KAMPALA - The head of the Tabliq Muslim sect Sheikh Muhammad Yunus Kamoga has appealed to the local Muslim community to remain united amid challenges they face.
Kamoga, who is behind bars, made this remarks Friday while presiding over prayers to mark Eid-El-Fitri inside Luzira Maximum Security Prison.
"I appeal to the Muslim community to remain united despite the challenges we are going through. We should forgive each other.
"Circumstances should not split us apart because where there is a beginning, there must be an end," he urged fellow Muslims.

Kamoga was charged with five murder counts, including last month's killing of Muslim clerics Mustafa Bahiga and Kadir Muwaya.
The Muslim leader asked his fellow inmates to realize their past mistakes and ask Allah for forgiveness.
"This is the right time for you to realize your past mistakes and so it's important to ask Allah for forgiveness to ensure that you do not repeat the same mistakes.
“It would appear bad if the Holy Month [of Ramadhan] found you a sinner and leaves you a sinner," he cautioned.
