Chienda said involving people of other faith in various Islamic activities bridges the gap among them.
“As you know that teachers form a very important part of the society, they interact with our learners and among the learners are Muslims, so in this case they will be able to understand beliefs of their learners especially those who are Muslims”.
He added that it is the responsibility of IIB to give out the information to the people and promised to continue doing so.
“We only have the responsibility of spreading the information but only Allah guides to the right path those who He likes”.
One of the teachers at St Kizito Boys Primary School Nelie Anton Mhango commended IIB for organizing the function adding it has helped to clear out misconceptions that they had on Islam.
