Sheikh Aremeyaw added that the Islamic leaders have been making every effort to calm their youth against any form of religious discrimination against Christians.

"This development has made nonsense of this long period of 'claim' that Muslims and Christians here in Ghana are tolerant of each other. I think it is just a farcade", he added.

This comes after Wesley Girls' Senior High School refused some Muslim girls the opportunity to fast, as part of their Ramadan celebrations.
