Al Mu’minaat, the Believing Women Organisation has warned government functionaries who often discriminate against hijab-wearing ladies to desist from heating the polity.

This is as the organisation commended the Osun State government for its quick intervention in preventing another religious conflagration.
The Amirah of the organisation, Hajiyah Mulikat Abiola Hassan hailed the sagacity of the authorities in resolving the hijab imbroglio between Muslim women and the Charms Plc., a biometric capturing company. 

She said this in a press release made available to our correspondent.

The Amirah said timely intervention of Governor Rauf Aregbesola succeeded in preventing the breakdown of law and order in the state.

It would be recalled that  Chams Plc had refused to capture female Muslims who refuse to remove thier hijab and expose their ears.

But a day after the iWitness NG report of the action of the Cham’s Plc, the company recalled the affected Muslim females for capturing and apologised.

The company was officially engaged by the state government for biometric capture of it’s workers.
Mrs Hassan wondered why the Osun State biometric capturing would be different from other national and global exercise 
“We have done many capturing without removing hijab or exposing our ears:- when going on Hajj, at immigration office for international passport, National ID Card, Driver’s Licence, Voter Registration, SIM Card registration, IPPIS, BVN registration and opening of Bank account among others. 
“Enemies of this nation who wish to drag the country into religious crisis must beware of similar calamity in their personal lives if they do not desist. 
“They must know that the era of docility has gone for good and Muslim Sisters are more than ever before, ready to defend their rights in a most civilised manner and within the ambit of the law. Let all public officials and private individuals who are involved in this uncivilised act desist forthwith.”
The Amirah who commended the management of Chams Plc for obeying the law of the land, also appreciated the newly recruited staff of Osun who remained calm despite being discriminated against and harassed because of hijab. She lauded the perseverance and maturity displayed during the ordeal. 
Meanwhile, Hajiyah Hassan commiserated with the victims of Kaduna killings and the recent bombings at the University of Maiduguri even as she pray for the repose of the departed souls. 
 “Let me first, on behalf of the Al Mu’minaat organisation condone with the families of those who lost their lives in the needless killings in Southern Kaduna and the suicide attacks in the University of Maiduguri. This is indeed a sad development. 
“While we congratulate the government and the Army on the recent achievement at the Sambisa Forest, it is important for our security operatives to improve on intelligence gathering be equipped with adequate intelligence equipment.”
The Amirah further appealed to the militants, the insurgents, and the terrorists to embrace peace just as she prayed for God’s guidance for President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration as it struggles to midwife the country out of recession.
