Muslim Council Chair Calls For God’s Intervention In Ebola Outbreak

By Calvin Brooks

MONROVIA, July 28 (LINA) - The Chairman of the Muslim Council of Liberia (MCL), Sheikh Kafumba Konneh, has called for God’s intervention for the Ebola epidemic to leave Liberia.

Chairman Konneh said it was unfortunate that Ebola is killing people in the face of the challenges the Government is facing to improve the living standard of Liberians.

The Muslim Council Chairman made the statement Monday at the Gurley Street Mosque as Muslims around the World celebrated the end of Ramadan.

He regretted that the international community and world leaders have closed their eyes on the situation confronting the Palestinian people as Israeli war planes bomb women and children.

He said Liberian Muslims are praying with them and hoped that their conflict would be resolved as soon as possible to prevent more people from dying and the destruction of properties in the Palestinian territory.

Meanwhile, the Grand Muft of the Gurley Street Mosque, Sheikh Abubaker Sumawore, is urging Liberians to abide by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare regulations to prevent the spread of Ebola.

Sheikh Sumawore indicated that it is critical for every Liberian to be concerned about the health problem that the country is going through and let God intervene.

He expressed gratitude to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for supporting the Muslim Community during the Holy Month of Ramadan and called on opposition politicians to work along with the Government to move the nation’s development agenda forward.
