Muslims to protest against new security measures

Members of the Islamic community in Naples and surrounding areas are planning to protest newly proposed security measures. The package could make illegal immigration a crime and replace police officers with security personnel to patrol the streets – including soldiers. “The Islamic community of Salerno as well as other Muslim groups from other provinces in Campania will be in Naples to participate in the protest against the government’s proposed security package,” said the imam of Salerno, Rashid Amadia. “Right now, the faithful that come to the mosque are very worried about the new measures that the government plans to adopt on the subject of security and immigration,” Amadia added.
