NCEF tasks Islamic leaders to disable doctrine of hatred, attacks on Christians

The National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) has urged Islamic leaders to disable doctrine of hatred within its fold, so as to stop frequent attacks on Christians, reports ITRealms.

Reacting to the yet another murder last weekend of a 42-year old Christian woman, Mrs. Eunice Olawale Elisha by suspected Islamic assailants, NCEF in a press statement by Solomon Asemota (SAN), made available to ITRealms said the news got to them as a shock.

ITRealms gathered that Mrs. Elisha was murdered on Saturday, 9th July, 2016, while on Christian Evangelism in the early hours. Her neck was reportedly slashed and was also stabbed in the stomach at Kubwa area of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

Noting that barely nine days earlier, on 30th June, 2016, Pastor Joseph Zakariya Kura of the Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) was murdered while on his farm by Fulani herdsmen in Obi LGA of Nasarawa State. Until his death, Pastor Kura was the Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Obi LGA.
The NCEF also expressed condolence to families that have been affected in recent gruesome mindless and unwarranted murder of Nigerian citizens, lamenting how a modern state could descend to such level of barbarity and bestial extermination of human lives.

NCEF, therefore, attributed these killings to three immediate factors namely anchored on doctrine of hatred, sacred space and a polity in dual political systems.

Asemota’s NCEF explained that the doctrine of hatred used to indoctrinate Almajiris in various Islamic Madrassas in the North where Muslims were deliberately taught to hate Christians and people of other faiths, contributed to the current mess.

In addition, NCEF said the concept of ‘sacred space’ is that which Islamists believe, for example, that the road leading to their mosque belongs exclusively to them. Stressing that the ‘sacred space’ concept is applied to every area in which Islamism has travelled. “The belief is that all land on earth has been given by Allah to Muslims and it is theirs by right, to stage a Jihad to retake them,” Asemota underscored.

NCEF emphasised that the result of one nation operating two political systems of democracy and sharia, has not been helpful, urging Muslim leaders in the country to take steps to reverse this anomaly in the best interest of everyone.

“No country can make progress and live in peace when a section of the population is consumed with hatred for other citizens,” NCEF insists.
