laudate:


1). Muric has not taken action against the killings of muslims in the north by Boko Haram, by presenting a memorandum to the Senate on the issue. sad

2). Muric has not taken action against the issue of almajiri who roam the streets, and are deprived of a sound education.

3). Muric has not taken action against child-marriages, where young girls are given out in marriage to men old enough to be their fathers, within the muslim community.

4). Muric has not taken action against Fulani herdsmen who ransack entire communities and kill innocent muslims, in addition to those of other faiths. undecided

5). Muric has not taken action against the fact that women are not allowed to practise as lawyers in Sharia courts, thereby depriving such women the fundamental right to earn a living, in a legitimate manner. sad

But Muric now has enough time and energy to pursue frivolities like the hijab, which is an item of clothing not even mentioned in the Quran? Kai! shocked

Once approved and passed to Law, then Traditional Worshippers will wear their own caps. Christians and Pagans and Judahism faithfuls will all wear theirs too. We are not under an Islamic state. We are multi-religious state. Therefore, upholding, approving or allowing the interests of one or two groups to reign supreme over the others is an act of injustice and domination. It is a plan to annihilate and submerge the other existing religious entities and cultures. This is no Arabic Caliphate.

Religious-wise is the most dangerous slippy-sloop.

We have traditionalists, who still worship Africa native gods and they have their adornments, we have Revered Fathers/Sisters who are lawyers, CAC people, Cele people, etc, etc....If you allow the Muslim adornment to sip into a circular approved uniform, then you must allow the adornments for the other religious groups.

Anything don religiously incline have the potential of igniting conflict in this country....That is why in every federal of civil service complex, if they build a mosque, the Christians will start agitating for a church and if it is a church they build, they Muslims will want their mosque.

A nudist should be allowed as well if an arabian hijab wearer is allowed. It's also her right and what she deem fit for the occasion!

Until the rules of Sharia court follows the constitution, this nonsense hijab saga should take a back seat!

I don't have a problem with how anyone chooses to dress;my grouse with the girl in question is that she knew the rules but still felt somehow she is above it....If such is allowed it will get to a time when even Rastafarians will insist on being called to bar without cutting their dreads.

Memorandum of STUPIDITY and extreme MADNESS from Muric and the failed fake, useless professor of islamic studies who is always looking for senseless attention. Why not write memorandum for the killings of muslims and innocent Christians by boko haram, why not write for fulani herdsmen killing people for fun. He is running around like a headless chicken because of some senseless hijab copied from arab culture.

The useless man is not encouraging his daft followers to promote his yoruba culture, instead he wants to kill himself on borrowed hijab from arabs who don't know he exists. That man deserves to be arrested for constituting a nuisance to the society. there is little difference between him and mazi dilector. He should be tied and flogged mercilessly.

@POLITICSNGR

The Muslim rights concern group has submitted a memorandum to the Federal house of Representatives concerning the 'injustice' meted out to a Muslim student, Firdaus Amasa.

Amasa made headlines late last year after she refused to remove her hijab in order to be called to bar. Below is a statement made available to PoliticsNGR from MURIC, signed by its leader, Prof. Ishaq Akintola;

The Committee on Judiciary and Justice of the House of Representatives was mandated on Wednesday 20th December, 2017 to investigate the circumstances surrounding Law School hijabgate. A law graduate of the University of Ilorin, AbdulSalaam Firdaus Amasa, was barred from ‘call to bar’ by the Nigerian Law School. The committee was given two weeks for the assignment.
The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has since dispatched its memorandum to the committee.

In summary, MURIC’s memorandum which was addressed to the Chairman of the House Committee on Judiciary and Justice and entitled “Memorandum in Respect of Call to Bar Case in the School of Law”, affirmed the mandatory nature of hijab for Muslim women in the Qur’an and restated the provisions of the Nigerian constitution on freedom of religion and respect for the dignity of the human person. The memorandum also revealed previous court decisions in favour of hijab including a Court of Appeal pronouncement confirming the right of Muslim women to use hijab.

MURIC appealed to the House of Representatives to “stand up for justice in this matter of infringement of Allah-given fundamental right of a lady who, having satisfied all righteousness in the Faculty of Law, University of Ilorin, is being denied her right to practice the law profession on account of her being a Muslim”.
The memorandum also stated that the Law School Hijabgate has brought to the fore the myriad of persecutions faced by Muslim women because of hijab in various sectors.

It adds, “In the process, thousands of Muslims have been denied international passports, driving licences and national identity cards while millions have been disenfranchised during elections. It is a case of mass profiling of Muslims.”

It added, “We therefore appeal to the House of Representatives as the voice of the voiceless and the bulwark against oppression and persecution, to take the bull by the horn by criminalizing the obstruction, denial and stigmatisation of female Muslim women in hijab while carrying out their civic responsibilities like obtaining international passport, driving licence, voters’ registration card, etc.

MURIC concluded by seeking the following reliefs:
1. Immediate ‘call to bar’ for AbdulSalaam Firdaus Amasa;

2. A judicial inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the molestation of Muslim students who were forced to remove their hijab on that fateful day;

3. Identification and adequate disciplinary measure (or measures) in respect of the Law School female lecturer who stepped on the hijab of Firdaus and debased it by using her feet to rub it on the floor and “kicked it around”;

4. a review of the code of dressing in the Nigerian Law School as it affects the ‘manifestation’ of religious beliefs and

5. a review of the dress code in all professions where uniforms are used such that female Muslims in such professions can use suitable hijab along with the uniform.

Does she even have right in Islamic law is it not that she studies common law that was given to us by the colonialist that is why she is claiming right.
Help me tell her that the only right she has in sharia law as a woman is just to stand trial as a criminal not to even defend anybody as a lawyer

If you've not been hearing about MURIC activities that doesn't mean they ain't working. Kindly, Google search....MURIC and one NGO, CERAP or so are the first set of group that raised alarm about the Fulani herdsmen ish and they went to the extent of writing saraki... #make use of google to confirm whether truly they've not been taking steps on the issues you raised.
i am more concerne about the last part of your comment, hey more than 10verses of the quran talked about the use of hijab and countless hadiths talked about it. stop making hasty conclusion on what you have no knowledge of.

You can laugh in Greek, if you like. Na you sabi. sad So they wrote to Saraki on the issue of Fulani herdsmen who claimed the lives of muslims in various towns in nigeria, but this time around they do not want to write a letter to Saraki on Firdaus's issue, they want to write a 'memorandum.'

Let Muric keep deceiving themselves. When are they going to write memorandum on the Almajiris? Or on child marriages? Or on the fact that female muslim lawyers cannot practise law in Sharia courts? Finally, that specific word 'hijab' is NOT in the Quran.

read this carefully.



also watch this video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDinRIepzkA
u are just talking nonsense,and in the first place u are not on a position to discredit even traditional religion or paganism talkless of Islam,u need to know that jesus christ was not a God or his son neither any of u,we believed that God is the supreme being or entity that do not resemble anything that man have which can degrade his power like how jesus christ having an anus and peni.s,there is no way a God or his son visits toilet to piss and defeacate,there is no way a God should pray to another heveanly God,there is no way a God or his son would come to the world through vagin.a,God can not get exhausted as ur said original bible claimed when God got tied creating the world and so he rested. What u are talking about world domination is true but not through war thats why indonesia accept islam or do u ever think indonesians accepted islam by force,thats also an indication american accept islam every day,do u mean there is war in america to force islam convertion ? There is no way prophet mohammad could have copied bible because he would have being literate to do that,mohammad never write no read he just say and somebody write it down,u also need to know there are about 85 % kinds of worship u do that dictate how ignorant u were in understanding the bible for example jesus commanded women to cover their bodies not wear mini skirt in the name of western education,bible said women should not talk in the church not as u are now doing,there is no single place in the bible that the said god of urs said u should visit church on sundays. If a God or his son should go to toilet to defeacate that distinctly shows the contrary should have been devastated,should he ignore to visit toilet there must have been ill health,how can God eat simple food that we are eating ? He let himself be kill to save u and thats means whatever wrong u do commit on earth can not be accountable or rendered void,God do not need joystick or creat a joystick on himself just because of urination and sex while we do strongly believed that God is ever pure he has no dirty likeness and never accept a dirty prayers,he created man to worship him not dance all the time or spreading hatred,u said muslims must fight jihad then i ask u how many jihadist now fighting ? Just estimate,are they up to 70 million ? even if they are then the majority of us are what ? are we not muslims ? If u dnt know 89 percent of jihadist are christians in disguise,they receive armament and supply from countries that wanted to stir up hatred to islam as a tool of propaganda and also people like u who are causing disunity among people,or do u mean u are a good christian ? does jesus tell u to write this passage to creat tension and lies ? if u say no then that means u are not even a christian,coz u can not violate the command of jesus and be a christian at the same time. Lastly u need to know that jesus did not even once said he was a God in ur scriptures,he never say u should worship him and dancing like machael jackson can never save u after u die,the hardship would be regretable and harsh and the feasibility of mending the mistake is impossible,God or his son do not go to toilet and poo and u also need to know that i never read replies so dnt bother ur self

U are also not doing what ur book tell u to do,bible said women should cover their bodies not wear mini skirt and skin tight in the name of education,u are violeting what bible told u seeng somewhere else,secondly does the big men daughters dressing means necessary to be uniformed with other muslims ? Does their position or fathers position forbid them to commit sin ? If not only buhari if imam of all muslims should violate the code of dressing mentioned is islam that means he commit sin whoever he is,there is no exception and that also means they followed ur footsteps. U can see an old woman with skimpy skirt just because she is educated. Lastly dont bother urself writing replies bkos i never read replies since i started with nairaland

I think they would have submitted a memorandum for them to be granted their Islamic country where everything about Islam will be exercised without any inference or disturbance. That will save everybody unnecessarily headaches. These are the things that makes some people believe that this country is not and can never be one.
Am also curious why MURIC is yet to issue a statement or response or their stance on the atrocities metted to the entire nation by Fulani herdsmen. Does it mean hijab is more important than the lives been lost on per second billing?
u need to be fair because we northerners i mean the average and majority do not feel happy abt any killing not even christian or whatever we hate even killing a single person that tried hard to make a farm for his feeding and some one come and finish it in a day,any sane person knows its not right and should a suggested be requested to be provided by us we would have directed a very heavy blow to the fulani only if its some people in disguise

as a learned person m sure you know their are at least three sides to a story.. or an issue, the accused side, the acusee nd the witness side...



have u ever taken ur time to mke research on the origin of bible, as written in Hebrew, how it was converted to almost 10 dif versions, what changed, wt didn't change? why it ws changed nd who changed it? ...



The best way to be knowledgeable is through PERSONAL FACT FINDING FROM ORIGINAL SOURCES ....


PEACE ..

It is not mandatory to read it when those Muslim that read and live by it have not openly come out to condemned the act as anti-islam.
If other Muslim take it up on themselves to de-radicalized the brain washed muslims who take it hook line and sinker what they are took by their shirk then people will have a second perspective to the religion
But for as long as they keep quite when attack is done in the name of Islam non Muslim will joyously see the difference in them
