ዛሬ በማህበራዊ ሚዲያ ላይ ሲዟዟር ያየሁት የ @ETHZema "የወቅታዊ ደህንነት ትንተና" የሚል ሰነድ ካነበብኩ በኋላ ብዙ ልፅፍ አስቤ ነበር ነገር ግን ሙስሊሙን በተመለከተ ያስቀመጡት ጉዳይ ሁሌ የምንሰማው የ #ሙስሊምጠል ግለሰቦች እና መንግስታት
1/6 ዋና መገለጫ ስለሆነ ችላ ማለቱን ወደድኩ። ደግነቱ የነሡ ግልፅ ወጣ እንጂ ስንቱ በድብቅ ተመሳሳይ አቋም አለው :: ለ #ኢትዮጵያ #ሙስሊሞች እና መላው ህዝብ አዘንኩ። #ኢስላምን አለህ (ሱ.ወ.) እራሱ ይጠብቀዋል ፤ እኛን እና ሐገራችንን እሱ ይጠብቀን 2/6

I had asked @EthzemaLeader the following question after his controversial/deliberate remark against #IslamicBanking/#InterestFreeBanking (as it is called here in #Ethiopia). I have today watched another video of him where he tried to "Clarify" but continued to insult us more.
1/n First of all, he has tried to defend that he is not an #islamophobe by bringing #Muslim audience & that his grandmother was a Muslim. This is the same reply many persons give when they are confronted with their #Islamophobic attitude. #BerhanuNega is no different.

Yesterday, we have witnessed the handing over of the 1st operational licence to the first full-fledged #InterestFree Bank #ZamZamBank which is a historic milestone in the #Ethiopia'n Banking industry. #IslamicBanking #IFB #FinancialInclusion
#ZamZam 1/n Image After the promoters of #ZamZam initiated the idea to the #NBE a directive was issued in October 1, 2011 to allow conventional banks only to give the service along with their commercial services. The #NBE's decision has saddened many. 2/n

I was in my father’s birthplace (‘#Al_Ansha Meda’, between ‘#Boru_Meda’ & ‘#Kuta_Ber’, some 20 minutes drive from #Dessie) with my Dad two months ago. There are more than 1,400+ households in the area who have been deprived of electricity. #Wollo #GERD #AccesstoElectricity ImageImageImageImage I am not sure they will get electricity when #GERD starts. The residents bitterly complain that the current and previous administration deliberately ignored their plea to access road and electricity despite thier interest to co-finance it. #GoodGovernance #InclusiveGrowth ImageImageImageImage

#Muslims r one of the most financially excluded citizens in #Ethiopia & their primarily reason is #Riba. But I wonder how & where the data for such reports are collected? "Financial inclusion in Ethiopia: 10 takeaways from the latest Findex" tinyurl.com/ydhmd738 via @WorldBank Citizens who identify themselves as #Muslims account for 34% of the #Ethiopia'n population (CSA, 2007). This large segment of the society was demanding Shari'ah Compliant #finance for long time. Banks first responded by introducing 0% interest A/C #financialinclusion @WorldBank
