Muslims Join Christians in Church Service

As a deliberate step to rebuild confidence and heal the festering relationship between adherents of the two major religions in the country following attacks by Boko Haram on places of worship, Muslims in Kano Sunday visited churches and worshipped with Christians to foster religious tolerance.
Leader of the Muslims, who visited the churches under the platform of Kano Covenant Group, Mr. Bashir Ishaq Bashir, said the step was taken because there was the need for Christians and Muslims to live together in peace as they described the two religions as faith with doctrines that abhor violence.
Addressing the congregation in the various churches during service, Bashir said though there might be differences in practice, Islam and Christianity have a semblance which ultimate aim is to draw people nearer together as they love and cherish one another.

He said Muslims all over Kano would remain at peace with the Christians and urged the worshippers not to panic and resist inflammatory messages that were capable of bringing a breakdown of law and order. Read more
