GES should implement rules to forestall discrimination in schools – Muntaka

Hon.Muntaka Mubarak,MP for Asawaase

The Muslim Caucus in Parliament has required the authorization of decides that will address victimization understudies based on religion in Senior High Schools.

An individual from the council, Muntaka Mubarak on Eyewitness News, said the authorization of such laws by the Ghana Education Service (GES) will permit understudies to rehearse their religion without being oppressed.

“We are worried about the sheer disregard to the concerns of others. We are worried about all the efforts we have made and the assurance by the presiding bishop. We are shocked. The statement they have issued has really sent a shock to us, and we believe that GES has to enforce the rules because failure to enforce the rules means everybody will have to do his own thing and I do not think that will augur well for our co-existence and unity as a country.”

Wesley Girls’ High School has been censured for keeping a Muslim understudy from fasting during the progressing Ramadan.

The Methodist Church Ghana has additionally upheld the school’s position, saying it “can’t consent to the one-sided mandate gave by the Ghana Education Service.”

The Asawase MP said such advancements may prompt the presentation of sharia law in Islamic schools if the GES neglects to act.

“If GES fails [to enforce laws], they will be setting another bad precedent. I can bet you most of the Islamic schools will begin to have sharia as their rules. I think that GES must stand its grounds and enforce its rules.”

The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) of Wesley Girls’ High School in Cape Coast has likewise advocated the school’s choice.
