The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), a human rights organisation, has commended the Kano State Government for banning an Islamic Scholar Sheikh Abduljabbar Nasiru Kabarah for alleged inciteful preaching.

Reports have it that the Kano State Government banned Nasir-Kabara, for inciteful preaching on Feb. 4.

The commendation is contained in a statement issued by the Director of MURIC, Prof. Ishaq Akintola.

”The action of the Kano state government is necessary to prevent any breakdown of law and order, occasioned by the comments and actions of the Islamic Scholar.

“We commend Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje for taking this proactive step, this is not the time to allow the outbreak of the religious crisis.

”Trouble makers are waiting out there to capitalise on any little breakdown of law and order to foment trouble.

”The governor deserves a pat in the back. We hope other state governors will act promptly to nip any crisis that rears its ugly head in the bud. Nigeria needs peace to develop,” Akintola said.

NAN reports that the Kano Commissioner for Information, Muhammad Garba, who announced the order,  said that the government considered the cleric’s mode of teachings as ”incendiary”.
