The title of this paper, which RABITA asked me to prepare, suggests a struggle between Muslims and the systems that embrace Secularism and Western Civilization. In fact the current global prejudice against Muslims, in the secular states and Western countries, confirms the existence of that struggle.
I dare say that for as long as Muslims remain disunited and without a central leadership, which upholds the fundamental principles of Islam, they will always face the effects of this conflict.
Traditionally, the region described as East Africa was composed of three countries – Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. However, the broader definition includes other countries such as Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti, Malawi, Zambia, and Mozambique. Politically, today the East African Community is composed of five countries: - Burundi, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda. In this paper, when we refer to the region called East Africa, we shall be restricted to three countries – Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. However it should be noted that we shall say about Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda will in many ways be applicable to the other countries of the bigger Eastern African region with the exception of Somalia.
