We Liberated Libya! Government Backs Fatwa That Bans Women Marrying Foreigners To Prevent Conversion From Islam

The Ministry of Social Affairs has endorsed a fatwa from the Grand Mufti, Sheikh Sadeq Al-Ghariani, that prohibits Libyan women from marrying foreigners.

Al-Ghariani’s call came after he apparently received several complaints from Libyan citizens. These, he said, included allegations that some Christian, Shiites and Druze from different countries have been taking advantage of the chaotic state of the country’s administration to marry Libyan women and make them convert to different religions.
