PDP cautions MURIC against causing religion conflict

The leadership of the Taraba State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has cautioned the Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, against instigating religious conflict in the State.

The warning came two days after the State government also urged the organization to cease from making itself available as a tool in the hands of overzealous politicians.

Giving the caution on Thursday in Jalingo, via a press release, the party held that “churches and mosques are exclusive to Christians and Muslims, respectively.

Signed by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Andeta’rang Irammae, the party cautioned the Director of the organization to desist from making public statements capable of dividing the State along religion lines.

“Professor Ishaq Akintola and his MURIC”, according to the party, “are strongly advised to appreciate the peculiarities of Taraba State and stop fanning the embers of hatred and caustic tendencies.”

“Apart from churches and mosques”, which the party said “are exclusives of the two major faith”, other spheres of human endeavors, according to the party “are common hubs for practitioners of the two religions”, stating that “they go to the same markets with all the variants of economic vicissitudes, same depravities and are victims of insecurity, inflation and other social malaise.”

It added that “Professor Ishaq’s diversionary, destructive and distractive antics that do not reflect the mood of the people of Taraba State, who have coexisted in the consciousness of brotherhood and collective desire for peace.”

He stressed that “it is a known truth that a fanatic do not care about fact and reality”.

“What matters to a fanatic”, PDP said “is victory of his belief and illusions, most dangerously when fanaticism is woven round ego and mundane biases the people are already doomed.”

While urging “Professor Ishaq and his cohorts to spare the people of Taraba State the pain of self destruct”, the party affirmed that “extreme intolerance that borders on fanaticism is alien baggage that Ishaq desperately wants to dump on Taraba State.”

The party beckoned at religious leaders of both faith to devout their time, prayers and energy “to preaching peace, transparency and moral restraints for better society rather than indulging in trivial banters like who is appointed or not appointed.”
