Muslim Delegates Want Proposition 24 Deleted
By Solomon N Giddings, LINA Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, April 2 (LINA) – Muslim delegates at the ongoing Constitutional Review Conference in Gbarnga are calling for the removal of proposition 24 which is calling for the return of Liberia to a Christian state.

The delegates on Wednesday gathered in huge numbers to protest against the proposition, claiming that such proposition is anti-democratic because it is
targeting one group of people and therefore should be omitted.

They carried placards with the inscriptions “one who uses gun to settle political issues can also use guns to settle religious issues” and “No to Christian state and yes to secular state.”

The agitating group believes that Liberia is for all and as such the Constitution of Liberia should seek the interest of all its citizens.

As the result of the protest, the conference came to a momentary standstill, but some members of the National Traditional Council of Liberia and other stakeholders intervened and held series of meetings with the aggrieved party to bring the situation under control.
