Reno Omokri has cautioned against categorising Islam as a negative religion. After a female student at the Shehu Shagari College of Education Sokoto was brutally murdered by classmates who suspected her of blasphemy, numerous Nigerians criticised the Muslim faith.
In an Instagram post, Reno published a photo of the Fulani Islamic cleric who helped save 262 Christians by sheltering them in his mosque in Plateau State on June 23, 2018, along with the following caption:
'All of you saying Northern Muslims are bad and barbaric have forgotten that a Northern Fulani Muslim, Imam Abubakar Abdullahi, saved the lives of hundreds of Christians on June 23, 2018. There are good and bad people in every religion. Face the culprits, not their region or religion! Deborah’s murder over alleged blasphemy is condemnable. However, do not get carried away. Mind your utterances. Let us blame the perpetrators, not Muslims and Northerners.''
