Fridays work-free, allow hijabs – Muslims list 6 restructuring demandsPublished on October 9, 2017 By Wale Odunsi

Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has listed its demands to the All Progressives Congress (APC) restructuring committee.

MURIC 6-point demand is contained in a statement on Monday by Professor Ishaq Akintola, its president.


It reads: “One: Nigerians enjoy a total of eight (cool public holidays in a year. These are Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Id al-Kabir, Id al-Fitr and Maulud an-Nabiyy. Five (5) of the eight holidays belong to Christians (Christmas Day, Boxing Day, 1st January, i.e, New Year Day, Good Friday and Easter Monday). Only three (3) holidays belong to Muslims, viz, Id al-Kabir, Id al-Fitr and Maulud an-Nabiyy.

”Restructuring should give Muslims 1st Muharram. This will bring the total number of Muslim holidays to four while Christian holidays remain five.

”Two: Christian marriages contracted inside churches or registries are held sacrosanct everywhere in Nigeria whereas Muslim marriages (nikah) are not recognized for any official purpose. Muslim couples find themselves in a cul de sac each time they presented their Islamic marriage certificates for official purposes. It is paradoxical that in a democracy, one marriage conducted by a religious group is acceptable while the other is not. What kind of constitution is Nigeria using?

”Islamic marriages should be recognized in all official circles where Christian marriages are recognized. The Nigerian Marriage Act (1990) should therefore be revisited.


”Three: Nigeria has a two-day weekend, viz, Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was a half day during the colonial era and Sunday was the only full day at the weekend. However, Saturday was made a full day to favour the Seventh Day Adventists, a Christian denomination during the regime of General Yakubu Gowon, a Christian military ruler. It is very clear, therefore, that the two weekend days recognized in Nigeria belong to Christians while Muslims have none since Friday, the Muslim day of worship, remains a working day.

”It is pertinent to note that Friday was a work-free day until the British brought Christianity and stopped Muslims from enjoying their Allah-given fundamental human right. The relief we are seeking through restructuring is that Friday should be declared free to assume parity with the Christians’ Sunday. While we are not seeking anarchy, we are confident that the Federal Government (FG) has all the paraphernalia of administration to work out the modalities.

”Four: Immigration officials engage in regular stereotyping of Muslims who apply for international passports. They intimidate Muslims particularly at the point of taking pictures. Muslim males are ordered to remove their caps; Imams are coerced into removing their turbans; bearded Muslims are compelled to shave or trim their beards; hijab-wearing Muslim women are made to remove their hijabs or ordered to draw their hijab backwards to reveal their ears. The same scenario plays itself out in driving licence, national identity card offices and during registration for elections.

”In the process, thousands of Muslims have been denied international passports, driving licences and national identity cards while millions have been disenfranchised during elections. The authorities must find a way of stopping the persecution and profiling of Muslims.


”Five: Uniformed groups in Nigeria, including the army, police, uniformed voluntary groups, nurses, the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), students of primary and secondary schools, etc, use uniforms designed by the Christian colonialists. These uniforms should have been reviewed after independence because they only suit the Christians. Some of them constitute breaches to Islamic dress code and offend the sensibility of Muslims who are compelled to wear the uniforms regardless of their inner feeling of resentment.

”In view of the fact that Western countries like Britain, Canada and the United States have designed uniforms with hijab for their female Muslim police, soldiers, students, etc, Nigeria’s restructuring authorities should borrow a leaf from those countries.

”Six: There is no single Shari’ah court in South Western Nigeria where Muslims constitute the majority. This is contrary to what obtained in Yorubaland before the advent of the British. There were Shariah courts in Ede, Iwo, Ikirun, Ibadan, etc. Yoruba Muslims are now compelled to take their civil matters like inheritance, marriage, etc to Christo-Western courts. This is preposterous and unacceptable.

”We demand the establishment of Shariah courts in all South Western states including Edo State where there is a significant percentage of Muslims.

”We call the attention of FG and the restructuring committee of the APC to the above six reliefs. Muslims are in bondage in this country and we believe that restructuring should emancipate people in captivity. APC promised change. This change can only be meaningful to us if it breaks the shackles around our necks. We have begged enough for the restoration of our Allah-given and fundamental human rights. We are tired of begging. Restructuring is about reapportioning the dividends of democracy such that it goes round and it is not restricted to one section.

”Colonial administration was grossly unfair to Muslims. Nigeria was Christianised by Britain and Muslims bore the brunt. We suffered forceful conversion, denial of rightful employment and even worse forms of persecution. But what is most disappointing is the policy of exclusion adopted by post-independence governments.


”On a final note, we demand full integration and full recognition as bona fide citizens of Nigeria, not second or third class citizens. We are the aggrieved party. The British most brutally and most unjustly took all we had from us, giving us nothing in return and offering no relief. It has continued to give us a feeling of rejection, marginalization, denial of the dividends of democracy and lack of a sense of belonging. The time for redress is now and our six-point relief is here for all to digest.”

Religion is a curse to Nigeria!
Our forebears were predominantly traditional worshipers not until the Arabs and the White men came.
Thursday should be declare a public holiday for the traditional worshipers.

Nigeria indeed is a joke!

Is 1st January a Christian holiday?

So marriage registries now belongs to Christians.



Can we also remove Sharia Law from the Constitution?
Sharia is repeated more than 60 times in the 1999 constitution

Islam -20 times in the 1999 Constitution
Christian -0 time in 1999 Constitution

With the poverty associated with Islam all muslims should work untill 9PM on Fridays.
Think about it the 'prophet' commands them to have as many as 4 wives and reproduce fast by getting married early but what does the 'prophet' say about catering for offspring? In order to bridge the poverty gap and maintain the ''prophet's'' commandment they should work for 15 hours everyday.

How is Jan.1st and boxing Day Christian holidays? I still remember d last salah was a 2day holiday, Friday and Monday. So what is going to happen to our currency dat has Islamic/Arabic inscriptions wen not everyone using it is Muslim. Or d fact dat Nigeria is a registered member of Organization of Islamic countries even though there are also predominant Xtian population.

Ishiaq akintola is a jihadist,an open supporter of boko haram and fulani herdsmen. In 2016, he brazenly and openly supported the rape and forceful conversion of ese oruru and exonerated the perpetrators. he is being used by the caliphate to institute the islamic agenda. Nigerians expecially christians must be wary of people like him.

Not surprised, they are spreading their wings gradually by gradually. Some Christians are still sleeping, forming to be tolerant while Islamization agenda is in progress.

I hope my Yoruba Christian brothers are seeing what I am seeing now ?... these miscreants are claiming to be majority in SW . Their tendency to dominate is second to none. Yoruba Christians wake up !!

The constitution guiding judgment in what you term 'Christo-western courts' wasn't written by Christians or majority Christians. You guys are generational parasites.

This Ishaq guy seems to be insane to me. His comments are consistently outrageous. This was the only im.becile openly supporting the paedophile former Zamfara Governor for marrying a 13 year old girl many years ago and they took their disgraceful act to Aljazeera, where Northerm muslims were condemning the act, Prof. Ishaq kept foaming in the mouth that the analyst were trying to rob Yerima of his Islamic right and that he was been persecuted. Such a demented man. We dont need to go far on this restructuring issue let us just divide the country, unfortunately, this cursed man will follow us in the SW, I just wish the North would just adopt him. Look at all the lies and rubbish he kept on spilling.

Why are they not, when the so called christians are taking the back seat politically. More than 75℅ of southwest political leaders are Muslims. Since politics is a game of number, it's easy to assume the muslims are in the majority.
