After very frank and cordial discussions on the issue, the Church assured the Muslim delegation of their commitment to resolve the issue within a couple of days Insha Allah.  

His Eminence the Presiding Bishop assured that the board of the school, of which he is the Chairman, will be meeting to discuss the issue and the concerns of the delegation and others will be graciously taken on board to amicably resolve the problem. The church pledged to keep the delegation informed on the specific decision taken at the meeting regarding the resolution of the issue at stake. It is based on this and other related interventions that the Muslim Caucus in Parliament wishes to ask all Muslims to exercise self-restraint, as we are taught in the Month of Ramadan, on the matter and to allow the able leadership of the Methodist Church to deal with the case in consultation with all relevant stakeholders.

The Muslim caucus and Muslim community leaders would like to thank the leadership of the Methodist Church led by the Presiding Bishop, Most Rev.
