Donald Trump’s Victory: Read What MURIC Advised Nigerian Muslims To Do

Against the background of the emergence of the Republican Party candidate, Donald Trump, as the president-elect of the United States, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has appealed to Nigerian Muslims to suspend planned trips to the US until they know which way the cat will jump.

It also advised immigrant Muslims residing in the US to return to their countries or be prepared for harsh treatments, including increased Islamophobic attacks.

Trump had defeated the Democratic Party candidate, Hillary Clinton, in the presidential election held on Tuesday.

In a statement, on Friday, by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, MURIC said considering Trump’s “Americanisation of virtually everything” and “tortuous isolationism and a pathological obsession with Islamophobia,” his emergence as the next president of the United States had serious implications for Muslims in that country and elsewhere around the world.
“The contemptuous treatment of Muslims travelling in or out of America has long been a matter of serious concern to advocates of free movement and Allah-given fundamental human rights.

“Coupled with this is the horrendous policy of rendition whereby Muslims are kidnapped en route other destinations and forcefully taken to the dreaded Guatemala to face America’s notorious waterboarding and other forms of inhuman treatment.

“The advent of Donald Trump is the last straw that broke the camel’s back. The American president-elect has divided America along racial and religious lines. He threatened to close mosques. He also swore to give Muslims a special data base in order to control terrorism.

“Trump may be an iconoclast but the Americans who voted for him were not deaf. They heard him loud and clear. They heard all his threats. The victory of Trump, particularly coming hot on the heels of Brexit, means that Western democracies are jettisoning globalization for nationalism.

“MURIC respects the wish of Americans to stand by their national interest. We call on Muslims around the world to also respect the wish of the American people to be left alone.

“Nonetheless, we reiterate our avowed rejection of racist and hate speeches. We disown violent groups like Al-Qaidah and ISIS who instigate Muslims to kill Americans and attack American and Western interests.

“We urge Muslims around the world to nurse no malice against Americans over Trump’s victory and the likely fallout. It should be noted that a few Americans support Trump’s weird policies. He won the election via the Electoral College but received fewer votes than Hillary Clinton. The victory of Trump reveals the paradoxical underbelly of the world’s greatest democracy. American minority has had its way”, MURIC’s statement said.

      • WillieBravo

        Baba the divisions have always been there but America has been managing it until this man came with his divide and win tactic, the divisions are now sharper than they have ever been.

    • badmos

      How is Clinton better dan him. His words are just mere campaign. Or do u realise what FBI exposed few hours to the main election concerning Clinton?

      • WillieBravo

        I even hear he has started backtracking on some of his initial comments during his scampaign. The problem with that is that people would always remind him of the things hour has said before. I’m not surprised though. He’s a serial liar from the get go. As for Clinton, my brother she’s a million times better than the bigot. Even if u may claim she’s corrupt, I would much rather have a corrupt person there than have somebody who sees no good in others but only himself and his race.

        • badmos

          All what he said are all campaign strategies. His vice is a very good Christian. He just said what an average white America wants to hear. According to report, Clinton always supply and support ISIS and if it’s true, she shuld b in jail.

          • WillieBravo

            Yes he said what the whites wanted to hear but was offensive to the races whom he didn’t care how they felt. Now look at the massive protests against his emergence. He’s going down as the most unpopular candidate to ever become president, that is if folks don’t block him out from getting inaugurated come jan21st. I like his vice though, the man by far to me looks more temperamentally stable than Trump. And All that Clinton talk is the right media propaganda. No one can substantiate it.

          • badmos

            That is y we need to wait and see what comes out of him wen sworn in.

    • Cornel Nwankwo

      My guy, you talk like you have witnessed Trump being a president before…. ….
      You sound so sure with your words

      • WillieBravo

        The man did divide and rule to win, he helped to sharpen the divisions in the country with his statements that’s my grouse with him.

        • Cornel Nwankwo

          Don’t mind his statement for now, let’s watch his governance

          • WillieBravo

            Words matter at his level bro, they really do.

      • Kenny D Osonwa

        No mind William.

    • Cornel Nwankwo

      Let’s calm down and watch what the man got for America knowing too well that America isn’t Nigeria and as such if trump 💳 misbehaves, you know what Americans can do

      • WillieBravo

        They are already showing him with their massive protests all across the country that it’s not business as usual.

        • Cornel Nwankwo

          Please don’t mind such protest, they are hypocrites

      • Kenny D Osonwa

        What would they do, there is rule of law.. .
