The Chairman of AMIN, Sheik Ibrahim Saleh quoting various portions of the Qur’an, the Assembly denounced the Christmas bomb attacks and killing of innocent souls under any guise, saying “ Islam has prohibited any assault on souls, organs and bloodshed. “Islam also ordains the protection of the brain, one’s dignity, lineage, properties as well as protection of the environment where all creatures live together. The recent bloody bombardments are unacceptable in all religions and faiths. There is no compulsion in religion”, he said.
AMIN called on all stakeholders to fear Allah in everything they do as Allah would punish people for their bad intentions. The Assembly also advised both religious and political leaders to avoid inflammatory statements capable of worsening the already tensed situation in the country. AMIN applauded the security measures and awareness taken by the Federal Government especially on the state of emergency in some local governments in the country and urged it to step it up.
