Uproot ungodly Practices of Sectarianism- Museveni

President Yoweri Museveni has commended the role of religious leaders in breaking what he termed as ungodly practices of sectarianism in society. 

Museveni said the founding of the Inter-Religious Council has been instrumental in breaking sectarian barriers. He said this in his Easter Sunday message as Christian devotees celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 

"It is good to hear the new message. Indeed, we have been saluting the religious leaders of Uganda for forming the inter-religious council in the year 2001 to bring together all the religious faith of the Country. Keep it up and uproot completely the ungodly practices of sectarianism," Museveni said. 

Here is Museveni's full Easter message

Fellow Ugandans, especially the Bazzukulu,
Greetings. Congratulations on the Good Friday and I wish you a happy Easter (amahiimbuuka). 
I am in Rwakyitura with Maama and, later, we shall go to Kisozi to celebrate Jesus’ victory over death but also to audit and augment the NRM work among the Wanainchi in the battle for wealth creation in all the homesteads of Uganda. 

While here, I was very happy to watch the good sermons on Good Friday given by the Christian preachers (Bishops and others), around the theme of the “Way of the Cross”. I was glad to hear all the preachers talking of the greatest Christian commandments being two. Those are: “Love God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, love your neighbour as you love yourself.”

Praised be the Lord to hear that message being proclaimed by all the preachers, universally. That has been the position of the NRM ever since 1965. Indeed, that is why we chased religious leaders (Army chaplains) out of the NRA –UPDF. Many of the preachers were preaching the ungodly message of sectarianism of religion and tribe and gender chauvinism.
