Military Uniforms Should be Banned Too if Hijab Must Be Banned – JIBWIS Leader
The leader of the popular sect Jama’atu Izalatul Bid’ah Wa’ikamatu Sunna (JIBWIS), Alhaji Bala Lau has cautioned authorities in the country over the purported move by some Nigerians influencing government to ban the use of veil [Hijab] on muslim women.
Alhaji Lau, who dropped the challenge in Gusau, Zamfara state capital to newsmen said, the use of hijab alone could not be seen as threat to security considering multitude number of times that the military uniform were being used to launch attacks by insurgents.
According to him, the recent used of veil by some women suicide bombers in the country should not taken as reason for authorities to consider ban on veil as part of formidable solution to security challenges, adding that, “It is on the record that suicide bombers were found using police and military uniforms to launch attacks on innocent communities, and no move was made to agitate for changing neither police or army uniform”.
He noted that, the use of veil is quiet obligatory as that of daily prayers, fasting, and hajj exercise to all Muslim women and a fulfilment of one of the Islamic religious injunction which must not be comprised for whatever reason, therefore, even if the ban would apply, should also be on security uniforms”.
“We are absolutely educated by the holy Qur”an that, the insurgency is terrorism, and terrorism is devil’s, while Islam was sent down on earth to preach against actions led by Satan, for this and other reasons, not only JIBWIS but all other true Islamic sects have in totality condemned the ongoing insurgents in the country and religiously consider it Un-Islamic”, Bala Lau stressed.
The sect national Chairman was in Zamfara state for national preaching session of the JIBWIS scheduled to hold in Kaura Namoda local government area, stressed that the national preaching session was organised to re-awaking Muslim on the current security challenges as well as the need for Muslim communities to intensify prayers for the restoration of peace and unity across the nation.
On the 2015 general elections, Bala Lau has appealed to the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] to ensure free and fair elections being the only and heard way to save the country from falling into the darkest shelves of history.
