-Imam Krayee Asserts
The chief imam of Liberia and principal of MUJA International School has obliterated public insinuations that the school basically teaches the Islamic and Arabic doctrines.

Speaking at the first graduation ceremony of the school, Sheikh Ali Krayee said the school was established to boost the educational sector of the country aim at creating opportunity for Liberians to have a place where they can go to acquire knowledge.
Imam Krayee however said though the school was built to promote the Islamic moral values, but indicated that students of different faith have enrolled and are acquiring basic academic education without being cohere to join or practice the Islamic faith.
The Liberia chief imam further gave scenarios of other Christian schools across the country which teach basic academic lessons, but still promote Christian moral values.
In adherence to its establishment, the MUJA International School principal said the administration of the school remains committed to its national duty by allowing Liberians regardless of religious, tribal and other beliefs to enroll at the school.

“This is MUJA International, this school embraces everyone. You can be a Buddhist, a Hindu and even a Christian you are welcomed here, in fact, most of the staffs here are Christians,” Sheik Krayee said.
The tough talking Islamic Clergyman however frowned on some Liberians who promote religious segregation through their public speeches and at other levels of the society.

“At MUJA, our Christian students are not compelled to study Arabic that is why all the regular subjects are taught in the morning hours. By 1:00pm, when it’s time to pray, those who don’t have no interest in Arabic can go home and those who are interested in studying Arabic come after the prayer to study Arabic,” he added.

For his part, Rev. Emmanuel Bowier who served as keynote speaker at the graduation ceremony traced the historicity of how Muslims and Christians have coexisted dating as far back as the 1800s.

According to the then Information Minister, both Muslims and Christians are all ‘strangers’ in Liberia by making specific reference to their various historical immigrations to Africa.
Rev Bowier said though he is a believer of the Christian faith, but the coexistence of the two religion is very important for Liberia for its forward match.
“I have been criticized by many of my Christian colleagues of supporting the Muslim faith. But the truth about their criticism is that, I was born in a place where the first sound I ever heard was the Muslim call to prayer cry,” he stressed.
MUJA International School was established in 2014, the school was able to put out at least 4 of its senior students following the completion of all their basic secondary education courses and passing the West African Examination Council (WAEC).
