I understand and the question that has been raised by our Muslim brothers and sisters are a Legitimate question, and with in their Constitutional l right.<quoted text> I agree with your assessment, brother. Ethiopian Muslims as well as Christians should reject any type of extremism from the outside world, and both should refrain from inflammatory comments that will cultivate resentment between the two. We have more to gain from being able to live in peace as one rather than to succumb to outside influences.
Misinformation about the demands of Ethiopian Muslims is the major problem right now. The demand of Ethiopian Muslims is crystal clear. Let's elect our own leaders, the government should stay out of religion affairs and the government should refrain from imposing its own preferred version of Islam in Ethiopia. Do you see any extremism in that request? Aren't those rights the same rights that our Christian fellow compatriots deserve? Don't you want to elect your own Patriarch? Don't you want to see the government stop meddling in your religious affairs? Would you keep quite if the government promotes Catholic Christianity in the expense of Ethiopian Ortodox faith?
However, I would also like to add that, you may want to review the video I posted earlier. Despite all our agreement or disagreement in opinion,the rise of Muslim extremism in Ethiopia today is Undeniable.there has been several indication that might possibly lead Ethiopia in critical religious conflict. However, I would like to underline there are opportunity to learn the disadvantages of extremism . We need to see and learn from those countries that are diminish by adapting extremism ideas.
