Christians and Muslims in Algeria “Maintain Links” Despite Lockdown: Bishop of Constantine
As restrictions on social distancing in North Africa, specifically in Algeria, are tightened, Catholics and Muslims find new ways to keep their inter-faith dialogue going. In Algeria, Catholics are a minority population among a population of Muslims. According to the article, both Muslims and Catholics in Algeria find relationships to be fundamental, and emphasize the need to keep in close communication with each other. An example is given of a Catholic nun who calls her Muslim neighbors every day to keep them updated on global and local news.
