A source in Ungwar Sarkin Musulmi, which houses the famous Sultan Bello Mosque, has disclosed that about 50 Christian young men last night stormed the mosque and in furtherance of the Muslim Ramadan, broke the Ramadan fast with Muslim youths as part of ongoing efforts to strengthen unity, peace and coexistence between both faiths in the troubled State.



The  source said that there was consternation when the Christians arrived premises of the Mosque and proceeded to meet their hosts,and after exchanging pleasantries participated in ending the Ramadan fasting for the day  as  Muslims in the Mosque watched.

The leader of the Christians, Obadiah Dijji, according to the source said that they decided to visit the historic Mosque and break fast with their Muslim friends due to many reasons.

He said, “Christianity is not a violent religion and does not teach hate and restiveness, and it is in that regard that we are here. Again, this is historic this is Sultan Bello where Sir Ahmadu Bello prayed and he was a good man who preached peace. This is where late Sheik Abubakar Gumi preached until his death.

We are here for peace and may God give Nigeria peace.”

It would be recalled that on June 17, a series of crises erupted in the state when suicide bombers attacked Churches in Zaria and Kaduna town. The Boko Haram sect claimed responsibility for the bombings. The attack led to irate Christian youths attacking Muslims, and after two days, the Muslims also retaliated in areas where they are dominant.

Dijji also said that the Muslim youths have paid a similar solidarity visit to Christians at the Christian Association of Nigeria secretariat.

Let's all eschew religious and ethnic bigotry and concentrate more on our unity. Yes! We are diversed but in our diversity lies our unity. The crises over time has been orchestrated by the political class majorly because of their fetish end
