Call for South Africa Muslims to join Afghan war
Call for SA Muslims to join Afghan war
Posted Wed, 03 Oct 2001
A small Muslim organisation in Cape Town claims to be signing up young
Muslims to fight in Afghanistan.
Cape Talk quoted a spokesperson for Muslims Against Illegitimate Leaders
(Mail), as saying Mail was recruiting young Muslims outside mosques. Mail
spokesperson Abdhuraman Khan told the radio station that over 1 000 young
Muslim men with military training had volunteered to protect Muslims
living in Afghanistan with the backing of local businessmen.
However, the Muslim Judicial Council told Cape Talk that it was of the
view that taking up arms was not the solution.
The council was urging South African Muslims to pray for followers of
Islam in Afghanistan.
Muslim Judicial Council Director Sheikh Ebrahim Gabriels said Khan does
not represent the opinions and sentiments of many Muslims living in Cape
Afghanistan has called on all Muslims to help defend their country in the
event of an attack by the United States in retaliation for the September
11 attacks on New York and Washington.

"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was
not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not
speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the
Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for
me, and there was no one left to speak for me." - Pastor Martin Niemoller
