Abolish Shariah if you don’t like Christian courts — CAN fires back at Muslims | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Musa Asake, has stated that Muslims have no right to kick against a proposed bill to establish Christian courts across Nigeria.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday in Abuja passed for second reading, a bill to provide for the establishment of the Ecclesiastical Court of Appeal in the country.

Following the development, many persons, especially the Muslim have community kicked against it.

Reacting to the attacks and criticisms trailing the bill, Asake said if the Muslims were not comfortable with the bill, they should also abolish Shariah.

On why they want to establish Christian court, the CAN scribe told Punch that, “We have tolerated them enough. People should choose their words wisely. The ecclesiastical courts have nothing to do with them. They should make room for peace. Fulani herdsmen have been maiming and killing our people.

“When we cry out, what we hear is that those herdsmen are foreigners. We are left with no one to cry to. All we can do right now is to cry out to our God. If those people are foreigners and are allowed to carry AK-47 rifles and kill people who are citizens of the country, what does that tell you about those in charge of this country? I forgive whoever thinks the proposed bill to have Christian courts established across the country is a stupid idea.

“Why didn’t they stop the implementation of Shariah? Why are they trying to force Shariah on people who are not Muslims? If they want to stop the ecclesiastical courts, then they should let the Shariah laws and courts be abolished,” he added.

  1. Muslims think they own Nigeria because the Yoruba Muslims constitute a black sheep among the Christian south. The only language Muslims understand is tith for tath

  2. Mr Asake, you have no law from the beginning. Which of the Bible are you going to use?. King James version, new revised Bible used by Jehovah witness etc. Is our present Constitutional courts now Christianically oriented? Where do you have this type of court you are looking for in the world? Some people are just stupid when the entire CAN as a body has already said no need.

  3. This is a stupid move by Christians. If this bill is passed. Sharia courts will now exist in mainly Christian states.

    1. Muslims are arrogant and selfish. You want sharia court to exist but you don't want christian court to exist right? Do you think that nigeria with more than 80 million Christians is an islamic country? Why you terrorists are saying this is because the Christians have not started carrying arms, if they carry arms like you guys, it will be the world bloodiest war.

  4. Let the ecclesiastical law be established. If you're against it, you can possibly hang yourself as well.

  5. U are stupid to say its a stupid move. We all want the court anybody angry should go and gladly hug transformer........idiots!

  6. As,events are unfolding....the gods are wise.

  7. I don't know what's in the ecclesiastical law, but I'll like to ask, how many Christians can actually live by those laws?
    Even all the Muslims making noise about Sharia cannot live by the laws.
