Supkem will not support radical acts among Kenyan muslims

04 February 2014, 18:33 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Supreme Council of Kenya Muslims SUPKEM will not support radicalism in Kenya and has urged muslim youth to stay away from vices that give Islam a bad name.

There has been tension in the coastal town of Mombasa after security personnel attacked mosques which they termed as housing radicals.

The government has since closed a number of mosques and charged in court hundreds of youth who have been found receiving lessons on radicalism.

According to SUPKEM secretary general Wachu Adan, the move by the government to stop radicalism is within their right and has urged youth to stay away from trouble.

" We are disturbed and angered by the un-islamic actions of youth at the Mussa mosque in Mombasa.

" The action they have taken is unlawful both in Kenyan law and in islam and cannot in any way be supported by any peace loving muslim.

" We condemn both the youths and their uncivil deeds as Islam has a well cultured manner of doing things. Leadership in Islam is nurtured and anchored on trust, ability, knowledge and fairness to dispense justice, he said in a statement.

Over 100 youths have been arrested and charged in court over the radicalistic acts, with their actions being linked to the al-Shabaab terror group which has arranged and executed several terror attacks in Kenya.
