Homosexuality is ‘Dirty’ – Chief Imam

gayThe Chief Imam of Takoradi, Alhaji Mohammed Awal, has warned all Muslims to stay away from homosexuality, describing the practice as “dirty” and “abominable.”

He urged Muslims that such “devilish” acts would attract the wrath of Allah.

He gave the advice when Muslim faithful gathered at the Takoradi Jubilee Park for open prayers to mark Eid-uI-Fitr after ending 30 days of fasting.

He said Ramadan is the period of fasting and giving of alms to people in the society and therefore urged Muslims to continue showing benevolence to all manner of people and abide by the teachings of Q’uran, in order to receive blessings from Allah.

Alhaji Awal also charged Muslims not to engage in corruption but should rather exhibit honesty and fairness.

He asked Muslims across the country to pray for the government and the peace of this country.

The Western Regional Minister, Paul Evans Aidoo, commended Muslims for successfully ending the fast and urged all religious bodies to partner government to accelerate the socio-economic development of the country.
