Worthy Christian News » Peace for Christians, Muslims in Kaduna

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

ABUJA, NIGERIA (Worthy News)– Peace overtures between Christians and Muslims in Kaduna state, Nigeria, briefly became a reality as both religions joined together on Easter Monday to celebrate, according to allAfrica news.

For years, religious unrest in Kaduna had led to violence and destruction, creating divides between Christian and Muslim, but on Easter Monday, Pastor Yohanna Buru, Chairman and founder of the Peace, Revival and Reconciliation Foundation of Nigeria, said peace was why he invited Muslims to rejoice with Christians.

"We want to break the cord of hatred between Muslims and Christians in this state and in Nigeria at large, and we believe that little by little, we will overcome the threat to peace and peaceful coexistence," he said.

"Every person whether young or old, male or female, Christian or Muslim must contribute their quota of peace because without peace, we cannot live; without peace, we cannot progress, neither can we practice our faith. We must all preach peace. Stop spreading rumor, stop saying what is not there and don't hate anybody because of his/her tribe or religion; we are all created by God."

Salihu Ibrahim, chairman of Sabon Kawo Youths Development Association, said Kaduna state is divided along religious lines, unlike when Christians and Muslims, irrespective of tribe, lived and celebrated together in peace.

"But now the seed of discord has been sown between Christians and Muslims and as such we run away from each other," Ibrahim said. "Muslims no longer live with Christians because of fear, and vice versa …"

On that same note, Ibrahim Ahmadu, president of the Rigasa Action and Awareness Forum, said Christians and Muslims who formerly attended school together, have now gone their separate ways.

However, on last Easter Monday, those ways briefly became one.
