Members of the Senate Club, a Muslim social organization based in Abeka suburb of Accra, at the weekend pledged to tackle the menace of cyber fraud through educational programmes and sponsorship for the youth to further their education.

They have also promised to highlight the importance of education in all the programmes as a way of dissuading the youth from engaging in unreligious activities such as gambling, deceit and fraud against other people in society.

Alhaji Issah Mohammed, President of the Club, said this when they feted about 600 Muslims at the Abeka Central mosque after breaking their fast at the weekend.

The “Iftaar”, which went alongside religious film shows, was meant to unite Muslims as peaceful people and to instil morals and discipline into the youth who were victims of various crimes in society.

"As Muslims, we need to show some love and charity towards other underprivileged people in society by, at least, providing some good meals for them to break their fast that started throughout the world about three weeks ago."

Alhaji Mohammed said the club would garner support for the brilliant but needy children in the area to further their education by constantly inviting Muslims who had excelled in life to counsel the youth in the area.

"We shall make sure that we make some funds available for children who are desirous of achieving educational laurels, so that they will not have any excuse to engage in negative activities that drag the name of Islam into disrepute."

Alhaji Mohammed also appealed to Muslims to avoid violent tendencies in society, which had over the years painted Islam as a violent religion although it is a very peaceful one.
