The Moroccan model is for Muslims a "unique opportunity" to be reconciled with oneself as with the other, allowing both to preserve the essence of religion and to be accepted by the other, said Mr. Boussouf  at  the inaugural course of the academic year 2017-2018 at the University of medicine of the city of Oujda,

In his introduction on "Islam and the West :  the misunderstanding",  he pointed out the singularity of the Moroccan religious model that promotes Islam of « the middle » namely the Maliki rite based on the Ash'arite doctrine and Sunni Sufism.  Mr Boussouf added that  the history and experience of Morocco in terms of coexistence between Muslims, Christians and Jews comfirms that it works.
