Use Ramadan to counter youth radicalisation, clerics told

22 June 2015, 08:06 Harrison Mbungu

Mombasa - The Kenya National Congress of Pentecostal churches of Kenya has asked Muslim faithfuls to use the holy month of Ramadan to fight radicalization.

The leaders who spoke in a joint press confrence at the Winners Chapel at Kizingo said the war on ideology should only be fought head on by countering false sermons and embracing the right teachings of the Quran.

Led by the congress regional chairman, Rev Tee Nalo and vice chairman Paul Mwaura raised concerns that radicalized youth threatened national security yet it can be fought through religion.

“We urge the Islamic leaders to deal with the issue of radicalization head on and not to leave it to the government. Radicalization is an ideological war that must be won ideologically and it’s incumbent upon the Islamic leaders to counter the false teachings with the truth of what Quran states,” said Nalo.

Muslims around the world began fasting for the Holy Month of Ramadan on Thursday with mission of preaching peace and unity in the world.

Kenya’s Chief Kadhi, Sheikh Ahmed Muhdhar declared the start of the Holy month to over 10 million Kenyan Muslims and appealed to the government to offer enough security before, during and after the fast.

The leaders also asked the government to take stern action on National Assembly majority leader, Aden Duale for failing to name Al Shabaab financiers as he had promised two months ago.
