In the name of Allah , the Beneficent, the Merciful Political Forum of the Islamic movement is a Forum under the leadership of his Eminence Sheikh Zakzaky(H)

Word has been circulating regarding some misconceptions about the recently established Political Forum of the Islamic movement in Nigeria. This has necessitated this press release in order to clear the air, as we're sure that many of the grumbles are due to misinformation.

A few weeks back, after lengthy discussions with the leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H), the Political Forum was formed, with the view to further the following objectives:

• Protecting the rights of the adherents of the movement and the interests of the Islamic movement
• Facilitating peaceful coexistence and harmony among Nigerians
• Ensuring equal distribution of Nigerian resources
• Safeguarding lives and properties of the people
• Maintaining diplomatic ties and striving towards social justice
• Sensitization of the public on their rights and responsibilities, etc.

In addition to the afore-mentioned objectives, the Political Forum will help serve as a wedge against the activities of some individuals who often go around perpetrating some inappropriate acts in the name of the Islamic movement. Hence, the forum was made to consist of notable persons in the Islamic movement, under the directives of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H).

Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky has been known to be an epitome of kindness and humanity, as well as a noble proponent of justice and equity. On many occasions, he has been seen to extend a helping hand to those in need of financial aid and even protection, especially during ethno-centric clashes and even post-election crises. Therefore, it shouldn't be a surprise that he has vetted and approved the initiative behind the Political Forum of the Islamic movement.

In as much as the names and even the contact numbers of some people in the Forum were compiled and publicized, with due respect, any person that belongs to the Political Forum that engaged himself in any act that is against the principle and policies of the movement , and also the objectives of the Forum will be disowned. Therefore, we do not recognize any person behind any statements that go against the fundamental principles of the Islamic movement.

The Political Forum has, from inception, been under the directives of the leader of the Islamic movement, as he was the one that shed light on the principles and policies of the Islamic movement, as well as the status of political activities in the movement. According to him, these activities could be obligatory, recommended or forbidden, depending on the circumstances, and none of the scenarios goes against the fundamental principles of the Islamic movement!

After all, it is in line with the perspective of our noble Prophet, that Islam should not just be regarded as a set of prescriptions or as a kind of philosophical system, but an all-encompassing system with sound socio-political angles.

The activities of the Political Forum revolve round diplomatically facilitating peaceful coexistence among Nigerians, while preventing unwarranted bloodshed and persecution by the Nigerian authorities. It is devastating that some people might misunderstand the forum at the initial stages. To prevent that, we have undertaken visits to sensitize people on the activities of the forum.

But alas! Some elements would still spread propaganda against it, or spread rumours without confirmation. It is to that effect that we request that any inquiries about the Political Forum should be directed towards its designated CWC coordinators , whose names and contacts information are not hidden.

Below is the number and email that can be contacted prior to the release of the comprehensive list in due course.
