The Muslim Students Society of Nigeria, MSSN, has called for urgent investment by Muslims in the area of Islamized digitization and ICT content.
MSSN made the call in a statement, jointly signed by Malam Muhammad Bin Isa, the national president, and Malam Auwal Yunus, the secretary, respectively, issued at the end of its 79th National Islamic Holiday Course (NIVC), held in Ilorin.
According to the statement, investment in Islamic digitization has become necessary to preserve the future generation in the rapidly developing world of technology.
“There is an urgent need for spiritual and moral training and investment using Islamized digitization and ICT content development for the preservation of our future generation,” he said.
The Islamic organization instructed the Muslim Ummah to adopt all possible legal measures against any violation of the freedom and religious rights of the Muslim sisters, with due sanction for the offenders.
He described as shameful “the level of decadence in Tarbiyah or good manners among the ummah in general, adding that Western civilization and the craving for mobile phones have a negative social influence on children’s education.”
While applauding the recent Supreme Court ruling on the hijab, MSSN denounced “the persistent insult or denial of freedom of expression of Muslim students in other parts of the country.”
