The National Peace Council has said it has observed reports of a Muslim understudy at the Wesley Girls’ High School who was supposedly kept from fasting in the continuous Ramadan which is being seen by Muslims.
The Council said likewise that its consideration has additionally been attracted to proclamations which have been given by the Ghana Education Service (GES), some polite society associations (CSOs) and the Methodist Church Ghana with respect to a similar issue.
“It is in the respect of the above, that the National Peace Council, calls on all Ghanaians, particularly, those who have been affected in any way by the events at the Wesley Girls’ High School, to exercise the greatest restraint and circumspection in their comments and pronouncements on the matter, as the National Peace Council initiates an intervention plan.
“Meanwhile, the Council respectfully reminds Ghanaians about how far we have come as a people by living together, even before independence.
“The Council acknowledges and reaffirms the initiatives already underway by the religious leaders to resolve the matter and encourages the leadership of the Christian and the Muslim communities to call on their followers to remain calm as efforts to build on the time-tested peaceful co-existence among Christians and Muslims are made by the relevant authorities.
“The Council concludes, by wishing all Muslims the blessings of God as they continue in the journey of Ramadan!” the council added.
Meanwhile the muslim caucus in parliament have met with authorities of the school in a bid to allow Muslim students practice their religion.
