Explain merry-making to followers: Minister charges Muslims Clerics



The Northern Regional Minister, Mr Abdallah Abubakar has called on Islamic clerics and intellectuals in the region to come out and explain to the Muslim Ummah how believers of the religion conduct merry-making.

The minister told a large Muslim gathering in Tamale that it’s about time Imams and scholars in the religion used their pulpits to explain in details how Muslims celebrate any good thing that happens in their lives.

Mr Abubakar’s call comes after nine people including three female died in a stampede at Asawase community center in the Ashanti region during a Salah jam after 2016 Eid -Ul Fitr celebration on Wednesday.

While others are blaming the incident on light out during the jam, others say a fight ensued among some fans, and in an attempt to escape, some fell down.

A popular northern artiste known in showbiz as Fancy Gadam who was one of the performing artistes threw fans to thrills which ended on a very sad note. Our sources say police in the Ashanti region are investigating the incident to verify both claims.

Addressing Masjildul Bayaan Da’awah Caravan on Thursday, a director at the Northern Regional Coordinating Council (RCC), Mr Abubakar Fogor who conveyed the minister’s massage to the Muslim Ummah charged learned Muslim leaders and intellectuals in Islamic region to treat merry-making in Islam as a very serious one to avert the Kumasi incident from raising its ugly head in any part of the country.
