RADICALIZING TUNISIA: MUSLIM WOMEN WANT PHOTOS WITH VEIL ON DOCUMENTS

There may be trouble ahead!!

The one thing these dictators were doing was to keep the Islamic radicals in check. That's being ripped apart. There was a demonstration in Tunisia about a week and a half ago ~ where the radicals attacked an area where there were legalized brothels ~ and the interim government decided that now prostitution in these regulated areas would be made illegal.


(ANSAmed) - TUNIS, MARCH 11 - An appeal lodged by Mariem Rezgui at the tribunal of Tunis asks Tunisian Muslim women to be allowed, if they want to, to use photographs in which they wear a veil on all their administrative documents (identity card, passport, driving licence), and the annulment of the Internal Ministry disposition that bans this option. The disposition was accepted by the previous regime for security reasons. In the past days the interim government decided to annul another rule contained in this disposition, the regulation that forbids men to wear a long beard in photos used on official documents.
