Garisa Town MP Aden Duale has condemned the demolition of a Mosque in Kisumu.
The Mosque was demolished at 3 am on Saturday night by Kenya Railways.
He termed the act as immoral, anti-Islam and uncalled for.
“This Masjid was built in 1938 and was demolished at 3am by Kenya Railways. Under any circumstance, it is unconstitutional, affront to the freedom of worship and abuse to the Muslim Umma,” he said.
Duale said its forbidden to demolish houses of worship.
“I condemn Kenya Railways who acted against an existing court order to demolish the Mosque and residential houses. Leaving many innocent Kenyans homeless. Even in heinous regimes, none in the history has ever demolished houses of worship,” an angry Duale said.
He said as leaders, they will protect all houses of worship including those of other faiths.
The MP said Islam does not allow destruction of places of worship.
“And who are more unjust than those who prevent the name of Allah from being mentioned in His mosques and strive toward their destruction. It is not for them to enter them except in fear. For them in this world is disgrace, and they will have in the Hereafter a great punishment” ( 2:187)” he quoted the Quran.
