"If a leader errs it is against the teaching of Islam for us to go to the mosque and publicise it.”

Kano State Hisbah Board has stated the reasons why it has two different approaches to treating the rich and the poor for moral sins in the state.

The Islamic police has come under fire in recent times for not going after the rich Umars who go against Islamic moral teachings the way the go against the poor.

Dr Aliyu Musa Aliyu Kibiya, Director Kano Hisbah Board, in an interview with the Kano based Freedom Radio admitted that the Board indeed has different ways of dealing with the highly placed individuals and the common people.

He argued that it is unethical for them as a moral police to publicise the wrongs of the people in power.

“We see things differently. If a leader errs it is against the teaching of Islam for us to go to the mosque and publicise it.”

“We have ways to reach out to leaders and preach to them, and our job is to deliver a message, but it is Allah that guides,” he said.

According to him, “The way and manner in which you will call reprimand a common man and a leader differs.”

On his part the Commander General of the Board, Sheikh Muhammad Haruna Ibn Sina, explained that his organization on different accounts had arrested the children of very influential people in the state.
