Alhaji Muhammadu Sanusi II, The Emir of Kano, has warned Muslim clerics in the country to stop using their mosques to preach hate among Nigerians,Punch reports.
Sanusi gave the warning in his sermon at the ultra-modern mosque of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State on Friday.
He also led the first Friday prayers in the mosque after inaugurating it. The inauguration of the mosque was one of the activities that marked the school’s 26th convocation and 35th anniversary.
He said it was unfortunate that some Muslims, especially clerics, were hiding under the sanctity and immunity of the holy places to set one part of the society against the other.
The monarch described it as totally against the tenets of Islam.
He asked Muslims all over the country to unite and forge a common front for the propagation of the religion.
Sanusi also called for religious tolerance among members of the two major religions in Nigeria, saying it was the panacea for peace in the country.
