The Chief Imam of Ansar-Ud-Deen, Abdulrahman Ahmad has reacted to actress Etinosa’s choice to burn the Quran.
In a statement dished out through the cleric, he said:
“It is a pity for us as a people and a country that we are where we are today. I don’t like to comment on issues like this because I think it is below the dignitary of religious people and those with conscience and goodwill to be commenting on issues like this. More or less, individuals are trying to acquire fame and we should not help them. Otherwise, this issue should not be discussed at all; it is bad news. It is a sad commentary. It questions our collective morality; why should we be discussing issues like this and celebrating it; popularizing a wayward individual.
Whether it is the Bible, the Quran or any other holy book; should not popularize or sensationalize it. Whether something happens to them-(the actor) or not.
“I condemn, without any reservation anyone who desecrates the Bible as much as I condemn anyone who attempts to desecrate the Quran. It isn’t something that we should be discussing. We should not even look at it from the point of view of- ‘if something is going to happen to her or not’. That someone dared to insult and violate the religious sensibility of others is condemnable. It is worse than hate speech because it could set the nation in tune reaction . It could be destabilizing. It is not part of anybody’s freedom to insult the sensibility either cultural or religion of others.
“We should not to give prominence to this waywardness. It is a collective insult on Nigerians as a deeply religious community. I condemn whoever desecrates the Bible and Quran. There are consequences for any of these actions. If the law enforcement agencies don’t act on unwarranted provocation; then they should also not act when the repercussions start to come. This is my opinion.
Nigerians have stormed the social media page of the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board, JAMB over a grammatical blunder on popular social network, Twitter.
A prospective candidate on the board’s website had encountered an error and had contact support for assistance, which did not come on time. So he decided to make this acknowledged on social media via JAMB’s authentic Twitter page.
But in response to his query, the social media handler of the page made a serious grammatical blunder, which right now went viral throughout the platform.
The handler had written ‘Am’ as a substitute of ‘I’m’

Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has slammed actress Etinosa Idemudia over her threat to desecrate the Quran just as she did to the Bible.
In his post, Uche Maduagwu advised Etinosa to beg BBNaija reality TV show winner Mercy Eke for sense.
@etinosaofficial The bible or Quran is not responsible for your spiritual mumu, beg #Mercy for intelligence… Where exactly were you when God was distributing common sense in #EdoState? At your age, you dont know how to behave like an adult in public?
Wait, even if the bushy #hair on your armpit is not lecturing you about how to #respect the holy bible, why is it not giving you the boldness to use the Quran for ashtray too? At least you should be able to...
