The Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria has demanded that the Kano State government do the right thing which is execution of singer, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, who was found guilty of blasphemy some weeks back.
In a statement released by the Shari’ah council’s Secretary, Nafi’u Baba-Ahmad, it said the death is in no way wrong, as it is line with the tenets of Islam and what is permissible in the culture of the state.
It also warned human rights organizations to desist from meddling in the matter, which was none of its business.
The statement reads, “The calls by some so-called human rights groups to pardon the culprit should not deter the state government from doing the right thing.
“This case is purely an Islamic affair, in consonance with the religion, culture and wishes of not only the people of Kano, but the majority of the population of Nigeria who are Muslims.
“The council further wishes to emphatically remind all Nigerians especially the secular human rights groups that the judgement is in line with the Supreme Court judgement.”Photo Credit: Twitter
