Christian Clerics Donate Kettles, Mats To Muslims In Kaduna

Must read

A group of Christian clerics led by Pastor Yohanna Buru, on Saturday, January 16, 2016 donated some prayer items to Muslims in Kaduna State in their bid to maintain religious tolerance and peaceful coexistence in the state.

Among the items donated to some mosques across the state were plastic kettles and mats which were meant for prayers.

Buru, the General Overseer of Christ Evangelical Intercessory Fellowship Ministry, Sabon Tasha, was accompanied by Reverend Fathers, Evangelists and other church members, Daily Post reports.

He said: “We have come to donate these plastic kettles and prayers mats to the mosque leaders, because we all worship one God and we are from one family- Adam and Eve; so, we should be teaching both Muslims and Christians how to forgive, tolerate, love, accommodate each other and to preach against attacking holy places.

“The division in Kaduna State is as a result of religious and political crises that has caused a major setback to peace and stabilty in the state.

“The southern part of the state is highly dominated by Christians while the northen part is also dominated by Muslims. This has resulted to both religions opening their own schools, thereby making people see other communities as enemies.”

Receiving the gift items at the mosques at Tudun Wada, Kaduna, Sheikh Abdullahi salihu Maibarita, a Muslim scholar, expressed satisfaction and called for peace and harmony among Nigerians.

Sheikh Maibarita expressed surprise at the gesture, adding that it was the first of its kind in the state.

In 2015, Pastor Buru was invited to over 60 Maulud celebrations, the birth of the Holy Prophet Mohammad.

Defending his reason for honouring the invitation, Buru said: I did that because the Bible teaches us to rejoice and celebrate with our neighbours and also to mourn with them when they are mourning.”
