According to NASFAT, is a religion which promotes people’s good and not the other way round.
The group made this known in a statement issued by NASFAT’s Chief Missioner, Abdul Azeez Onike, and signed by the group’s Publicity Secretary, Abdul Akeem-Yusuf on Saturday.
“Religion and all its paraphernalia meant to worship Allah are for man and not man for those,” Mr Onike said, further condemning the gruesome killing of the late Deborah Samuel in Sokoto by Muslim fanatics.
“In the case of any disrespectful act on those religious paraphernalia or on Allah, capital punishment is not the answer but civilly calling the person involved to order by making him or her understand that he or she committed sacrilege for him to refrain from such and not to kill,” he said.
NASFAT further appealed against a reprisals and unnecessary discrimination of a particular tribe or religion due to the tragic incident.
