MUSLIMS IN MALAWI APPEAL FOR MORE ISLAMIC SCHOOLS
Islamic authorities have been asked to uplift Islamic and secular studies by constructing more Islamic institutes and secondary schools.
The request was made by Mussah Line head teacher for Malukula primary school in Mangochi during a gathering organised by Malindi radio Islam listeners aimed at informing the communities ABOUT the duties of the grouping.
Line said the area has managed to increase school enrollment of pupils and reduce early pregnancies as well as dropout rate.
However he bemoaned that children in the area are not selected to Islamic schools though equipped with Islamic knowledge in madrassa.
“In addition long distance to secondary schools is fueling school dropout in the area,” Line said.
Commenting Treasurer General for Radio Islam listeners Association Lameck Allen said the request will be discussed at their meeting on 10th April, 2018.
“The Muslim community must respect and love the elderly,”Allen said
Publicity Secretary for Muslim Association of Malawi MAM Sheikh Dinala Chabulika said it is the responsibility of every Muslim to have more Islamic schools in the country.
