Sultan Preaches Peace, Urged Nigerians against Religious Violence

Sultan of Sokoto

President General of Ja’amatu Nasril Islam (JNI), Sultan of Sokoto , His Eminence Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar, has urged Christians and Muslims in Nigeria to maintain peace and unity with each other

He said this at the commissioning of the International Centre for Interfaith, Peace and Harmony (ICIPH) in Kaduna.
“No country survives war or war stimulated by religious intolerance,” he said, adding that the practice of religion should be voluntary and not by force.
“We have seen countries where people are killing one another; obviously there can be no peace in such countries. Killing is not part of the teachings of the holy book.
“Nigeria has a Muslim president and before him was a Christian president. We must see ourselves as one big family, without that, we cannot have peace.
“It is not possible to Islamize Nigeria. We must respect one another and understand the tenets of the two religions,” the Sultan appealed.
