The Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) will annually commemorate Muslim Martyrs Week to remind Muslims of their past and promote tolerance, announced Mufti Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje on Monday.

Sheikh Mubaje emphasized the significance of the sacrifices made by the Muslim Martyrs, stating, “They acted within their limited knowledge and gave up their lives standing for what they believed in.”

His remarks were made during the commemoration of Muslim Martyrs Day at the UMSC headquarters, where he highlighted the lack of awareness among the younger generation regarding the historical struggles endured by their forefathers due to Islam.

“We must ensure that our history is not forgotten to prevent repeating past mistakes,” he emphasized, noting that some young Muslims mistakenly perceive Islam as a domain where they can act without accountability.

Sheikh Mubaje stressed the importance of responsible behavior among Muslims, considering their minority status in Uganda. Reflecting on his 24 years of leadership, he highlighted the challenges faced and the UMSC’s commitment to fostering unity and development.

“We have now initiated efforts to remember our colleagues who served Islam, aiming to avoid their mistakes and consolidate their achievements,” he added.

Reflecting on the Muslim Martyrs, Sheikh Mubaje noted their obedience and adherence to the truth, akin to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad.

Regarding the theme of the day, “Tolerance: A Solution to Bigotry,” the Mufti attributed the martyrdom of the Muslim Martyrs to ignorance, emphasizing the importance of knowledge in promoting tolerance.

“Ignorance is a disease,” he stated, highlighting the need for continuous learning and seeking knowledge to combat bigotry and ignorance.

Earlier in his presentation, Dr. Asadu Ssentongo Lutale underscored the importance of recognizing the Martyrs’ challenges and emphasized the need for Muslims to remain committed, honest, and true to themselves.

He highlighted the absence of knowledge as a contributing factor to bigotry and martyrdom, advocating for a continued pursuit of education.
