Islamic, Christian clerics seek peace in southern Kaduna
A team of Islamic and Christian clerics at the weekend began peace campaigns to some troubled communities in southern Kaduna to canvass harmonious relationship.
Led by Pastor Yohanna Buru, the team of Imams and clerics solicited peaceful co-existence, and better understanding among Christians and Muslims in Maraban Kajuru community.
He explained that their mission was to sensitise the public on the importance of living in peace and harmony, while appealing to the youths to shun all forms of violence.
He added that the peace campaign would take them to the troubled areas to meet with the Adara, Gbagyi, Hausa and Fulani communities in the area.
The pastor stressed the importance of forgiveness among communities, while urging the youths to be law abiding.
He further disclosed that both the Qur’an and Bible preach peace and unity, noting that Islam and Christianity teach their followers how to live in peace with their neighbours to have an everlasting unity.
“Remember that we all are from one family of Adam and Eve, we are believers in one God, as we all believe in Holy Bible and Qur’an. We are brothers and sisters, and must therefore learn how to live in peace and unity among ourselves.
“Our holy scriptures have guided us on how to accommodate each one, and be our neighbour’s best friend. We must be united to shun the evil that is generating crises from one place and another,” he said.
