*Kukah Asked To Apologize Over His Christmas Homily, Or Leave Sokoto

A group calling itself Muslims Solidarity Forum, has asked the catholic bishop of Sokoto Diocese., Mathew Kukah to apologise to the Muslim community, or leave the state

The forum, which claims to be the apex body of Islamic Organizations, Scholars and Clerics, says the Christmas Homily of the Catholic Bishop was capable of instigating religious violence in the country

The forum chairman, professor Isa Maishani addressing a news conference in Sokoto, regarded Kukah’s message in his homily, as uncharitable and was targeted at Islam

The forum says it had been monitoring the speeches of the cleric over the years, adding that it had always targeted the Northern Muslims

According to the forum, it is provocative for the catholic bishop who reside in the heart of Sokoto Caliphate to give such message in his homily

Meanwhile, the catholic bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Kukah, has said he is ready to apologise to Muslims if the Jamatul Nasir Islam Organization could prove its allegation that he abuse Islam in his New Year sermon

The cleric challenges the Islamic Organization to show any part of its sermon that insults Islam

The JNI had accused the cleric of firing arrow at the heart of Islam in guise of commenting on the state of the nation in his new year sermon

But Kukah also accused the Islamic organization of attempting to set him up against the Muslim community, because his sermon focussed mainly on what he termed the two painful themes of nepotism and haemorrhaging of lives of Nigerians

According to Kukah, in his writings over the last 40 years or more, he had never wrote a single paper on Islam as a religion
