Ghanaians Must Be Proud of High Religious Tolerance – Minister

Dr Hafiz Bin Salih, Upper West Regional Minister has stated that one of the many things Ghana can be proud of is the high level of religious tolerance observed in the country.

He, therefore, urged Muslims to pick lessons from the Eid celebration and shun all indiscipline acts to give Islam the opportunity to play a complete role in the promotion of national unity.

Dr Bin Salih who stated this during the Eid’ ul Adha congregational prayers in Wa, noted that Islam instilled on its followers a sense of sacrifice that puts others and the nation first and this must be practicalities.

“Religion and for that matter, Islam has a role to play in the promotion of national unity, peaceful coexistence and as a conduit for promoting tolerance and self-restraint for the development of their society”, he said.

He said Eid was, therefore, an occasion for relationship building and hoped that all Muslims would pick up lessons from the celebration especially the deed of reaching out to the less privileged in society.
