The Board of Trustees of the Muslims Students Society of Nigeria (MSSN), on Sunday cautioned the Federal Government against banning use of hijab (veils) by Muslim women in any part of the country.

Chairman, Board of Trustees of MSSN, Justice AbdulKadir Orire, gave the caution during a meeting of the board in llorin on Sunday.

Orire, pioneer Grand Khadi of Kwara state’s Sharia Court of Appeal, said MSSN will not accept the ban of anything that is part of Islamic doctrines as divinely ordained by Allah.

He, therefore, condemned calls by some people for the banning of hijab which he described as part of dress of Muslim women.

Orire condemned insinuations that the use of hijab was aiding suicide bombings in the Boko Haram infested north-eastern parts of the country.

He maintained that wearing of hijab was a divine commandment from Allah and disagreed with those attributing spate of bombings to those wearing hijab as unfortunate.

“Wearing of hijab is part of life of Muslims. Certainly Muslims will not accept the banning of anything that is part of Islam.”

Orire was of the view that removing religions knowledge as a subject from schools curriculum would further compound moral decadence in the society.

He said one of the factors that aided Boko Haram was lack of adequate religious knowledge which he said would be worsened if religious teaching was removed from school curriculum.

“Anybody that is calling for the banning of faith teachings in schools curriculum is kidding. Muslims will not accept it.”

Member of the Board, Alhaji lsiaq Kunle-Sanni, called on the federal government to install screening machines at public places to curtail bombings and other security threats.

He said the entry and exit in markets, Churches, Mosques and other public areas should be well guarded to prevent planting of bombs and other explosives. (NAN)
