Tawheed Islamic Foundation will tomorrow hold a public lecture at Mzuzu University (Mzuni) to disassociate Islam from terrorism.
This is a second talk in a series launched at the University of Malawi’s Polytechnic in Blantyre recently.
The main speaker at the Mzuzu debate is the foundation’s Sheikh Umar Matola, who spoke on ‘why Muslims should never have to apologise for terrorism’ during the inaugural talk.
A statement issued by the foundation shows his lecture, themed ‘Solidarity against the Threat of Terrorism’, will start at 9 am.
At the Polytechnic, he bemoaned myths that blame Islam for terrorist attacks though some acts of terror are caused by people from other religious backgrounds.
Said Matola: “They abuse Islam by killing innocent souls in the name of Islam and Jihad; forming Arabic terms Hezbollah, Hizb ut-Tahrir, Boko Haram.
“When non-Muslims hear the sound of a gunshot or bank robbery, xenophobia, war in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Yemen, they say Islam is the source of all that.”
