REF NO: AFED/RU/20 Date: September 7, 2020
It is with deep dismay that a fake statement was disseminated in social media under the reference of RUN/0028 on 21st August 2020, purported to have come from the Secretariat of the Federation of the Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaats of Africa.
The Africa Federation Secretariat wishes to inform our community members that such false and fake statements using the Africa Federation official Letterhead is illegal, immoral and may result in legal action taken against the culprit(s); should we decide to pursue this route.
The Chairman and the office bearers of Africa Federation are outraged with such malice and propaganda being used against the respected Vice Chairman of Africa Federation from Réunion and Chairman of UAKSIR, Alhaj Amine Nassor. Further, let it be known that the Chairman of Africa Federation has full and unreserved confidence in his Vice Chairman from Réunion, Alhaj Amine Nassor.
During these important days and nights of Muharram, our community members should indulge in the Azaa of Sayyid al-Shohadaa Aba Abdillah al-Hussain (‘a), the great Martyr of Karbala and to reflect on his mission. It is our duty to build a united and progressive community together.
We urge all our community members to avoid such deceitful actions which are forbidden in Islam and are harmful to our community at large.
With Salaams and Duas,
Hon. Secretary – Africa Federation
