Mutharika made the remarks Sunday afternoon at Sanjika Palace in Blantyre when he hosted a delegation from the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM).

The President stressed the importance of joint efforts from stakeholders, including the faith community, in uniting the nation.

“The meeting that am having today is among series of meetings that I have been conducting in the past. Basically with the Muslim community today we are discussing various issues like floods which the country is facing right now.

“We discussed issues to do with economy and how the Muslim community and government can work together to develop the country,” said Mutharika.

The Malawi leader also  emphasized on the need for Malawi to maintain her integrity. He called for tolerance among Malawians.

Spokesperson for the Muslim Association of Malawi, Sheikh Dinala Chabulika hailed President Mutharika for engaging various groups on matters of national importance.

“We discussed a number of issues with the president. First we wanted to congratulate him for being elected president of Malawi since this is our first time to meet him.

“Secondly we wanted to inform the President how MAM is progressing and that also to ensure the head of state that as a Muslim body we support the government of the day.

“MAM has assured the president that it will continue working with government in all projects including assisting the flood victims in affected area,” said Chabulika.

    ISLAM the only truth and light in the world, I like it and will die for it.

    There is no religion that kills people but a particular group just like christians of CAR who are killing and eating muslims right now. This goes to mbuli zakumalawi who are aiming at turnishing Islamic image. Boko Haram is not Islam even the name can suggest (western education not allowed). why dont you denounce CAR christians who are killing many Muslims? Israel the murders but no any single comment. mukakhuta mbatata basi zonena zake zachisilam osamakangonyambita maliseche azimayi uko monga mmene azibusa anu akuchitila bwanji.

    German Muslim scholar replies on TERRORISM … I liked the answer of this German Muslim scholar when he was asked about terrorism and Islam : He said : Who started the first world war? not Muslims ? Who started the second world war ? not Muslims ? Who killed about 20 millions of Aborigines in Australia ? not Muslims ?? Who sent the nuclear bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki ? not Muslims ?? killed more than 100 millions of Indians in North America ? not Muslims ?? Who killed more than 50 millions of Indians in south America ? not Muslims ?? Who took about 180 millions of African people as slaves and 88% of them died and were thrown in Atlantic ocean ? not Muslims ?? No , NOT Muslims!!! First of all, You have to define terrorism properly… If a non-Muslim does something is crime. But if a Muslim commits the same..he is a terrorist… So first remove this double standard…then come to the point!!! , . . . . . I am proud to be a MUSLIM !!! ARE YOU??? SPREAD THIS MSG & DON’T BREAK THE CHAIN

      @chilungamo chimawawa
      what do you know. ? Moslems discussing federalism , for what ? This is shallow thinking at it’s best. Mukufuna za utsiluzo ndiwe ndi mbalame zinzako and not these guys and i don’t think your guess would be right. If you don’t mind, keep your dirt ass out of this issue. I rest my case
