Aisha Yusuf, a human rights activist, has voiced her disgust over a viral video showing some Muslims scavenging for leftover food.
Aisha, via her X page said the entire Arewa community should feel ashamed of themselves for that sad situation. Adding that the Muslims in Arewa were, tarnishing the very essence of Islamic culture.
Making reference to the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, the social critic stated that this behavior was contrary to the way he had taught his followers.
Aisha Yusuf wrote: “The whole of Area should be ashamed of itself. The whole Muslims in Arewa are a disgrace to Islam.
This is not the population that Prophet Muhammad (SAW) asked us to give.
We all have failed Islam! As for the Mallams and Sheikhs and what have you. Shame on you all!”
Yusuf was responding to one Mallam Jabir who blamed northern politicians for the disturbing video circulating on social media.
Jabir tweeted, “Things like this made me hate Nigerian politicians more especially the northern politicians. Look at the situation we’ve found ourselves today in this country.
These are children fighting for a plate of food left by someone in guru market, yobe state. Things like this encourage me to join politics because we cannot continue to allow selfish and irresponsible people to keep on deceiving us. We must act!!!”
