Tabliq leader parades former rebels

Meanwhile, the leader of the Tabliq sect in Uganda has paraded suspected rebels during prayers to mark the month of Ramadan, the 'New Vision' reported. Sheikh Suleiman Kakeeto displayed seven former rebel suspects at the Nakasero Mosque and urged Muslims to desist from engaging in rebel activities. "The people before you...were misled to the bush by people with selfish interests to join rebel activities," he told worshippers.
"They need help, they are unemployed..." He told the suspects they were free to interact with the Tabliq community and urged them not to return to the bush.
