Chief Imam Spokesperson chides media over WhatsApp call-to-prayers saga; says Minister misquoted

Spokesperson of the National Chief Imam, Sheihk Aremeyaw Shaibu

The Spokesperson of the National Chief Imam, Sheihk Aremeyaw Shaibu, has taken a swipe at the media for taking Minister for Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation out of context when he suggested Muslims should resort to phones to call-for-prayers.

Professor Kwabena Frimpong Boateng was reported to have called upon Muslim leaders to consider using phone calls or text message to call their members to worship instead of using the megaphones.

According to the reports, the minister said the use of mobile phones will help reduce noise pollution in the country.

But speaking on 3FM’s Sunrise, Sheikh Aremeyaw said the minister was misquoted and such action by the media has created some form of bitterness amongst the Muslim populace.

He called on the National Peace Council and National Security to act swiftly to avoid any mayhem.
