Blaspheming MURIC, Tells Nigerians, To Calm And Please Allow Police To Do Their Job
Ishaq Akintola, the Director of The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), Professor, has criticized the murder of a student, Deborah Samuel, over plausible blasphemy in Sokoto state Nigeria on Thursday 12 May 2022.
This was spread in a report unleashed on Friday, May 13, . Via the information, the MURIC leader followed the killing as terrible and without lawful reason.
The announcement is as followed: “A female student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, Sokoto state, Deborah Samuel, was on Thursday killed for allegedly blaspheming against the Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). The blaspheme message was reportedly broadcasted on a Class WhatsApp group.
“They requested her to remove the comment but she allegedly declined to do as she was told. The school’s protection unit and police were overpowered by the mob when they attempted to save her.
“MURIC vehemently decries this murder and all others that have been occurring in the country in current times. Those aggrieved by the student’s placement should have reported her to the security agencies or the Shariah police, the hisbah. Mass killing is ancient, bad, and bohemian. It belongs to the Stone Age.
Nobody has the freedom to take the rule into his hands.
“The Majestic Qur’an analogizes the killing of a single individual to the killing of the entirety of humankind just as it compares the protection of life to the saving of all homo sapiens (Qur’an 5:32) In like way, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) himself anathematized all actions of brutality and supported peaceful behavior at all times.
“While this happening should not be criticized in sequestration. The current movement whereby Nigerians now willingly shed their brothers’ blood should be criticized by all mist. In this respect, we also firmly condemn the slaying of several Northern Muslims in the South Eastern parts of the country in the past few months.
“We glare on the current burning last week of a truck fully packed with cows in the South-Eastern part of the nation as agreeably as the slaying of many Muslims of South-East root by their Igbo brothers in the exact South East. We report with eager claim that Muslims in the North did not punish when these killings were abiding place.
“MURIC calls on the Sokoto Police Command to do everything within its ability to get to the root of the killing of the female student over apparent blasphemy. We petition members of the public to stay calm and law-abiding. Nigerians should let the police carry out their examinations on the case. The Sokoto Police Command has begun well as it already has two suspects in custody for the murder of the lady.
“Meanwhile we remind Nigerians to constantly exercise control on issues of religion. Freedom of speech is no longer free if it amounts to religious inspiration. Even the European Court has judged that the word of mocking statements against the prophet of any religion is a corruption.
“We demonstrate absolutely, categorically, and unequivocally that there is a symbiotic relationship between motivation,
brutality and extremism. While MURIC will not favor extremism and violence, the anatomy of terrorism is evolving more clearer day by day. We must all consider the causal-effect view. Violence and terrorism are sheer signs.
The actual condition is a motivation. Violence and terrorism are mere smoke. Provocation is the fire and we all know that there is no smoke without fire, he added,
“We, thus, demand to Nigerians to stop insulting, criticizing or manipulating the prophets of other faiths. Muslims should persist to respect Jesus (peace be upon him) whom the Christians hold especially dear. In the exact vein, Christians should bypass radiating hints on the individual of Prophet Muhammad (SAW). We bear participated sufficiently spiritual problems in the Country,” the report He added.
