‘A sacrilege for the victims and a dishonour for France’
Médine, whose full name is Médine Zaouiche, is known for provocative lyrics about Islam and secularism in France.
He released an album called ‘Jihad’ in 2005 but said the lyrics refer to an “internal identity struggle.”
Far-right later Marine Le Pen said it would be a national disgrace to allow Médine’s shows take place at the venue of the November 2015 Paris attacks.
The rapper is known in France for provocative ideas and once released an album called ‘Jihad’.
An online protest started by right-wing MPs — ‘NO to the rapper Médine’ playing Bataclan — has gathered more than 13,400 signatures.
Médine has two shows scheduled at Bataclan in October but faces demands to cancel
In March he launched a single called ‘Bataclan’ which focussed on his personal relationship with the music venue as an up-and-coming rapper.
His conscious lyrics are perceived as some liberals as confronting difficult ideas.
But lines such as ‘I put fatwas on the head of jerks’ and ‘crucify secularists’ on 2015 rap ‘Don’t Laïk’ have divided opinion.
Aurore Bergé of social-liberal party La République En Marche! said the words are ‘more or less a call to murder,’ according to Le Monde.
Republican senator Bruno Retailleau said Médine warrants the treatment comic Dieudonné got under former President François Hollande.
Dieudonné, convicted of spreading hate speech about Jews and condoning terrorism, had a number of his shows banned by Hollande.
Over the weekend, families of the victims at Bataclan sued the French state after it was revealed anti-terror officers armed with assault rifles stood outside the theatre as the carnage unfolded inside were told by superiors not to intervene.
