I didn’t invite Pakistani preachers – Chief Imam


The national chief Imam Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu has categorically stated his office has nothing to do with the over 13 arrested Pakistani nationals, claiming to be preachers in Ghana.

The Pakistanis were arrested at Assin Fosu in the Central region Thursday upon suspicion they were engaging in extremist activities. They have, however, denied such claims, insisting they are Ahmadiyya Muslim Missionaries.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana has distanced itself from their activities with a section of the media alleging the foreigners are in the country under the aegis of the Chief Imam.

“It is not true that the people are in the country at the invitation of the National Chief Imam or at the expense of the National Chief Imam,” the spokesperson for the Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw said.

  1. Surprising the Ahmadija from almost a century is present in Ghana and serving the nation. How come such allegation can be levied on this group. Chief Imam also denies it. However the answer is obvious from the statement of office of Chief Imam. There are certain tablighi groups in Pakistan who keep on visiting various countries just to enhance the spiritual aspects of Muslims. Most probably these persons belong to such group. After investigation all will be clear. However a dent has been caused to peaceful ahmadija muslim mission Ghana and it needs damage control.

      • In pictures one can see just oldies. God knows what for these oldies landed in Ghana and posed to be Ahmadiyya missionaries.

      • But are they from our Jama’at in the first place or are they impersonating as Ahmadies? Hence my contention that their presence in Ghana is suspicious, especially if it turns out that they are not Ahmadies.

        Then, what are they doing there posing as Ahmadies? Probably to make trouble and fitna among the locals…
