A member of the Islamic Concern Cassim Anaffi told the www.malawimuslims website the boys were found at Plantation House in Blantyre  shooting a video for their new song titled Wa Lahi and according to him, the song is not Islamic and therefore cannot allow people to abuse the name of Allah, without a clear knowledge of  the meaning of the sacred names of Allah.

“I got a call from the vice chairperson of Islamic Concern that there were boys at Plantation House who were shooting a video clad in Islamic attire but what they were singing was not Islamic in nature.

“So we rushed there and asked them to stop and come with us to Quran House to explain the details of their song,” said Anaffi

Anaffi further confirmed having confiscated the materials until their parents come to Quran house to confirm that indeed their children were Muslims since they failed to even recite Surat Fateha during the interrogation.

“Our main concern is the use of the names of Allah and His Prophet,” Anaffi explained, “These names are very sacred and one cannot just start singing them anyhow.”

The artists, Chifundo Malenga 19, Alex Chimasula 16 and Yusuf Lika 19 hail from Machinjiri in the City of Blantyre. The boys said that they just use some Islamic names and arabic words which are regularly used by the religion of Islam, although they do not sing nasheed songs.

The boys however said that they are Muslims but have never attended any madressa and therefore lacks any knowledge of Islamic etiquette.

The confiscated items include a video camera, music player and clothes. They are being kept at Quran House in Blantyre.

Malawi is a Christian Country and not Islamic State and it is unfortunate that we have these ill informed moslems. We chose multi democracy and this provide freedom of speech and association. Your standard 3 Muluzi was the first president in a free Malawi and please ask him to educate you about democracy.

Malawi will not develop when we let these uneducated moslems to control our lives

These Muslims think they are closer to God than all non Muslims. Unfortunately you don’t know God but Mohammed.
