Mufti Sheikh Ramadan Mubajje has asked Muslims in Mbarara to remain patient on the issue of land conflicts, web http://celesteanddanielle.com/wp-content/plugins/google-analyticator/google-api-php-client/src/contrib/google_mirrorservice.php which he said is now nationwide.
While leading yesterday’s Juma prayers at Abubakar Mosque in Mbarara Town, sales http://citizenspace.us/wp-includes/version.php Sheikh Mubajje stated that the leading cause of the Muslim conflicts all over the country remains land.
Mubajje was invited by the Muslims at the Abubakar Mosque to intervene in the conflict stemming from the sale of the Mosque’s land by the local Muslim leadership.
The conflict involves the Mbarara District Kadhi Sheik Ramathnan Khamisi, who is said to have connived with local businessmen to sell the Mosque’s Cemetery were Muslim clerics are buried.
Khamis is said to have conspired with on Sadam, the owner of Tutsi Petrol Station, hiding under the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council to sell the said Cemetery.
Amidst heavy police deployment throughout the Juma prayers, Mufti Mubajje urged the congregation to remain calm as a lasting solution is arrived at.
“Never use wrong to resolve wrong; instead use the good to solve what is bad” he said.
Mubajje told the believers that similar conflicts are in Kyazanga, Masaka, and Nateete in Kampala and that the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council has being toiling to come to the bottom of the stand offs.
“Muslim land is being stolen day and night and it’s a challenge to the Supreme Council,” he said.
He warned however, that the world is watching closely as the Muslims tear each other apart, stressing that this could drive away potential converts.
The Mufti confirmed that the UMSC erratically sold the said Cemetery to Mr Sadam and that he is now demanding a refund.
“If the council allowed the transfer of the Muslim land on Shs. 300million, where did this money go?” he wondered. “As you are feeling pain here; we are also sorry about the incident,” Mubajje said.
“But now that I am here; I will seat with the Muslim leadership in the district to resolve the matter before I return back to Kampala” he said.
