There is a lot of theories and speculation going around. What we are saying to our community and the broader South African community is for calm to remain, for people not to go on witch hunts. We are very confident in the South African Police Services, as well as if there is a need for the South African Intelligence Service to come in as well.Shaykh Isgaak Taliep, Secretary General of the Muslim Judicial Council
We are standing in strong condemnation of this particular thing.Shaykh Isgaak Taliep, Secretary General of the Muslim Judicial Council
We sympathise with our brethren in KZN. From United Ulama Council of South Africa, they have deputised some of our colleagues in that particular region to visit the families of the people that got injured as well as the person who tragically lost his life.Shaykh Isgaak Taliep, Secretary General of the Muslim Judicial Council
