"Today, religion is everywhere." On Friday morning, speaking on Europe 1, Nadia Remadna doesn't mince her words, and she knows perfectly what she is talking about. The president of the association Brigade of Mothers has been fighting the rise of religious extremisms since 2014. In her district of Sevran, in Seine-Saint-Denis, she tries to offer support to families whose children are radicalising. But she is powerless as she watches the scourge metastasise. Because, despite numerous warnings, her struggle is still ignored: "I've been giving warnings for years. But the problem is that when we give a notification, they tell us that Salafism isn't a crime."
But in the difficult districts, Salafism is part of daily life. Barely concealed, it has grown and put down roots without any politician showing concern about it, she says, she being in the front line to observe its advance. "Very pessimistic," she regrets above all the lack of attention shown to the hotbeds of radicalisation of which the worst can be predicted: "What makes me afraid today is the 13-14 year olds we're seeing now. They are time bombs, because we have missed them completely."Source
