Malawi Muslim women angry with NRB officials

704

Muslim women in Nkhotakota have accused national identity registration officers at Kayadzi primary centre in the district of forcing them to remove their headgear when processing the identity cards.

Malawi24 caught up with one of the women who expressed concern saying that the action is against National Registration Bureau (NRB) manual book that stipulates that Muslim women must not remove the headgear during the process.

The woman told this publication that the registration officers forced her to remove the whole headgear and when she asked them, they said that no one is allowed to do the process with the covering.

The 64-year-old woman said she tried to convince the officers but they still demanded that she should remove the headgear.

“I told them that I can’t remove my headgear for religious reasons. I am a Muslim and removing my headgear anyhow is unacceptable,” the woman who pleaded for anonymity told Malawi24.

NRB manual book on page 92 states that head coverings are not permitted except for religious reasons, but facial features from bottom of chin to top of forehead and both edges of face must be clearly shown.

The issue is different with women at Kayadzi primary school identity registration centre where they are told to remove the whole headgear if they want to have a national identity card.

The process is currently taking place in districts like Nkhotakota, Kasungu, Mchinji and Ntchisi.

According to National Registration Bureau, over 1 million people have been registered so far during the first phase of the process.

    Which ladies are in question here!?

  3. id its nt about face, as i knw, id its about ur name/number n finger print. ngakhale atajambulisa ndi musk i dont see any problem. its only tht boma la malawi liri mmanja mwa roman cothilic so when they making laws saganizila za anthu amipingo ina.

  6. So how do they take passport photos? However we live here on earth is what will determine where your eternity will be. Yes we all must dress modestly for the Lord not for religion. Putting on religious clothes and going to bomb a bus full of women and kids isn’t gonna take you anywhere. Sure they can show their faces for ID if not then the must kindly find a country where they can have no identity.

  7. KU UFUMU WA MULUNGU SAKUFUNA HEADGEAR,NATIONAL PROGRAMME IWO AKUYENERA KUVULA FOR EFFECTIVENESS.AKAVULA NDIYE KUTI AKUONEKA MALISECHE? YANKHO NDI AYI.

  12. Okay, let us imagine: akwanitsa kuvula the headgear, awajambula. Now kutsogolo kuno akamadzawonetsa Identity Card adzadzivulanso? Cos still more maso onkha ndi omwe adziwoneka pamene ID ikuwonetsa nkhope yonse. I think permanently angosiya kuvala the headgear until technology itafika level ina in Malawi. Just_my_thoughts

    • You are so stupid do you know what are you talking about or anything else to leave Christian and join Muslim its the same like coming out of light and follow the darkness open your eyes before it is too late

  25. There is no point that good people like us busy castigating each other on the issue of Identities. Everyone has got rights but rights without responsibilities is nothing. I truly believe that when these laws were made Muslim leaders were there and they all agreed to take part on the exercise that’s why their Muslim fellows went to places where the exercises are conducted. To the Muslims if at all your women take a bath with head gears, if they go to sleep with those gears then let them be given another option but if they at a certain occasion remove it let them also take it off atleast for few minutes when a photographer is taking photos. To those officers doing the job let them understand the Muslims and give them a female photographer in a private room and take photos. I believe that can work, and let all people know and understand that every religion has got its DOs and DONTS and kutukwanana apa kukungosonyeza kuti chi khilisitu kapena chisilamu chathu mchopanda pake. Tonse tikuyeneranso kudziwa kuti ko lembetsa za ma Identity si ku church or ku mosque ndi malo ena omwe malamulo ake ngosiyana ndi a zipembedzo dzathu. Let us understand each other and map way forward we are all Malawians despite different denominations and tribes. United we Stand divided we fall

  26. kkkk they are hiding something I think. always musilamu tsadzatheka akufuna malamulo a boma akhale achisilami they were suppose to have their own province to make their own rules you Muslims as long as you are in Malawi you have to do what the government is telling you to do if you don’t want then you are free to leave the country..

  27. Kkkkkkkk koma zinazi anaona kuti pojambulisa ID amatseka nkhope kkkkkk this really rediuculus women they can’t think themselves about this issue kkkkkk so stupid hey. Nkhadza zalowa kwa amai kochekera kwa amuna awo asaaaa apa ndayankhula without fear anyone yebo.

  28. Palibe Msilamu angapange usilu osiya kupempheza Mulungu atavala ndikumakapembeza munthu atavula. Yesu mukunenayo ndi mayi ake amkavala mmene timachitila asilamufe. Stop making nosense Yesu sananyamule cement kuti anthu azimulandila. We believe in all Messengers of God not you so called Jesus when he is actually Brian Deacon

  29. SONO NKHOPE MWA IKA APAZI NDIZA AMALAWI? BOMA LINAVOMELEZA KALE KUTI AZIJAMBULISA ATAVALA

    AMENE MUKUTI MBULI INU EVEN MSCE MULIBE. ASIYENI ASILAMU ANAZOLOWELA KUVALA, ACHRISTU YANU NDIYOONESA MALISECHE BASI SIMUNGAGWILIZANE NDI ANTHU OVALA MOZILEMEKEZA

  30. Take off yo masks that’s why you are terrorists, what is in your face to hide? Are you Ninjas? I always scare when I pass you Muslims women. I always think about de suicide bombers the wear.

  31. Ithink & believe God is going to forgive you according to your respecting,rather than nacked while you are going in the church,shame!

  32. Plz tell them to remove those gears we don’t want ISIS to use there ids we need there real faces.Even when they are sleeping they take those things off so why not during the documentation

  33. IF THE AIM OF THE POSTER WAS TO SEE HOW CHRITIANS HATE MOSLEMS THEN HE HAS SEEN FOR HIMSELF. SO NON-MOSLEMS ARE FIGHTING FOR MUSLEM’S RIGHTS, WHERE IS THIS HATRATE GOING TO TAKE US? AM SUPRISED TO SEE THE REAL ENEMIES BEHIND THE FRIENDS. SO SHOCKING TO SEE OUR LEADERS TECHING US HATE NOT UNITY AND DEVRLOPMENT, A LITTLE REMINDER ” EVEN AMERICA HAVE MOSLEMS TOO AND SO MALAWI MAY OR MAY NOT BY THE WILL OF GOD” REMAIN BLESSED ALL THE TIME AS YOU NOCK OFF FROM YOUR JOBS GOD LOVES US ALL IRRESPECTIVE OF SINS WE COMMIT. MAY HE CONTINUE DOING SO AMEN.

  34. Even those muslim women in saudi arabia have IDs but i have never seen any of them showing only the eyes.come on guys sereously?an ID photo with a hijab on….??thats funny

  35. Religion is the most dangerous thing that was ever created…..one needs to be very careful with it….or it will get u doomed. Thats y christianity is not one of them…the real christianity is not a religion.

  36. Sibwino Kumakhala Wanzeru Kuposa Lamulo.Ngati Lamulo Likuti Kubisa Nkhope Ayi Nvelani,Nanga How Can You Be Identified While Wearing Like A Ninja?Komanso Amalawi?????

  37. Do they think if they can be taken as netballers, will they put on the same as their uniforms? Why wanting to be so religious as if others are not? To hell with such beliefs

  38. The picture over isn’t a hijjab that’s a #Niqab . #Hijjab only covers ears and leaves the face and to those who take ID photos for passports and driving license are allowed to do so .Then how can they fail to take their ID photos for NRB in hijjab. It’s their Right to do so and they should not allow to remove them. ITS THEIR FREEDOM FOR THEIR RELIGION !!!!!

  39. Kamuzu Banda said , and I quote Leaning is not only going to school but u must travel as well. I have been almost all over the continents I have never ever see An ID with a covered face that insane.

  40. Wooza Malawi understanding alwaz imavuta that’s de major problem only with black people. Zazii kulephera ku siyanitsa za chipembezo and de government issues. Work up Malawi

  41. Mtundu uwu paja sukulu imavutirapo kodi akamati Identification ndekuti chiyani?????? Kunotu si ku Syria kapena ku Boko hallam kuno ndi ku Malawi ngati sakufuna osasiya bwanji

  42. Our cameras r designed to capture the face of the applicant not the covered face. The camera crops every feature of the face so a covered face cannot be captured. If removing their mask for 2min is a sin then choose to b a malawian without the identification.

  43. I hope in Malawi we don’t have constitutions, it made instant during certain conversation. Please be serious people. What do the constitution says about this? try to put light upon please

    • Kuno ndiye ma somaria ndi style yawo yobera imeneyi amakhala ayika mfuti muchimene mukuti hijabucho kodi Mesa izi amayenera kupanga panthawi yopemphera not everywhere siyanisani za chipembezo ndi za ziko if you think kuti ndinu olungama pomavala zimenezo then stop za nziko mupange zanuzo musasokoneze ena more over mwavala bwino koma mitima yanu ili full with evil things mwapindulanji first konzani miyoyo yanu not chithupi

  44. To hell with their so called hijabs,, ts a national issue & accompanied by formal rules,, if they resist, leave them unregistered…on top of that,, they irritate me very much… haha

  45. Stupid people there not Malawi if government giving to people like this meaning the stupid too the can go where the coming from idiot people the murder people that it problem

  46. Stupid people there not Malawi if government giving to people like this meaning the stupid too the can go where the coming from idiot people

  47. These murder fuckerz are so clueless! Identity is for the people to recognize u. How will some1 know u if u all look the same covering the whole head and face just leaving a small space for the eyes? actually Moslems ndimbuli. They don’t knw the meaning of identity. They don’t want us to identify them when they bomb places wth their suicide bombs coz its wht they are good at. Always they hide under their religion under these musks to perform their evil deeds.

    • Kamwanadala ..Muslim ndimbuli the don’t know the meaning of identity..do you know the meaning of identity..do you know that even hijab its identity for Muslim woman…then you accuse a woman be ignorant because she refuse to remove her hijab because she understanding her rights…Malawian constitutional says..Malawian Muslim women can have an ID while she exercise her identity( putting her hijab as longer the face is open) …you’re also mbuli for not recognize that Hijab its an identity for Muslim woman…

    • Jamar Isaacs understand that not everyone is interested to knw about ur stupid religion. The issue about identity is that ur face must appear all and match the one on the Identity card. If all Muslim women cover their heads and all their faces just living a small space for the eyes to see then there is no point of them to go all of them to make their identity cards. Just send two Muslim women to represent all Muslim women in those musks. Choose the one wth a big head and the one wth a small head to take identities for them all coz they will look the same. I think this kind of wearing is the evil trick of the devil to hide the wrong doers among Muslim women. Imagine if u are in a mall then u see a group of 100 Muslim women covering faces like this. If one muslim woman wearing like this shoot someone wth a gun and throw it away and run into the group of her friends wearing so will we be able to identify her easily? She can win the case in court coz the identity is similar to many then to prove her guilty will be difficult. U see hw evil and stupid u are. Malawi is not an Islamic country and u must do something that everyone will understand. Take ur musks out and be open and transparent to anybody. We need to see ur true identities. Ur true faces not the ones wrapped in clothes. Don’t hide under the musks!

  48. Mmene ndikuziwila ID, amafuna chinthuzi cha momwe munthuyu amaonekela nthawi zonse, nde akamuvulitsa hijab kuti aoneke momwe aliyense amaonekela, kodi pomazagwirisa ntchito ma ID azavulidwanso hijab yaoyo. That is unfair, their right is totally violated. According to their religious traditional, it is unlawful for a woman to be in public places without put on hijab. Mwachiziwikile amene ankachita izi kwa amayiwa ndi mbuli, akusoweka kudziwisidwa mdziko la Malawi muli ufulu osankha chipembezo chomwe ukufuna. Don’t mention name of Jesus in vein, what’s wrong with hijab? who can get involved to sin just because he saw a woman in hijab? watch your mouth people, and don’t claim that you are Christian whilst you are not. Our God is of peace, musaipise mbali ya ma Christians please!

  49. The pictue that has been shown here is misleasing…thats not a hijab.a hijab just covers ears and hair..poor represantation by the news souce

  50. Mr/Mrs Future’e Abubakar Mdeza I’ve a few questions for you….
    (1) When you sleep, do you sleep with your headgears?
    (2)You wear those headgears every single day, are you trying to say that by removing them for just 2 minutes you will go to HELL?
    (3) Are you running the Government that now it (Government) has to follow (be bound) and observe all your RULES, REGULATIONS and DOCTRINE of your Religion?
    (4) Are you trying to tell the General Public of the Republic of Malawi that we now must be Governed by the Laws of other States (Countries)?

    Righteousness is not by what you wear, carry, put/apply on your body…..NO!!! Your DEEDS will justify your righteousness. In secret places you sin…..committing all sorts of Atrocities……but in public you want to be seen as ANGELS.

    Judge yourself(ves)………I can guarantee you that the last time you sinned was just a few hours ago…… you’ve sinned against God and Mankind.

    Malawi has LAWS, RULES & REGULATIONS that every single person living or wishing to live in our Republic must adhere to regardless of their Nationality, Religion beliefs, Cultural beliefs, Traditional beliefs and/or Personal beliefs just to mention a few.

    Lastly you can not force The Government to adhere to your wants and needs as a Religion. You live in a Country that has Laws, Rules and Regulations…….it’s either you adhere to that or migrate to a country where they will bow down to what you want…….PERIOD.

    NKHANDWE PAKATI PA NKHOSA……(STOP THAT)

    WANDISOKOSERA NKULINGA UTANVA………..

  51. I put a smile on my face because I can deduce as a human being that the Ummah is coming together. Muslims in Malawi stand on one side when the enemies of Islam gang up against the Ummah.

  52. You Muslims, can’t u open your face and let them take a photo for your Identity and then put back your headgear? Why can’t u understand this very small issue?
    Aaa gyz be serious, if you don’t want ID’s go to the gvt and tell them to stop making ID’s for u.

  53. Asiyeni aslam akhale ndi chipembedzo chaochi chamulungu

    ngati simukufuna kuwajambula bwanji osangosiya?

  54. Taonani anthuwa pachithunzipo palibe kusiyana olo atakubera palibe zomwe ungamuloze kuti ndi uyu go to school again and knw the meaning of real IDETINTY what it mean?Not to show 2eyes only like American Ninja wasting time to the people for nothing.

  55. Koma M’malawi nde sazathrkaso basis chinthucho nde chikutchedwa identity sopano ukazibisa nkhope chikhalaso Identity????????? Azimayi amenewo Panyopawo amangopita kukawayesa ojambulawo!!!!!! Finish n klaaaar

  58. NRB manual book on page 92 states that head coverings are not permitted except for religious reasons, but facial features from bottom of chin to top of forehead and both edges of face must be clearly shown. Please guys don’t insult others religious beliefs……… Pliz stop insulting them before God punishes u

  59. Religion is not culture, Religion is the way of perfect life after death. Some people they think they will live in this life forever yet evrybody will test the agony of death. Thus why we moslems we gurantee our lives in religion Islam. So may you please stop fight agenst us because we have never fought agenst you

    • Kunenakut stupide pa mfundo zot anthu akukambirana zimenezo sizikusonyeza upandu wanu lamulo ndi lamulo ofcurse koma nawo achipembezo amapanga aply ndipo kuti muoneses zimenezi asilamu sakukakamiza kapena kukulamulani inu azipembezo zina ai iwo akupempha kumvali yawo ndipo ndikukhulupilira kut ndi chifuniro cha Mulungu zitheka

    • But that religious belief is complicated, how can someone not from your family identify u just seeing your eyes only? Try to eradicate such policy in your belief .

  64. Kkkkkkkkkk did they die after removing their headgear? If they put their headgear they look the same on their face so the officer was confused then he/she just ordered them to remove kkkkkk no disrespect of the religion but identity

    • So u Anastazia do u have a brain or do u use your sense organs properly? How can they take National ID’s in their Ninja’s dressing? What does the word Identification mean? Don’t let your religious belief to harm the national ID’s processing and how can someone identify u with your headgear?

  67. Malawi24 they luv it when people insults islam..i hope admin wherever u a u happy.how come u post your story about malawi muslims with head gear yet u put muslim women with nikaab..?we know u dont like islam but to these point u a really showing your islamophobia.to those who think muslims are foraigner they should think again..we also deselve equal prevellage just like any citizen in this country.

    • Whats the point of Staying covered for a man who marries 10 wives???
      I’d rather stay naked and have a man of my own! Than marry someone whose’ religion supports him in marrying ten wives!! What kind of God do u people worship???

    • If u are claming about to marry ten wives u must also clame people from nothern rigion they do marry fifteen above better moslems they only marry 2,3 or 4. Now to come to the point of covering the body we are not forcing u to do so even there is some moslem women they stay like u they dont cover but we never force them to cover their bodies only those who they believe in God like mother Mary. Now when we come to u like u said u like to stay nacked i dont thik u have a man

  68. Sungamudziwe ninja ngati ali mu mask akavula ndi pamene umamudziwa kuti uyu ndi Shoko Sugi kapena uyu ndi Michael D atachotsa tchingila musatiwonetse kusazazindikila chonde

  69. Half the people commenting didnt even read the story, the manual states you may keep your scarf on for religious purposes when taking the photos, the woman was being forced to remove her scarf, nowhere does it talk about covering her face. Her face was perfectly visible , so what’s your argument ?

  70. I don’t understand why Moslem women are complaining on photo taking. Through the photos above who can be able to identity their faces while their faces are covered?

  71. Nanga bwanji zima sisetele zanuzo zimajambulitsa zitamvara chipango mutu,ndye mudana ndi a slam chifukwa chani ,iwe ukulimbana ndi aslam upeza polekera stupit

  72. Chomwe chikundisangalasa ndi chakuti munthu yemwe akunyoza chipembezo cha nzake chosecho wachita nawo holiday dzulo,,subhanallah,,,,,, proud to be muslim without fear

  73. KKKKKKKKK MA NINJA ,MUSAWAPATSE MA ID asiyeni ,alembeni amene sali ninjas basi .ndi chifukwa chake Mr Trump awaletsa kulowa Ku america .chotsani zitsiru za azimayi uhule basi

  74. lol Muslims are very selfish I don’t know why they are given acres of space in predominately Christian Nations a rare thing in Islamic nations they should remove their bloody Hijab or khimar whatever they call it and adhere to the laws of this land

  75. The issue here is not the headgear but the face. We are supposed to be identified by our facial outlook not eyes only? Let us be serious with ourselves

  76. Ma Arab anafikira mphepete mwanyanja mkumene anapezerera mbuli zaanthu mkuwapusitsa ndichipembedzo chosadziwika bwino,zimenezo adzivala kokapemphera osati mma function ngati amenewa,ku.road traffic,ku nbb kuvutitsa ndiinu ndani inuyo ndipo mulipo angati?shupit

  77. What kind of registration will it be with a face covered, taking other peoples cultures and religion to extremes now, its just so hard to believe what ignorance can do to people.

  78. Vuto simukwavesa azimayiwa kodi kulibe ma camera woman kumalawi ngati alipo wy osauza ameneo khalani ovesa zimene wina afuna

  79. Stupid, its their rights to put on hijab when processing the Identity cards, after malawi is not the only country to register this, other countries women were allowed to register while in their hijabs, think twice there don’t be rediculous with this stupid, we have been seen Catholic Sisters registered while in their headgear, and you didn’t have a problem with that!

  80. Anthu amenewa ndi abububu samafuna kubvetsa zinthu amaona ngati malawi ndi dziko la chisilamu koma ayiwale bcz malawi will never tolarate such behaviour.

  81. They must go to hell hw can they recognise them if they are like that that’s nonsense so even if it’s a driving licence they will be like that hahaha tell me it’s a joke

  82. These stupid so called Muslim women do they have guts, it seem they were born with those heard gears from their mothers womb ? What a shame, they forget that when they were coming to this world they they were naked. That’s bullshit.

    • U mean that I have not look around,,, I have move around almost the whole Malawi,, as talking here am in Zanzibar Tanzania,, so the way Muslims are,,,in Malawi u can not compare the way they are here it just a minor religion,,, whether u like or what

    • U foolish Muslims dnt run away from facts,Malawi is dominated by Christians, that fact can’t b changed,this country has its own rules en regulations which must b followed regardless of religion,race,tribe….name it,each religion has its own belief en if we choose to follow our beliefs which violate the rules of this country siziyendapo,everyone knows hw important IDs are,the word itself says it all…IDENTITY, how can u b identified by covering almost the whole face??? Be civilised,removing those jihabs or whatever u call it for just two minutes doesnt guarantee u a place in hell

  83. Aaaa awanso alibe nfundo. Amafuna aziwajambula atavala chimpango kumutu? Ngati safuna, azipita ku Saud Arabia akaone momwe azimayi kumeneko amawachita treat, nonsense.

  84. Ignorance at its best,shame these pipo they think one can be saved by wearing something tht covers the whole face.Accept Jesus Christ and be saved.its neva too late.

    • Ndiye mukamuchotsa mpango pomwe iye amaoneka choncho nthawi zonse, ndiye Id’yo ikafuna kugwira ntchito yake mudzimuvulanso kuti mumudzindikire?

    • U wnt us to accept Jesus povala moyaluka? Kodi iwe chi khristhu umachitenga ngat chipemphezo? Tisiyeni ife tizivala mmene Mulungu watilamulira….. inu azimayi amavala ma min skirt ku church ife hijab so palibe ukupanga za mu2 wina apa 👇👇👇👇

    • Don’t be brain washed my brother.Paul was called to preach the good news of Jesus.Read Act 9v3-5.Then read Romans 1v1-9.Don’t be ignorant my brother.

    • Ur religion is gud at nothing except killing pipo.U’re pathetic.What makes it even worse is the fact that u kill in da name of God.Which God do u save for that matter?Hw does it make u feel to hear on Radio or to watch on TV when the likes of Boko Haram,Alishabab and ICC are killing innocent pipo in da name of God.If u’ve conscious hw does it make u feel? Which God promote the killings?

    • We’re not judging but putting the record straight.John 8v32.Diz pipo needs to know the truth abt God and not diz inherited things @Neerah

    • Waluza….stop urging wit this poor Muslim felaz whu knw nating about gospel,& bliv me u will never convis them despite so many teachings u can shower to them…..& read your bible in agalatia,
      You will cam across the verse which stops the try Christian to urgue wit pple of this religions

    • A waluza even jesus killed in the name of god but i dnt expect u to knw that bcos u a blind. Go read luke 19 v27 u wil b shocked my frnd..the thing is,the more pple paint black the facade of islam the more muslim dig into their religion and guess what we find?the killing is there too

    • Mr samuel u only convert ppl by making them understand after discussion,convice them,let them knw..but the trueth is u cnt do that..tell u this,muslims by far knws the bible better than christian themselves thats why u cnt convice them,insead they wil dent yo little faith…

    • U r right samuel and if there is a dead religion which is misleading many people is Islam no wonder they think they will see the Kingdom of God without accepting Jesus christ as the personal Lord and saviuor,,inenso ndinali munthu amene sindimasiyanitsa pakati polandira Yesu ndi kupemphera koma nditamasulidwa ndinadziwa choonadi

    • At the end of the day ajambulitsa ali mma hijab we both knw that..jst month ago it happened the same thing when muslim women denied the prevellage to hav a licence in hijaab and it was like this,u insulted muslims and islam right,left and center then you ate humble pie when they were allowed.gosh it must be a bitter pill to swallow

    • What is the problem the constitutional allows them to have ID with hijab..muslim woman they’re not forcing anyone to put hijab on ID..they respect your rights why cant you christian respect also their rights because malawi its a democratic country..I have reading the post here..people thinking that they understanding the meaning of identity but in context they don’t understand at all..Hijab specifically its an ID for Muslim woman..it makes them to be recognized that ..they’re Muslim even in the foreign country…pls this Muslim woman they’re fighting what it is in constitutional N.R.B..as longer they’re not violent your rights they’re expecting you to do the same….you attack them if they attack you back AMAKONDA NKHONDO

    • Iam sorry and ashamed with muslims of today they waist much of their time reading or studing the Holly Bible than corani for the sake of comparison. Ziri ndi phindu lanji pa moyo wanu wa uzimu? A christ alibe nayo busy korani koma inuyo you are so interested and busy with the Holly Bible. Sichina koma ndi muzimu woyera umene umakukakamirani kuti muzilikonda bukhu loyera kuti mwina mungatembenuke mutachiziwa choonadi.

    • Its difficult for them to concentrate on coran cos its not easily accessible even for the muslims themselves. Again not every muslim knows arabic.The coran itself doesn’t despise Jesus,it talks good of Him.The ids in hijub can hardly be ahuman feature’s identification.Believe you me, their Ids won’t be valid and it will be hard for any official to refer to their Ids.Thas amuslim Id and not ahuman facial Id.A waste of time for them in attending registration.

    • Muslim started reading the bible when christian started attacking islam..yes we read the bible bcs for centuries christian hav been preaching bad about islam..not about holy sprit blah blah blah..as if u knw tha holy spirit….oooh its part of your god,pardon ma manners.

    • U’re so funny dude.U can’t find Christians akupanga msonkhano wonyoza aslam,Neva!
      Kma inu busy denting Christianity.Let me tell u diz,Christianity is here to stay. ur forefathers failed to eliminate it wen there was only 70 pipo as Christians.They persecuted them all over Jerusalem.Bt instead of eliminating them,the number of Christians were growing each passing day.

    • U forgetting that the 1 who founded christianity is the 1 who was busy killing thoz who were following jesus.what u talking about here now mr..get yo fact together.paul did the killing end come up with his own teaching,contradicting jesus

    • A salmin mudzadziwa choonadi ndipo choonadi chidzakumasulani; John 8:32 ,, chifukwa inenso ndinali mchristu amene ndimapemphera koma ndisanalandire Yesu ndiye inuyo sitimakudabwani kuti mumayima pa kusamva chifukwa chipembedzo chanu phata lake ndi ziwanda and ufune usafune mu Quran palibe chinthu ingakhale chimodzi chimene munthu chingampatse chipulumutso koma read the Bible ndi pamene udzadziwe choonadi,,ndikanakonda tikanakumana maso ndi maso a salmin kuti ndidzakuuzeni zimene inuyo mmakhulupilira ndikumaona ngati za chipulumutso.Mulungu akalora mawa ndidzakupatsa ma sura udzawerenge wekha usaoneke ngati ukuona koma uli ndi khungu ino ndi nthawi yotseguka mmaso auzimu osati a kuthupi

    • Bruno odekha sir,bring the verse am all ears and eyes..to biggin with if you can tell me that jesus started chrstianity with its proof,i wil b 1 of you..i have in seen pple like you,very eager to meet,and on the 1st day they say let me go and study again,we exchange numbers but if u i call them they always busy.i mean pastors some if u giv them the bble verse they dont knw if that verse exist,bcos they only memorised few verses..bring the verse of qur’aan and i will giv u the verse of the bible though i dont knw which bble u using

    • Iwe kape ungolongola ndi zinthu zopanda phindu chifukwa olo pamenepo nditakuuza kuti undipatse verse lomwe likunena kuti Chikhrisitu ndi mpingo wa Mulungu n ngati yesu anabwera ndi Chikhrisitu anabwera ndimipingo ingati

    • Mphwanga utha kunena mmene unganenere cause Chisilamu chinabwera ngati mulendo komaso chidzapita muchilendo nthawi imene mudzafune kuti muudzuwe it shall be too late to you the so called Christians

  85. Kodi midyomba bwanji mumafuna kuvutitsa ? musawajambule makape amenewa kapena akhuta mpunga wa mwenye,? A bit patuma musavutitse kumeneko mwanva?!

  86. Lol Muslims again, that’s understood. Or how can the officials be sure of the applicants? Uwu ndi umbuli obadwa nawo
