Leaders condemn raid on terror-linked mosque in Mombasa

03 February 2014, 14:34 Nechesa Chemoi

Mombasa - Leaders from Mombasa County have condemned the attack on Masjid Musa mosque by police, saying the attack was unwarranted and unjustifiable.

Led by Mombasa Senator, Hassan Omar Hassan, the leaders said every citizen deserves the protections and safeguards provided for in the Constitution from the government.

“We as leaders shall never legitimize or accept transgressions on any of our citizens for whatever justifications,” said Hassan.

They rejected the way the government was dealing with the so called extremism and radicalization of Muslim youth in the county.
“Strategies of the government often and only lead to further anger and achieve the opposite,” they said.

They also raised concern over media reports that the government was planning to close some mosques in Mombasa as a way of dealing with the issue, saying it will be an act of provocation.

“We sincerely hope that such reports are untrue as no government can harbor intent of such extreme transgression against any faith,” said the leaders.

They called on all leaders to engage all best efforts, including dialogue to find a solution to the issues affecting Mombasa County residents.

Police said they carried out the raid after getting reports that a meeting to recruit militants was going on in the mosque on Sunday.

The chaos left a young man and a police officer dead.
