Moslems celebrate Idd
KIGALI - As hundreds of thousands of Rwandan Moslems celebrated the end of Ramadhan yesterday, their Mufti, Sheik Saleh Harelimana said that the country’s Moslems have a lot to thank God and government for, their lives having tremendously improved since the end of the 1994 genocide. Citing the fact that the country’s Moslem community so far has its own radio station and website while Moslems used to be discriminated against since colonial rule up to the collapse of a ‘discriminatory regime’ in 1994, Sheik Harerimana said that the people he represents have reasons to be thankful.
