Shia Rights Watch Voices Concern Over Anti-Shia Sentiments in Morocco

Shia Rights Watch voices its concerns over the increase of anti-Shia sentiments in Morocco in an article published by this organization on its website. This report criticizes the hate speeches and propaganda campaigns against the Shia by Salafi clerics, who are being supported by the Moroccan government. Many recorded cases show us that Salafi clerics have denounced Shia Moroccans using public platforms and issued violent fatwas against them.

The report by SRW further said: As long as anti-Shia sentiments are being fanned out from public platforms, the Moroccan Shia cannot express and practice their beliefs openly. It is a pity to see that the Moroccan government has prevented the Shia of their right to practice their religious beliefs in this country.
