According to various news reports, Morocco’s government has launched a crackdown on promotion of homosexuality, saying it threatens religious and moral values.
The Interior Ministry said activities that go against such values will be “repressed.”
The move apparently is a response to increased media coverage of gay issues, couples and weddings.
The ministry denounced media outlets “that defend ignoble behaviors that constitute a provocation of national public opinion and fail to take account of the moral values and doctrines of our society.”
