MSSN Cautions Religious Leaders On Inciting Statements


By; BAYO AKAMO, Ibadan.
The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria, (MSSN) on Saturday advised religious leaders in the country to stop making inciting statements.
MSSN in a statement made available to newsmen by its Lagos state Amir, Dr. Saheed Ashafa declared that hate speeches by religious leaders were becoming worrisome,adding that no religion would benefit from the consequences of hate speeches.
“We all should realise that Nigeria is passing through a very tough and challenging period. As religious institutions, we should mitigate tension and not heighten it. Our role should be to calm and enlighten our faithful on the path of peace,”he said.
The MSSN Amir pointed out “killings in any part of the country should be condemned and not given a place in any society” adding, “it is normal for Muslim leaders to clarify that Muslims are actually the ones that are being killed against the wrong information that they (Muslims) are the ones attacking. Such reaction should be respected and not countered with threats”.
“Those fanning embers of crisis should desist from that to save this nation from sinking beyond recovery. Our unity is more needed now than ever. We must not worsen the economic and unity challenge Nigerians are faced with.”
