Demanding Justice: Muslim Leaders in Iganga Speak Out Against Unjust Arrests

In a powerful declaration, Muslim leaders in Iganga are calling on the government for an apology, citing frequent unjust arrests of Muslims by security personnel without proper investigations.

Hajji Abubaker Walubi, the NRM chairman for Iganga, addressed thousands of Muslims gathered for Idd el fitri prayers at Iganga municipal primary school. He revealed a troubling pattern of arrests, particularly during Ramadan, where Muslims from Iganga district are detained on charges of terrorism or collaborating with ADF rebels, without substantiated evidence.

Walubi highlighted the fear gripping the community, with many forced to hide during the day, only venturing out at night. He specifically cited the case of Sheikh Mohamed Affan, detained at Maga Maga barracks in Jinja, urging for his release. Walubi expressed dismay at the treatment of Affan and others, recounting instances where they were coerced into dancing and singing by intelligence officers, under false accusations.

The alarming trend extends beyond unjust arrests. Municipal Khadi Sheikh Khalid Babugge raised concerns about numerous court cases concerning land donated to Muslims for mosque construction, with individuals claiming to be relatives of former owners. He cautioned against political maneuvers tarnishing reputations, emphasizing the risk of legal action.

Despite these challenges, thousands of Muslims attended the Idd el fitri prayers led by district Khadi Iganga Sheikh Sinani Muwanika. Muwanika urged for continued peace post-Ramadan, discouraging behaviors contrary to Islamic teachings such as drunkenness and adultery.

The calls for justice resonate deeply within the Iganga Muslim community, emphasizing the need for accountability and fairness in law enforcement and land disputes
