The Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria (SCSN) has requested that relief goods be delivered to Palestinians who are in desperate need of food, clothing, medicine, and other necessities.
Sheikh AbdurRasheed Hadiyyatullah, President of the Council, made the statement at a news conference in Abuja on Thursday.
He also urged Nigerian humanitarian organisations and religious institutions to aid the beleaguered Palestinian people.
The Council urged all Muslims and followers of other faiths to offer special prayers to Allah, The Most High, to help Palestinians and all oppressed people around the world.
He said, “The Federal Government of Nigeria on behalf of the teeming Muslims and Christians and people of conscience in Nigeria, should, as a matter of urgency, provide relief materials to the besieged Palestinians.
“Muslim organisations, under the auspices of the Supreme Council for Shari’ah in Nigeria (SCSN), are deeply concerned about the ongoing genocide in Palestine.
“This is because apart from its criminality and lack of humanity, it also clearly shows the failure of global institutions established after the Second World War to protect human beings against any form of tyranny.”
He emphasised the necessity for the Federal Government of Nigeria to follow in the footsteps of the South African government and opposition parties, which criticised the conduct of the Zionist State of Israel.
The cleric also urged the international community to address the conflict’s core cause.
