New Year Yuletides Unfair, Undemocratic To Muslims- MURIC

The Muslim Rights Concern has said that the New Year celebrations according to the Gregorian calendar are “unfair, unjust and undemocratic” to Muslims in Nigeria. THE PUNCH reports.

In a statement presented by Prof Ishaq Akintola, MURIC Director, the group charged the Federal Government to declare the 1st of Muharram Hijrah, which is the first day in the Islamic calendar, as a public holiday to favour Muslims. Information Guide Nigeria

Akintola stated that the regime of the President, Major Gen, Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), supported “the Christianisation of Nigeria” by giving more regard to the Christian celebration while casting the Islamic one aside”.

“As usual, the Federal Government (FG) declared 1st January 2022, a public holiday in recognition of the first day of the Christian Gregorian calendar”.

“But because the day fell on a Saturday, FG created an alternative by declaring the following Monday a public holiday”. jamb results

“This was an aberration and a gross injustice because Nigerian Muslims have been demanding the declaration of the first day of the Islamic calendar as a holiday for more than 20 years to no avail.

“It simply means that FG under President Muhammadu Buhari is also supporting the Christianisation of Nigeria. It considers the first day of the Christian calendar as sacred while the first day of the Islamic calendar is regarded as unimportant.

“MURIC frowns at this lopsided arrangement. It is unfair, unjust and undemocratic. We demand an immediate review of FG’s holiday policy.

“We demand the declaration of the first day of the Islamic calendar as a holiday to justify the 1st January holiday that is declared annually by FG.”
