World-renowned Muslim cleric and Mufti of Zimbabwe Sheikh Ismail Musa Menk has called upon Muslims to shun any form of violence.  According to Menk, violence in all forms including war hampers development.    

He also notes that violence by Muslims directed towards none Muslims isn’t permissible and a resulting of misinterpreting scriptures.  Mufti Menk notes that is a misunderstanding from some Muslims to hurt other people, saying Allah couldn’t have created people with different beliefs.  

Menk, who addressed thousands of people at Mandela international Stadium on the last day of his Building bridges tour in Uganda on Sunday, said all people should be respected for the mere fact that they are humans, saying humanity ought to take centre stage in all human endeavours.
