The Muslim Community in the State of Osun wants justice to prevail on the recent clash between Muslim and masqueraders at a Mosque in Osogbo, the state capital.
It warned that if justice is not served on the matter, it might portend a great danger for religious harmony and the peaceful co-existence of the state.
The OSMC President, Alhaji Mustafa Olawuyi stated this in an address at a Colloquium as part of activities to usher Hijrah 1433 A.H.
Olawuyi said, “The recent clash between some Masqueraders and Muslims in the state is a big blow against Islam and we Muslims in the state will not relent in our efforts to make justice prevail on this matter. We will not take it easy if we are been cheated on this issue because Islam preaches about justice.
“How will someone who is alleged of killing a Muslim be going around freely on the street and still boasting that nothing will happen to him. But, if we didn’t get justice here on earth, we know he cannot go Scot free hereafter.
“However, we call on the state Government of Osun to critically look into this matter by not let it die down. They must ensure justice for muslims ”
Speaking further, The Head, Osun Muslim Community called on stakeholders in the state to not victimise any female Muslim students using Hijab as it is part of their right.
He also urged examination bodies not to fix examinations on Fridays to allow Muslim students observe Jumat prayer.
Speaking at the event, an Islamic scholar and academic, Professor AbdulFatai Makinde charged all Muslims to be united on issues affecting them.
He adduced ongoing agitations for self determination across the country to the citizen’s lack of trust in political and religious leaders.
