MURIC slams NOUN for fixing examination on Fridays

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) accused the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN) of drafting an examination schedule that included Jumu’ah prayers on Thursday.

It further claimed that the arrangement was intended to have Muslim applicants take exams under stress and to make Muslim invigilators work in a demoralizing environment.

MURIC also sought an unequivocal apology from NOUN for allegedly causing incalculable mental distress to Muslim applicants and employees, which it said would damage their exam results.

Professor Ishaq Akintola, the Director of the MURIC, made the announcement in an Abuja statement issued to Journalist.

According to the Islamic organization, all test papers scheduled for the Jumu’ah period between Friday, May 6 and Friday, May 13, 2022 have been canceled. The organization called the timetable anti-Muslim and neo-imperialist, and said it impeded on Muslim students’ and staff’s Allah-given fundamental rights.

“For those who may be asking what is wrong with forcing Muslim students and personnel to write and invigilate tests during the Friday Jumu’ah period, it is equivalent to forcing Christian students and employees to write and invigilate examinations on Sunday mornings,” he says.
