Trumps comment on killing of Christians, capable of causing further division in Nigeria— Muslim Students reacts

The Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria
(MSSN) has faulted statement credited to
United States President Donald Trump on the
killing of Christians in Nigeria.
The Amir (President) of the MSSN in Lagos
State, Dr Saheed Ashafa in a press statement
said Trump’s statement would cause further
division in Nigeria.
During Buhari’s visit to the Whiet House,Trump
said the“killing of Christians in Nigeria was
unacceptable” to the American government.
Reacting, Ashafa considered Trump’s comment
as one-sided and uncomplimentary, warning
Buhari to be cautious of relationship with the
US.
The Muslim students’ leader alleged that
Trump’s comment signalled his hatred for
Muslims and Islam in Nigeria.
He said, “Trump’s offer shows that he is myopic
and uncivilised. The pronouncement to help
fight killings of Christians in a nation where
innocent souls are wasted without recourse to
their affiliations is a call to separatism.
“One would wonder if Trump is not aware or
deliberately ignored the murder of several
Muslims in a mosque at the University of
Maiduguri, or those killed in mosques in Yobe
and Zamfara; and many other parts of the
country.
“We should know that the offer is a reflection of
Trump’s hatred for Islam and Muslims. Such
offer at this point in time is divisive, ‘unafrican‘
and insincere.
“World leaders should ignore insinuations that
Muslims are not against terrorism, it would be
more beneficial to tackle insurgency with
utmost neutrality.”
“Let me reiterate that as Muslims we condemn
and reject all forms of terrorism, insurgency and
oppression in whatever name being perpetrated. “We should also remember that in Nigeria, most families are composed of Christians and Muslims alike, just as we also have other faithful. “Trump’s call for separatism when the world is advocating for collectivism is not a healthy offer.”
