“It is shameful for parents to look on as their daughters wear miniskirts and other clothes that tarnish the name of Islam.”

FORT PORTAL – The Kabarole district Kadhi Sheikh Rashid Kamuhanda has warned Muslims in Uganda against involving themselves in immoral acts as they celebrate Idd el-Fitr.

Kamuhanda made the call while preaching to thousands of Muslims who had turned up for Idd prayers at Fort Portal Main Mosque in Kabarole district.

“It is disgusting to find some of our colleagues filling bars and night clubs instead of staying home to celebrate Idd with their family members and friends in the Islamic way.”

He also warned especially the Muslim youths against indecent dressing after the holy month of Ramadhan.

“It is shameful for parents to look on as their daughters wear miniskirts and other clothes that tarnish the name of Islam.”

The khadi encouraged Muslims to remain prayerful and also maintain the spirit of sharing with the needy and the poor.

The Burahya County MP Sheikh Ramadan Tumwebaze appealed to Muslims to embrace all government programs geared at eradicating poverty.

Tumwebaze observed that some Muslim parents have up to now failed to value the importance of education.

“Muslims we are still lagging behind in terms of development because we have failed to form groups so as to benefit from government programs.”

He also expressed concern about some schools that have failed to honor Idd el-fitr despite government declaring it a public holiday.

“As the Muslim community we are not happy with schools that continue with their normal business on Idd day. Muslim students especially those in candidate classes are even denied the chance to come and attend Idd prayers.”

On his part, the Kabarole district chairman Richard Rwabuhinga observed that the Islamic tradition of ‘Amatali’ is fading out.

“Amatali is one of the many things that used to define Islam religion but unfortunately it is fading out. It’s high time we started teaching the young generation the tradition of Islam.”
