The police department said in a statement that no one was hurt in the Thursday incident in Creteil south of Paris.
The reason for the driver's actions is unclear.
The incident happened as French religious sites and other public places remain under high security after a string of Islamic extremist attacks.
As we have seen such hate crimes, which are nothing but terrorizing Muslim community, are whitewashed to appear as petty crimes of less importance. I am sure if the same crime were committed by a Muslim against a Church, it would become the news headline and dubbed as nothing but terrorist activity.
