Muslims: No terrorists here

We don’t harbour terrorists, forcibly convert anybody or pose a threat to use of the Lord’s Prayer and religious freedom in schools.

Two prominent members of the local Muslim community, Suleiman Bulbulia and Sabir Nakhuda, gave Barbadians these assurances yesterday on the Sunday Brass Tacks call-in programme on Starcom Network’s VOB 92.9.

Bulbulia said Islam did not preach violence or terrorism and groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS, though claiming Muslim roots, operated outside the teachings of Islam.

“I want to assure Barbadians – and I know this is one of the things that have come up over the week, this whole issue of whether or not we have this type of people here,” Bulbulia said.

“We do not have that thinking or that ideology here whatsoever. Our scholars here in our island have constantly spoken about this in our mosque.” (TY)
