A sector of angry Islamic community have staged protests which are aimed at restoration of an Islamic Billboard in Blantyre which was removed by the Blantyre City Council (BCC).
The said Billboard was removed following a complaint through a letter from the Christian community which claimed that the message on the bill board was attacking the Christians faith.
In an interview with Akometsi, leader of the group known as Concerned Muslims, Ousman Kennedy said they will hold peaceful protests in Mangochi and accross all the cities in the country after the BCC failed to adhere to their 7 day altimatum to erect the demolished Billboard.
“We will demonstrate because the Blantyre City council removed our Billboard, it was removed at night without our concern, we as Muslims in the country we are angry with the idea and we believe the conduct by the council was done with biasness and we are demanding the restoration of the Billboard at Maselema failing which we will be demonstrating until our demands are met,” said Kennedy
The demonstrations are scheduled to take place on Friday, 14th August this year from 1:30 pm.
The protests will take place in Lilongwe, Blantyre, Zomba, Mzuzu and Mangochi.
