Muslim body to seek legal redress over billboard removal
Muslim Association of Malawi says it will seek redress on the removal of the billboard that belongs to Islamic Information Bureau.
This follows an outcry from the Muslim community as some people have removed a billboard belonging to Islamic Information Bureau with a message advising people to read Quran.
The message on the bill board did not go well with Evangelical Association of Malawi who demanded the removal of the billboard.
According to the letter addressed to chief executive officer of Blantyre city Assembly, signed by evangelical chairman Rev. Dr. Zacc Kawalala, churches in the Blantyre city were disturbed with the message on the billboard.
MAM publicity secretary sheikh Dinala Chabulika has said “the action by Blantyre City Council and Evangelical Association of Malawi threatens freedom of religion enshrined the constitution of Malawi.”
Sheikh Chabulika said currently MAM and its legal team is preparing to take legal action on the matter and assures all Muslims in the country that justice will be saved at the end.
The MAM publicity secretary further said “ as Muslim leaders in Malawi, we will hold a press conference to clarify some issues on the matter.”
