Actress Rahama Sadau has been charged For Blasphemy over risqué photos on social media and could face a death sentence.
If you recall, an Abuja resident, Malam Lawal Muhammad Gusau, lodged a complaint with the Inspector-General of Police about the legendary actress, who ordered her arrest.
The Kannywood actress, Rahama Sadau will be appearing in a sharia court in Kaduna over allegations of blasphemy levelled against her after sharing racy photos on social media.
According to conditions listed by Mr Lawal Muhammad Gusau that must be met before she defends herself.
Rahama Sadau’s lawyer must be a Muslim.
The work of the police must stop their duty to take Mercy to the Islamic Sharia Court.
Mr Lawal gave the names of the teachers he wanted to sit and judge Rahama on the blasphemy
No lawyer from Kaduna or even the North as a whole should interfere in Rahama Sadau’s statement.
The case against the actress “is a matter relating to the Hadiths of the Prophet and the Glorious Holy Qur’an and not a matter relating to the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria”.
Recall in Kano last two month, Sharia court sentenced a 22-year-old gospel singer to death by hanging for alleged blasphemy in a song the singer wrote.
Also last month Omar Farouq, a 13-year-old was sentenced in Kano State to a 10-year prison sentence with manual labor over alleged blasphemy.
According to Shafiʽi madhhab one of the four schools of Islamic law in Sunni Islam Death is mandatory in cases of blasphemy, for both Muslim men and women, and repentance is not accepted.
Even in the Christian holy scriptures In Leviticus 24:16 the punishment for blasphemy is death.
“Anyone who blasphemes the name of the Lord is to be put to death. The entire assembly must stone them. Whether foreigner or native-born, when they blaspheme the Name they are to be put to death.”
