ALGIERS- The advisor to the President of the Republic in charge of memory and national archives, Abdelmadjid Chikhi, said that France had killed literate people in Algeria during the first years of colonization.

“During the first thirty years of colonization, France had eliminated the people who could read and write”, he highlighted this Saturday, March 20 from Biskra. And to add, “the role of the Zaouias and the association of Ulemas was neutralized during the colonial era”.

To this end, MR. Chikhi specified, in this context, that the President of the Republic, Abdelmadjid Tebboune, is determined to preserve the national memory so that no ambiguity can remain. “Our archives are overseas. They were stolen and looted, ”he lamented.

Despite the exactions of colonial France, the Algerians knew how to preserve their principles, underlined the adviser of the President of the Republic in charge of the memory and the national archives.

Finally, the historian called for a rewrite of history without obscuring any effort. Because memory helps build Algeria, far from conflicts. As such, he gave a concrete example of the coexistence that had reigned in the country.

“Algeria has known the three (monotheistic) religions and it has been unified by Islam,” he said.
