Monday, 14 December 2015

The conference of the consultative meeting on the Moroccan community and religious issues in Europe has opened Saturday, December 12, 2015 in Rabat. Organized by the Council of the Moroccan Community Abroad (CCME), the event was marked by the  speech ofM.Abdellah Boussouf, the Secretary General of the Council.

During his opening speech, M.Boussouf stressed the participatory approach that frames the work of the Council as an advisory institution for reflection and evaluation of public policy regarding immigration.
The secretary general of the CCME also indicated that the religious issue occupies a privileged place in the action of Council. Adding that such concerns require the participation of all stakeholders precisely because it concerns living together. Witness the congresses, conferences and meetings initiated by the CCME since its inception, in the presence of religious actors, political, academic or government.

During the session, moderated by Mohamed Kherchich Council member, M.Boussouf recalled that Islam is perfectly compatible with European countries and that the difficulties lie in the integration of Islam by those same countries. And, because of the lack of political will on the one hand, and ignorance of a number of Muslim laws / European legislation on the other hand.
Islam, as a religion, explained M.Boussouf, is undeniably able to adapt and respond to all questions in the world today, but to do so, it needs well educated  Muslim executives, likely to proceed with the adaptation of Islam to the society in which they live. That's why the training of religious leaders  holds a prominent place.

"The hard times we are living call for audacity supported by  Knowledge and awareness. It also requires pointing the dysfunctions of our own education system, "said M.Boussouf.
Recalling the challenges facing Muslims in the context of the latest tragic terrorist attacks in Europe, the head of CCME, called for the establishment of a real strategy, far from discourse of crisis. Not simple speeches,  but an approach that gets to the core of the major and actual failure.
For M.Boussouf, the time has come to revive the real Knowledge. The authentic wisdom in religious matters and to make them available to researchers. The time has also come for Muslims in Europe to produce a religious Knowledge in European languages, compatible with the reality of the countries where they live.  
During the same meeting, Mr. Mustapha El Mourabit (CCME) presented a platform where he outlined the possible solutions to overcome problems related to the issue of relations between Islam and the West.
Mr. El Mourabit also related the components of living together  and complementarity against the temptation of confrontation.
The first consultative meeting was attended by Moroccan imams and experts on religious issues and academics.
The second consultative meeting is held this Sunday, December 13, 2015, on the issue of "scientific research of Islam and of the Moroccan community abroad".
