An unofficial “committee for the promotion of virtue and the prevention of vice” has been launched in Tunisia. The new organisation is not recognised by the government, but no action has been taken to stop its activities. Its members have taken upon themselves to see that Islamic virtues are upheld in public life: they are aggressive towards women who do not abide by their dress code, and they are trying to impose imams with Islamist views on mosques and Quranic schools. Since the Islamist Ennahda party won the largest vote in the elections in October 2011, concerns have been raised that the country will move in an increasingly Islamist direction. Pray that this will not happen, and that the small Christian community in Tunisia will not come under even greater pressure.
