Alleged Blashemy Against Prophet Mohammed – Activist Mubarak Bala Receive Death Threats

by Oduse David

For allegedly insulting prophet Muhammad, the president of Humanist Association of Nigeria (HAN), Mubarak Bala; who is also an atheist, is already receiving death threats from Islamic faithfuls including an Imam and a Policeman.Other ardent Muslims from the core northern parts of Nigeria are also threatening him on social media especially Facebook. Those in Kano state have threatened to kill him if he is ever brought to their state or wherever he will be locked up in Kano, he will be killed within two days.Mubarak Bala was arrested by the Nigerian Police in Kaduna after petitions were received from groups of Islamic faithfuls who are not taking it lightly that he insulted their prophet, Muhammad.Currently, the Activist is being taken to Kano state to stand trial in a Sharia court and if found guilty of blasphemy prophet Muhammad, he will be executed.Below are some of the screenshots of threats to Bala’s life and other comments on the social media by Muslim youths including that of Iman Musa Abubakar;

According to the police, he was arrested in Kaduna but he is being transferred to Kano state to stand trial in a Sharia court because all the petitions they received came in from Islamic groups in Kano.From my understanding, Sharia laws are only applicable to the Muslims who accept and practice Sharia and not for someone who does not believe in the teachings of Mohammed and sharia laws; so I think it is not good for the police to transfer him to Kano where his life is being threatened to be tried in a Sharia court.Though, I stand against reckless speeches and utterances but should this be happening in this 21st century and in a country that practices democracy which garuantee freedom of speech?Let’s have your OPINION on this!!!
