“Mufti Exposes Alarming Judiciary Perception: Judges Linked to Gaining from Muslim Property Sales in Uganda”

Kayunga, Uganda – In a fervent address during the swearing-in ceremony of new Muslim leaders in Kayunga, the Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Mubajje, took a bold stand against the recent judicial ruling that may result in the sale of numerous Muslim Supreme Council properties to settle a hefty 19 billion shilling debt.

Expressing deep dissatisfaction with the judiciary’s decision, the Mufti accused the legal system of potentially jeopardizing significant religious assets. The ruling, which could have far-reaching consequences for the Muslim community, has stirred controversy and dismay among its members.

Adding fuel to the fire, the Mufti also directed sharp criticism at the police for their heavy deployment at Old Kampala Mosque, aimed at thwarting a planned protest against the creditor in question, Hajji Abdu Kiyimba. Kiyimba, who had attended Friday prayers, found himself at the center of the debt dispute.

The Mufti alleged that the police played a role in facilitating Kiyimba’s entry into the mosque, characterizing it as a clandestine move to suppress dissent. The incident unfolded just two days after the authorities thwarted the planned demonstration.

The mosque debt row has become a focal point of tension within the Muslim community, prompting concerns about the potential sale of properties and its broader impact on religious institutions. The Mufti’s impassioned critique underscores the gravity of the situation and signals a widening divide between the Muslim leadership and the legal and law enforcement authorities.

As the controversy continues to unfold, the Muslim community anxiously awaits further developments, uncertain about the fate of their cherished properties and the potential repercussions on their religious institutions.
