Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Bagnya, Television presenter, host of IQRA on TV3 and public relations officer of the Madina Islamic Institue of Science and Technology in Accra has said that the relationship between Christians and Muslims here in Ghana is excellent and healthy.

The scholar revealed that Ghanaians coexist regardless of their beliefs. 

In Ghana for example, one can have Christians and Muslims existing in the same nuclear family consisting of father, mother and children “my sister could be a Christian, my brother could be a Muslim but we jell," he noted.

In an interview with Pulse Ghana, he stated that it has indeed become an example and prototype for other countries within the sub region to emulate Ghana. These cordial relationship that exist between Christians and Muslims in Ghana  cannot be said about countries like Nigeria, the Central African Republic  and Mali, where there has been reports of major violence between Christians and Muslims. There has been reports of Muslims burning down churches or attacking Christian communities and vice-versa, with this going on in the continent, Bagnya notes "Ours is so beautiful”.

“We have a National Peace Council  which consists of church leaders and Muslim leaders collaborating for the peace of Ghana and we have enjoyed this excellent co-existence,” he further added.

He describes that the “Chief Imam could have a programme and invite Christian leaders to come speak on them and vice versa.”

Meanwhile he added that he celebrated the Eid al Fitr graciously with his family, including  his beautiful daughter, mother and siblings and people around him. 

 “This year’s Ramadan, Muslims have a better understanding, [it] started same day and ended same day and that means there’s this unity which exist within us”.
