Gumi Reacts To Kukah’s Sermon At Yakowa’s Funeral, Challenges Sultan, Buhari

By SaharaReporters, New York

Sheik Ahmad Gumi, an Islamic scholar and son of late Sheik Abubakar Mahmud Gumi, who have been critical of Nigerian establishment recently has reacted over a sermon by Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah preached at the funeral of late Kaduna State governor, Mr. Patrick Yakowa who died in a plane crash.

He challenged the Sultan of Sokoto Alhaji Sa’ad Muhammad Abubakar, General Muhammadu Buhari and Bishop Kukah to explain why they remained quiet, when Muslims were allegedly killed in Kaduna State.

Gumi who was reacting following Kukah’s sermon that SaharaReporters exclusively published said, “No Muslim should rejoice at the death of any person except if such a person has shown enmity to Islam and takes part in plots to undermine it.”

Insisting that Muslims were killed during Yakowa’s reign in Southern Kaduna, Gumi who is known to be blunt, added “But when Yakowa ascended to power, more than 500 innocent Muslims were massacred in cold blood in southern Kaduna, the area he came from. Many families were exterminated and many were expelled from their abode even up to this day. Many are still refugees in camps and in other places, with little help from the federal, state governments and individuals. Worst still there was no remarkable reaction against these atrocities from any notable Muslim individual or organization except of course the ‘supreme council for sharia’ headed by Dr. Ahmad Datti which documented all these atrocities (May Allah reward them abundantly) and personal contributions from many individuals that could not match the degree of the disaster. That was a case of genocide against poor innocent Muslims just because of the ascension of this man to power. Now I ask and I want answers. What was the reaction of CAN to these atrocities? What was the reaction of the bishop? What was the reaction of the Sultan of Sokoto? What was the reaction of Gen. Buhari? What was the reaction of Sheikh Yusuf Sambo? What was the reaction of Yakowa’s noisy SA of Islamic religious affairs?

“What are we witnessing as an Ummah, when thousands of Muslims are and were killed, maimed and displaced (today all Muslims in Tafawa Balewa are exiled and their properties confiscated) and yet, look at this blatant hypocrisy! Some academic staffs of Kaduna University came to me complaining of the Christian VC and his policy of intentional marginalization and prejudice against the Muslims. These are academicians not riff raffs. And many other complaints that are natural when a minority accend to power. Brothers and Sisters, to get me right, I am not questioning these people’s genuine concern of the death of their bosom friend and comrade. What I am questioning is the apathy when Muslims are killed by criminals and the sadness when Allah has done His justice. May Allah preserve our faith and protect us all from all Evil.”

Yes, the Muslims may be high

Yes, the Muslims may be high in number why not? Wen the religion allows u to marry 4 wives & give birth to 70-100 children they hardly can take care of who later become rebels.The names of those rev.,pastors & the names of thier churches who converted to Islam should be written for the world to see. Gummi should shot up.JESUS IS LORD?

MAY ALMIGHTY ALLAH REWARD MALAM.

ISLAM IS STILL THE FASTEST GROWING RELIGION IN THE WORLD ACCORDING TO CHRISTIAN STATISTICS. Despite making our religion synonymous to TERRORISM. BISHOPS,PASTORS ETC are still converting to ISLAM.

Christiens are pro-masonic

The nigeria economic

Do as wel as u can all is life

no one is correct

people wrongly think the nIGERIA'S PROBLEM IS POLITICAL AND ECONOMICAL. iT IS highly RELIGIOUS! gUMMI IS ON THE MUSLIM'S SIDE WHILE kukaH IS ON THE OTHER SIDE. nO ONE IS cORRECT. bUT islam is violence personified.

NORTHERN NIGERIA IS DESTROYED

Islam is a religion that depends on violence. Even Muslims are themselves not safe from their deadly cult. Just consider what is happening btw Muslims themselves in Arabo-Islamic world.

Making clear

U keep short wen u no not knowledge of scripture, its laws and comandment.

Brother! I agree with your

Brother! I agree with your position fully, 100%!!!

kukah vs gumi

what a shame to all of you. I believe very strongly in my Spirit that God is up there watching our folly, anger, deceit, bitterness, envy, malicious tendency, covetousness, greed, selfishness, cheats and all kinds of immorality yet we are here killing ourselves because of religious differences. why are the serving big wigs untouchable by BH? Who are we really worshiping? God or Mammon? Let us search our conscience and the faith we all professed and see if we are doing what is in our Holy Books.

Gumi Vs Kukah

Yes it suits the muslims to make noise of 500 killed without mentioning the more than 1000 christians killed! See the hypocrisy,because they own the media up north up to bbc

Many talk about the dead,gumi, rev kukah and religion.

Nigerians think and let us be our brothers keeper.

The bitter Truth:

Surely the truth is clear and also false clear,except for those who chose to be blind.Gumis reaction to rev. kukah was born out of the concern and need for justice to be enshrined across the land irrespective of religion or ethnicity.And also the one sided sermon of rev.kukah.The ealier we face the plain truth the better for all of us.

Gumi vs Kukah

The simple message Gumi is trying to pass is that, Christian leaders are blunt in their public addresses, they are not afraid of expressing their minds, defending their religion or attacking other religions. But same cannot be said about Muslims leaders, they are always afraid to publicly air their opinion and that of their followers talk less of defending their religion.
The good example Gumi cited is enough to justify his claims.
On incessant bombings, what do Gumi's critics have to say about quite number of Christians arrested or have been confirmed guilty of involvement ?
Similarly, the said 500 Muslims killed by S/ kaduna communities were not given attention and publicity compared to the 44 people killed in Madalla by only God knows who.

My words are simple: whatever

My words are simple: whatever is founded on ignorance and illiteracy can only thrive on such.The parts of the world that value education and peace are making giant strides in every facet of life. Any wonder why a place like Dubai is becoming like the World Capital? The culture and religion in this place are still well-preserved!

that is democracy 4 u

the rule is for the majority !and that is democracy for u.but at the same time that doesnot mean we cannot live 2gether peacefully.

pls be fair to gummi

pls be wise enough to know who the real boko haram is,are they not your fellow christians?and 4 your information ,gummi has seriously condemned all the types of boko harams.and killing of innoccent is known by all,to be unislamic,and to confirm this you will find out the majority of muslims are against them. and they consider them ignorant of the teachings of islam.the prophet was at peace with every peaceful being but he never hesitated to get islam its rights by following the write measures.so gummi is on the write track and may god help him!

Peace

The Sheink Gumi's comment is in the right direction, because he has the right of expressing his view. every where and any place as a citizen . Like wise kuka. So we ashould understand them first and continue to pray for the County

Islam means peace but it never meant ignorance and stupidity!

so far the bad gummi by his knowledge and foresight has made the ignorant,blind muslims aware of the incompetence of our leaders and has instigated us against them,as a democratic nigeria ,we are calling on our leaders to come out publicly and make us aware that they are competent enough to solve our problems!in other to bring peace to nigeria! awareness saves all the trouble!this is never lowness but paying us our rights of staying well informed ,for nigeria is democratic and not a monarchic country.And islam means peace but it never meant stupidity,and a muslim is always meant to be wise and insightful

Islam means peace but it never meant ignorance and stupidity!

The obvious thing is that most of u dont understand what is called democracy!gummi as a nigerian has the right to voice out his distress over any wrong action by any influencial person in the government!he is educated and he knows his full rights as a nigerian!.
And yes we agree with you that gummi does not whant peace for nigeria,but i suppose those gentle men whom those questions were gently forwarded to are in a better position to understand them better than any one of us , because they have been practically in association with the government and nigerian politics for a very long time, and they know better what is going inn and out!as a democratic nigeria, if they are really honest and they really understand the meaning of the positions they are holding,then it is now time for them to come out and challenge him publicly, in other to confirm to nigerians that they are after their interest and they are after apeacefull nigeria

pls stay informed

pls my dear, go and listen to his last ramadan sermon!he seriously condemned all the types of boko haram we have in nigeria.and that was why before the end of month of ramadan his life was threatened by an aborted bomb attack.pls read it its every where !

Oh! May the Lord Jesus Christ

Oh! May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you for that comment. People like Gummi feel only muslim lives are sacred. Why didn't he in the same light speak up when muslim fanatics were bombing churches everywhere? Killing innocent souls.... No right thinking muslim will concur to that his satanic speech.

Re- Gumi vs Kukah

I am surprised at comments made by Gumi in response to harmless sermon preached by Kukah. Is Gumi justifying the fact that only muslims have the exclusive right to take human life? What was his reaction to all the killings recorded in Kaduna so far when it was the muslims that were killing xtians in their hundreds? It is unfortunate that this hypocrite is trying to justify jubilation over the death of their former governor because he did not give them a free hand to continue mindless killing of innocent xtians. Sheikh Gumi should bury his head in shame.

Gumi

1). Whoever kills must be fetched to face justice no matter how long and from whichever side he comes from. and 2.) Muslims and Xtians should not just feast hypocritically together at Christmas or Sallah calling for peace on lips but should rather unite in identifying, fishing and insisting on prosecuting thieves in Government who deny us basics of life and are associating with us both churches and mosques. 3). Our problem in Nigeria is socio-economic(when u hear marginalization, settler syndrome etc,)desperation to corner "Awoof" oil resources that nobody sweat for. 4)Most of the so-called leaders are just there to spend(steal?) resources with bunches of lobbyist around them, while majority of the population are wasting away in misery with no skill(Degrees? unemployable) to survive. 4) It is unfortunate.

Kukah is a Bigot

In a free and fair election a christian cannot be a governor in kaduna, by rigging just like the case of Yakowa. So also a muslim cannot be a governor in Plateau. Why did kukah not tell governor Jang to stop his politics of exclusion and Apartheid against the muslims in Plateau. Why is he silent when muslims were denied chairmanship of muslim dominated jos north local government by jonah jang which led to massacre of majority muslims. why is he silent when Dariye denied muslim chairmanship of jos north poverty office which to killings of majority muslims. Why is he silent when muslims were massacred in zonkwa and yakowa refused to send security men to stop the genocide.
Instead of uniting the people to be peace lovers you are further creating division by your unwanted and deliberately misguided comments. You cannot intimidate Gov Yero to dance to your tune. You must accept the decision of God in bringing justice to Kaduna people.

Instead of trying to unite

Instead of trying to unite the different religious groups in Kaduna, kukah is doing the opposite. He has allowed his bitterness for the death of christian governor of kaduna and return of muslim as a governor to becloud his sense of reasoning. Who said there is no vacancy for christian in kaduna government house? politics is a game of numbers and christians in kaduna are a minority, they have one senatorial district, kaduna south, while kaduna north and kaduna central are predominantly muslims that is why muslim senators always emerge in kaduna north and central. kukah is telling lies that kaduna has a balanced population.

May Allah bless u Gumi for telling the truth.

May Allah bless u for telling the truth. I wonder why people are commending Yakowa and unfairly castigating us for celebrating his exciting death. This is the man that forced himself on us Governor and supported his christian people in their genocide against the muslims in Zonkwa that led death of over 500 innocent muslims. And Kukah is shamlessly telling lies about him. May Allah continue to eliminate the oppressors amin.

RIGHT TALK

GUMI U ARE RIGHT THOSE THAT ARE AGAINST WHAT U SAID DO NOT HAVE ANY EVIDENCE. GOD BLESS U. THOSE THAT SAID SOMEBODY IS PART OF BOKO HARAM. HOW DO THEY KNOW? WHO TOLD THEM? THEY MUST BE PART OF IT.

You don't have to say that

You don't have to say that Islam is the religion of peace. It is clear enough my brother. The whole world can see how peaceful Muslims and Muslim states are. "You too correct." More of this.

Kukah and Addiction to violence.

Kukah and his diabolical brethren called the Southern Kaduna Professionals are addicted to violence.What Kukah is inciting his deliquent tribesmen is that if a Southern Zaria person is not Governor then there should be rancour, mischief and violence.
He also want to divert attention of the public from the ineptitude of his henchman Jonathan- Massive corruption, shameless cover up, Boko haram,Berom/Kataf haram, JTF haram,election rigging, air crashes, accidents etc. Kukah should stop serving Jonathan and PDP in search of power, instead he should repent, uphold the teachings of jesus and obey Allah.
