Mozambique ready to take “extraordinary measures” to secure gas fields - President tells ...
President of Mozambique Filipe Nyusi called on the Muslim community to engage with determination in the transformation of the Peace and Reconciliation Agreement signed in Maputo into concrete actions for a true reconciliation between Mozambicans.
The head of state launched the appeal yesterday in Nampula in his message to Muslims on the occasion of the Eid-Al-Adha, which marks the start of year 1440 of the Islamic calendar.
Filipe Nyusi said that this celebration should serve as inspiration for the permanent search for the moral and universal values which identify Mozambicans as human beings, including those of friendship, compassion, love and fraternity.
“History teaches us that the greatest victories are the result of great sacrifices accompanied by determination, persistence and with a strong belief in the divine word,” the head of state said, reiterating his call to the Islamic community to promote national reconciliation.
Nyusi also urged Muslims to continue to pray for the country to be rid of the faceless evildoers who terrorise and murder the people in Cabo Delgado province, using the Muslim religion to confuse the Mozambican people.
“Islam teaches us forgiveness, with no hatred between us, and no one who is more and no one who is less. We do not practice discrimination in this country,” the president, for whom the Mozambicans are one indivisible people, said.
Speaking in an election year, the head of state called for this moment not to be used as a pretext for endangering peace in Mozambique, and for Muslims to continue to pray for the peace, harmony, tranquillity and progress of Mozambique and to commit to making a positive contribution to the October 15 elections running smoothly.
During the ceremony, Sheik Hassan Arbi called on all Mozambicans to work for the promotion of peace, prioritising dialogue between all society stakeholders.
“The relationship between parents and children, husbands and wives, or siblings is often damaged by lack of dialogue. We all have to live in dialogue,” Sheik Arbi recommended, using a saying that “the best person is the one who is best for others.”
The head of state took the opportunity to thank Muslims for their support in helping those affected by Cyclones Idai and Kenneth, which struck the central and northern regions of the country respectively.Source: Noticias
