On the eve of the elections Moulana Ravat of Radio Islam lambasted AL JAMA-AH for getting dissenting Mufti’s to unban voting in South Africa. “How can you reach accords with Mufti’s that ban eating Sanha certified chickens.” This he did in the same week that his Mufti Bam met the dissenting Muftis twice in conciliatory efforts supported by AL JAMA-AH . Rather unprofessional for a radio presenter also flouting ICASA regulations. Then after the poll closed Moulana Bobo(spelling ?) also of the hostile Radio Islam community radio station lambasted AL JAMA-AH for wasting R600 000 of the community’s money by contesting the elections as if the community in away contributed to the deposits. He is under investigation by ICASA for incitement unless he apologises.
Their other Moulanas in their wider camp went on the rampage on social media to say the Party was owned by Imam Rashid Omar of the Claremont Main Road Mosque, further that he headed up an Iranian business consortium in South Africa who funded the Party and further that AL JAMA-AH was a Shia Party. Nothing can be further from the truth. AL JAMA-AH’S Party leader is a trustee of the Majlisush Shura Al Islami whose views on Shiasm is well know. For his membership with Shura Ganief Hendricks was denied a visa by Iranian Embassy.
