The hate speech laws in France are matters of both civil law and criminal law.

In 2002, a court in Paris considered a complaint by several civil-rights organizations (among which the Human Rights League (France)) about a remark by Michel Houellebecq, the author of the novel Plateforme. During an interview, Houellebecq remarked that Islam is "the stupidest religion." The court decided the remark could neither be considered a racial insult to Muslims nor an incitement to religious or racial hatred.
