WAMY Distributes Koran and Islamic Textbooks In Uganda


A Ugandan news portal has reported that the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY) has donated 1,200 Korans and other textbooks worth sh18m to Islamic schools throughout the country. The report also stated that WAMY coordinator Sheik Ahmed Ssentogo, “cautioned head teachers against misusing the books.” Local media identify an individual by the same name as an Imam and a member of the Justice Forum political party who was running for parliament in 2005. U.S. government agencies and officials have argued that WAMY, in turn, has helped spread Islamic extremism around the world as well as sponsoring terrorism in places such as Bosnia, Israel, and India. The Muslim Brotherhood was instrumental in the founding of WAMY and the organization continue to play an important role in the global Muslim Brotherhood network. A previous post has reported on documents found in the home of a Muslim Brotherhood leader detailing a Muslim Brotherhood plan for expansion in Africa believed to date from 2000.
