Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI) under the leadership of its President-General, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, CFR, mni, the Sultan of Sokoto reiterates its total condemnation of the blasphemous utterances of Abdul-Jabbar of Kano against the personality of our most revered Prophet, Muhammad (SWA), his pious family members and dedicated companions, may Allah be pleased with them.

The Secretary-General, JNI N/Hqtrs., Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu in a signed statement said the organization will never wither or relent in its quest for an organized, Godly, sane as well as a just society. We will never be compromised or deterred!

At the beginning of this imbroglio, we commended the Kano state Government for the step it has taken to avert calamity on the land and prevent break down of law and order. We equally expected that the Government will consult widely on the way forward as this problem is not only restricted to Kano state; its a National or rather global phenomenon that affects every true practicing Muslim.

According to the statement, it appears that the issue is blown out of proportion by giving it undue publicity by the Government and individuals thereby making a hero out of a cowardly and disrespectful act on the most distinguished of Allah’s creatures, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

Abdul-Jabbar does not deserve the kind of publicity and attention accorded him since the break of this act of indignity, the statement added.

JNI based on most jurisprudential deductions feels that it’s not even proper to debate with Abdul-Jabbar as someone who openly blasphemes against the noble Prophet (SAW). His fate is sealed Islamically; there’s no point giving him additional opportunity and coverage to further spew his ungodly past-time to the world.

Had the Kano state Government consult most of the notable personalities invited (or expected) to grace the planned debate, the above stated pitfalls would have been avoided. Therefore, JNI hereby declares that it was not privy to any of the steps so far taken hence it will not attend the planned debate and neither would any of its branches participate therein.

JNI wish the Kano state Government and the ‘Ulama all the best and Allah’s guidance in all their undertakings. We also hope that the Government and the stake-holders involved in this process will reconsider their stand in this exercise.
