“We are very sorry, and on behalf of all the entire worshippers at Bashariya
Mosque, we hereby apologized to you Sir for the unfortunate incident
which occurred past Friday Juma Prayers” Bashariya Imam said.
Speaking to Vice President Dr. Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh today Tuesday 29th October, 2019, the Imam of Bashariya Masjid Sheikh Abu Bakarr Kamara after apologizing to VP Juldeh Jalloh said that they have learned a lot from the incident and really regret all what happened on that day.
The Imam condemned the act and begs the Hon. Vice President to forgive them. “We are realy sorry for what happened, Sir.
We promise that such incident will never happen again,” Bashariya Imam noted.
Addressing the Bashariya people, Vice President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, Dr Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh said that the incident was very
unfortunate. He stressed that he does not need to give any prior notification should he wish to pray as a Muslim.
The VP intimated that although protocol demands that he informs mosques authorities of his intention to prayer with them, his reason for unannounced visits is to avoid the possibility of interrupting the proceedings of Jamaat prayers around him, adding that he wants to come as a normal worshiper and observe his prayers like any other devout Muslim.
He noted that the country has religious tolerance and that his boss
President Bio always preaches it. He assured that the New Direction
government is desirous of continuing with that trajectory in the country.
He revealed that the New Direction government is doing its utmost to
support the religious bodies in the country and that their aim is to
enhance the prevalence of peace and tranquility in the country.
