Tell us your plans for hijab, MURIC tells Oduduwa Republic agitators
Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has asked Oduduwa Republic agitators to lay their cards on the table to know whether the movement will be supported or rejected
The rights group listed the grey areas that must be addressed by the agitators to earn its (MURIC) support to include agitators’ stance on Muslim children and women in the South West and what their plan is for hijab.
The Director of MURIC, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, made this known in a statement issued yesterday.
According to the statement, MURIC also wants to know if there is any provision for civil shariah which “Yoruba Muslims have been demanding for ages.”
The Islamic group said it was drawing the attention of the agitators of Oduduwa Republic to the plight of Muslims in Yorubaland.
It said that leaders of the groups agitating for breakaway must admit that there is a strain in Christian/Muslim relationship in the South West and must profer solutions to addressing it.
He said, “we draw the attention of the ideologues of Oduduwa Republic to the plight of Muslims in Yorubaland. Leaders of the groups agitating for Yoruba breakaway must admit that there is a strain in Christian/Muslim relationship in the South West and profer solutions instead of blackmailing and accusing it of formenting trouble in the region. It is the height of hypocrisy and it will not help the cause of the Yoruba nation.
“We, therefore, ask the Yoruba agitators, what do you have in stock for Muslim children and women? What is 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 long way in determining their readiness to tolerate Muslims or the plot to continue oppressing us,” the statement added.
