Morocco has never had such incidence when you look back to the king Hassan 2nd‘s era.
Nowadays, with the all the freedom and the democracy Moroccan government are trying to work on gradually, some few people came up with a new interpretation of Islam.
With the high rate of unemployment, poverty, desperation, lack of the facilities to practice any activities or hobbies and extreme anxiety has made a lot of Moroccan youngster lost their faith to any better changes, they’re fed up with their lives, they lost their sense of what’s wrong and what’s right, they become full of bitterness to the whole system they even lost their hope for life.
They turned into easy target to be misled, promise them a heaven in the second life and they believe that’s worth to kill their selves.
They became blind about the fact that’s they are just killing themselves and other innocent people. More than that they’re making all Moroccans lives more difficult than what it is.
The education in Morocco is not helping at all. We have always been taught that we’re better than the rest of the humans because we’re Muslims. We’re higher & cleaner and the others are dirty & sinner.
I remember few years ago in my parents home, I said “Good morning” to my seven years old sister, she replied to me it’s a sin to say so. She insisted that we have to great each other now on in the house with only “Salaam” at any time of the day. She said her teacher at school said only none believer & sinner who great otherwise.

Islam has been always with life not against it, encouraging Muslims to smile and enjoy the gift of life and made it clear taking other lives is the worst sin you can ever commit. No way, you can dream about getting to heaven afterwards.
