Rabat, Morocco (TMT)- The Italian authorities expelled two Moroccans last month after they caused disturbances in some of the country’s Catholic churches.
The first person expelled is a 25-year-old man. He broke a 300-year-old wooden cross after throwing it to the ground inside a Venice church.
The second person is 69-year-old. He burst into a church last year and started insulting people inside. The second case of expulsion is controversial though as one of the old man’s family members told local media that the old man suffers from psychological disorders.
The acts of the two Moroccans go against the tenets and fundamentals of Islam. Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) himself allowed Christians from Najran to pray in a mosque as narrated Muhammad bin Ja`far bin Az-Zubayr in a well known hadith (prophetic tradition)
“When their worship time came, they stood up to perform their worship in the Prophet’s Masjid. Messenger of Allah [Prophet Mohammed (pbuh)] said: “Let them (worship)” and they prayed towards east,” the hadith reads.
