Alexandria protest held to say that hudoud can only be applied through the proper legal channels

The Salafist Dua group protested in Alexandria today against the application of the Islamic penal code (hudoud) by laypersons.

The group believes that hudoud can only be applied through law and Muslims should not take justice in to their own hands. This would only raise the level of crime and sectarian tension will be ignited in the country.

The protest began from in front of the El-Kaed Ibrahim mosque and marched to the Alexandria Library.
