DUTSE – Mixed reactions among Muslims in Dutse, have trailed the cancelation of durbar during the celebration of this year’s  Eid-el Fitri.

President of Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Abubakar Sa’ad, had announced the cancelation of any gathering or durbar because of the challenges in the country.

While some people lamented the celebrations would be “colourless” without horse-riding, said the decision to cancel durbar and any gathering, was in the best interest of everybody.

A Dutse resident, Malam Aminu Sani, told NAN he was not happy the durbar was cancelled.

According to him, horse riding during Sallah or any festival, adds “colour to the celebration”. “I cannot remember the last time there was Sallah celebration without durbar. I and my children miss our favourite aspect of the occasion,” he said.

Another resident, Mr  Sanusi Shehu, said most people in the North viewed Sallah and horse riding as inseparable things. “Men, and children usually come out to witness the durbar. Most of them might have been waiting patiently for the D-day, unfortunately, is never to be,” he said.

However, some felt that even without the cancellation of the durbar, -conscious persons ought to avoid any place of gathering, for obvious reasons.

of such , Alhaji Adamu Kudai, said the cancelation of durbar by Islamic leader, was in order, considering the challenge in the country. “We are all witnesses to what had occurred in some major towns of the country,just few days to eid-el-fitr . The question of whether or not the cancellation of durbar was justified does not arise at all,” he argued.

In his contribution, Malam Rufai Abubakar told NAN that the decision taken by the Council was aimed at protecting Muslims and in the country.

He urged Nigerians to be vigilant and report any suspicious move or character, to the law enforcement agents. (NAN)
