The Ameer and Missionary-in-Charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission have observed that Ghanaians have collectively contributed to the country’s unprecedented extreme economic hardship.
He said in the wake of this sad development, the people were quick to point at individuals or groups as being responsible.
Maulvi Alhaji Bin Salih was opening the 89th Annual National Convention (Jalsa Salana) at Bustan-e-Ahmad in Accra under the theme: Khilafat-e-Ahmadiyya- A Tool for Authentic Islamic Revival.
The Ameer attributed the present economic hardship to Ghanaians having relegated God and God-consciousness to the background and in doing so had adopted a corrupt lifestyle.
Maulvi Bin Salih said the convention was being held at the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to the loss of thousands of human lives worldwide.
Besides, the pandemic had also led mankind into one of the most horrendous eras in the history of our contemporary world, reducing many vulnerable countries, like Shana, into states of complete despair.
