France: Presidenrt Sarkozy fires diversity head Abderrahmane Dahmane

“French President Nicolas Sarkozy has sacked his diversity adviser after he called on Muslims not to support the governing UMP party, reports say.

Abderrahmane Dahmane, a Muslim and former UMP official appointed to his post only in January, was protesting against a planned debate on Islam.

He said Muslim members of the UMP should not renew their party membership unless the debate was cancelled.

He condemned UMP leader Jean-Francois Cope as a “plague for Muslims”.
