Controversy over atheist arrested for blaspheming Prophet Muhammad

Some Nigerians, on Wednesday, expressed dismay over the arrest of an atheist, Mubarak Bala, by the Kaduna State Police Command for a Facebook post in which he allegedly insulted Prophet Mohammed.

Bala’s arrest at his residence in Kaduna followed a petition by a group of lawyers to the Commissioner of Police in Kano State to prosecute him for his “inciting comments.”

Bala is expected to be prosecuted for blasphemy, a crime which contravenes the Sharia Penal Code.Nigerians reacting on the issue criticised the arrest.

A user, Mattos, said, “Police, you don’t have work. Thieves and kidnappers are everywhere, you are wasting time on religious nonsense.”

Tsunami1earthquake said, “But this man also insults Christianity; so why are they overreacting over this? My friends, just practise your religion; don’t mind what someone else says about you. Allow God almighty to make His judgment. That’s all.”

Pastor Taiwo Olufemi said, “The bottom line is, The Truth has the power to fight for and vindicate itself.”
