The Senator representing Kaduna Central District in the National Assembly, Shehu Sani has urged Muslims to lead the war against terrorism and retrieve their faith from those who use it for selfish ends.
He said: “Islam is confronted by two dangers on two fronts from the inside and from the outside.
“The inside forces are those who manipulate and misuse the religion in furtherance of their extremist or political or violent agenda. And the outside are those with a mindset set and conditioned to hate Muslims and anything associated with Islam.
“Muslim intellectuals must spearhead the neutralization and liquidation of knowledge and schools of thought that encourage extremism and terrorism.
“Nigeria, my country, has suffered from violence resulting in the death of tens of thousands and displacement millions.
