The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has denounced the murder of Deborah Samuel who was allegedly accused of blasphemy.
MURIC’s Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, said on Friday that the murder was barbaric, and illegal, Daily Post reports.
Furthermore, he said Deborah Samuel should have been reported to security agents by those aggrieved.
He said mob killing is not proper in a modern society, and no one has the right to take law into his hands.
“The Glorious Qur’an compares the killing of a single person to the killing of the whole of humanity just as it compares the saving of a life to the rescue of all homo sapiens (Qur’an 5:32).
“In like manner, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) himself condemned all acts of violence and advocated peaceful conduct at all times,” he said.
The organisation appealed to the Sokoto State Police Command to investigate Deborah’s killing properly.
Moreover, MURIC warned against isolated condemnation of the incident.
“We frown at the recent burning last week of a truck fully loaded with cows in the South East as well as the killing of many Muslims of South East origin by their Igbo brothers in the same South East.”
