Muslim group sends crucial message to Remi Tinubu after Islamic cleric called for her death

The Muslim Media Watch Group of Nigeria, MMWG, a body of Muslim professionals in various fields, has urged Oluremi Tinubu not to be distracted by the provocative, irresponsible, and condemnable statements from a particular Islamic cleric.

Recall that a video surfaced where the Islamic scholar called for the murder of the First Lady for being a pastor, adding that Allah said she must be killed.

“Now, Tinubu, his wife is an infidel. As an infidel, she is a leader among the infidels.

“God’s judgement says she must be killed. She’s a pastor… a leader of infidels (Christians); Allah says they must be killed…,” he said.

Reacting to the video via a statement, MMWG called for the immediate arrest and prosecution of the Islamic cleric.

The group called on the security agencies to act without further delay while describing the cleric as “one of the bad elements in Nigerian society and not a true scholar of Islam.”

MMWG maintained that “at this trying period of the nation, some irresponsible, incorrigible, and unpatriotic elements must not be allowed to use religion to cause chaos in Nigeria.”

Reflecting on the teachings of Islam regarding Jews and Christians, the group stated categorically that the Holy Qur’an revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) described them as Ahlul-Kitab, meaning “The People of the Book,” and Muslims are enjoined to live with them in peace and tranquility.

It further explained that “The People of the Book” means those who believe in the book revealed to Prophet Moses (i.e., Al-Taorah) and Jesus Christ (i.e., Injil, The Bible).

“There is nowhere in the Holy Qur’an or Hadith where harming or killing of Jews, Christians, and even unbelievers is permitted. God said we should continue to live together in peace and harmony.

“In the lifetime of the Holy Prophet Muhammad in Madina, the Holy Prophet allowed the Christians to worship in their way in his Mosque during the course of a community meeting which brought Muslims and Christians together,” MMWG maintained.
