Bello recently revealed this via his Twitter page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to him, he never advocated for Sharia in Nigeria, even if he has always defended sharia itself due to perceived Islamaphobia which usually condemns sharia instead of its improper usage.
He added that no members of any religion should impose their religion upon others, and even Allah has commanded that there is no compulsion in religion.
His words, “First of all, I have never advocated for Sharia in Nigeria. It glaringly clear that Nigeria is not an Islamic State and will never be.”
“However, I have always defended sharia itself due to perceived Islamaphobia which usually condemns sharia instead of its improper usage.”
“No members of any religion should impose their religion upon others, and even Allah has commanded that ‘there is no compulsion in religion’. Therefore, imposing Islam upon others is even unislamic.”
“Sharia is not the only thing done wrongly in Nigeria but every other law. Therefore, when criticizing sharia, we should be mindful not to be condemning it in general, as sharia in itself, is a religious instruction to Muslims, thereby making it offensive and Islamaphobic.”
