NGO tasks Nigerians to be their brother’s keeper

By Abdulwahab Abdulah

As Christians worldwide celebrate Christmas, a Muslim non governmental organisation, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has called on all Nigerians to be their brother keepers, regardless of religious or ethnic differences.

In a message to mark the occasion, Director of the organisation, Dr. Is-haq Akintola said the period was not only a time for festivities but also a time for sober reflections.

According to him, “Christmas period is not only a time for festivities but also a time for sober reflections. The birth of Jesus symptomises hope for the hopeless. His death stands for readiness for supreme sacrifice. His resurrection mirrors the reality of life after death and amplifies the unique nature and power of God to bring the living out of the dead, light after darkness and knowledge after a long period of ignorance.

“In the light of the above, we of the Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, call on all Nigerians to relish the Christmas season together as one regardless of religious or ethnic differences. We must put parochial and sentimental manifestation of faith behind us and allow objectivity and presence of mind to take centre stage.
