Morocco’s Justice Minister, Abdellatif Ouahbi, has firmly rejected the efforts of ‘certain international lobbies’ advocating for the acceptance of a family model that promotes homosexual couples, as reported by Assabah.
The Minister pointed out the increasing pressure exerted by these lobbies, often led by influential figures from around the world.
He underscored the importance of preserving the traditional family model, asserting that the proposed alternative, involving same-sex couples, is incompatible with the values upheld by Muslim countries like Morocco.
Ouahbi emphasized that the Moroccan family model centers on the union of a man and a woman, capable of procreation. According to his stance, a family structure composed of two married men or two married women is inconceivable within the country.
The Justice Minister directly addressed the proponents of these models stating that Morocco will not adopt their principles into its legal system due to their inconsistency with the country’s religious and social values. He called upon them to acknowledge and respect the cultural and religious stances of nations that do not align with their advocacy.
As the topic of family model reform remains pertinent, Ouahbi reiterated the significance of the proposed family code reform, previously endorsed by King Mohammed VI. He stated that the forthcoming reform will reflect a national consensus on family-related matters, reaffirming Morocco’s commitment to preserving its cultural and social values.
