Anti-proselytism law passed in Algeria.

Yep! In Algeria this week, the law was passed by the nations counsel. The later law stipulats that every incitement into converting to other religions but Islam will be punishable by a 2 to 5 years and a fine of 5.000 to 10.000 Euros will be the result.
Read the article (French).

I am not saying that this is a bad or a good thing, right or wrong; but I think that it should have been handled differently. Formulated this way some people might see it as an incitement to be an anti-anything but Islam.

I really don’t know, I am starting to think that the world is going nuts!

Hi Soumiaz,

I think that people having power (also nations counsel)in algeria don't represent any religion, but themselves, (and probably) those people are responsible for the criminal acts taking place in this country, principally against muslim people (so against islam)

I was watching Al-Jazeera yesterday and it is scary most of muslim countries and muslim clerics are actually suggesting the same thing. That if cought in a muslim country, evangelists should be punished.
