Fayose Committed a sin by wearing Islamic Regalia – Muslim Rights Group

by on September 7, 2017

President of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has described as sinful, the act of Ekiti state governor, Ayo Fayose a Christian, wearing the Muslim regalia, to the Eid ground for the Sallah prayers on Friday, September 1st. A photo of Fayose wearing the Islamic regalia above.

In a statement released yesterday, Akintola condemned Fayose for using the religious gathering to deliver political a speech which according to Akintola is an “executive hocus pocus, highly sacrilegious and unduly provocative. It is Act I, Scene I in the Theater of the Absurd.” Akintola said Fayose came to the Eid ground to campaign for the next person who would take over his office.

He added that electorates now have to demand a psychiatric test to be conducted on those that wish to assume political office.

His statement in part reads “He has delivered several anti-Muslim speeches. His general attitude and body language to Muslims of Ekiti belie his status as the state governor.

He has also demolished mosques out of sheer desire to eliminate all Islamic landmarks from Ekiti. So who is Fayose deceiving? The fact that he offered advice concerning who Muslims should vote for in the coming Ekiti 2018 election in his speech at the Id ground reveals Fayose’s real motive. But that is his undoing. Delivering a political speech in a serene atmosphere and on a sacred ground is sacrilegious.

Fayose has also politicized religion. Who are Fayose’s advisers for Allah’s sake? Or is it that he does not listen to them? It is most likely that he doesn’t listen to anyone. Like every bully, Fayose acts on instinct. He tries to think later though.

Fayose has abused the turban and arrogantly violated Islamic wardrobe etiquette. It is an insult for him to have so boldly dressed himself up like an Imam on Id ground. Only a titled Muslim leader or an Islamic scholar can dress like that. Fayose has failed to respect a major Islamic decorum.

Can any political leader put on a pastor’s cassock and clerical collar without causing uproar? Fayose has shown that he has no respect for Muslims or their religion.

He derides Ekiti Muslims yet he tries to con them to vote for his party. On a final and very serious note, we suggest that in view of our experience in the Third Republic, it has become necessary, from now onward, for the electorate to demand certificate of psychiatric examination from candidates seeking political offices.”

    Comment…The turban is not an islamic regalia as purported.It is a costume intrinsicly costomary with the middle east and worn by both arabs and jews because of the dursty climate of their desert environment. As for the cassock worn by pastors,no christian will raise any durst beccause a muslim was found wearing it. I dont know why religious extreamist like this one must alway find fault in mundane things like this to levy a war on Gods behalf? It is shame.
