Muslim groups call for Federal and State governments to make the first day of the Islamic calendar a public holiday

The Muslim Muslim Media Practitioners of Nigeria (MMPN), Obafemi Awolowo University Muslim Graduates Association (UNIFEMGA) and Muslim Community of Oyo state (MUSCOYS) National Council of Muslim Youths Organisations (NACOMYO), Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) and Muslim Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN) have all called on federal and state governments to declare Muharram 1, the first day of the Islamic Hijrah Calendar 1438 A.H, a public holiday.
In separate statements issued to mark the Islamic new year, the groups said such a move is only fair and will give Muslims in the country a sense of belonging.

They said it was long overdue and called on the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs to enter into dialogue with the Nigerian Government on the issue.

You might as well call for Nigerian calendar year to be changed from the Roman calendar year, to islamic calendar year. The moslems already have more holidays in any year, in Nigeria more than the Christians. The Christians holidays are only the Easter and Christmas holidays. Whereas, moslems gets a holiday in February (they said it's Mohammed's birthday), then the eid-el fitri and eidel maulud holidays. Well, the country is already in a recession, you have an islamic government in place, working very hard to declare the country an islamic country. Please don't ask for one more holiday, ask that any kind of work should be barred in Nigeria, and that everyone should be worshipping Mohammed January to December. And to think that this statement was made by youths, you begin to wonder how lazy they must be, as well as being core islamic fundamentalists

These people like raising up controversial issues. Is Nigeria an Islamic nation? 1st January have always been the only recognized New Year in the country and it has nothing to do with Christianity.

Please there are already too many public holidays in Nigeria. Nigeria is concentrating on making money and these ones are talking about public holiday. If we keep having public holidays in Nigeria, where is the time to make money and fix the bad economy of Nigeria? Soon native doctors and babalawos will also ask for public holiday. Stmcheew

Stupid assholes! Very lazy dullards!! They would make half the year public holidays if given the chance. Snese of belonging in hell. Idiots

Is it not the same Islamic calendar that Saudi Arabia have decided to do away with knowing that it is useless that the Muslims in Nigeria is holding onto? Are we moving forward or backward in this country?

' we think its long overdue, and it will give Muslims a sense of belonging' this line cracked up i almost spat in my delicious breakfast! Do you know what else is long overdue? Biafra! sit your lazy asses down! we are not an Islamic nation, its either you accept it or take your shit elsewhere! (in Melissa McCarthy's voice)

Islamisation of Nigeria loading>>>>>>>>>>

Mr Maddux said...

These Muslims should go and sit down.
Firstly they demanded that Fridays should be work free, now they're asking for Muslim calendar.
They should accept the superiority of Christianity.

globelly said...

Nigeria has not been declared a Muslim country jor. Which Arab country recognizes other calender year? Even xmas day in Arab countries Christians goes to work. They should just go and sleep and dont let me release my annoyance in their lives.

No mind them. All the public holidays they have is not enough. Plus Govt sponsoring their Mecca Trip to Saudi and the affordable exchange rate for mecca reip, is not enough to give them a sense of belonging. Abi? May God intervene for us in Jesus' name, amen.
