Don’t link religion to terrorism, Sultan warns

Don’t link religion to terrorism, Sultan warns
The Sultan of Sokoto and President-General, Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, has advised Nigerians against giving a religious ‘toga’ to negative happenings in the country.
The revered monarch spoke at a meeting with religious leaders, security agencies, communities, journalists and NGOs at his palace.
He blamed the elite for most negative trends, saying their selfishness and uncompromising attitude were the cause of the major problems in the country. “Whenever one loses power, he creates problem, and the masses are always at the receiving end,” he said.
Abubakar noted that everything had been politicised, and that Muslims feel more marginalised “only that they were not complaining”.
He lamented that anything negative is always attributed to Muslims, Fulani (herdsmen) and Hausa, though when crimes are committed elsewhere, it is not linked to religion, ethnicity and region.”

The monarch, however, said Nigeria remains a beautiful country and its people love one another.
He advised leaders, particularly the elite, to desist from setting innocent people against themselves.
“Let them bring issues that cause debate but don’t carry weapons against one another. Life lost never comes back; let us sit together, discuss our problems and see how to overcome them,” he said.
Sultan Abubakar urged the people to stop blaming Fulani for every attack, saying “criminals are found anywhere, in any religion and tribe.
