Ethiopia Muslims push on with protests as tensions rising

Mohammad Awad

ADDIS ABABA: Muslims in Ethiopia continued their anti-government protests on Friday, demanding the government end its “meddling” in their internal affairs. Muslims told Bikyamasr.com as they gathered following noon prayers that they were “fed up” with how the government was attempting to “control” their internal beliefs and policies.

“It is very frustrating that the government is continuing a policy that creates tension and then blames us for protesting,” said Mohamed, a 24-year-old Muslim, who told Bikyamasr.com that “we want to always maintain peaceful demonstrations and hope the government does not instigate any action against us.”
