KAMPALA —Muslims on Twitter have dismissed President Yoweri Museveni’s Eid Al adha message, asking his administration to stop linking murders to Muslims.

The President in his message called on all believers to emulate Prophet Ibrahim’s example of total devotion and submission to the will of Allah, also reminding them to celebrate responsibly.

“I join the Moslem Community in Uganda and across the world in the celebration of Eid al- Adha or the Festival of the Sacrifice. This is the day when our Moslem brothers and sisters commemorate Prophet Ibrahim’s portrayal of total faith and obedience to Allah when he accepted to sacrifice his only child, Ismail,” he said in a message to Ugandans.

Some Twitter users immediately accused the President of double standards citing his administration’s alleged continued linking of their religion to murders in the country.

“That’s double standard of you Mr Museveni especially after criminalising Moslems in Uganda for so long linking them to regime inner job murders. Stop linking murders to Muslims,” a one Trent M wrote.

“H.E @KagutaMuseveni, kindly release the tortured colleagues in Gen.Katumba’s attempted assassination coz the culprits are already with police,” a kne Ali Lusiba wrote.

“As many Muslims continue being persecuted. Tolina kyotugamba,” Nasser Kaaya wrote.

“We should celebrate this day by freeing all innocent Muslims brothers who are arrested daily on offenses we all know they never committed”.

Allan Ijuka: “I wish all the Muslims incarcerated in prisons as suspects in accordance to all recent murder related cases are given justice and set free if innocent”.
