Mia made the call after donating food items meant for breaking Iftah during this Moslem Holy month of Ramadhan in Mangochi on Wednesday.

He said it is important to remind people of other religious persuasions that coexistence was critical to the countrys development which would foster growth.

“Malawi being a God fearing nation automatically becomes an inter — denomination country where there are many religions. It is important, therefore, to live in harmony to develop the country together,” Mia said, adding that the Islamic religion stands for peace.

Mia said the Islamic teaching has an aspect of charity, observing that doing charity is a must for every Muslim who can afford to donate.

He added that giving alms is one of the pillars of Islam to ensure that those in need benefit from such charitable activities.

“Both as a Muslim and somebody who believes in the Islamic faith, I consider it as an important aspect that every year in this Holy Month I should be able to donate and give out to my fellow Muslims by distributing food items and sometimes even money to help them start some small scale businesses,” Mia added.

Speaking in a separate interview, one of the beneficiaries, Sister Diana Matola thanked Mia Foundation for the timely donation, saying the food items were relevant to the needs of Muslims for starting and breaking the fasting in the morning and evening respectively.

Matola, therefore, appealed to other Muslims to emulate the example set by the Mia Foundation, saying there were many Muslims who fail to observe the Holy Month because of inadequate food supplies.

Moslems throughout the world are observing the Holy Month of Ramadhan which started on June 7 and may come to an end early July depending on the sighting of the moon.

    Hahaha sometimes i wonder why people that hate islam so much with a passion still read things about muslims and islam. It just shows that Islam is a true religion and strangely muslims will rarely comment bad things about other religions because they know and are feel strong about what they believe in hence seeing no need to attack other people by saying bad things about them. Earth is hell for believers and heaven for non believers that is why non believers will always have something bad to say about believers. Allah forgive them for they know not of what they are doing

    Malawians,do not be hoodwinked by sweet words of togetherness.As far as Islam is concerned,it is a cult of violence and hatred.Their target is to dominate the whole world Islamically hence,the untold bloodbath around the planet.Just imagine,few days before the end of their so-called HOLY MONTH,hundreds of innocent people lost their life in cold-blood and most recently,at Instanbul Airport in Turkey several innocent souls have been lost through indiscriminately and wanton shootings by Islamic hoodlums in the name of their Allah (GOD) and just yesterday the 30th of June,6 innocent and poor villagers were gunned down by Al Shabaab in Northern Kenya as for Malawi,it is indeed,a matter of time you just trust them,you will regret.Right now,these people use all sorts of tactics to wear you down,already they have come with a dubious notion of building an Islamic University that would be the first and only one in Sub Saharan Africa.Malawians,do we really desire this pseudo butcher house in our peaceful and Civilised nation? You have seen most recently in Europe and the USA the overwhelming resentments of Islamic presence in their countries and you have seen macabre slaughters of their own people in the Middle East and elsewhere.Malawians,take heed,you will very soon be pushed into the lake of a molten lava.GOD PROTECT US FROM JIHADISM!!!!

    Islam..VERSES FROM THE QURAN.. EVIDENCE THAT ISLAM IS Clearly and Concisely Evil, Violent, and Intolerant
    Every time I write and article that sheds Islam in a negative light, my life gets threatened by muslims, I get hate messages from liberals, and I’m labeled a ‘racist’ by idiots who do not realize that Islam is not a race.
    If Muslims are so proud of their quran, why would they threaten my life for simply sharing verses straight from their “holy book”?
    Islam is also not a religion,
    It is a theocracy and terrorist cult that hides behind the mask of religion in order to acheive its mission of world domination.
    Furthermore, people, including news anchors who call islaic terrorists “extremists and radicals”, are wrong… They are DEVOUT muslims simply following the dictates of their koran.
    I have read the koran and studied it thoroughly. I have read the muslim brotherhood’s documented plan for the destruction of America from within.
    I will not submit or convert and I will not allow the death threats, the name calling, and the pack threat mentality stop me from telling the truth about Islam.
    Here it is folks… straight from their own Quran.. You read the verses below and you decide..
    Peaceful religion…??? NO WAY…
    Fact: in the 1400 year history of islam, muslims have murdered over 270 million people.
    Fact: Since 911, muslims have committed over 23 thousand deadly terror attacks around the world.
    Fact: Islam can not and will not peacefully co exist with any other religion on earth. Never.
    Fact: Where are all those so called “peaceful” muslims when the terror attacks occur? Why do they not stand publicly against the attacks as a religious group? The reason….. is in the verses below… It goes against their koran.
    Muslim (20:4645) – “…He (the Messenger of Allah) did that and said: There is another act which elevates the position of a man in Paradise to a grade one hundred (higher), and the elevation between one grade and the other is equal to the height of the heaven from the earth. He (Abu Sa’id) said: What is that act? He replied: Jihad in the way of Allah! Jihad in the way of Allah!”
    Muslim (20:4696) – “the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said: ‘One who died but did not fight in the way of Allah nor did he express any desire (or determination) for Jihid died the death of a hypocrite.’”
    Muslim (19:4321-4323) – Three separate hadith in which Muhammad shrugs over the news that innocent children were killed in a raid by his men against unbelievers. His response: “They are of them (meaning the enemy).”
    Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.” Ashraf was a poet, killed by Muhammad’s men because he insulted Islam. Here, Muhammad widens the scope of his orders to kill. An innocent Jewish businessman was then slain by his Muslim partner, merely for being non-Muslim.
    Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.
    Ibn Ishaq: 327 – “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”
    Ibn Ishaq: 990 – Lest anyone think that cutting off someone’s head while screaming ‘Allah Akbar!’ is a modern custom, here is an account of that very practice under Muhammad, who seems to approve.
    Ibn Ishaq: 992 – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.” Muhammad’s instructions to his men prior to a military raid.
    The Quran:
    Quran (2:191-193) – “And slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution [of Muslims] is worse than slaughter [of non-believers]… but if desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah.”
    There is a good case to be made that the textual context of this particular passage is defensive war, even if the historical context was not. However, there are also two worrisome pieces to this verse. The first is that the killing of others is authorized in the event of “persecution” (a qualification that is ambiguous at best). The second is that fighting may persist until “religion is for Allah.” The example set by Muhammad is not reassuring.
    Quran (2:244) – “Then fight in the cause of Allah, and know that Allah Heareth and knoweth all things.”
    Quran (2:216) – “Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” Not only does this verse establish that violence can be virtuous, but it also contradicts the myth that fighting is intended only in self-defense, since the audience was obviously not under attack at the time. From the Hadith, we know that Muhammad was actually trying to motivate his people into raiding caravans with this verse.
    Quran (3:56) – “As to those who reject faith, I will punish them with terrible agony in this world and in the Hereafter, nor will they have anyone to help.”

    Why did Mia have to say about coexistence between people of different religions as if there have bee scuffles? Sometimes people who have nothing to offer would say anything. I think the man is missing telling the nation lies as he used to do when he was a politician. I find the talk about living in harmony rather senseless when already that is exactly the status quo in Malawi.Nzosatheka kungopereka mbuzi ndi mpungao ndi kuwauza anthu kuti kagoneni bwino, koma kunena zopanda pake ,kuzolowera nkhondo eti? Malawi has always been a peaceful nation and why talk about the obvious? To me this is not news.

      I strongly disagree with Gogodasi. Its useful and important to prevent than to cure. You want Mia to say this when things get worse? That’s unwise man. Mia is very wise. There will be no good time to advise this one.
