The Muslim Congress National Headquarters joins other Islamic groups to empathize with the family of late Chief Gani Adetola-Kaseem (SAN) and the Muslim ummah on the death of this legal Icon. He lived a worthy life and worked hards for Islam at local and national levels.
When others are too timid to identify with Islam and Muslims, he raised his head high and damned the material consequences.
Chief Gani Adetola-Kaseem (SAN) at the peak of Islamophobic tendency in Lagos State defended the Hijab at the lower courts up to the appeal court. He won victory for the oppressed Muslim girl child on Thursday, July 21, 2016, when the five-man panel of judges declared that the ban of the Hijab in Lagos schools violated the fundamental human rights of Muslim students and ruled that the move was unconstitutional.
May Allah accept his sacrifices and act of kindness and grant him paradise Amin.
