Health-Africa: Thou Shalt Not Condomise

Health-Africa: Thou Shalt Not Condomise
(All Africa)
During a meeting held earlier this year in the commercial hub of Johannesburg, forum leader Ashwin Trikamjee said that for moral and religious reasons, the body placed “a greater emphasis on faithfulness and abstinence as opposed to the use of condoms.”

In an interview with IPS, Ahmad Kathrada of the Jamiatul Ulama—an Islamic group based in the coastal city of Durban—said his organization had education initiatives to promote these two behaviors, and that there were no circumstances under which Muslims were allowed to use condoms.
