Hijab Crisis: Kwara Is Muslim State, Take Your Missionary Schools To Rivers By John Owen Nwachukwu MURIC said that Kwara is predominantly Muslim State, advising missionary schools owners to take their business to Rivers State instead of trying to change the identity of Muslim children by force, adding that Governor Nyesom Wike is waiting with open arms to accept them.. The group was reacting to the hijab imbroglio going on in the State, wherein some public school teachers were said to have forced female Muslim students to remove their hijab within the school premises. The development has generated controversy across the State, leading to the closure of ten schools by the State government. Wading into the matter, MURIC has vowed to take all necessary constitutional measures to stop the oppression of innocent female Muslim pupils across Kwara State. The position of the Islamic human rights group was contained in a statement issued by its director, Professor Ishaq Akintola. According to MURIC, “On our own part, we will not allow… evil to prevail in Kwara as they did in some states in the South West on the issue of hijab.
