Imams to register mosques, madrassas

23 April 2015, 21:13 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - The Council of Imams and preachers of Kenya (CIPK), have embarked on registration of mosques and madrassas in Kwale in bid to protect youth against radicalization.

This is as a result of the alarming rate at which coastal youth are being lured into joining terror sects therefore posing insecurity threats to the country.

The exercise, according to the CIPK national secretary general Sheikh Khalifa, is aimed at ensuring that all preachers are accountable for any criminal activities within the mosques or madrassas they represent.

“We don’t want to see preaching zones being misused to spread hatred or radicalization among the youth. That is why as religious leaders, we have decided to come up with this exercise,” said Khalifa.

Khalifa accompanied by other top clerics from the South Coast region asked all religious leaders to follow teachings which will not incite but unite Kenyans.

They said the exercise that will be conducted nationally will help monitor activities of religious leaders and also create good information flow amongst the religious bodies.

He cautioned those who involve themselves in terror activities in the name of Islamic religion saying they should be treated as criminals.

“As leaders, it’s the responsibility of every one of us to stand firm and fight against terrorism, drug trafficking and any other form of criminal activity,” he added.

The leaders also urged youth who recently returned from Somalia to comply with the amnesty issued by the government, failure to which they will face the full wrath of law.
