Rabat – Syrians in Morocco use mosques in many cities to raise topics that disturb the holiness of the place, according to Moroccan daily Sahifat Annas.
Syrians who fled the Levant looking for peace and stability chose Morocco as a safe destination where they could live away from the war. However, the psychological impact of the crisis seems to make them want to vent to everybody and talk about their suffering everywhere, even in mosques.
In a statement released by the Minister of Islamic Affairs, the minister said that the “Ministry of Habous and Islamic Affairs gave clear instructions to its representatives all over the country to stop Syrians whose behaviors seem to disturb the tranquility of mosques,” Sahifat Annas reported.
The same source added that “The ministry released a statement condemning acts by some Syrians, who make mosques a square to discuss issues unrelated to the sanctity of the mosque, disturbing people who choose to pray there.“
“The representatives were instructed to inform authorities if they ever detect somebody attempting to bring up topics that transgress the holiness of the place,” the same source concluded.
