Deborah Samuel: Muslims have red lines that must not be crossed – National Mosque Imam


The Imam of National Mosque Abuja, Ibrahim Maqari, has said that Muslims have some red lines that must not be crossed, especially regarding the Prophet’s dignity.

The professor said this following the alleged execution of a Christian female student of Shagari college of education in Sokoto State. Deborah Samuel was burnt to death by a mob for blasphemy.

In a tweet on Friday, Imam Maqari said that consequences awaited those who crossed the religion’s red lines.

He expressed that if grievances are not adequately addressed, then criticism should be stayed concerning how individuals react.


His tweet read: “It should be known to everyone that we the Muslims have some red lines beyond which MUST NOT be crossed. The dignity of the Prophet (PBUH) is at the forefront of the red lines.

“If our grievances are not properly addressed, then you should not be criticized for addressing them ourselves.”
