The group in an assertion said, “The demise by means of hanging of Yahaya Sharif Aminu for blaspheming towards Prophet Muhammed is repulsive to herbal justice, fairness and desirable sense of right and wrong and a gross
violation of his rights to freedom of thought, conscience, faith and expression.”
Pro-democracy and human rights group, Concerned Nigerians, has condemned the sentence to demise via putting of a Kano-based musician, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, over alleged blasphemy in opposition to Prophet Muhammad through a Sharia court.
The group in a declaration through its spokesperson, Theophilus Abu Agada, said, “The demise through putting of Yahaya Sharif Aminu for blaspheming towards Prophet Muhammed is repulsive to herbal justice, fairness and desirable sense of right and wrong and a gross violation of his rights to freedom of thought, conscience, faith and expression.
“We condemn in robust phrases the dying sentence by way of placing to a Kano-based artiste, Yahaya Sharif-Aminu, for blaspheming towards the Prophet Muhammad.
“The injustice confronted through non-religious and even non secular human beings in some components of Nigeria is unbecoming. Every Nigerian, irrespective of their belief, need to be allowed to exercise something they accept as true with except being arrested, detained and sentenced to death.
“It is hypocritical on the section of spiritual and political category to constantly hound susceptible Nigerians on trivial things whilst they commit the most heinous crimes towards God and humanity.”
The crew argued that the existence of loss of life penalty for blasphemy was once a violation of the rights to freedom of thinking and expression, pointing out how the injustices confronted through each spiritual and non-religious humans alike should stop.
“The arrest and detention of Yahaya is a breach of part 38 of our charter which states that each and every character shall be entitled to freedom of thought, moral sense and religion, inclusive of freedom to alternate his faith or belief, and freedom (either on my own or in neighborhood with others, and in public or in private) to show up and propagate his faith or trust in worship, teaching, exercise and observance,” the team added.
It is vital that the Nigerian Government, Kano and different states in Northern Nigeria take into cognizance, area 10 of our charter which states that “Government of the federation or of a nation shall no longer undertake any faith as kingdom religion”.
Yahaya through regulation has now not dedicated any crime in opposition to the nation or any individual or crew of folks to warrant a dying sentence by means of hanging, Concerned Nigerians similarly stated.
