The Islamic Motion of Nigeria (IMN), in any other case referred to as Shi’ites, has set the nationwide flags of the USA of America (USA) and Israel on hearth throughout a protest in Abuja.
Although the Shi’ites have been protesting towards the continued detention of their chief, Sheikh Ibraheem El-Zakyzaky, by the federal authorities, the burning of the flags of the 2 nations has nothing to do with El-Zakzaky’s situation.
Their motion yesterday was in solidarity with the individuals of Palestine who’re allegedly terrorised by the Israeli authorities with assist from the USA.
Abdullahi Musa, the Secretary of IMN’s Tutorial Discussion board, instructed newsmen that the burning of the flags was a yearly ritual by Shi’ites worldwide on the final Friday of the Muslim month of Ramadan as instructed by the chief of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, late Sheikh Khomeini.
He mentioned, “In the present day (Friday) is final of Ramadan and we burnt the flags in solidarity with the individuals of Palestine.
“The Palestinians are being killed, their settlements are being destroyed, and forcefully occupied by the Jews.
“So, Imam Khomeini before he died, declared every last Friday of the month of Ramadan as a day to show solidarity to the people of Palestine.”
