The president of The Gambia Supreme Islamic Council (GSIC), Imam Alhagie Momodou Lamin Touray, has appealed to the Muslim Ummah to support his council to enable them to execute the duties effectively.

Imam Touray made his comments in an interview with this reporter at his residence in Gunjur, Kombo South. According to Imam Touray, the GSIC has a wide range of activities to carry out but was quick to add that they can only do this if given the necessary support from Muslims in one way or other. "We need the support all Gambians either in the form of financial or moral support. Financial constraints some times do hinder our operations and if people can donate the council it will be well appreciated," he said.This, he believes, will address some of the challenges the council is currently facing.

Imam Touray however thanked the government, institutions and a few organisations that have been supportive to the council. He encouraged them to continue the momentum by spending their money in the quest for Janna (heaven).
