Imams working to Stop Violence in the Home

Monday, June 18, 2007

During her recent visit to Kampala, Uganda, Meg met a group of Imams who have been trained to work on domestic violence issues in their communities. The Imams told Meg how they were seeking to change the culture that accepts this violence through education, information given during weekly and daily prayers, and by visits to families in their own homes.

They have produced literature that sets out what the Koran says about equality between men and women. They challenge the cultural attitudes that believe it is alright for a man to hit his wife.


Meg said:

“I was very impressed by the work the Imams are doing. They are clearly committed to reducing the incidence of domestic violence in the Muslim community in Kampala.”
