The Gambian leader, said “if you call yourself a Muslim, and believe in the supremacy of the Almighty Allah, while labelling Sharia as a bad law, then you are bound to go to hell,” noting that Sharia law is the law of the Almighty God. According to him, Western kind of democracy will not be accepted in Gambia, noting that being Gay is unacceptable in this country as long as he lives.

“Jammeh then said the Muslim ummah is the richest in the world, but the poorest of the poor are found among the Muslims, because we worship the West and at the same time worship Allah, that’s why Allah is punishing us. He said “now the West are proclaiming for human rights, but as Muslims and religious leaders, who would go to the television and say his daugther will marry another one’s daughter, because this is the democracy the West wants to impose on us”.
According to him, that type of democracy will not be accepted here, noting that gay or homosexualism is unacceptable in this country as long as he lives.
“What Allah says in the Qur’an is very clear, which is man can marry woman, but not woman to a woman or man to man. Lesbianism will not be accepted in The Gambia, so their idea of democracy is unacceptable, unislamic and ungodly.
I know that Allah owns everything that is in this world and is only Allah, who can give us to develop this nation and it’s only him, who can deny us that. If we follow Allah, he will give us to develop as he is the one who gives and takes. We have seen that type of democracy coming into this country, but let me tell you that it will not be accepted. We have seen people drumming and dancing in the name of Islam, which is unaccetable”, he warned, adding that he will deal with such people to put a stop to it.”
