The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has attacked the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, the United States, and mocked President Donald Trump.
MURIC was reacting to Nigeria’s recent blacklisting by the United States for allegedly violating religious rights in the country.
The CAN backed the announcement made by the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and lamented that there is serious religious persecution in the country.
However, the Federal Government has denied the allegations, maintaining that Nigeria remains safe for all religions.
On Monday, in a statement signed by MURIC director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, said President Trump as a drowning man.
MURIC described Trump as a man who is too eager to believe any lie about any Muslim leader due to his pursuit of a Christian crusade.
The group further claimed that it is the Muslims that are at the receiving end of the religious discrimination.
“We are nonplussed by the recent allegation of violation of religious rights made by the United States against Nigeria. This is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. By the way, what is the US record of respecting the religious rights of Muslims around the world?
“All pieces of evidence point at the US heading a Westo-Christian crusade against Muslim leaders and Muslim countries around the globe.
“Why are Muslim nations always on the list of US sanctions? Is it not for the purpose of retarding their progress while Western countries continue to rise?
MURIC further accused Can of lying about the actual situation in the country.
“As for CAN’s lie that 95% of heads of security agencies in Nigeria are Muslims, we are not surprised because deceit is not only in the character of CAN, it is in its DNA. CAN deliberately ignored the federal cabinet where Christians have 20 while Muslims are only 18, and this is a government under a Muslim president.
“CAN is mischievous. CAN is insatiable. CAN will continue to deceive the world that Christians are marginalized until all positions are filled with Christians only and until Muslims are forced to eat from crusts under the table. Our neighbour’s middle name has long been known as ‘deception.’
“CAN’s claim of religious discrimination is false, baseless, and unfounded.
“To cap the edifice, CAN ensures that its agents in the government ministries and agencies deprive Muslims of enjoying public facilities and civic rights like national identity cards and international passports once they insist on maintaining their Islamic identity.
“It is our contention that President Trump is picking on President Buhari because the latter is a Muslim. It is religious stigmatization.
“President Donald Trump is too eager to swallow CAN’s lies, hook, line, and sinker. Fortunately, the world now realizes who we are dealing with. It is becoming clearer day by day, particularly in the wake of the US election, that Trump is a man already drowned in the sea of fantasies.
“A bully, a fake democrat, and a totalitarian dictator have taken America for a ride. The only relief today is that we know Trump does not represent America. At least true democrats have proved that they can maintain the American standard,” it said.
