Killings in Nigeria not religious -NASFAT

The Nashirullahi Fathi Society of Nigeria
(NASFAT) has condemned the killings in Benue,
Taraba and Nassarawa states.
The President of NASFAT, Engr. Kamil Bolarinwa,
said in a statement signed by the Publicity
Secretary of the society, Alhaji Banji Busari, that
at a time when everyone had heaved a sigh of
relief about the successes against Boko Haram
insurgency, Nigerians were again jolted with the
sad news of the killing of some clerics and several
others Tuesday in Benue State.
He said, “Islam as a religion holds lives so sacred
that its Holy Book decrees that whoever kills a
soul is like he has killed the entire mankind
(Q5:32). While we seek collective efforts of all and
sundry to ensure that peace reigns supreme in all
parts of our dear country, caution should however
be exercised not to ascribe religious colouration
into this senseless killing. Anyone who breaks law
and order should be dealt with within the ambit of
the law, regardless of his race, tribe or religion.
Moreover, the perpetrators have never come out
to say they are fighting religious war, nor has any
intelligence report pointed in that direction.”
