Shari'ah Council Asks Gov. Ganduje To Fast Track The  Execution Of Kano Singer Charged For Blasphemy

It could be recalled that one Islamic gospel singer, Aminu was charged to court for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammad ( S.A.W) for releasing a song he circulated via social media.

Therefore, the  Supreme Council for Shari'ah in Nigeria ( SCSN) has called on Kano State Governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje to as a matter of urgency ensure the execution of the judgement of Upper Shari'ah Court,  Kano which convicted Yahaya Sheriff Aminu.

The SCSN in a statement issued on Tuesday by its Secretary General, Nafiu Baba-Ahmed said the execution of the court judgment will serve as a deterrent to others.

He added that the calls by some so called human rights groups to pardon the culprit should not deter the state government from doing the right thing as the case is purely an Islamic affair and in consonance with the religion, culture and wishes of not only the people of Kano but majority of Nigerians who are Muslims.

The Council therefore calls on Muslims to be mindful of their utterances as the Prophet Muhammad ( SAW) said, " Whoever believes in Allah and the Last day should say what is right it keep silent."

Prior to the incident, the Islamic gospel musician had gone into hiding after he composed the song and protesters had burnt his family home and converged to the headquarters of the Islamic police known as Hisbah to demand for action against him.
