A prominent scholar Imam has warned Gambian authorities to desist from granting a TV license to the Ahmadis if they continue to call themselves Muslims, saying they are not part of the Islamic Ummah. Pressure is being placed on the country’s public regulatory body since they received application from the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, requesting permit to operate a private TV.

“The Ahmadis have to stop making false claims about their true identity. They cannot apply a TV license on the basis they are Muslims,” Imam Ratib Muhammad Al Amin Drammeh told The Associated Press news agency this reporter in an exclusive interview.

The Ahmadis have been keeping a low profile since they have launched their TV bid, making it very clear they are waiting for Gambia Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA) to make their decision based on the legal requirements. But the Imam of Sulaiman Mosque in Dippakunda, about 8 kilometers from the capital city, has used his last Friday sermon to go tough on the Muslim minority. In the said sermon, which was delivered on March 2nd, he described the Ahmadis as ‘Kafir and enemies of Islam.’
