The Hisbah Commission for the Promotion of Islamic Teachings in Kano State has finally reacted to the dress worn by Zahra Nasir Bayero, the daughter of the Emir of Bichi, during her bridal shower.
Zahra Nasir Bayero will marry Yusuf Buhari, the son of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari.
She wore a figure-hugging lacy white dress with transparent parts around the shoulders and arms for her bridal shower. Furthermore, she did not wear a head covering, and this raised questions regarding why the morality police in northern Nigeria have been silent about her mode of dressing but will not hesitate to ”punish” poor Muslims if they wear the same outfit.
Hisbah is accused by Nigerians of being biased in favor of rich Muslim children.
The Hisbah commander told the BBC that the Sultan’s daughter is not above the law and should lead by example if she wishes to be blessed in her marriage.
Ibn Sina also criticized those who spread images and videos of Zahra Bayero in the dress, calling it a crime to spread such images.
