The amalgamation of interest in banking and finance industry is one of the major reason behind this phenomenon and that’s why Muslims hesitate to avail financial or microfinance products and remain excluded from financial access as interest is strictly prohibited in Islamic, If we want to include them into the financial inclusion, then there is an immediate need to design such financial product which will be according to the religious and social beliefs of Muslims to include them into the financial inclusion, he said If Islamic Microfinance is not introduced to resolve poverty issues from the Muslim world then world’s poverty will increase extraordinarily. He mentioned that Islamic Microfinance is a system, it is not a religion and it can be utilized/operated by Muslims or Non-Muslims for social development & poverty alleviation, but for Muslim, they have extra benefit that it is according to their religious belief but for Non-Muslim it is an ideal mechanism to fulfil their financial needs. He agreed that poverty do not have any religion but it can be addressed through different guidance of Islam. He mentioned that the total population of East African Community is about 157 Million, among them 35% - 40% are Muslim but unfortunately Muslim are mostly financially excluded due to un-availability of Islamic Financial products.
