NSCIA Criticizes CAN, Provides List Of Justices And Their Religions

The attention of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) has been drawn to the insinuations and vituperations that trailed the shortlisting of 20 Justices-designate by the Federal Judicial Service Commission (FJSC). It would be noted that except it is compelled to do so, the Council has often resisted joining issues with the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) as a matter of principle. This is because CAN has proved, times without number, its morbid hatred for Islam and Muslims, its remarkable capacity for destructive mischief, its dexterous use of scurrilous propaganda and its predilection for always being economical with the truth as part of the sinister strategy of heating up the polity anytime a Muslim is at the helm of affairs. It would be recalled that n...

Hijab Crisis: Rename Muslim, Christian Schools, MURIC Tells Kwara Govt

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has urged the Kwara State government to rename schools whose authorities ‘have refused to obey court pronouncements’ and government’s directives on the use of hijab in schools. The MURIC Director, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, gave the advice on Saturday in a statement. “The (Kwara) state government must rename those controversial schools. They may be given names derived from the areas in which they are located.

The Kwara State chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria has kicked against the state government’s approval of the use of hijab by female Muslim pupils in its public schools.

Outrage As Muslim And Christian Lesbian Partners Wed

A Muslim and Christian lesbian partners have left tongues wagging on social media after getting married.   The photos of the unique couple were shared online on Sunday, September 29.   In some of the wedding photos shared on social media by a lady simply identified as Nola, one of the partners is seen wearing a hijab.   This has infuriated many Muslims on the micro-blogging platform to rain fire at one of the partners who happens to be a Muslim.

Lawmakers told Reuters that the new penal code, which would replace a Dutch colonial-era set of laws, was a long overdue expression of Indonesian independence a...
