Mosques and Quran schools to counter evangelization “fierce attack”

El Khabar, 24 March 2008

An official report on Protestant churches’ activity in Algeria has urged authorities “for a cultural and material reinforcement,” in order to counter what it called “the fierce attack” targeting the Algerian people in their unity and religion.
The same report has further recommended getting the help of Quran Schools and mosques by providing them necessary material and human means for playing an efficient role in terms of countering evangelization.
A copy of the abovementioned report has been submitted to Home Affairs Ministry.
It says that along 2004 to 2007, the national public opinion has been preoccupied by the merging of evangelization phenomenon in Kabylia region, while indicating that the most important emissary’ fiefs are located in many other provinces like: Chlef, Bejaia, Biskra, Blida, Tlemcen, Tizi Ouzou, Algiers, Setif, Sidi Belabes, Constantine, M’sila, Mostaghanem, Boumerdès, Khenchla, Annaba, Tamenrasset, and Oran.
The same report further underscored that the leader of evangelization in Algeria is the former pastor of the Protestant Church in Algeria, Rev. Johnson Hugh.
To recall, Algerian Authorities have issued an extradition order against the Rev. Johnson Hugh following abuses of the law on religious rites for non-Muslims.
Furthermore, the report recommended giving more importance education in the Kabylia region, while pointing out the significant lack in terms of religious formation in mosques, saying Religious Affairs Ministry shoulders responsibility.
It further recommends toughing control over Christian clergyman visiting Algeria in the frame of “supposed cultural activities,” as well as expanding prerogatives of Religious Affairs Ministry in this issue.
