The Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA) under the leadership of its President General and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, has expressed sadness over the outbreak of deadly and devastating war on the besieged Palestinians in Gaza.

The council said this on Monday in a statement jointly signed by Prof. Salisu Shehu and Yunus Ustaz Usman (SAN); NSCIA Deputy Secretary General and National Legal Adviser, respectively.

The statement said that the savagery of the assaults was heart-rending and that the horrendous attacks on civilians were unfortunate thus demanding an immediate cessation of hostilities against Gaza.

The council said that there should be no double standards regarding the enthronement of sustainable peace and that while it is desirable to toe the path of peace, peace without justice would only precipitate future crises.

It expressed disappointment that the United States had openly taken sides with Israel in spite of its brazen and incessant aggressions and massacre of the Palestinians for about eight decades now.

The council urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to, as it did with apartheid in South Africa and for the sake of humanity and justice, to come out and stand clearly with the helpless victims of persistent Israeli persecution, massacre, oppression and suppression.
