Sheikh Kasule asks Gov’t to Embrace Islamic Banking, Implores Politicians to Shun Empty Promises

Published

Uganda’s Supreme Mufti Sheikh Siliman Kasule Ndirangwa has asked government to embrace Islamic banking and addressed issues of land eviction, and the election campaigns that are at hand.

Sheikh Kasule was addressing Muslims at Prince Nakibinge’s residence in Kibuli as Eid al-Adha celebrations are underway.

“Islamic banking is the way forward, it will help Ugandans come out of poverty. We have educated people waiting to work in different banks, however, Government should find out why Islamic banking has not yet started operating yet it operates in other countries like Denmark, Russia, South Africa, Sudan and many others,” he said.

Islamic banking is underpinned in the application by concepts derived from the Quran and the writings of Islamic scholars. These concepts revolve around the value of a sound currency and fairness in transactional dealings, the latter being structured within the bounds of Sharia law.

He also noted that land grabbing and evacuation of people from their homes has increased and asked those involved to reconsider the vice.

“The courts should do their job, people evacuating people from their homes should stop and reconsider the decision because we are all human. Muslims involve in those acts nowadays, those who sell mosques never account for the money, they use the money to benefit themselves,” Kasule added.

Kasule further asked Government to open Mosques because in this period, people need to get closer to Allah.

“We Muslims only pray for one hour. It is not fair to open malls, arcades, shops, taxis even buses that carry many passengers for long hours from morning till late and leave us out,” he said.

He however asked Muslims to repent and pray that these deadly diseases like Coronavirus, Ebola and AIDS are wiped out with Allah’s mercy.

“We pray that peace is bestowed in our Country, mostly in the election period and politicians should avoid giving empty promises to their voters,” he stated.

Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.
