TUNISIA. Thousands of Muslims demonstrated this Saturday against gender equality and LGBTQ reforms. Examples of things that they oppose is decriminalization of homosexual acts and that men and women will inherite equally.


It was the National Coordination for the Defence of the Quran that held the protest and another one just like it was held earlier this month. It’s the governments reforms that make people protest. Last year it became legal for a Muslim woman to marry a non-muslim and since July a rapist can no longer avoid punishment by marrying his victim. The government is also doing changes to decrease domestic violence which is very common in Tunisia.

I can see their point. Who would not want to marry their rapist?
