State Vice President Saulos Chilima has urged Malawians to peacefully co-exist and enjoy their freedom of worship which he said can not be interfered with by anyone.
Chilima said this when he attended prayers marking the celebration of Eid al-Fitr (the feast of breaking the Fast) in Salima on Sunday under the invitation of the Muslim Community in the district.
Eid al-Fitr celebrates the end of the daily fasting through the holy month of Ramadan.
Before attending the main function at Salima Primary School, Chilima, who is also running mate to Dr. Lazarus Chakwera in the fresh elections, visited Quadria Muslim Association of Malawi Salima offices where he donated food stuffs to the eldery and held a duscussion with them while sitting on the floor.
Several speakers at the function rebuked politicians who are advancing the religion card, saying it is not true that the leadership of Chakwera and Chilima will ban Islam.
