Muslim Council wants members to demostrate love, peace at Ramadan

20 June 2015, 16:49

Jalingo - The Chairman of the Muslim Council in Taraba, Alhaji Inuwa Manu, has urged Muslim faithful to use the Ramadan to demonstrate love and peaceful coexistence among different religious adherents in the state.

Manu made this known in an interview in Jalingo on Saturday.

He said the call became imperative following activities of miscreants who were bent on causing public disturbances in the name of religion in the state.

According to him, criminals have infiltrated religious bodies with the sole aim of causing confusion so as to benefit from it.

"If you watch very well, you will see that when they attack, they first loot the shops or houses of their victims before setting them ablaze.

"The worst thing that can happen to us as a people in Taraba is to have religious crisis.

"To the best of my knowledge, what is happening in southern and parts of Central Taraba is not religious crisis, but land-related problems," he said.

He urged the people to embrace peace and respect each other's religion so as not to create room for the miscreants to capitalise on it to cause problem in the state.

Manu said the council had directed its members in all branches to preach love, unity and peace in their sermons during Ramadan.

The chairman urged the people to support Governor Darius Ishaku, to deliver on his campaign promises in the interest of the state.
