France?

“He didn't make anything up,” said Sophie. “The problem is, the rest of us in the company do not say such things. The management and the unions always think first about the company image. Since we work with planes, the subject is sensitive.”

Romanet acknowledged on December 13 that the Paris Airports association had deactivated 70 of their 86,000 employee access cards since January, mainly for reasons linked to religious radicalisation.

These cards, referred to as “red cards”, give employees entry into secure, “reserved” areas such as the tarmac, the baggage zone, Duty-Free shops and certain public spaces, among others.

“Essentially, we have deactivated access cards after incidents involving flights and aggression. There simply aren’t enough cases to declare that there is a debate [in our industry] concerning religious radicalisation,” said the Paris Airports press office. “After all, we are talking about only 70 out of 86,000 access cards.”

The association added that it should not serve as the justification for either paranoia or discriminatory practices.

And examples of discrimination do exist within the airport industry. Two security agents at Orly airport south of Paris were expelled by the Securitas company on December 16, allegedly because they had beards.

“Certain companies are beginning to demonstrate problematic behavior,” the men’s lawyer told AFP, adding that he was less worried about radicalisation within companies than the radicalisation "of" companies.

Well, we have to catch up modern times, without compromising on the core of our beliefs. I find it very hard to accept that we have to address a 1000 year old diktat of sorts. ????? Everyone has had to compromise.

However, no matter what this needs to be addressed even in the face of fatwas and other threats.

Xinjiang Seethes Under Chinese Crackdown
点击查看本文中文版 Read in Chinese
By ANDREW JACOBSJAN. 2, 2016

KASHGAR, China — Families sundered by a wave of detentions. Mosques barred from broadcasting the call to prayer. Restrictions on the movements of laborers that have wreaked havoc on local agriculture. And a battery of ever more intrusive ways to monitor the communications of citizens for possible threats to public security.

A recent 10-day journey across the Xinjiang region in the far west of China revealed a society seething with anger and trepidation as the government, alarmed by a slow-boil insurgency that has claimed hundreds of lives, has introduced unprecedented measures aimed at shaping the behavior and beliefs of China’s 10 million Uighurs, a Turkic-speaking Muslim minority that considers this region its homeland.

Driving these policies is the government’s view that tougher security and tighter restraints on the practice of Islam are the best way to stem a wave of violence that included a knife attack at a coal mine that killed dozens of people in September.

As heavily armed soldiers rummage through car trunks and examine ID cards, ethnic Uighur motorists and their passengers are sometimes asked to hand over their cellphones so that the police can search them for content or software deemed a threat to public security.

In addition to jihadist videos, the police are on the lookout for Skype and WhatsApp, apps popular with those who communicate with friends and relatives outside China, and for software that allows users to access blocked websites.

“All of us have become terror suspects,” said a 23-year-old Uighur engineering student who said he was detained overnight in November after the police found messages he had exchanged with a friend in Turkey. “These days, even receiving phone calls from overseas is enough to warrant a visit from state security.”

Here in Kashgar, the fabled Silk Road outpost near China’s border with Pakistan and Afghanistan, officials have banned mosques from broadcasting the call to prayer, forcing muezzins to shout out the invocation five times a day from rooftops across the city. The new rule is an addition to longstanding policies that prohibit after-school religious classes and children under 18 from entering mosques. (The installation of video cameras on mosque doorways in recent months makes such rules hard to ignore.)

Southeast of Kashgar, shopkeepers in the city of Hotan seethed over a government decision to outlaw two dozen names considered too Muslim, forcing parents to rename their children or be unable to register them for school, according to local residents and the police.


To the north in Turpan, a fertile oasis famed for its grapes, a vineyard owner complained about new restrictions that bar Uighur migrant laborers from traveling there for the harvest, leaving tons of fruit to wither on the vines.

And farther north in Ghulja, an ethnically diverse city near the Kazakh border with a history of tensions, a pair of unemployed college graduates fumed about a crackdown prohibiting young men from wearing beards and women from veiling their faces. Those who ignore the rules are sometimes jailed, residents said.

“Me, myself, I’m not religious, but forcing our women to take off their head scarves is an affront to their dignity and makes many people angry,” said one of the men, who, like others interviewed, asked to remain anonymous for fear of punishment by the authorities.

Other measures contribute to the widespread perception that Uighur identity is under siege. Schools have largely switched to Mandarin as the main language of instruction instead of Uighur, and the government has begun offering cash and housing subsidies to encourage intermarriage between Uighurs and Hans, the country’s ethnic majority, who have migrated to the region in large numbers.

Surveillance, too, has been increased. Since 2014, Uighurs seeking to travel outside their hometowns have been required to carry a special card that lists phone numbers for the holder’s landlord and local police station. Many Uighurs complain that these “convenience contact cards,” as they are called, single them out for scrutiny.

“The state’s ability to penetrate Uighur society has become increasingly sophisticated and intrusive,” said James Leibold, an expert on China’s ethnic politics at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. “But while these new measures allow the party to nip a lot of problems in the bud, they also foster new forms of alienation and violence that ultimately weaken the party’s legitimacy and rule.”

After 43 people were killed in a pair of attacks in the regional capital, Urumqi, in 2014, Beijing began a “strike hard special operation” that it says has dismantled nearly 200 terrorist groups and resulted in the execution of at least 49 people. The state news media describes those caught in the crackdown as terrorism suspects or separatists seeking an independent Xinjiang, and blames recurring violence in the region on jihadists influenced or directed by agents overseas.

Foreign journalists seeking to examine such claims face a gantlet of challenges. Officials in Xinjiang seldom respond to interview requests. Those ubiquitous checkpoints prevent journalists from reaching towns and cities recently hit by unrest, and in other places, the sudden appearance of government minders makes it hard to speak with residents. Last week, Beijing expelled a French reporter for an article that criticized its harsh policies in the region.

Fear and resentment are widespread, though such sentiments often emerged haltingly and only in private.

Nervously rearranging the painted tambourines and traditional carved knives in her family’s tiny gift shop, a young woman in Urumqi wept as she described families torn apart by the recent detentions.

“In some homes, only the babies are left because the father and mother have been taken away,” she said, adding that many were serving three- or four-year sentences for violating religious regulations that provide no avenue for appeal. “We think it’s O.K. to live in China, but we wish they would treat us like they did before,” she said.

In Yarkand, a city in southern Xinjiang where violence claimed nearly 100 lives in 2014, an unwanted escort from the local propaganda bureau, Murat, vigorously defended the new restraints on religious life, saying they were needed to combat the sort of extremism that is convulsing parts of the Muslim world.

“When I was a kid, my mother used to wear sleeveless shirts, but now, because of the rise of conservative Islam, she no longer does,” said Murat, who did not want his last name to be used. “Without the government’s strong hand, we would become more like Iran, where they stone girls to death.”

It remains a matter of dispute whether radical Islam has taken hold among many Uighurs, the majority of whom subscribe to a moderate form of Sunni Islam. But the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and the Islamic State’s killing in November of a Chinese hostage in Syria have prompted Beijing to step up efforts to position its battle to pacify Xinjiang as part of the global war on violent religious extremism.

Experts outside China, however, say much of the bloodshed here is fueled by local grievances, among them job discrimination against Uighurs, endemic poverty and a widespread belief that the flood of Han migrants to the region is part of a government plan to dilute Uighur identity.

“What we’re seeing in Xinjiang is homegrown self-radicalization that is made worse by repressive policies and an attempt to hollow out Uighur culture and religious practices,” said Nicholas Bequelin, East Asia director for Amnesty International.

Most Uighurs, especially the educated and the middle class, have little interest in pushing back against Beijing, and not just because they are afraid. Abdul, 30, a home furnishing salesman who frequently travels across China for work, said he did not support an independent Xinjiang, citing the social instability and economic stagnation he has seen across Central Asia and the Middle East.

“Here in China, we are 56 minorities living together in peace,” he said, echoing the propaganda that blankets billboards across the region. But later, over a meal of lamb and fragrant rice, he angrily described how the police, alerted by front-desk hotel clerks, almost always visited his room when he was on business trips.

“I am Chinese; this is what it says on my ID card,” he said, his voice rising with emotion. But that same card also lists his ethnic identity, and his facial features — light eyes and an aquiline nose — set him apart in a nation that is 92 percent Han. “Sometimes I feel confused about what I really am,” he said.

Then he paused, glanced behind his shoulder, and leaned forward. “To be honest,” he said, “these days, the government’s policies make me so sick in the heart that I sometimes wish I wasn’t Chinese.”

For all the fundas we might give about how Indian system is better etc, a look at Bengal, UP, Assam etc should give a inkling of how any amount of molly-coddling and GUBO will not work with a certain peaceful sections.
The same can be said of J&K where if we had followed the Chinese principle, we wouldnt be the situation we are in now in the valley.

So, guess the Chinese method even if not sweet is the right method to handle certain sets of people.

democratic institutions and elections have been subverted by population growth in border areas of india....and other than BJP, everyone else is helping this strongly in favour of vote banks and just because of street power. commies in WB and INC in Assam made a career out of bangladeshi vote bank...TMC has followed in their footsteps ad stepped it up one notch. SP is another one riding on muslim vote banks.

The modus operandi to become a secular "leader"/party is simple - establish pro-peaceful bonfides by killing Hindus or facilitating immigrants. Once vote-bank is sewed up, you are free to loot till kingdom comes or the horde finds a greener alternative.

X Posted from the STFUP thread.

When Mohammadden religion driven practises cloister away women in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, it is inevitable that deviant paedophilic homosexual rape crops up. In this case, reading between the lines, it appears prominent Mohammadden Adult Male locals picked on a Christist boy child:

Seven-year-old boy in Pakistan 'gang raped and murdered' in Bahawalnagar

More from the Express Tribune which identifies the Adult Male suspects as having the distinctly Mohammadden names of Ayaz, Mujeebur Rehman and Asad:

7-year-old boy dies after being gang raped by 'influentials' in Bahawalnagar

This deviant behaviour is no one off event in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Similar incidents of paedophilic homosexual rape have been reported over the past couple of years or so. Indeed I suspect that the incidents of this nature, by standards of prevalence of deviant behaviour, are quite widespread in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

Lahore: 6-year-old boy killed after rape

Sexual assault: Boy allegedly raped by three men

Crime against children: Five-year-old boy raped

Girl, boy gang raped in Hafizabad

Gruesome crime: Kindergarten boy ‘gang-raped’ by principal, others

Perhaps the feminists had relatives among the dozens of German girls raped recently.
What a sad state of affairs in Europe. Yet in India it is taboo to blow the whistle on this creeping evil.

India has faced much worse and continues to face worse. It is steadily subject to maltreatment of women and loss of territory. Examples are: Deganga and recent Malda rampage where continually "no go areas" are created on almost daily basis. But most SDREs are desensitized (after all being SDRE itself is single enough reason for them to die/maltreated) and accept that as normal, but when something happens in Europe, SDREs develop extra-sensitive skin and become very concerned. SDREs routinely light up buildings the flag color of France whenever something happens in Europe, and say "je Seus paris", but one doesn't see "Je seus pathankot jawans" or tricolour displayed on buildings.

As a matter of fact, this kind of behavior, has been actively abetted by Europeans/westerners when they happen elsewhere starting with Banglesh Desh territory, continuing with napakis on the western front.

Times of Israel reports that study by Israel’s Tel Aviv University’s Institute for National Security Studies shows almost all the suicide attacks in 2014 were accounted for by Mohammaddens; by almost all it is meant 450 of the 452 recorded suicide attacks.

Of those 450 suicide attacks accounted for by Mohammaddens, the Mohammadden Terrorist fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan recorded 36 demonstrations of the IED Mubarak variant of the IEDology of Pakistan in 2015.

450 of 452 suicide attacks in 2015 were by Muslim extremists, study shows

The Tel Aviv University study itself is available at the below weblink:
