    End discrimination against the differently-abled, say Imams

    Azlan Othman

    Imams called for an end to discrimination to differently-abled persons, noting that Islam is a religion of mercy that transcends boundaries of lineage, skin colour, race and position in yesterday’s Friday sermon.

    Islam also promotes equal rights between normal and differently-abled persons, said Imams.

    “We need to be aware and more sensitive to the challenges faced by the differently-abled and eliminate any discrimination against them,” said the Imams, Imams said that every level of society has a responsibility and role to protect differently-abled individuals while also honouring their contributions.

    Imams noted that the nation celebrates International Day of Persons with Disabilities every December 3, as a sign of appreciation for initiatives to help and develop the differently-abled as well as their achievements and contributions to the country.
