Malawi Muslim Women Call for Support from Men

Dr. Cassim Chilumpha

Former vice president of the Republic of Malawi Dr. Cassim Chilumpha on Saturday advised Muslim women in the Country  not to be worried with current low turn up of men in their activities saying this is happening due to some other factors.

Women have been expressing concern over lack of support from Muslim men especially in the fight against HIV/AIDS and other important activities.   Chilumpha dismissed the claims saying Muslim men are playing a major role towards the development of women in the Country.

“We are helping these women in different ways. For example, they had their own Ijtmah here in Mangochi [in August] where men also played a major role in providing transport and other forms of logistical support and I believe that we will continue to assist them until their needs are fulfilled,” Chilumpha told Malawi Muslim Official Website.

Muslim Women Organisation (MWO), formed in 1986, has been operating without an office and the former Veep said Muslim men will look into that once other things have been sorted out.

“We will try to help them to have an office because other projects we had, are to be completed soon and from there, I think we will be able to do that. It is not a thing that they should be worried about,” pledged the law expert cum politician.

“There is a lot of work which is being done by different organizations [in the Country].  It is true it might happen that other people are not involved but we can’t conclude that they don’t want to help. It just shows that the work that Muslims are doing is quite huge.” He added.
