According to informed sources from the Ministry of Tourism, the incident had nothing to do with a political movement or organized group. The action was made by two teenagers who took the photo in the beach and circulated it on social media.

“We cannot allow people on their own to begin to dictate their law. Nobody has the right to set themselves up as guarantors of virtue, and still less to tell tourists how they should dress on a beach,” Moroccan Minister of Tourism Lahcen Haddad was quoted by Moroccan news website Le360 as saying.

“The response of public authorities was adequate. And that’s the only way to mitigate the adverse effects that such an act could have on Moroccan tourism,” he added.

Moroccan authorities sent a reassuring message to the public opinion worldwide, stressing that there is no restrictions on the swimming outfits on any Moroccan beach.

The controversial poster sparked debate on social media. A story published by Morocco World News went viral within hours. It was shared by nearly 50,000 people on Facebook, and elicited nearly 600 comments from all over the world.
