The Mufti of Uganda, Sheikh Shaban Ramadhan Mubaje, has been appointed to the International Supreme Council of Muslim Leaders, which brings together Muftis from 21 countries.

In a statement issued over the weekend, Haji Nsereko Mutumba, the Uganda Muslim Supreme Council-UMSC, Spokesperson says the International Supreme Council of Muslim Leaders is charged with issuing universally binding Islamic pronouncements known as Fatwa.

The International Supreme Council of Muslim Leaders is chaired by Sheikh Shauki Ibrahim Allama, the Grand Mufti of Egypt, where the secretariat is based.

Membership to the council is permanent; meaning one serves till death. However, a member who misses three consecutive meetings without a sound reason is automatically dropped from the council. 

 

Speaking shortly after returning from the conference, Sheikh Shaban Mubaje said Fatwas issued by the International Supreme Council aims at countering controversial Islamic pronouncements issued by unrecognised clerics or groups such as terrorists.
