Muslims Urged to Avoid Discrimination

first_imgThe Chief Imam of the Muslim Community in Nimba County, Alhaji Isa Siaway, has called on Muslims across the country to desist from discrimination and be honest and respectful to everybody, especially non- Muslims.Speaking to reporters in Ganta shortly after the breaking of Ramadan, last Friday, Imam Siaway said that the Islamic religion belongs to all races, regardless of ethnicity and location. “Be a God fearing Muslim and stop any form of discrimination because our God who created us is honest and has compassion for everybody, so we shouldn’t discriminate against others for who they are,” Imam Siaway saidImam Siaway who came from a Christian background, cautioned his fellow Muslims to be respectful of others, especially non-Muslims. That is the only way to win them over to the Islamic faith, he said.“This Islamic religion is clear and simple to all races. It doesn’t favor any race, tribe or from which location one comes,” he added.Prior to the civil unrest in Liberia, the Muslim and Christian communities lived together with no form of harassment, intimidation or molestation, several Muslims who talked to the Daily Observer in Ganta, said.They claimed that politicians and others caused divisions between the two communities and it led to the destruction of churches and mosques, especially in Nimba County.“Now the relationship is once again improving greatly,” said another Muslim who did not want to be identified. “But there still remains some bitterness when it comes to ownership of properties or lands,” he added.Even though Imam Siaway did not mention this in his press briefing, it is widely acknowledged that the Islamic religion belongs to a particular tribe, mainly ethnic Mandingoes, who brought the religion or introduced it to Nimba County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
