People in the Tunisian city of Tataouine took to the streets on Friday, June 15, to protest against a blasphemous art exhibition.
The protesters shouted slogans stressing that it is totally unacceptable to mount an exhibition which desecrates the Holy Prophet (AS) and Muslim sanctities, Tunisienumerique website reported.

Tunisia is an Islamic country and Tunisians can not remain silent over desecration of Islamic sanctities, they said. They called on the government of Tunisia to confront sacrilegious actions by certain groups who have targeted Islam’s sacred values.

This was the latest in a series of protest rallies in different cities of the North African country against the blasphemous exhibition. Some of the rallies led to clashes between protestors and police forces.

The exhibition, which was held in the La Mars suburbs of the capital Tunis, has angered the country’s Muslims.

Meanwhile, the Islamist Ennahda party has proposed that the country’s constitution ban desecration of religious sanctities and punishment be considered for those who insult religious values.
