“Niqab Ban At FUNAAB Is Illegal” – MURIC. Calls For Protests

As written about Nairaland in 2017, the Federal University Of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) restricted the niqab, which is an Islamic dress that covers the whole body of a lady with the exception of her eyes. The justification behind this was clearly to guarantee that individuals nearby could be distinguished. They didn’t boycott the hijab, which covers a lady’s face and neck, or the chador, which covers a lady’s whole body aside from her face.

As of late, a previous understudy of FUNAAB went to the college wearing a the niqab. The security men demanded that she should eliminate her mask shroud before she could enter college. Thusly, the college affirmed that the niqab is restricted at FUNAAB.

Presently the Muslim Rights Concern, a vital muslim freedoms association headed by Professor Ishaq Akintola, is testing the niqab boycott at FUNAAB. As indicated by him, the niqab boycott disregards the opportunity of religion ensured by the constitution, which says “Each individual will be qualified for opportunity of … religion … to show and engender his religion or conviction”, so it’s illicit.

He said, “No establishment of learning, from essential to tertiary, regardless of whether government, state, or even private, has the privilege to forbid the utilization of hijab or niqab. It is a negation of the arrangements of Section 38(i) and (ii) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as altered. To that degree, thusly, all enemy of niqab declarations, updates, fliers, banners, and so on gave by FUNAAB are invalid, void and of no legitimate impact at all. Same goes for every single such affirmation and activities in other scholarly organizations all through Yorubaland.”

He gave a potential trade off to address the security concerns: “in case the specialists are not simply excited about profiling Muslims, they should simply to guarantee that Muslim ladies wearing niqab or hijab are checked by female security work force. Their characters can likewise be confirmed by female authorities who will take them aside and investigate their countenances and cross-beware of their personality cards.”

He called for muslim understudies to make a move against the niqab boycott, saying, “FUNAAB has crossed the red line. This mistreatment should stop and Muslim understudies need to take their predetermination in their grasp or the embarrassment will proceed with endlessly. From here on out, any establishment in the South West that messes up with Allah-given essential basic freedoms of Muslim understudies will confront the anger of the understudies.” (calmly)
