The leadership of the Ashanti Regional Muslim Community marked the 2015 “Eid-Ul Fitr” (Feast of Feeding) at the Central Mosque, with a call on Ghanaians to be wary of gay marriages.

The Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haruna, preaching to thousands of Muslims noted that same sex marriage was a practice, which does not only defy the logic and laws of nature, but also God’s purpose for mankind on earth.

“How can we foster procreation when people of the same sex decide to marry?” he questioned.

He therefore challenged religious leaders and moralists to wage the needed campaign against the practice.

Sheikh Abdul Mumin said it was unfortunate the manner in which some Western countries, under the guise of human rights, had decided to legalize the practice, and warned that “Ghana should not follow suit to help engender socio-cultural and religious growth”.

The congregation prayed for the poor and aged, leadership of the nation, security agencies, and other identifiable groups for improved and sustainable development.

The Islamic Scholar, touching on the proliferation of betting companies in the country, asked the youth in particular to avoid the temptations associated with “getting rich quick”.

He opined that betting breeds greed, laziness and violence, and stressed the need for the citizenry to take keen interest in hard work for their own good.

Sheikh Abdul Mumin challenged Muslims to live in harmony with other religious bodies to ensure unity and peace in the society.

Mr. Peter Anarfi-Mensah, the Regional Minister, affirmed government’s commitment to work with the Community to achieve the nation’s development objectives.
