The Arabic language Al-Mofakirat Al-Islam website said in a report that Tunisia’s Channel 7 TV resumed broadcasting Adhan five times a day by cutting its continually run programs.
“He (Ben Ali) was against broadcasting Adhan, holding Friday prayers in mosques during his rule,” the website said.
The ousted president was also “bitterly opposed to hijab (Islamic dress code) and imposed a ban on many veiled Muslim women,” Al-Mofakirat Al-Islam added.
Ben Ali ruled Tunisia for more than two decades. His era was marred by repeated human rights violations and torture.
On Sunday, acting leaders in Tunisia discussed the composition of a unity government as post-revolution unrest continues to grip the North African country.
