Kaduna — The Jama'atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has expressed concerns about the unfolding happenings in Plateau and the killing of innocent lives at Gonin Gora, regretting that nothing practically is being done by any tier of government to contain the situation.
JNI Secretary-General Dr. Khalid Abubakar Aliyu said in a statement in Kaduna yesterday that "Following unfolding scenarios with respect to the rocket launching on the Muslim community of Bukuru in Plateau State by irate Christian community as reported to us, we make this release with pains and grief that such a thing is happening but majority of media outfits in Nigeria and beyond are not airing it.
"It is manifest that there is conspiracy of silence against Islam and the Muslims in Nigeria. However, we live our affairs to Allah, the Most High. Muslims are concerned about the killing of innocent lives at Gonin Gora and yet nothing practically seen done by any tier of government.
"Moreover, it is more apparent that the Gonin Gora settlement of Kaduna State has done more havoc to the Muslims in Nigeria and innocent travelers plying the road to and fro Abuja; but regrettably, that has not called for any ultimatum to the suburb. Why the selective justice? Why are the Muslims in Nigeria mal-handled? Why are the Muslims never given fair hearing in Nigeria?", he said.
