Fayose hates Muslims, his Islamic regalia sinful – MURIC


Ekiti State  –   Muslim Rights Concern has condemned the Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, for appearing on Id ground dressed in Islamic regalia in the just concluded sallah celebration.
MURIC said Fayose also delivered a politically motivated speech at the event, calling his action as “executive hocus pocus, highly sacrilegious and unduly provocative and excessively dramatic.
Professor Ishaq Akintola, MURIC president, in a statement said Governor Fayose cannot pretend to be a friend of Ekiti Muslims since he has previously done more harm than good.
The statement said: “He has delivered several anti-Muslim speeches and uttered several hate pronouncements targeted at Nigerian Muslims. His general attitude and body language to Muslims of Ekiti belie his status as the state governor.
“He has also demolished mosques out of sheer desire to eliminate all Islamic landmarks from Ekiti. So who is Fayose deceiving?”
The group frowned at the fact that the governor could use a religious platform to deliver a political speech stressing that the act is forbidden and disrespectful.
It stated: “The fact that he offered advice concerning who Muslims should vote for in the coming Ekiti 2018 election in his speech at the Id ground reveals Fayose’s real motive. But that is his undoing.
“Delivering a political speech in a serene atmosphere and on a sacred ground is sacrilegious. Fayose has abused the turban and arrogantly violated Islamic wardrobe etiquette. It is an insult for him to have so boldly dressed himself up like an Imam on Id ground.
“Only a titled Muslim leader or an Islamic scholar can dress like that. Fayose has failed to respect a major Islamic decorum. Can any political leader put on a pastor’s cassock and clerical collar without causing uproar?
“Fayose has shown that he has no respect for Muslims or their religion. He derides Ekiti Muslims yet he tries to con them to vote for his party.”
The group further suggested that anyone coming for any elective position should be demanded by the electorate to bring in a certificate of psychiatric examination for the voters to know their mental status.(THE EAGLE )
