Fayose committed sacrilege for wearing Imam’s outfit-Muslim Group

For wearing attire meant for an Imam on the last Muslims’ festival, Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti State committed sacrilege, a Muslims rights group declared yesterday.
For inexplicable reasons, the governor shocked the world on the last Muslims celebration on September 1, 2017 when he appeared in full regalia, including a turban as an Imam, at the venue of the event in his state. Apart from the controversy stoked by the costume, Fayose also used the ground to make some strong political statements that have now been condemned by the Muslims Rights Concern, MURIC, headed by Islamic scholar, Professor Ishaq Akintola.
MURIC’s fury In a strongly-worded statement condemning the governor’s action, MURIC said: “The Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, appeared on Eid ground dressed in Islamic regalia, including a turban on Friday, 1st September, 2017. Mr. Fayose also delivered a politically-motivated speech at the Ed ground. The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) strongly condemns Fayose’s action. It is highly sacrilegious and unduly provocative. It is Act I, Scene I in the Theatre of the Absurd.
“Governor Fayose cannot pretend to be a friend of Ekiti Muslims. He has delivered several anti-Muslim speeches and uttered several hate pronouncements targeted at Nigerian Muslims. His general attitude and body language to Muslims of Ekiti belie his status as the state governor. “He has also demolished mosques out of sheer desire to eliminate all Islamic landmarks in Ekiti. So, who is Fayose deceiving?”
