Malawi Muslims up in arms against extended public primary school time table

Muslims in the country are up in arms against the extended public primary school time table which will now keep in class learners from morning to 2pm, saying this would interfere with religious madrasa classes.

Ndovi: Too late to reverse

Ndovi: Too late to reverse

Muslims Association of Malawi official Twaibu Lawe said Madrassa classes start at 2pm therefore the secular and religious classes would clash.

“We will meet the government officials over this because the extension will affect the madrasa classes and we are not happy. We were not consulted over this,” said Lawe.

The extended time table in primary schools is largely on reading of English and Chichewa books.

Education ministry spokesperson Manfred Ndovie said research has shown that Malawi has a dwindling reading culture and the aim of the extended program is to cultivate the reading culture from the younger ages.

He said Muslims should adjust the time Madrasa classes start in order to cope up with the extended secular time table.

Ndovie said the new time table starts this September and it is too late to reverse the situation.

    1. Fig. in armed rebellion. (*Typically: be ~; get ~.) The entire population is up in arms. They are up in arms, ready to fight.

    2. Fig. very angry. (Fig. on {2}, but without weapons. *Typically: be ~; get ~.) Wally was up in arms about the bill for the broken window. I am really up in arms about what happened. THE HEADLINE SAYS IT ALL THAT EVEN NYASA TIMES HATE MUSLIMS.

    zoona nanga inu mwana 10:00am wabwerako kusukulu adzisewera mpaka 6pm basi? thumbs up the ministry, responsibility ya makolo to provide necessary food for the children to go up to 2pm. Muwamva adandaula kuti mpaka 2pm azidya chani kusukuluko kapena boma lidzipereka chakudya? There is no spending in education. Its just investment. Education of the child should not be compromised by the greedy to have all your food at home. Time to wake up from Slumber. Tonse takhala tikudandaula kuti maphunziro alowa pansi mmalawi lets join hands

    Asiyeni aChawa azikawedza nsomba ndi kusoka zovala. Safuna sukulu anganya amenewa. Muslims want their people to remain brutes so they can easily engage in brutal terrorist acts. An educated citizen will never join Islam because this religion believes in terrorism which is a hallmark of a brute and brutality. If you want to help moslems, extend calendar for the Ngaliba’s simba rituals or madrassas, not western education. If you didn’t know, “Boko Haram” is Arabic which means “western education is evil” in English. To them, extending school calendar is equivalent to extending evil.

    These Muslims must not left to dictate their terms as they do to other weak nations.Malawi is a Christian nation of 99.9 percent and therefore we command our own destiny.All this problem was created by Bakili Muluzi when he opened the gates for these killer barbarians and the same Muluzi,smuggled the obnoxious Muthalikas into the country who have caused immense and calamitous political and economic situation.Muslims do not allow Christians to pray freely in their countries,they bomb Christians in their Churches,but when they come to our Christian countries,they do anything they want with impunity.Christians must not bow to these uncultured Muslims and we shall defend our beloved Christianity with all our powers and if they do not want to comply,they must go back from where they come from,we don’t want bloodshed in our peaceful Christian homeland.Nobody will make us part from our loving Prophet Jesus Christ.

    Achawa asiyeni azikwedza nsomba ndi kusoka zovala. Safuna sukulu anganya amenewa. Muslims would like to keep their people brutes so that they can easily engage in brutal acts such as the terrorism they are known the world over for. If one is educated he/she cannot become a muslim because Islam requires that you become a terrorist, a Boko Haram, a Janjaweed, an El Shabab, an ISIS, an Al Quaeda, a Hamas, an Isbollah, etc. Malawi has to educate its citizens to reduce the risk of being infiltrated by Islam – these guys are simply horrible, the worst beasts in the world.

    “Education ministry spokesperson Manfred Ndovie said research has shown that Malawi has a dwindling reading culture”. Mr. Ndovie, not only the reading problem, but in fact, Malawi has the shortest school day in the world! Go to Kenya, primary school learners in infant classes (Grades 1-4) stay in school from 7:30 to 16:30 hours! I have worked with UK partners on education projects and they have always complained about the short school day in Malawi! Let the Muslims go to hell with their Madrassas, never listen to them even when they come to the Ministry!
