Sheik Idruss Mahomed:: Its persecution against Muslims

The Muslim mother body in Malawi the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) has distanced itself from accusations it says are made by the Malawi police officers linking the religious body and its members to a terrorist organization.

General Secretary for MAM Sheikh Dr. Salmin Omar Idruss  said in a statement issued Sunday that the association has heard that  some police officers are linking Muslims in Malawi to terrorist groups and that the Muslims are not supposed to own land in Blantyre

“We found these sentiments to be segregatory.  MAM has no connection to any terrorist group or any of its members,” says Idruss, “We are therefore dismayed the some elements in the society are discriminating MAM and its general membership based on their religious beliefs,” he adds.

The Sheikh was reacting to the arrest of Muslims on Friday for allegedly hacking and terrorizing the villagers who have encroached piece of land which is believed to belong to an Islamic Institution known as Blantyre Islamic Mission.

Idruss says in the statement the truth of the matter is that Muslim legally acquired the piece of land in 1986 which is known as Gada Farm situated at Chadzunda area in Blantyre.  He said the ownership of the land was confirmed by the High Court in its judgment on June 11, 2013.

“From 1986 to 2012 MAM has been using the land peacefully without anyone claiming ownership of any right to the land. From early 1990s MAM entered in tenancy agreement with Speedys which lasted until 2011.

“In 2012 MAM noticed that some people were encroaching on its land a period during which it was about t to enter into another tenancy agreement with Petroda Company. However, the new tenant pulled out of the agreement due to the disputes”.

Idruss says in a bid to resolve the matter peacefully MAM has on several occasion held discussion with traditional authority Somba , the police at Milare as well as Blantyre and also the district commissioner for Blantyre.

“But the encroachment activities on the land continued.”

He says to ensure that the dispute is in accordance with the law, MAM instituted proceedings against the villagers where it turned out that the MAM was the legal owner of the land.

“While we expected that the matter will settle down following the court judgment, the Villagers have continued the terrorist activities against MAM officials assaulting them and tenants on the farm. The victims are Sheikh Muhamad Silika, Mr Sherif Kananji, and Mr Hassan Twibu. Some have been seriously injured and other have lost their possessions,” says Idruss.

“These acts are criminal and the police needed to take action by arresting the culprits and protecting Malawian citizen but nothing of the sort has happened. MAM believes that the passiveness of the police in failing to enforce the court judgment is encouraging the villagers to continue with their criminal activities against Muslims.

” Given these facts, MAM is compelled to believe that the some of the personalities in police are conniving with villagers to deprive Muslims of their rights in this country.

“We have heard the some villagers and police officers are saying the Muslims are not supposed to own land in Blantyre. Police officers have also linked Muslims in Malawi to terrorist groups..”

General Secretary for the Islamic Commission for Justice and Freedom, Hassan Chimwala has also condemned the Malawi Police for linking Malawi Muslims to Boko Haram.

“What type of police officers are we having in this country. Do they teach them racism when conducting their trainings? Do they know who Boko Haram are? Where is justice going? Is the law only applying to Muslims?” queries Chimwala.

Boko Haram, a Hausa term meaning “Western education is sinful”, is loosely modeled on Afghanistan’s Taliban.

The militant group says it is fighting enemies who have wronged its members through violence, arrests or economic neglect and corruption.

Chimwala said Malawi Muslims are not connected in any way to Boko Haram, reminding Malawians that “unprofessionalism of police officers has contributed to causes of civil war in some countries.”

He has also criticized media outlets that branded Muslims who went to protect their land as “terrorists”.

“This is bringing confusion in the country which would eventually lead to riots.”

Malawi is officially a secular nation. Islam is the second largest religion in the country after Christianity. Muslims account for 36% of the country’s 16 million population.

    Nicely written piece. It is wrong to use violence against the encroachers but let us not forget that this problem would never have arrisen if there had been respect for Land rights by both the traditional authorities and the police. Such ‘Land invasions’ cannot have taken place without the tacit approval of the chief or is the traditional authority no longer relevant in modern Malawi?

  2. True man says:

    My free advice to MAM & entire muslim community ‘If you judge yourself correctly no one will judge you but self justification will take you no where’. somebody said koran 9 verses 27, 28 & 29 encourages its followers to kill christians so You wanted to kill those villagers in the presence of police & should smile at you. Boko haram is an islamic group so as you are, boko haram believes in killing christians just as you believe too by your words you arent boko haram but by your actions you are.

    Christianity originated from, Jesus came to Africa when Herod sought to kill. The coptic christians in Egypt and Ethiopia have been there since the time of apostles. Judaism started in Africa with Musa or Moses. Islam started in Saudi Arabia.

    1. Uhudi says:

      Christianity started when Jesus already taken to heaven my dear, zinayambina kwa Antiokea Yesu atapita kale kumwamba. Christ means Messiah or Anointed one. this name was for Jesus. Jesus was not A christian. Jesus never mentioned in his mouth the birth of christianity as a religion, only Saulo the one you Paul today. Islam is there will there and will die for it. I myself I will fight this if any country or person try to destroy the image or castigating my religion. The only true religion in the earth.

    Shariah says has a husband can beat his wife. Shariah says that in a court of law the evidence of a woman is worthy half that of a man. Koran 9 verse 27,28 and 29 says that we must fight Christians until they submit to Allah.

    Christianity vs christians, and Islam vs moslems: Very few christians know or understand these things let alone those so called Pastors, Clergymen,Wisemen, Abusa, Aphedule, akulu ampingo ndi amayi amvano ndiye sorry verry worse! Christianity and christians are two different things so too is Islam and Moslems. I dont like commenting on religious issues only very quick to speak out and defend where Islam is being attacked. Malawian christians, very foolish, seem to understand religious issues but they are empty buckets on these matters, always claim Malawi to be theirs yet they know or even dont know that Malawi is a secular country and that apart from the traditional religious acts, Islam was the first religion to spread into Malawi. They should go back to school and take History subject.
    Do not argue with a fool for you will become a fool too.
    Blasphemous religions always shine, their followers feel on top of others, Hello fire is waiting for them, please Moslems stop arguing with them as you know from the Quran and true original Bible how those hypocrites behaved in those days, nothing new with today Malawian so called christians or born agains.

  10. Key says:

    It is not strange to see or hear that those who follow the trueth are being killed even on their land,all the messangers Of God including Jesus the son of Mary faced the same fate,he was said alot of things,beaten,chased out, etc by the same people who call themselve christians to day, and are the same people who leave their countries going to muslim countries for killing and steeling their resources.Have you ever heard that muslims have gone to christian’s countries to kill christians?but we have been seeing christians going to muslim lands.Between the one who moves from his own land to attack some one on his land who is a terrosits? Only those with proper knowledge will understand what is going on,will know the right path:All stanic activities are dominated in christian world did your God or jesus teach you stanism? The more you say bad things about Islam the more you christian members get right answers to different questions. Some of the questions being answered are: why christians kill muslims?,why muslims own lands with valuable resources?why muslims do not go out to christian lands to fight? Why christian groups do not called terrorists?why christians do not win? Why Islam increases fast reguardless the christian’s propaganda? After finding answers for these questions you find many christians joining Islam. We therefore encourage you to insult and say alot about islam this helps us alot, people do research and discover the goodness of the only religion accepted by the Almighty GOD (islam)

  13. Jigidijigidi Jaba says:

    From the comments made here it clearly show that very few people in Malawi are religious. The measure of hatred reflected in most of the comments, particularly from among ‘Christian’ protagonists are all full of hatred and resentment; wishing Muslims ill.

    I do not believe The Christ in support of such. If you hate Muslims and regard them as enymies, didn’t The Anointed One advised U to love your enymies? If you regard Muslims as Sinners unlike U; Didn’t the One Born without a Father informed U that he came for Sinners? Are you not instructed not to judge?

    I have also noted with concern that religion is also being used as a reason for disenfranchising our compatriots. Let’s us know that no religion except Chipembedzo Chamakolo is indigenous to Malawi. Christianity originated from Europe (RC, Italy; Anglican, England; AOG and SDA(among other), USA; others. are originating from Nigeria etc.) while Islam from the Arabian peninsula.

    Here ït is clear that if we were to say every adherents of these religions should go where the religions originated, very few will remain in this country.

    From the comments, it is also apparent that the. Kind of education, be it the so called secular or religious, our people are accesssing in this country is loop-sided resulting in the poor level of analysis of issues reflected in the comments posted here. Comments by compatriots who benefited from a balanced, non-sectarian, education are not difficult to figure-out. They are sober and illuminating-reflecting godliness. Comments by those who were deprived of such kind of education have a strong manifestation of hatred, malice, and genocidal under tones- point to possible wish for ethnic or is it religious cleansing.

    Terrorism is not only physical it is even verbal as well as psychological. Anything said to hurt someone or a group; to make it feel less human is a form of terrorism. And if we go by that you’ll notice that most of my Christian compatriots fall in this category. Finally, let me advise all that it is not fair even by whatever religious standards to judge a religion by the behaviour of its followers. The fact that there are some Muslims involved in violence does not mean that Islam is a religion that condones violence. The fact that almost all cashgate suspects, sex workers, and those propagating homosexuality are Christians does not reduced Christianity to be a religious that condones such vices. Each religion has it rotten apples; some of who may be us making hate comments here. Let’s reflect over our quality of faith based on the true teachings of the religion we follow before we hasten to indict those whom we regard as our enemies in faith. Who knows we may be indicting ourselves. Moreover strive to know the religion of your perceived enemies; that will help you understand whether the problem is the religion or the individuals.

    Sionse akuti ambuye ambuye akalowe muufumu wakumwamba. Ena akeuzidwa kuti choka iwe wakuchita zoyipa; ine sindikudziwa konse.

    I rest my case.

    #43 ndi chindere chakufikapo. The villagers even hacked the Milare Police officers. Who are the terrorists in this matter if not the villagers. You are suggesting that Muslims should not own land in Blantyre but Christians should own land in Muslim areas like Mangochi, Machinga, Balaka, etc? Imagine Christians have terribly invaded Mangochi. They have set up Radio Maria, University, etc in Mangochi, the Muslims home ground. Why not go to Mchinji? Takutoperani tikakuchitani smoke out. You can take Gada but we will re-poses all our land occupied by Aroma, Anglicans, etc in Mangochi. Who will lose more between Asilamu and Akhristu omwa magazi (a yesu) ndi a anthu wamba omwe (Satanic)? It must be put clear here that Muslims are not second class citizens in this country, Christians perhaps are, because Christianity came leter than Islam.

  28. dadaboma says:

    If the land at Chadzunda legally belongs to moslems, then the moslems need to go through legal processes to remove encroachers. They need to sue the encroachers. If the encroachers are successfuly prosecuted and found guilty, then the law enforcers will enforce court verdict. If the law enforcers (police) fail to enforce the law, then the police can be sued for negligence of duty. In most cases the police are not negligent. But the moslems cannot take the law into their hands by violently confronting the encroachers. This is what terrorism is all about – taking the law into your hands and using violence in the name of protecting your right. Moslems are by nature terrorists. They can refuse this and claim to be peaceful but the truth is that these people, wherever they are, are violent terrorists. They even terrorize people at M’mbelwa district council in Mzimba, far away from their home in Mangochi, evicting pork sellers in the market in the name of protecting their religious right. These people are bullshit, stinky and abhorrent imbeciles that have no human face. Malawi needs to get rid of these pests; we don’t need them and their dead prophet taught them violent inhumane manners that inflict pain on innocent people of the world. These Janjaweeds, Boko Harams, Al Shababs, etc need to be obliterated from the face of the world so that the world can see peace. People at Chadzunda should not give up their land – it is their forefather’s land. The moslems should go to Mangochi where their land lies, not laying their hands on what belongs to others. Blantyre is not Mangochi.

  34. Ibn Majid says:

    The Caliphate that was foretold by the prophets is coming. We start by buying all the land in non muslim countries and ensure all tenants are muslim or who will abide to muslim rules. As landlord I don’t allow my tenants to eat pork or drink beer on my plot. Our mission is to buy all entertainments places in the country and turn them into madrasses. Panorama at Chileka Roundabout is one such place. We have the finances and surely we shall succeed.

    May Allah guide them inshaAllah one day they’ll see the light and come to terms that Islam is the only true religion and Muhammad (PBUH) is really last Prophet of Allah Jesus prophesied
    (there are many verses in the bible supports this),it’s absurd to say that Jesus meant (the holy spirit)
    The holy spirit has been there from the time Allah created Adam ,get your facts straight before its too late

    1. St Matthew says:

      We must judge ourselves, and judge of our own acts, but not make our word a law to everybody. We must not judge rashly, nor pass judgment upon our brother without any ground. We must not make the worst of people. How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

      These are teachings of the real “Prince of Peace”. In his teachings not even once does he advocate violence. He told his disciples to go spread the word although there were going to suffer for his name. He advised his followers not to take up their swords even if to defend themselves. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Jesus, is the name. If anything, this is the only name that deserves the words “peace be upon him” each time it is mentioned. But Jesus, being the Jesus I know, his works speaks for him.

      “Let any one of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her.” But what do we see nowadays. People with bags of sins behind them stoning women to death for adultery. For a woman to commit adultery, she needs a partner. Where are those partners? Probably in the group stoning her. The prophet Muhammad tried to model his life towards Jesus, but you and me know what happened.

    Does the Malawi Government realises that civil wars starts by some impetience Men and Women in uniform who unfairly treats Religious groupings?we Muslims of Malawi have nothing to do with the Terrorists and even the act itself is an Islamic,so why link us with such dustadly acts?has Malawi have the capacity to contain the civil war if ignated?we therefore,urge those responsible Police offitials to discipline their juniors to desist from utering and behaving in a manner that would cause unrest in God given peaceful Malawi.

  42. Emmanuel says:

    Both the villagers and the muslims are in the wrong. The MAM spokesperson is even wrong by not choosing words well. He is over reacting. The courts are best placed in such land wrangles as they did initially. If you go with a panga to the villagers, they too will use one to defend themselves. The police did not arrest muslims but the ones who caused bodily harm on others since it is criminal offence and has to be treated as such. Take the villagers to court and they will pay heavily than mobilising yourselves into battle with the villagers, no wonder people will quickly compare you with what BOKO haram is doing in other countries. That is the only civilised way to do which MAM should have been first to advise.

All these crimes being committed are commited by the police becoz they are the biggest culprits. The police are involved in each and every crime committed due to unprofessionalism and greedy. They are the ones that lead in organising crime. I don’t trust anyone in police uniform. If you want a war with us, just try. Have you ever heard of suicide bombers. Try it and see if Malawi can handle it. Mbavha ndipresidenti wanu wakuba. Matanyula.

  45. Tione says:

    Yes i agree with the police if you let the Muslim buy your land, kenaka azayamba kukuuzani kuti pano nkhumba ayi. Alekeni azikagula kumangochi kwaoko basi

    A voice said from the cloud, ‘This is my son(Jesus), whom I(God the Father) have chosen- listen to him!” Luke 9: 35. ”This, then, is what I command you; love one another.” says Jesus Christ on John15: 17. God bless.

  47. citizen says:

    Muslims own land throughout the country as Malawians. Not long ago they chased a man selling pork in Mangochi declaring it a no go zone yet there are many people living there who eat pork. This was infringing on there rights yet they buy land everywhere even where pork is sold. What does this say of Islam. Intolerant.

  48. Magagula says:

    Are they religious? These are terrolists asakane. This religion is always a problem wherever they are unlike christian bolanso rasta zimatha nkukambirana.

  49. achewa says:

    why is it that when such things happens ,muslims starts thinking of riots but when they do such bad things to others like mangochi issue ,do they think that their act will bring confusions and riots

  51. Haram says:

    Sure? For every 100 people in Malawi 36 are Moslems. Who did the statistics and when?

  52. Patriot says:

    Ati religion of peace…..my foot. Kulikonse kuli khondo kuli asilamu. ma sataniki awa.

  53. Njakata says:

    police officers behave and work as professionals in your field of work, you have increased crime your own groups thieves whom you support. Now you have started racism if joined police services as hiding place you will face the consequences we are checking each and every act with keen interest and soon you will be mobbed.

  54. Che Sinjinji says:

    So many satirical stories and pictures have been told or made about Jesus Christ and/or Christianity . The people behind such things have never been threatened with Death Fatwas . But just dare say something deemed insulting to Muhammad or the Moslem Faith and see if you will not be hunted down and killed . The reason : the Moslem Faith knows it has to use violence in order to survive because it is built on very flimsy foundations . Anything which is inherently strong does not need to use the threat of violence to defend its own continued existence .

  55. Mugonapamuhanya says:

    Mr Chibwe, who told you that Muslims account for 36% of Malawi’s population? Check your stats first before you publish anything otherwise people will not take seriously the already questionable online news.

  56. Cicero says:

    Muslims were on forefront discarding the grievance of the Tumbuka on their plight in this country. It was one of their sheiks defending unitary state which discriminate the Tumbuka. Thus how it pains the Tumbukas when the whole government sidelines a tribe. Don’t cry MAM support the government. If indeed you behave as Boko Haram why not call you such? Why think of civil war on a simple land issue when the North has a host of grievances such as Quota System, underdevelopment, racial discrimination etc? Mwaona anthu akumwera mukuganiza za civil war mukakhala pa mavuto koma anzanu kudandaula mukuti zitsiru. God punish you by making you multiply ngati mchenga kuti muzikhapana ndi zikwanje. Mwachuluka kwambiri! Apolosi langani Boko Haram iyo!

  57. jedi says:

    In as much as this story carries the version of the MAM side without any from the local villagers and police But Police are sick!!!

    Nowadays the police force seems to be a damping ground for sadists who appear to have personal vendettas to settle with the rest of the law abiding citizenry at large. Every other day you are hoping not to have any encounter whatsoever be it just just a mere “muli bwanji Bwana…” coz Police will treat you as if they caught you redhanded commiting the most hinneous crime you can imagine.

  58. What we need as a nation is not hypocrisy.We are full of false pretence, all the way from coronial era, via Kamuzu era up to modern times .We moslems are only needed for political gains, not otherwise. What does it mean moslems can not own land in Blantyre?

  60. Boko Haram says:

    Stupid. 36% is almost half. Yachokera kuti? Thses arr lies we don’t want. These people are threatening world peace and it does not matter where they are. A few of them can cause havoc. In Kenya they are very few but they managed to attack Wrstgate killing many people. They have a bad ideology of killing all Christians and nob muslims. They rely on suicide missions to achieve their objective of establishing a Muslim state. Watch out.

  61. collins says:

    these guys are always violent and disturbed,why are they accusing everyone,villagers ,police and the media and they think they are saints?

  62. DAUD says:

    Poti asilamu ndi obwera ku malawi kunopamene amagula malo eni dzikowa anali kuti?

  63. nyani says:

    In fact,we don’t have police in Malawi..what we have here are only thieves, zigawenga, mbuzi za apolice..what they know is begging people, standing on the roads stealing the minibus drivers’ money and some people..pathetic.

  64. Kwaderatowi says:

    Boko Haram inu basi. Fotseki! Pano ndanyamuka wokagulitsa nkhumba mu msika pa mangochi apa. Mundipeze!

  65. innocent says:

    Point of correction – Malawi is not a secular state, its a silent Christian State where we allow other religions to co-exist. Christians please let us raise the standard, our silence is bringing in these silly issues with Muslims and the homosexuality groups – claiming unnecessary rights over us! Can we stop this!

  66. opportunist says:

    Why does these pple like violence .What is so special with them to extent of hacking pple

  67. Tiko says:

    It appears both the muslims and the villagers are wrong. Moslem bodies talk tough and overexagerate the words they use. Sign of inferiority complex. In any case the muslims have only justice path to follow, the same courts they used before, not violence.

  68. Nyapapi says:

    Achawa ndinu wandu wovuta inu! Mumakonda kusokonyeza paliponse.

    Ndiponso apolisi akulakwitsa, ndinu a Al-Shabab osati Book Haram!

  69. Curious says:

    Yes the land is legally owned by Muslims who probably acquired it using middle east oil money at the expense of the locals in that area. But do you think the action taken to go out to Blantyre and hire out thugs to attack the villagers can be justfied ? While making an attempt to clarify the history behind the fracas I find it unacceptable for an organisation like MAM to fail to equally condemn its membership for the overzealous action taken on the matter. By the way dont exaggerate the remarks made by Police Officers on the ground as these do not represent the official position of the Police. Rather you should try to argue whether the arrests were legal or not. take to task the police on the arrests and not on words spoken by individual officers and u cant prove that thely were actually said.
