Kano court sentences man to death for blasphemy

A Kano upper Sharia Court has sentenced Abdulaziz Dauda, popularly known as Abdul Inyass, to death by hanging after finding him guilty of blasphemy.

The court upheld the death sentence passed on Mr. Dauda by a lower Sharia court.

Mr. Dauda was arrested on August 18, 2015 in Abuja and taken to Kano, where he faced trial on a two-count charge of blasphemy and inciting crisis that led to the burning of a Sharia court and some vehicles.

The man reportedly made some blasphemous remarks against Prophet Muhammad during a Maulud festival held on June 31 last year.

State counsel, Lamido Sorondinki, said five witnesses, including the police, had testified before the court.

Counsel to the defendant, who craved anonymity, neither commented on the ruling nor possibility of appealing the judgement.

Five other accused persons had also received death sentence by the court in June.

    The guy should have denied been a muslim then we see what happens, or they will go ahead and sentence a none muslim in the sharia court.

      Actually, they could then charge him with al-riddah (apostasy) and still sentence him to death.

    If a man is saying he is last prophet, mouthpiece of God and hence God incarnate, a final seal on spiritual innovation, then his life must be subjected to rigorous scrutiny because he invited such by himself. Evidence from the Quran and the Hadith shows Muhammed to be a rapist and monger who attacked people for not worshipping God according to his baseless dictates, raping women to convert them. If Mohammed was not a criminal then he was mentally deranged or challenged.

    Why should anyone be executed for pointing out such an obvious truth?

      Guy I declare fatwa on you…you must die for blasphemy…so decrees al Qur’an…
