Muslim Association of Malawi backs community in Mangochi hijab gear wrangle

Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) say Muslims in Mangochi are justified to demand that their girls go to school putting on a hijab—a gear covering the head and the neck worn by Muslim women and girls in public places.

The Muslim community wants female Muslim faith learners to be  putting on a hijab

This follows disagreements which have gone violent between the Anglican church and the Muslim community at Mmanga schools in Mangochi over the Muslim gear.

Sheikh Dinala Chabulika, spokesperson of MAM,  said the Anglican management was wrong to bar Muslim students from wearing jihabs at the schools, saying this was religious intolerance.

He said there was need for the ministry of Education to intervene on the matter.

“It is also our wish that this impasse ends. However, we wonder why this is only the case at Mmanga. This should be done by all necessary stakeholders for tolerance and peace to prevail,” he said.

Public Affairs Committee publicist Father Peter Mulomole said his organization is ready to mediate on the matter, saying there was need for urgent need for dialogue between the warring parties.

The Muslim community demand that all school authorities should respect the Constitution and thus allow Muslim female students to put on hijab or dress Islamically in class or around the schools.

The conclusion of the matter is: chala chamwini sakandira pa nkholo. Anglican School, Anglican rules and beliefs; Muslim school, Islam rules and beliefs.

Just for your information my Muslim brethren, the niqab, hijab and galabiya are traditional Arab dress and not religious dress. Learn the origins of those properly – osamangopanga zinthu mwa umbuli.

This is uncalled for. tolerance does not means disorder, it means respecting others as they are in conformity with rules and regulations. Why is it that Moslem women in the army and Police do not wear their hijab? Why would the education system only tolerate Moslem learners to wear the hijab on school? Is Going to an Anglican school in your Hijab tolerance? Is that not an insult? Are we going to have all our country rules bent because of Islam? how will the country benefit from such a move? Can our Parliament deliberate on this and choose our country… Read more »

Musawalekerere asilamuwa what they want is fighting, they are known of disturbilizing communities every where around the world. they are typical of Bokoharam pls take necessary steps to frustrate their efforts else they take advantage of current political instability to satisfy their evil desires. They preach tolerance yet practice evil. Chabulika remove all you fellow muslims from Christian schools period.
