The Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) reacted to the court ruling declaring them as a terrorist group, the popular Islamic group named Shiite.
The Federal High Court ruling which came up on Friday, by Justice Nkeonye Maha due to their activities that on Monday, July 22 that claim life of a National Youth Corp Service Member serving with Channels TV and a deputy commissioner of Police, I'm at Belel and 10 others in the Federal Capital Abuja.
Abdullah Musa, said the federal government cannot stop the group from practising its religion. How was the forum academic secretary of forum.he said, people were are aware of their moves.
All they want is to suppress the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) just to please Saudi Arabia. They want to kill Sheik Ibrahim Zakzaky to silence this (IMN). When they were killing us, they didn’t get any court order. Now, they are talking of court order, mean while does Buhari obey court orders?
No court in Nigeria has the right to ban any religious group. Islamic movement in Nigeria is not an organisation registered under the government, we are religious group. they are trying to stop us from saying our daily prayers?”
They can stop us from participating in our Christian neighbour activities? They can't stop us from going to Mecca? The issue is that they have been killing and they want to continue the killings, they should go ahead with their killings, no need to wait for any court.
We are practising religion and we will continue to practice our religion, there is no killing or act of intimidation that will stop us from practicing our religion.
Buhari or any governor of any state cannot force us to adopt their ideology, they want us to submit to their own ideology and we said no. This government is killing us because they feel that it this is time for Jihad.
They should go ahead with their jihad, when they are through with us they will move to the Christians and other religious bodies.
You can't just say one day and proscribed the activities of IMN. It’s like saying you have banned the Catholic Church or any other church.
Does that make any sense? Is there any constitution backing that? We will continue practising our religion they have been killing us and we won't stop practising our religion, they should go ahead because we won’t stop.”
Abdullah Musa the forum academic secretary vowed that we won't back out from staging protests until our leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, is released.
