The group has secured funds for the Muslim Girls to offer them scholarships to study in the United States.
When the students were denied from fasting, Parents of the Muslim students went to the school to resolve the issue amicably but the authorities of the gave them deaf hears, the Methodist has associated itself to the ban of fasting in the school as school rule, the Methodist church associating itself to this rules clearly shows that the Methodist church is showing hate of the Islamic religion. Many calls have called on the Methodist church to as a matter of urgency resolve this issue with the Muslim community to avoid bleeding religious conflicts. The Methodist church insisted that’s their school and their rules and it can’t be changed, if the Muslim students can’t obey their rules, the should look for a different school, Wesley Girls SHS is a School of choice.
