Morocco: Blogger Quits

A popular and well respected university professor and blogger, Pr. Mohamed Drissi Bakhakhat, decided to stop blogging out of fear for his safety after what happened to Fuad Mourtada, writes A Moro in America.


  • Hi Amira,

    Actually, I decided to stop blogging on MoTIC, an IT blog that was covering IT, and mostly telecoms and media news in Morocco. MoTIC is also a reference for Net censorship in Morocco. Given how the authorities in Morocco handle Internet and technology, I no longer consider that an outspoken blog has its place.

    Please note that I continue to blog on my second blog (about economics), less known: EcoMaroc.

  • this is really sad news. I always admired what Mohamed was doing on Motic.

    too bad
