Two teenage girls could be jailed after they were spotted kissing and hugging each other on the roof of a building.

The girls, aged 16 and 17, were reported to authorities in Marrakesh, one of Morocco’s largest cities, visited by thousands of British tourists every year.

Religion should be kept separate from the laws of the land.

Look what happens when it doesn't. It's like going back to the medieval ages.
This is why I would never go on holiday to the middle East / North Africa.

Simply stating "the law is the law" is not good enough and is an insult to how far mankind has come and how it is being dragged back through the dirt.

Lots of you goto muslim countries do we treat you bad do we swear at you the answer is no. But when Muslims come to your countries they get abused soon as they get out of airport.
Who abuses Muslims as soon as they leave the airport.taxi drivers, holiday makers? Get real.X)
We must be one of the most tolerant countries in the world when it comes to other religions, infact i would go as far to say we bend over backwards to make people feel welcome.

Stop the press: Two people did something illegal, and are potentially facing legal repercussions!
Meanwhile...... Saudi Arabia may soon behead a disabled man for taking part in anti-government protests even though he is partially blind and deaf, just another normal day in **** countries eh?

Whether you agree with it or not. The law is the law. Break it and expect to be punished.

I'm not sure they even warrant four stars out of five, but I get what you're saying. It just makes me think that while it's all fun and games to grumble about life in the UK, at least we have our freedom for the most part.:)

Perhaps you think they should change the law, because its insane or perhaps they shouldn't because you don't think its insane?

If people are expected to follow the laws in the UK,then expect the same in other countries. As stated,law is law..wether we like it or not,wether we agree with it or not.

​yes, unless...
that law is discriminatory against a single group and not because of how they harm others
#14
it is according to their religion I guess,hence we should respect whatever laws other countries lay down. We expect the same in the UK,for laws to be followed. And to be honest,even in the UK discrimination is taking place indirectly against certain religions and groups...hence we can't point fingers at other countries.

Laws evolve and change over time along with attitudes.
Homosexual acts were illegal in the UK until 1967 and only recently have Homosexuals been allowed to marry in the UK.
So saying 'The law is the law' isn't the full picture.
#16
So UK isn't a Christian country. Like we all claim it to be.

Morroco is a religious country,if laws are changed according to the times then religion won't exist.

I think their law could do with updating, however that is unlikely to happen given it goes against their religion.

it was illegal for men to be homosexual in this country until not very long ago.
whatever your feelings one way or another how can we start telling another country they are wrong.
if they had tried telling us we were wrong back then what would we have said.

We have to respect other countries just like we expect respect back in UK. Not going to South Africa for instance,that is personal choice and maybe a good thing if you can't abide by the laws there.

I think they deliberately did the kissing out doors to act cocky. They should respect other countries rules. Like rules are used in england or other European. They could have done it indoors but no let's start creating problems and show world how bad Muslims are.

If just on holiday you could surely respect the laws of the land during your short spell there.

People often wonder why so many people flock from the middle east and north africa to the west, its not just because of war.

I agree but what can we do other than abide by their culture/religion as much as we dislike it?.

If they came here and started demanding we change our laws to suit them is that ok?.

​i take it by "you" you mean the British. I have been to quite a few Muslim countries.
when your not spending money in the tourist areas your not treated particularly well and women traveling without men can get treated as sex objects and abused.
I've never personally known a Muslim walk out of a airport and be abused.
sweeping statements like yours cause problems and solve nothing.

It is known as a Muslim country. Majority follow 1 religion there though. Just like UK is called a Christian country..yet have many other religions.

I disagree. Majority of people in the UK are very tolerant of other races and religions,namely the intelligent ones. It is the minority who cause the issues..those who believe everything on the media for instance.

Absolutely, In Turkey the way the men were looking and targeting my daughters was genuinely scary.

Went to Morocco and my wife happened to wear 3/4 length shorts, the locals looked like they were going to pounce on her, Absolutely terrified, couldn't get back to the hotel fast enough.!.
