Rabat – The Authenticity and Modernity Party (PAM) has reportedly denied its involvement in re-opening Marrakech’s Dar-Al Quran (or in English, “Quranic School”).
Salafist Hammad Kabbaj’s accused Moroccan preacher Mohamed Ben Abderrahmane Al-Maghraoui of using Quranic schools to “support PAM.” In response, PAM spokesperson Khalid Adnoun said that “PAM is not related to the issue of re-opening Dar-Al Quran.”
He went on to add that Kabbaj chose a political orientation and party that competes against PAM, and he should respect “politics’ rules and ethics.”
In a post on his Facebook page, Kabbaj said that he received videos, audio clips and pictures of Al-Maghraoui’s meeting on Sunday morning, in which Al-Maghraoui urges the Da’wa and Sunnah Association’s (DSA) board to call upon people to vote for PAM.
Kabbaj added that Al-Maghraoui and PAM struck a deal to re-open Marrakech’s Dar Al-Quran, which is supervised by DSA.
Kabbaj expressed his dismay toward Al-Maghraoui for using “the holy Quran in an electoral contest to support a party that wants to ruin the political landscape and abort the reform project that Morocco embarked on since the amendment of new constitution in 2011.”
