Algiers: January 4, 2008. (AKI) - Lawmakers from the Algerian Islamic political party of al-Nahda have asked the government to intervene to slow down "the activities of Christian missionaries in the country".

Algerian MP Muhammad Hudeibi was quoted as saying this in the local el-Khabar newspaper. "We want the government to cut down this type of activity because the expansion of evangelisation in Algeria has become an important problem and is not marginal as some think it is," said Hudeibi. For some years, the local media in Algeria have reported on the activities of a number of missionaries, particularly those from evangelical and Protestant churches, who have succeeded in converting entire Algerian families to Christianity, particularly those who come from the eastern area of Kabilia. "We condemn the government`s silence with regard to this phenomenon," said the Algerian MP. "We are collecting the signatures of other lawmakers in order to begin a discussion in parliament on this problem," he said. "All 11 parliamentarians of al-Nahda have been mobilised, but we are convinced that others will also help us." The Islamic party also asked the Algerian ulema or Islamic scholars and imams to give their opinion on the issue of Christian evangelism.
