Muslims group in Kano attends church service, calls to shun ethno- religious violence

Muslims in Kano yesterday visited churches to show solidarity with Christians as part of the effort to sensitize Nigerians on the need to shun ethno-religious violence. 

The Leader of the Muslims who visited the churches in the state on Sunday, under the platform of Kano covenant group, Engineer Bashir Ishaq Bashir said there is need for Christians and Muslims to live together in peace as they described the two religions as faiths with doctrines that abhor violence. 

Addressing the congregations in various churches during service, Engineer Bashir noted that though different in practice, Islam and Christianity have a semblance which ultimate aim is to draw people nearer together as they love and cherish one another. 

“We are here to deliver a message of hope, a message of peace, a message of solidarity”.

He stated that Muslims all over Kano remain at peace with their Christians counterparts, while urging the worshippers not to panic and resist inflammatory messages that are capable of bringing a break-down of peace and order. 

According to him, “We must desist from rumours and spreading of falsehood. No doubt Muslims have wronged their Christians brothers, and Christian brothers have wronged their Muslim brothers. 

Speaking also, CAN Chairman Bishop Ransom emphasized the need for all stakeholders to join hands and ensure that peace reign in Kano as violence which could lead to destruction of lives and property under any guise should be totally discouraged. 

Bishop Bello thanked Kano state government for its support and encouragement to the struggle to ensure that Kano remain peaceful and safe, while urging all and sundry to move about their businesses without fear or apprehension.
