Mwaghavul Youth Movement Responds to MURIC's Allegations

Mwaghavul Youth Movement Responds to MURIC’s Allegations. Tubwot Joel Sunday, the Media Secretary of the Mwaghavul Youth Movement, issued a strong rebuke against Prof. Ishaq Akintola, founder of the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), in response to a recent press statement.

Sunday vehemently condemned what he described as misleading and inflammatory remarks made by Prof. Akintola.

Expressing deep disappointment, Sunday called into question Prof. Akintola’s integrity as both a religious leader and an academic.

The Mwaghavul Youth Movement emphasized the need for responsible and respectful discourse, particularly from individuals in positions of influence and authority.

The Mwaghavul Youth Movement has strongly contested MURIC’s assertion regarding the conversion of Bungha Juma’at Mosque in Mangu Local Government Area into a market, labeling it as unfounded and implausible.

They argue that such an event could not have occurred in Mangu or any other part of the country. Additionally, they challenge MURIC’s portrayal of the situation in Mangu LGA, stating that there are no recognized “Christian militias” in the area and that the Christian community has not been linked to violence.

Furthermore, the Mwaghavul Youth Movement criticizes MURIC’s call for the immediate reconstruction of the mosque and their threat of religious conflict if this demand is not met, branding it as criminal and irrational.

They accuse MURIC of overlooking the suffering of Christians who have endured hardship during recent religious conflicts in Mangu, highlighting the destruction and desecration of over 40 churches allegedly perpetrated by individuals associated with MURIC.

The Mwaghavul Youth Movement portrays a somber depiction of the prevailing circumstances in Mangu, underscoring the persistent tensions and conflicts impacting both Muslim and Christian populations.

They stress the paramount importance of peace and solidarity, urging their members and supporters to maintain composure and steadfastness in safeguarding the integrity of their culture and heritage.

Amidst the challenges faced by the community, they advocate for dialogue, reconciliation, and mutual respect as essential pillars for fostering harmony and coexistence among all residents of Mangu.

During their concluding statements, the Mwaghavul Youth Movement urges the Nigerian government to scrutinize the activities of MURIC and Prof. Akintola’s public involvements.

They highlight the significance of honesty and neutrality in tackling the underlying factors of religious conflicts, underlining the necessity of dialogue and empathy in resolving disagreements.

As religious tensions persist in Mangu and surrounding areas, organizations such as the Mwaghavul Youth Movement echo the complexities and obstacles inherent in nurturing harmonious coexistence amid diversity.
