Zamfara Killing: Blasphemy is not Unlawful in Nigeria - NASFAT

4 years ago

The Chief Missioner, Nasrul-lahi-li Fathi Society, Alhaji Abdullahi Akinbode, on Tuesday reacted to the brutal murder of 8 people in Zamfara state after a student allegedly blasphemed Islamic beliefs and the Prophet Muhammad.

“I have not been fully briefed about the incident. But whatever the case may be, life is sacred. God has not given anybody the right to take life, except the authority and the authority is the government of a nation if one has committed a crime that carries the death penalty.

“No religion preaches that life should be taken except there is war. But there is no war and there can never be war. The stand of NASFAT is that life is sacred. The culprits should be apprehended and be made to face justice.

“Nigeria is a multi-religious country. You can only talk of blasphemy where there is one religion. A blasphemy case will only be established in jurisprudence if the state makes a rule that the state shall be a state of one religion. Blasphemy is not unlawful in Nigeria because it is a multi-religious state.”
