Stop Criminalizing Muslims and Killing Suspects, FDC Speaks out


The opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has come out cautioning Police and other security agencies against continued killing of suspects and criminalizing Muslims whenever the country faces terrorist acts.

Addressing journalists at FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi, the party Spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda said as FDC, they condemn the killing of suspects by Police or any other security agency.

Ssemujju said that as a party, they cannot affirm Sheik Kilevu’s innocence or guilt, but condemn his murder narrating that it’s not what the Constitution provides.

He said the government is supposed to present evidence before a special court, have the suspects sentenced to death and sign a certificate to have them hanged.

FDC also cautioned the government against criminalizing Muslims and profiling.

Ssemujju said “Mosques are being declared radicalization centers by Museveni and security; we fear they may begin invading mosques while people are in prayers”.
