Protest In Kano Over Blasphemy Against Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam, Youth stormed the Kano Hisbah office on Wednesday over an alleged blasphemy song against the Noble Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alayhi Wasallam, Protesters holding placards claimed that the government and the security agents in the state are reluctant to act over the matter. The leader of the protest, Baba Idris, said they came to notify the government to take the necessary steps against the Singer; otherwise, things might get out of control.
Mr. Ibrahim said claimed, replica incidents had happened in the state in the past that were not given the necessary attention. Earlier, one man named Yahaya Sharif-Aminu writes a song containing alleged derogatory verses attributed to the prophet Muhammad. This triggered violence against the family members of the musician who was at large throughout last week.
Last week Friday, the family house of the singer at Sharifai quarters in Municipal Local Government Area Kano, was set ablaze by irate youth who were protesting against the singer’s action. The singer happens to be a member of the Tijjaniya sect and a member of Faidha group. He is yet to speak on the matter. While addressing the protesters, the Kano Hisbah Commander, Harun Ibn-Sina, said officials in the state are working to address the situation and the parents of the musician have been arrested and are currently under police custody. Also addressing the protesters was the representative of the state police commissioner, Habu Sani, who told the protesters that the police are making efforts to arrest the fleeing singer. The representative of the police chief who identified himself as Hamza urged the protesters to be law-abiding citizens by allowing the security agents to do the needful. He assured them that the musician would not go unpunished.
