In Algeria demolished the Catholic Church to build in its place a mosque

Rome. June 14. INTERFAX – the Catholic Church was demolished in Sidi Moussa near the capital of Algeria, to make room for the mosque and the madrasah.

The authorities took this decision under the pretext of dilapidation of the building and the threat of collapse, according to the Italian website “Asia News”.

The Algerian Constitution guarantees freedom of religion but establishes that Islam is the role of state religion. It also prohibits state agencies to conduct activities contrary to Islamic norms.
