Mufti Appeals For Unity In Eid Message

Mufti-Shaban-MubajjeThe Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Ramadan Mubajje has appealed to Muslims to denounce bloodshed. In his Eid Adhuha message to hundreds of Muslims gathered at the Old Kampala Secondary School playground, Mubajje dismissed the growing stereotype that Islam is a religion of terrorism.

Mubajje also lauded the Uganda National Examinations Board’s decision to postpone exams that had been scheduled for today describing the move as a sign of respect for the Islamic faith in Uganda.

Police deployed at a number of places where prayers were held and sounded a call for heightened vigilance.

While we celebrate Eid, we cannot forget the plight and suffering of the Ummah in Syria, Egypt, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen,  Mali, Chechnya, Burma, and the Rohingya Muslims.

We have a tendency to attribute the blame for the plight of the Ummah to the enemies of Islam and external forces. Such an attitude is incorrect.

Islam has always been subjected to external interferences. This will continue. Our focus should be on our weakness and repairing that.

  1. Its obviously important to look at our internal weaknesses, but it is wrong for you to suggest that our enemies are not responsible for our plight! Your statements are not only contradictory, but seriously wrong in material facts. If you call upon us not to forget Egypt, Syria, Palestine, and Rohingya Muslims and in the same message you say that our enemies are not to blame, there must be some thing fundamentally wrong with the way you look at things. How did those countries get where they are according to you? I understand that some times you (leaders) want to sound politically correct, but it is very dangerous for someone in your position to say such things – they are reckless statements in the eyes of your followers. Can you find someone to help you with speeches, especially on such matters?
