Blasphemy: Muslim Lawyers Support Kano Singer's Death Sentence by Ababbio: 1:34pm On Aug 16, 2020
Kano State Chapter of the Muslim Lawyers Association of Nigeria, has lauded the Sharia's Court for sentencing 22-year-old singer, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu to death by hanging for blaspheming against Prophet Muhammad(SAW).

The Nation report that, the singer is a resident of Sharifai quarters in Kano municipal, was sued for “insulting religious creed, contrary to Section 382 (6) of Kano State Shari’a Penal Code Law 2000.”

Sharif-Aminu was said to have sing a song that blaspheme against Prophet Muhammad, which went viral in March 2020. He was however, arraigned before the Sharia court in August, having found guilty, the prisiding Juge Khadi Aliyu Muhammad Kani, ordered that he be hanged until he dies.

In a statement issued the Chairman of the Muslim Lawyers, Muhammad Sani Garba Esq, the lawyer said the judge was right in his judgment in which he convicted and sentenced the accused to death without prejudice because the Supreme Court had set a precedent in the case of Abubakar Shalla Vs State in 2007.

Other supporters of the judgment are Kano State council of Friday mosque Imams and the Kano State Hisbah Board, and have also appealed to the State governor Abdullahi Ganduje to sign the execution of the penalty. MULAN also urged Ganduje to sign the death warrant. The governor has not reacted to the ruling, yet.

The statement reads:

“The position of the Law under Shari’a is that any sane and adult muslim, who insults, defames, or utters words or acts which are capable of bringing into disrepute, odium, contempt of the holy Prophet, such a person has committed a serious crime punishable by death…

“The general public should understand that Shari’a is a Muslim Law applicable only to Muslims. Any person who accepts to be Muslim must obey the provisions of Shari’a, whether it pleases him or not. Those who are not followers of Islamic faith should be reminded that the constitution of Nigeria guarantees Nigerians to practice and observe the religion of their choice and be bound by its Laws and principles…”

“We urge the Executive arm of Kano State government to ensure strict compliance to the Judgement, as part of its commitment towards proper implementation of Sharia.”

Law is law, no matter whose ox is gored, but this is the place equity should come in to mitigate the harshness of the judgment, but if this is done, the veil in their eyes will be uncovered...

BTW, why will you kill a man for insulting a fellow man, cause Islam recognize Muhammad, as a man, not even a god or an angel

Islam is the only well structured religion in the world,it invoke disciplines in its followers,it is guided by rules and regulations. More so Muhammad is human being and not God,in a situations where you blasphemy against him and knowing that he is not alive to defend himself,if found guilty ,face the punishment because justice must be seen to be served.And some of you that said Book haram members are forgiving, this have to do with government of the day,imaging if they had brought them before sharia court,it is death if found guilty unlike your convectional court that will say they temper justice with mercy.Islam is all about justice,kill the guy to serve as deterrent to others.

Muslims love calling for oppressive government when they're in charge of a country.
Most of the people calling for hate speech bill are Muslims.

When they bring in tyranny they will start running out as refugees, where ever they found themselves as refugees they will start calling for the same nonsense Islamic law that chase them out.

Most Muslims here don't have problem with Buhari's government.

Islam is dangerous.

Nigeria is govern by two constitution;
1. The 1999 Nigerian constitution is used to rule non Muslims.
2. Sharia law is used to rule Nigeria.

In the eyes of Northern Nigeria, Sharia is supreme to 1999 constitution of Nigeria which governs the lives of infidels (Non Muslims).
Those who have ears let them hear and see they utter deceit of ONE NIGERIA.

But has any pastor or "Christian lawyer" condemned a person who sins against the holy ghost to death?, The forgiveness or unforgiveness of the sin against the holy ghost is between the sinner and his God. And by the way that passage is quoted out of context, it doesn't mean there's no forgiveness for a particular sin. I can't go into all that today Sha.. and by the way I am an atheist who studies the Bible, quaran and other religious books
