Christians across the country have been called upon to always fight against any kind of terrorism and avoid involvement in any acts of human destruction.

The call was made yesterday by Dr Dennis Karamuzi the Head of the English Service at Regina Pacis Catholic church, during a prayer session in commemoration of the 9/11 terror attacks in the United States, which claimed the lives of over 2,700 people.

Speaking to The New Times shortly after the prayers, Dr Karamuzi said that the church organised the service to join the rest of the world in remembering those killed in the attacks.

“The main objective of this mass was to show our grief and sympathy as Christians over the killing of thousands of innocent people in the USA and to denounce the acts of terrorism that happens across the world,” Dr Karamuzi said.

He asked Christians in other parts of the world to continue denouncing terrorism and related crimes across the world, underlining that religious leaders have a role to play in ensuring that these acts stop.

He said that their church would continue sensitising its members to be aware of such acts and avoid involvement in such inhumane acts.

Joseph Tuyisenge, a worshipper at the church said: “I encourage my fellow Christians in the country and across the world to continue fighting all sorts of terrorism because it’s against humanity and also hampers any kind of development worldwide.”

He asked clerics to intensify their efforts in teaching people about Christianity saying that this would enable them to love one another irrespective of their religious affiliation and reduce cases of terrorism in the world.
