Muslim Right Concern (MURIC) has blamed poor parenting for the rise in rape cases in the country.
In a Sallah message through its Executive Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, on Friday, the Islamic group blamed parents who fail to teach their male children how to respect the opposite sex.
According to MURIC, the male children consequent upon the above, grow up to begin to treat women and girls like underdogs.
“In particular, many parents fail to teach their male children how to respect the other sex,” said the Islamic group in the statement.
“They, therefore, grow up treating women and girls like underdogs. Consequently, most young boys commit rape without knowing the implications.
“Parents need to properly tutor them to respect women and girls and to know the legal implication of rape.
“Nigerians should borrow a leaf from the lessons of Id al-Kabir and from Islam in general. If all Nigerian parents tutor their children the way Prophet Luqman (peace be upon him) did in Qur’an 31:13 – 19, our youths will be better guided.
“Luqman told his son to ‘enjoin righteousness and forbid evil’. Rape is evil. It is an act of wickedness. It is barbaric.
“In the same vein, Prophet Ismail (PBUH) obeyed his father even when his father informed him that Allah commanded him to sacrifice his son.
“He told his father, ‘Do what you’re told. So, you will see that I am one of those who are patient’ (Glorious Qur’an 37:102 – 103).”
MURIC further emphasised the need for parents to tutor their children properly, stating that it will drastically be reduced if duly complied with.
It added that above all, it will be reduced if children follow the instructions.
