Kawempe South MP Hon. Mubarak Munyagwa is accusing government of using terrorism as an excuse to destroy the Muslim community in the country.
“There is nothing like radicalisation of Muslims. This is an excuse used by the government to kill Muslims in this country,” Munyagwa told NBS television on Monday.
“They [government] say that there were sheikhs teaching children to be radical. That is wrong. They just wanted to grab Muslim land.”
He says that the person who sold Usafi land wrongly claims that the land the mosque sits on is his.
“They used UPDF to kill innocent lives.”
Munyagwa was responding to the Saturday raid on Usafi mosque in Kampala by security agencies where 18 women were rescued, 94 children rescued and 36 suspects arrested.
In the operation, two suspects were killed as they attacked and severely injured one of the security officers.
