Tension blows in Ashanti Regional Muslim Community over Mahama

It appears there is uneasiness among the Muslim community in the Ashanti Region following unsubstantiated claims that the former President, John Mahama recently entered mosques with his sandals, something considered unIslamic and disrespectful to Muslims.

The Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun, made the allegation against the former President.

The allegation was later countered with photos and videos of Mahama’s visit to the mosque in October by pro-NDC activists.

This late compelled some elders and clergy from the Muslim community in the Ashanti Region to render an unqualified apology to Mr. John Mahama, NDC on behalf of the Regional Chief
Imam, Sheikh Abdul Mumin Haroun.

A delegation paid a visit to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) regional headquarters to apologize.

“We are here because of recent developments concerning our regional Chief Imam, what happened was not in a good state, and so we are here to beg the NDC and the former president to let go of the matter,” a representative of the delegation said.

Sheikh Haroun, however, did not join the delegation, raising political eyebrows.
