The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has encouraged Nigerian Muslim students and their parents to stay away from private universities owned by Christians.
The body said such schools ought to be shunned pending the time the National Universities Commission (NUC) “sanitise them”
The Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola claimed that Christian proprietors “are yet to cleanse themselves of tramadolised religiousity’.
The Islamic human rights organisation accused them of “deep-seated hatred for Muslims and their faith”.
Akintola alleged “forceful conversion of Muslim students”, compelling them to go to church service and prohibiting hijab.
In a statement on Thursday, he said Muslims are not permitted to practice their faith in Christian universities nor form associations.
“They are not given any space where they can pray. Hijab is an anathema in such institutions.
“Muslim students are forced to attend Christian service in the chapel where attendance registers are marked and absentees are sanctioned,” he claimed.
MURIC further accused the schools of “the poorest human rights records”, and compared them to “torture chambers”.
The statement portrayed the failure to give a spot to Muslims students to pray as “religious intolerance”.
It urged imminent students and their folks to make appropriate investigations prior to applying for entrance into any private university.
“Those found to be owned by Christians should be avoided at all cost because they are nothing but spiritual traps set for Muslims to lose their identities,” he said.
