Hijab crisis in Osun state

17 June 2016, 19:08

1. Honestly, it is of great concerns to see Nigerians commenting on simple issues from ethno-religious view-points. I have come to learn that lack of objectivity results from the antithetical realities of our individual or collective claims. 

2. If we do follow the dictates of our religious or irreligious inclinations, Nigeria will be a nation where ethical values are upheld, where corruption will not be permitted as a way of life and where impunity will be less pronounced. Alas, our 'reiligiousity or irreligiosity' stand-points is not obvious at the output end. Let us ask, how we got to our present state.

3. We are a nation where the poor is always at the loosing end. I do not justify stealing or theft, as offenders should be duly dealt with according to the law. But the Ejigbo women got sodomized and their human dignities erased for stealing bags of pepper that cost lest than #50,000. The Aluu FOUR were killed in the worst way ever for allegedly stealing laptops. A woman was allegedly killed for blasphemy in Kano, but I say who commits blasphemy more than the civil servant or public officer who claims to be a muslim or christian, goes on pilgrimage to Mecca or Jerusalem but denies the masses their rights by upholding corruption and impunity. The same individuals who committed these beastly acts would say 'temimole ko koja or ranka dede' to the big thieves who ensured that the money for societal development were pocketed and hence, denied the poor their right status in the society. Unfortunately, our religious leaders subtly joined the ruling elites to further emasculate us economically.

4. The Muslim Communities in Lagos and Osun States took their respective governments to court over the use of hijab in public schools. The Muslims lost the case at the high Court in Lagos State and went ahead to appeal against the judgement. The Muslims won the case in Osun State, and all parties have the rights to appeal against the judgement.

5. Honestly, this should be not an issue for polarity at a time we should all be focused on enthroning ethical values, attitudinal reforms and rescuing the economy from recession.
