ASJA march for peace

News day / President General of the Anjuman Sunnat ul Jamaat Association (ASJA), Yacoob Ali, who led the march, said: “Today we must focus on the importance of unity in all jamaats and that the youths play an integral role in the masjids. It is time to encourage the young ones back into youth groups and other fundamental activities.” Organised by Region A of the ASJA and their members of the Tacarigua Jammat, the peaceful procession began at 7:30 am yesterday at the Tacarigua masjid.

Participants walked along Eastern Main Road in Tacarigua Main Road ending their march for peace at the Eddie Hart Savannah.

At the end of the walk, the men, women and children, many clad in blue, listened to speeches from the leaders of their respective groups, including Ali, former senator Raziah Ahmed, former chairman of the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation Nafeesa Mohammed and ASJA’s Youth Arm representative, Imam Javeed Hosein.

The march was aimed at encouraging all faiths to come together and live as one brotherhood and sisterhood, to enjoin what is right and to forbid what is wrong.
