The Muslim Council has urged a national support for the president.
American progressive love to harp on Uganda's anti-gay legislation while paying very little attention to Muslim Gambia whose rhetoric is just as bad, never mind Iran or Pakistan. For the same reason, progs focused on Nigeria recently while overlooking the fact that the push for anti-gay measures came from Muslims.
(Ironically, Obama Inc. and progs had insisted that President Goodluck Jonathan needed to fight terrorism by giving Muslims more of a role. And then they got what they wanted.)
Uganda Muslims have welcomed the decision of President Yoweri Museveni to back an anti-gay bill that imposes life sentences for some homosexual acts, risking ties between western donors and the east African country.
“It takes a courageous leader to defy all the western powers who have gone as far a threatening to cut off aid to Uganda incase the president signs the anti-gay bill," said Hajji Nsereko Mutumba, the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council (UMSC) Public Relations Officer, in statement cited on Wednesday, February 19.
“I would like to commend President Museveni for his decision to sign the anti-gay bill," Mutumba said.
Appreciating Museveni's decision, the Muslim Council has urged a national support for the president.
It is now the duty of all Ugandans to rally behind the President because “the coming days, weeks, months and years may not be easy for the country," UMSC's Public Relations Officer urged.
Look for Western progressives to ignore this while they continue lambasting Uganda, while ignoring the fact that the most dangerous countries in the world for homosexuals are Muslim countries.
