some Muslims in second cycle institutions especially, are forced to attend church services and join other practices prohibited by their religion.
There have been several appeals to people in Authority, including one to the late President John Evans Attah Mills and current Vice President, Kwesi Amissah Arthur, against such practices, but with no success.
Executive Director of the United Muslim Christian Forum, Alhaji Ahmed Nii Nortey believes “that Muslim themselves have been romanticising this issue for far too long,” adding, “I think it’s about time that the Muslim leadership and any Muslim took it upon himself to go to court and clearly seek an interpretation of the meaning of what the freedom of religion and worship mean.”
“If the Constitution of the Republic of Ghana, which is the supreme law is telling me that I can manifest my religion, then it means I have every right as a Muslim lady to wear my hijab, and nobody should cause any impediment in my way,” Alhaji Nortey added.
He cautioned that the raging matter when not solve in time can escalate because, “the absence of war doesn’t mean there is peace. There will not be peace when people feel slighted, discriminated against or insulted.”
