Chief Imam Schools Pro-LGBTQ+ Advocates; Supports Anti-Gay Bill



The National Chief Imam Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu has backed the passage of the anti-LGBTQ+ bill.

Addressing the press following claims by the pro-LGBTQ+ group that Ghana is a secular and it was worrying that religion was largely being used as a basis to initiate legislation that infringes on rights of minorities, Sheikh Sharubutu noted that the secular nature of Ghana needs to be viewed within a context.

“…there has been the claim that Ghana is a secular country and therefore religious views/beliefs should not be imposed on Ghanaians,” the statement said.

“To consider secularism synonymous with Godlessness is conceptually incorrect. Secularism is the practice in governance where no one religion is made dominant to the exclusion of others.”

It continued to explain the extent to which religion permeates in the national life. “Contrary to being considered Godless, Ghana is a secular state with a deep sense of God.

“Our sense of God is expressed succinctly in a number of our national symbols i.e. the national anthem, the national pledge, oath of office and introduction to the constitution of Ghana,” it added.
