Agabus Pwanagba, Jos
As the Ramadan fasting is due to commence, the National Chairman, Council of Ulama of Jammatul Izalatul Bidia Waikamatu Sunnah (JIBWIS), Shiekh Sani Yahaya Jingir has raised alarm that terrorists are planning to use Islamic veil (Hijab) in launching their evil attack on the people during the Ramadam period.
Jingir made the disclosure on Friday at JIBWIS national seminar in Jos, Plateau State.
He said, “Reliable information had reached us that some non-Muslims had purchased large quantity of ‘Hijab and Jallabiya’ in some markets in Jos. We have gathered that terrorists and their cohorts the enemies of peace have resorted to use our Islamic mode of dressing to launch their devilish act of attacking innocent souls during the forthcoming Ramadan Tafsir where Muslims faithful gathered.
“We observed that this new trend is targeted at demonizing our Islamic way of life and poses a threat to our women, as our women cannot stop using Hijab because it is one of our religious rites. No amount of propaganda would stop us from using Hijab.
“I urge all religious and community leaders to educate their followers and device means of taking precautions steps against the terrorists.
The Islamic cleric frowned at the recent media clamp down by the military, describing it as a bad omen for the country’s development.
He urged media houses and practitioners to remain steadfast in discharging their responsibilities and continue to focus on what will promote peace and unity in the country.
