Rabat – Head of government Abdelilah Benkirane reacted to the recent events (the girls of Inezgane and the alleged gay man of Fez) that divided the Moroccan society.
Benkirane, who was speaking on Tuesday at a meeting of majority leaders in the capital Rabat, said that the state must remain strong and use force if necessary to protect its citizens.
The head of government’s statement comes in the wake of a series of events in which groups of citizens tried to take the law into their own hands.
Benkirane said that the state holds the exclusive right to maintain and uphold law and order, adding that no one has the right to impose his views on others.
He added that the state should not go easy on those who propagate extreme ideologies, saying that some of these incidents that sparked controversy are fabricated to hinder the government’s work.
Last week, Benkirane also warned citizens against interfering on matters concerning the state’s power to maintain and uphold law and order.
Benkirane reminded all citizens that “the state does not need partners in the fight against infringements or breaches of law and morals.
