Muslim groups in the country have expressed fears about the “uncompromising” pronouncements made by some Christian groups concerning the raging debate over religious rights in schools and workplaces, particularly as regards Muslims in mission schools.

In a statement, signed on behalf of the Chief Imam by Sheikh Armiyawo Shaibu and Sheikh Dr. Amin Bonsu said the obdurate stance taken by the Christian Council, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference, the Ghana Education Service (GES) and the Ghana National Association of Teachers (GNAT), regarding the Muslim community’s demand for freedom of worship in educational institutions and workplaces in Ghana, could undermine the peace and harmonious coexistence between the two faiths in the country.

It added that that “We are conscious that our rights do not negate or deny any other group from demanding their own rights from the right quarters, because our respective rights are not mutually exclusive. Our understanding is that the constitutional directive applies to people of all faiths and not only Muslims or Christians.

We, collectively, as Muslims, desire no confrontation whatsoever with any religious or any other group for that matter. We are simply asking all to respect our religious rights and freedoms as we give others, and as constitutionally guaranteed.

We are human beings, citizens, and stakeholders in this country who are directly affected by what we see as clear and deliberate violations of our religious freedom guaranteed by the constitution. Therefore, our demand has nothing to do with extremism, lawlessness or politics”, the statement added.
