Only few days after he called on the Killing of the Moroccan Amazigh researcher and secular activist Ahmed Assid, the highly controversial cleric Abu Naim accused again of “apostasy” the Secretary General of the USFP, Driss Lachgar.
This time, the cleric only resorted to accuse him of apostasy and did not explicitly call upon his killing after he said:
“What Driss Lachgar said is clearly deemed an act of apostasy. This is why I regret that the sentence reserved to unbelievers is not applied in our country.”
Last February, the controversial cleric was sentenced by a Moroccan court to one month in prison and a 500 dirhams fine for “undermining a body corporate” and “defamation” following the release of a video in which he accused of “apostasy” and called for the killing of Driss Lachgar.
Few days ago, Abu Naim sparked again controversy after he called Ahmed Assid a “kafir” (Apostate) that should be killed, because he “left” the norms and the traditions of the Muslim community and its principles, adding that Assid insulted the Prophet Mohammed.
