Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has asked Oduduwa Republic agitators to state what they’ve in stock for Muslim children and women in the South West and what their plan is for hijab.
MURIC additionally desires to know if there’s any provision for civil shariah which “Yoruba Muslims have been demanding for ages.”
The Islamic group stated it was drawing the attention of the agitators of the Oduduwa Republic to the plight of Muslims in Yorubaland.
It stated that leaders of the teams agitating for breakaway should admit that there’s a pressure in Christian/Muslim relationship in the South West and must profer options to addressing it.
He stated, “we draw the eye of the ideologues of Oduduwa Republic to the plight of Muslims in Yorubaland. Leaders of the teams agitating for Yoruba breakaway should admit that there’s a pressure in Christian/Muslim relationship in the South West and profer options as a substitute of blackmailing and accusing it of fomenting trouble within the region. It’s the height of hypocrisy and it’ll not assist the cause of the Yoruba nation.
“We, therefore, ask the Yoruba agitators, what do you’ve in stock for Muslim children and women? What’s your plan for hijab? Is it as dictated by CAN? Is there any provision for civil shariah which Yoruba Muslims have been demanding for ages? The response of the agitators to these questions will go a great distance in determining their readiness to tolerate Muslims or the plot to continue to oppress us,” the statement added.
“Evangelist Joshua Olalekan Ifede should have woken up on the wrong side of the bed.
“Who said there’s religious tolerance in Yorubaland? The female Muslim teachers addressed by Evangelist Joshua are all of Yoruba stock identical to the evangelist himself, however, that did not stop him from stereotyping them.
“We subsequently call on the state government to clarify its position in this diplomatic conundrum. Ogun State Muslims will, thereafter, know the next line of action. Nobody should think that Nigerian Muslims will abandon their women in the hands of oppressors of women and certificated Muslim haters. We assert that all choices are on the desk except violence.
“This man has exhibited extreme hatred for Muslims. We have no confidence in any promotion exercise performed under his supervision.
“Evangelist Joshua has failed to separate the calling of the church from his official obligation as chairman of the Commission in whose hands is the welfare of both Muslims and Christian teachers.”
