Igbo Muslims Are Not Fleeing Safe – Islamic Group ‘ MURIC’ says As They Receive threats

 

Igbo Muslims Are Not Fleeing Safe – Islamic Group ‘ MURIC’ says As They Receive threats The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has claimed that many Muslims of Igbo extraction have fled their homes to safer places after receiving de@th threats from fellow Igbos for daring to convert to Islam.

 

According to MURIC, several mosques located in the South East have also been burnt down because of hate speech.

 

The group said this while calling on authors of hate speech and fake news to “rewind, soften up and show remorse.”

 

MURIC urged the government to begin deradicalization of hate speech and fake news in order to douse tension in the country.

 

It said that if not brought under control and urgently too, the crisis caused by fake news and hate speech may result in a nationwide pogrom.

 

MURIC fingered prominent pastors and opposition politicians among those behind hate speech.

 

This was contained in a statement signed by its director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, and made available to NAIJALOADED on Monday.

 

“Already, fiery, combustible, and inflammatory speeches have led to the killing of Muslims and Northerners in some parts of the South East and South West,”

 

The statement added.

 

“Many Muslims of Igbo extraction have fled their homes to safer places after receiving death threats from fellow Igbos for daring to convert to Islam.

 

“Several mosques located in the South East have been set on fire. Yet all these began after the commencement of hate speech and fake news just about four years ago.

 

“Unfortunately, the Federal Government’s attempt to bring the situation under control was rebuffed by those behind the plot to destabilize Nigeria…”

 

The group said.
