Islam Prohibits Criticism of Leaders, That’s Why we Only Arrest the Poor- Hisbah Police

The Kano State arm of the Sharia Police also known as Hisbah have revealed why they do not arrest the rich.

The Sharia police have been heavily criticised by many for enforcing laws like the recent ban on the use of mannequins and the sentencing of an actress to six months religious coaching.

In a chat with journalists, the Director-General of the Hisbah Board, Aliyu Musa Kibiya said Islamic law discourages open criticism of leaders.

He added that there is a difference in the way they treat the poor and the rich because of what Islam teaches.
