Dr. Hakeem Baba-Ahmed, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kaduna State, has described Fatima Ribadu’s wedding dress “as totally unbecoming of her faith and her culture”
Recall that the wedding ceremony of Aliyu Abubakar, son of the former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar and Fatima, daughter of former EFCC Chairman took place in Asokoro, Abuja on Saturday.
The beautiful bride, who graduated from Nigerian Turkish International College, Abuja in 2015, wore a stunning couture wedding dress by a prominent Dubai fashion designer
. Her photos have since gone viral on Facebook with many Muslims condemning the gown, which they described as ‘unIslamic’
Dr. Baba Ahmed stated this via his Twitter account on Sunday, appealing to Muslim youths and parents to stop copying cultures that are not Islamic.
“Today I saw pictures of a Muslim bride dressed in a manner totally unbecoming of her faith and culture,” he wrote.
“Fewer things made me sadder. I appeal to our young people and us parents to stop aping cultures that are not ours,” he added.
He, however, appealed to his followers not to comment on his tweet with name calling and insults.
Responding to the tweet, one Harun Elbinawi said that Sharia laws are used only against the poor in Northern Nigeria.
“They promote Islamic Shari’a among the poor masses of Northern Nigeria but nobody trample on Islamic norms, values and standard like them. These extremely corrupt Northern oligarchy uses Islam as an opiate of the masses.” he wrote
