Prove critics wrong, Aregbesola urges Muslims


OSOGBO — GOVERNOR Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State, Monday, has urged Muslims in the country to prove to the contrary the belief that Islam was a religion of terror and mindless killings among other negative tendencies.

The governor spoke while receiving an Islamic organisation, Jama’atu Izalatil-Bid’ah wa Iqamatis – Sunnah (Organisation Propagating true tenets of the Prophet ), which paid him a courtesy visit in Osogbo.

Aregbesola said: “Islam rejects force, compulsion, killing and maiming and violence in all its forms. Islam encourages piety, good relation, nice character, a combination of which attracts people to Islam.

“The absence of all these qualities brings hatred.”
