MURIC Warns Muslim Students Against Attending Christian Schools



The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) on Thursday warned Muslim students in Nigeria not to attend Christian-owned schools.

The Islamic group called for the Muslim students and their parents to boycott private schools owned by churches until it is sanitised by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

This call was made by the group’s Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, who said that Christian school owners are yet to “purge themselves of tramadolised religiousity”.

He alleged that the proprietors have deep hatred for Muslims and their faith.

Akintola alleged “forceful conversion of Muslim students”, compelling them to attend church service and disallowing hijab.

“They are not given any space where they can pray. Hijab is an anathema in such institutions.

“Muslim students are forced to attend Christian service in the chapel where attendance registers are marked and absentees are sanctioned,” he claimed.

MURIC further accused the schools of “the poorest human rights records”, and compared them to “torture chambers”.

The statement described the failure to provide a place for Muslims learners to pray as “religious intolerance”.

It urged prospective students and their parents to make proper investigations before applying for admission into any private university.

“Those found to be owned by Christians should be avoided at all cost because they are nothing but spiritual traps set for Muslims to lose their identities,” he said.
