Christian Youths Breakfast With Muslims In Kaduna by Phemour: 8:12pm On Jul 22, 2012
A source in Ungwar Sarkin Musulmi, which housesthe famous Sultan Bello Mosque, has disclosed that about 50 Christian young men last night stormed the mosque and in furtherance of the Muslim Ramadan, broke the Ramadan fast with Muslim youths as part of ongoing efforts to strengthen unity, peace and coexistence betweenboth faiths in the troubled State.
The source said that there was consternation when the Christians arrived premises of the Mosque and proceeded to meet their hosts,and after exchanging pleasantries participated in ending the Ramadan fasting for the day as Muslims in the Mosque watched.
The leader of the Christians, Obadiah Dijji, according to the source said that they decided to visit the historic Mosque and break fast with theirMuslim friends due to many reasons.
He said, “Christianity is not a violent religion and does not teach hate and restiveness, and it is in that regard that we are here. Again, this is historic this is Sultan Bello where Sir Ahmadu Bello prayed and he was a good man who preached peace. This is where late Sheik Abubakar Gumi preached until his death.
We are here for peace and may God give Nigeria peace.”
It would be recalled that on June 17, a series of crises erupted in the state when suicide bombers attacked Churches in Zaria and Kaduna town. The Boko Haram sect claimed responsibility for the bombings. The attack led to irate Christian youthsattacking Muslims, and after two days, the Muslims also retaliated in areas where they are dominant.
Dijji also said that the Muslim youths have paid a similar solidarity visit to Christians at the ChristianAssociation of Nigeria secretariat.

That's a good move. They need to work together to make kaduna a great place like lagos where both xtains and muslims live together as one. Let them begin a new way of life like the yorubas and together they can defeat boko haram members, and kaduna will be a peaceful place to live again.

the name sheik Abubarka Gumi represent everything that connote any form of ism between christains and muslim in kaduna state during the nineties when the sheik was still alive. he preaches hate, bigotry, fanatism in the media especially Ditv. For anybody to identify with GUMI as a great personality calls for serious concern as these group cannot be christains from kaduna preiod.
