Blasphemy: Deborah crossed the line, Says Abuja National Mosque Imam, Ibrahim Maqari



The Imam of the National Mosque Abuja, Ibrahim Maqari, has reacted to the lynching of Deborah Samuel, a Christian student of the Shehu Shagari College of Education, who was murdered in Sokoto State by her colleagues, over alleged blasphemy.

According to the Imam, the deceased crossed the line.

On Thursday, Deborah’s coursemate accused her of insulting the Prophet of Islam via a voice note sent to a class Whatsapp group.

Reacting to the development via his verified Twitter handle, Mr Maqari stressed that the Muslims have some red lines which must not be crossed.

He said: “It should be known to everyone that we the Muslims have some red lines beyond which MUST NOT be crossed.

“The dignity of the Prophet, PBUH, is at the forefront of the red lines. If our grievances are not properly addressed, then we should not be criticized for addressing them ourselves,” he posted
