#InsideGambia Gambia Bans Music, Drumming And Dancing During Ramadan

The Gambian Police, today, Thursday, June, 9, 2016, placed a ban on music, dance and drumming during the month of Ramadan in the country, a statement from the Office of the Inspector- General of Police said.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Public Relation Officer of the Police, Lamin Njie on Thursday.

It would be recalled in December 2015, President Yahya Jammeh declared the Gambia as an Islamic republic, which automatically makes Islam a predominant religion in the country.

The statement reads in part, “As the Muslim Ummah is observing the Holy Month of Ramadan, The Office of the Inspector General of Police in honour of the Holy Month is hereby informing the General Public that all Ceremonies, Festivities and Programs that involves Drumming, Music and Dance during the day or at night are prohibited.

“All those engaged in the practice are therefore warned to desist from such acts other wise they will be eventually apprehended and face the full force of the law without compromise.

“The Inspector General of Police, is hereby advising the General Public to report any such persons or groups to the police as stern action will be taken against those found wanting of violations.

“While wishing everyone Ramadan Mubarak, the Inspector General of Police seeks the cooperation of the General Public”. The statement added.
