Misplaced priority

Well he has a point. However, he should note that the gregorian calendar is not necessarily Christian. If it was Christian then Easter would be on the same day of every year. The Gregorian calendar is very recent (1582) and replaces the Julio Calendar.

The Gregorian Calendar is actually the most secular Calendar in the world right now.

This MURIC president is always demanding and feeling entitled to special treatment. We don't operate an Islamic calender system, so why should we be marking out holidays from the calender? Do we even need more public holidays? Even the Mauloud public holiday is absolutely unnecessary imo. It's about time rational Muslims dissociate themselves from this MURIC body

PRESS RELEASE

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) observes that today’s holiday fully consolidated the two-day Christmas holiday and enabled Nigerian Christians to kick off the 2018 Christo-Western Gregorian calendar

However, conscious Nigerian Muslims, particularly stakeholders in the welfare of Muslims as well as the growth and development of Islam in Nigeria, approached today’s holiday with mixed feelings. First and foremost, we express happiness for our Christian neighbours who were able to spend the day giving full practice, expression and manifestation of their faith. On the other hand, we experienced a feeling of despair, isolation and marginalization. Our feeling of marginalization arises from the reality of the Nigerian situation which has conditioned Muslims in the country for religious segregation and subjected them to spiritual apartheid.

Here we are today, enjoying January 1st holiday which was declared by the Federal Government (FG) of Nigeria in recognition of the Christo-Western Gregorian calendar. But the same FG which recognizes this Christian calendar is yet to declare 1st Muharram a public holiday in recognition of the Islamic calendar despite several petitions and appeals to it dating back to the 60s. Surprisingly, some people still complain that Nigeria is Islamised!

The man does not know what he is saying. He does not even understand Islamic principles.

*NO CELEBRATION Except 2 EIDAIN*

حَدَّثَنَا مُوسَى بْنُ إِسْمَاعِيلَ، حَدَّثَنَا حَمَّادٌ، عَنْ حُمَيْدٍ، عَنْ أَنَسٍ، قَالَ قَدِمَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم الْمَدِينَةَ وَلَهُمْ يَوْمَانِ يَلْعَبُونَ فِيهِمَا فَقَالَ ‏‏ مَا هَذَانِ الْيَوْمَانِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏ قَالُوا كُنَّا نَلْعَبُ فِيهِمَا فِي الْجَاهِلِيَّةِ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏"‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ قَدْ أَبْدَلَكُمْ بِهِمَا خَيْرًا مِنْهُمَا يَوْمَ الأَضْحَى وَيَوْمَ الْفِطْرِ ‏"‏ ‏.‏"



Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

When the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) came to Medina, the people had two days on which they engaged in games. He asked: What are these two days (what is the significance)? They said: We used to engage ourselves on them in the pre-Islamic period. The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Allah has substituted for them something better than them, the day of sacrifice and the day of the breaking of the fast.

Dz man is a professor, am prettily disappointed in him. How many holidays are we going to be having in Nigeria? Even the ones be declared are being short changing the nation's productivity.

Hello,

You don't get the point he is making!
Calendars we use in the world is 2(Gregorian and Hijri calendar) Solar and lunar based calendars respectively, In islam we use Hijri calendar and also have a new year.

He's also pushing that Hijri calendar new year ought to be celebrated too with a public holiday. Understand the point before criticism and insulting anyone.
Meanwhile he is a professor and very intelligent. what degree have you attained to insult him ?
He is Jamb registrar if you don't know.


I disagree with you. He categorically said,the new year is meant for Christians. If you will be sincere enough,is the new year a christian holiday?

To me it is not because your calender @ work,schl etc changes to 01-01-2018 because of the calender we use so,why ask for another new year. Will the calender change? NO,it won't so,what's the essence of declearing another new year if not trying to cause confusion.

These people are just irritating. They're a serious nuisance.

When did everything Western or secular become Christian? Why should Nigeria recognize the Islamic calendar? They expect the country to be operating two calendars? Are they mad? These idiots need severe flogging. Imagine the stupidity. When they're in the majority, they oppress others by imposing their standards. When they're not the dominant party, they still demand for SPECIAL RIGHTS.

Nigeria is a Secular State for Christ's sake.
Re: Give Muslims Their Own 1st January Public Holiday - MURIC by thawgy(m): 9:06am On Jan 02
There are only 3 days of Christian Nigerian holidays
There are about 5 or so Muslim Nigerian holidays
I wonder when Muslims will divert from their usual victim play role.. It is stale in 2018

This Prof.. is an illiterate. How much has religious bigotry helped Islamic nations. They want three days weekend. .When we should be asking for eight working days, scrap existing useless holidays, cultivate attitude of serious working culture to catch up the developed nations.

But what's the name of that your village? Don't lie pls. I am sure google will tell me the numbers of professor you have in your village.

Although those are by the way, What am saying is you need to learn to respect your elders. Professor is not a joke!, you will never get there if you do not deserve it!

He is neither unintelligent nor a confusionist. He is putting on display classic Taqiyya. The goal is to achieve a Caliphate System in Nigeria where Sharia is it all over! A type of The Saudi Arabia system of government where freedom of Worship et al is not it. Truth is, Islam takes no prisoners! Islam is an either or proposition. In practice and reality “there is no compulsion in religion” is classic Taqqiya. Study the times. Watch the times.

Mr Yusuf, don't be a doofus. Gregorian Calendar is no longer a "Christian" calendar, and Nigeria is a Secular Pro-Western state, not an Islamic State. So, celebrate your new year in your cubicle and leave the Nigerian State out of it. Your Islamic calendar is irrelevant as far as the State is concerned.

If you're not a mumu, you would have realized that not all Professors are intelligent, and that appeal to authority can be a symptom of stupidity.

Your approach will make it a free for all. Wat will be unleashed. After the war mopping up arms will be another wahala. These guys should be confronted with superior arguments, counter propaganda for their own propaganda, Christian should get more involved in politics.

For every verbal attack on the church, hundred should follow but never resort to arms.
