MAB Condemns the Kidnappings in Nigeria

More than 200 girls were kidnapped over three weeks ago from their boarding school in the north-eastern state of Borno in Nigeria. Boko Haram militants have claimed responsibility for these kidnappings.

The Muslim Association of Britain (MAB) expressed its deepest regret and sorrow for the kidnapped girls and their families. It further urged the kidnappers to release the girls into safe custody of authorities so that they reunite with their families without any further harm and distress.

MAB President Dr Omer El-Hamdoon today spoke about his upset: “It is indeed such an awful crime to be committed against any civilian. And it is worse to see that a Muslim would do such an act; as the teachings of Islam are totally against this.”
