THOUSANDS RALLY FOR “SHARIAA LAW” IN TUNISIA

>
At least 8,000 Islamists staged a mass demonstration in central Tunis, on Sunday 03/25/2012, in the latest show of force to demand the adoption of Islamic law in the north African country. The rally was led by a Salafist group “Ansar Al-Sharia-Tun” (soldiers of Shariaa)(see – Green-Curtain ).

“The people want an Islamic state”, “the people want sharia (Islamic law),” chanted the protesters, whose number was estimated by a police officer on site at between 8,000 and 10,000 (see – Arab Indication ).Ansar al-Sharia was formed after the Jasmine Revolution of 02/2011 by Sheikh Abu Iyadh , who fought the Americans in Afghanistan, the 30-year-old Sheikh Abu Ayyoub Al-Tunisi and Tarek Maaroufi .

Demonstrators also condemned as “an unacceptable crime” and a “provocative act” the desecration of the Koran and religious sites in incidents in Tunisia last week.
