The worshippers present at the scene were dumbfounded. This Sunday morning, in a collegiate church full to bursting, a man wearing a djellaba and headgear came to pray. He laid a carpet to the left of the altar, while the Easter mass was underway.
The man, visibly disturbed, read verses from the Koran before writing some lines in Arabic in the parish register. After having caused disruption for the first time during the mass on Palm Sunday one week ago in la Bedugue then in the collegiate church, some worshippers had warned the police.
A team came to ask him to leave the premises, calmly. The deputy commissioner, who had been notified of this disruption to public order, insisted on specifying: “We don’t need to generalise. This inappropriate attitude comes from an individual who is clearly disturbed.”
Here is what he wrote in the church registry before being asked to leave, via Vlad Tepes:
He wrote carefully in Moroccan calligraphy an extract from Surah 112 of the Koran which warns explicitly against the claim by Christ to be the Son of God:
“In the name of God, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful” (basmala)
1- Say: “He is Allah, who is One”
2- Allah, the Eternal Refuge.
3- He neither begets nor is born,
4- Nor is there to Him any equivalent.”
