MURIC ac­cuses Fani-Kay­ode of Is­lam­o­pho­bia

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ab­bas Ji­moh

The Mus­lim Rights Con­cern (MURIC) has faulted for­mer Avi­a­tion Min­is­ter Femi FaniKay­ode over his com­ment con­demn­ing the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) ru­moured Mus­lim-Mus­lim pres­i­den­tial ticket for 2015 elec­tion.

Di­rec­tor of MURIC Prof. Ishaq Ak­in­tola said Fani-Kay­ode’s com­ment fur­ther con­firmed his Is­lam­o­pho­bia stance es­pe­cially on his sud­denly found new ro­mance in Aso Rock.

“Af­ter a long pe­riod of hos­tile writ­ings and crit­i­cisms in so­cial me­dia, he vis­ited Pres­i­dent Jonathan this (last) week be­cause, ac­cord­ing to him, APC is plan­ning a Mus­limMus­lim ticket. Won­der who told him that? Won­der where he heard it? Won­der whether he cooked it up and it ex­ists only in the fig­ment of his imag­i­na­tion,” MURIC said in a state­ment.

“Femi Fani-Kay­ode’s pho­bia for Mus­limMus­lim ticket fur­ther ce­ments his past hate ar­ti­cles on Is­lam. The ques­tion for FaniKay­ode is whether the fear of EFCC is the be­gin­ning of wis­dom or the patho­log­i­cal al­lergy for Is­lam,” Ak­in­tola said.
