Leaders of the Muslim umbrella body, the CFCM met with Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault Thursday to discuss what they called a rise in Islamophobia, Radio France Internationale reported.
The group said anti-Muslim acts rose 34 percent in 2011.
CFCM called on Hollande to condemn Islamophobia in a "solemn declaration," similar to when he spoke out against anti-Semitism.
