Police Ban Jinja Sect Fm Radio Broadcast

The Police in Jinja have banned a radio programme presented by controversial Christian Isa Masiya sect leader Besweri Kaswabuli, as angry Muslims threatened to retaliate for blasphemy.

The programme is aired every Sunday on Nile Broadcasting Service on 89.4 FM.

Sections of the Muslim community in Jinja and neighbouring areas had expressed bitterness with Kaswabuli’s remarks about Prophet Muhammad, circumcision and other issues pertaining to Islamic religion, especially in the Holy month of Ramadan.

Some youth from major mosques in Jinja had mobilised themselves to attack the radio and stone Kaswabuli.

The District Police Commander, Anthony Emoding, said the Police directed the ban on orders of the Jinja district security committee headed by the Resident District Commissioner, pending investigations into the matter.

He said the programme had generated tension. Kaswabuli, whose name means to whip, had been using the programme to bash other faiths.

Last week, Busoga Muslim leaders urged their followers to shun Kaswabuli’s programme and directed their followers to boycott the radio and Muslim staff to to quit the radio.
