TEHRAN, Dec. 18 (MNA) – Islamic group in India has issued a statement condemning arrest of Sheikh Zakzaky and killing of hundreds of Muslims in Nigeria.
Here is the text of the statement:
It is very sad and tragic event that took place in Nigeria. The Leader of the Islamic Movement Ayatullah Sheikh Zakzaky has been attacked by the Army of the Nigeria and killed scores of innocent Muslims and later arrested Ayatullah Zakzaky.
Ayatullah Zakzaky is the strongest voice in Nigeria against the killings and oppression by terrorist organization Boko Haram. Recent attack shows that Nigerian Army is supporting the extremist terrorist organization Boko Haram.
Ayatullah Zakzaky is the strongest supporter of Palestine in Africa and has continuously raised his voice against the oppression of Israel. Moreover he has always raised his voice against the brutality of ISIL in Syria and Iraq.
Last year in the Holy month of Ramadhan, an attack took place during the International Quds Day Rally in Nigeria (organized by Ayatullah Zakzaky), clearly shows that Nigerian government and Boko Haram both are serving the agenda of Israel in Nigeria.
We strongly condemn this oppression by the Army of Nigeria and ask Nigerian Government to release Ayatullah Zakzaky with the immediate effect and let all the people of Nigeria peacefully practice their religious freedom.
