Nigerian muslim cleric warns muslim lawmakers to reject gender equality bill

A Muslim cleric in Nigeria, Sheikh Isyaka Rabiu - leader of the Tijjaniya Brotherhood, has warned Muslim lawmakers that they will be condemned as unbelievers if they back the gender equality bill. According to him, the bill which proposes that men and women inherit an equal share, violates the Koran.

In an Interview with BBC, Sheikh Rabiu said "whoever approves of the bill is an unbeliever, not Muslim. I am appealing to all Muslim [senators] to never allow this bill to become law and if they do, we are going to tell all Nigerian Muslims not to accept it."

The Gender Equality Opportunity (GEO) Bill which is sponsored by a female Senator, Biodun Olujimi, suffered major setback in March this year but passed for second reading at the senate on September 29th. It seeks to address women's freedom of movement, female economic activity, girls' access to education, equal rights for women in marriage, divorce, property/land ownership and inheritance, appropriate measures against gender discrimination in political and public life and prohibitions of violence to women.

This is more reason why I want this country to divide so Muslims can go on and be their own country and practice whatever they want, Muslims are dragging this country backward.... My hrt goes out for Christians in North though, they are always on receiving end...

The Muslims can reject it in sharia court, no body gives a hoot. But for lawmakers to reject a bill because it doesn't fall within the tenet of islam/Koran is just laughable.

First off, Nigeria is a secular state, not an Islamic state. We have atheists, traditionalists,Christians etc.

The Nigerian constitution allows freedom of worship, so why will a certain religion impose their beliefs on an entire (secular) Nation?

I tell you all this old fashioned clerics are still living in the stone age......Mr cleric Nigeria has left you behind like long time ago......deal with that

The muslim religion treats women as sex slaves and their laws are very wicked to women that's why they are against the bill. So i am not surprised. This country should just divide into two. The muslims should go to the North while the christians stay in the South so that we can have two different laws abeg

I wish that all women should go on strike and stop getting married and stop men from touching them so that men will know the importance of women in a society and start appreciating them. The bible says women should submit to their husbands and the bible also says men must love their wives. It is a two way thing. You cannot disrespect me and expect me to submit. The bible did not say treat your wives as slaves just because they submit to you. Afterall, some wives work and assist their husbands to bring money home and put food on the table which is supposed to be the man's primary responsibility as the head of the home. It is high time we stop this babaric behaviour against women

Ok even if they dont want gender equality bill, at least let them pass a bill against domestic violence and jungle justice to protect women

Anything that we want to do in this country to move the country forward must always be put on hold because it doesnt agree with muslim religion. Are we ruling this country based on religion or based on democracy? Dont muslims live in London and America were gender equality is being practiced? If they are against gender equality, why did they choose to live in places like US and UK where there is a bill in place for gender equality? Bloody hypocrites!

Please Nigeria needs to divide so that muslims can practice their religion elsewhere
