“It’s Anti-Islam” – Hisbah To Invite Shatu Garko’s Parents Over Miss Nigeria Participation

Kano State Hisbah Board said it will invite the parents of Shatu Garko, the winner of 2021 Miss Nigeria, over their daughter’s participation in the beauty pageant.

"It’s Anti-Islam" - Hisbah To Invite Shatu Garko’s Parents Over Miss Nigeria Participation

KanyiDaily recalls that Shatu Garko, an 18-year-old horse rider from Kano, recently beat 17 other contestants to become the first hijab-wearing model to wear the Miss Nigeria crown.

During an interview with BBC Pidgin, Haruna Ibn-Sina, Kano Hisbah board commandant, announced plans to invite Garko’s parents for interrogation over the action of their daughter.

Ibn-Sina described Garko’s participation in the beauty pageant as “illegal” because it’s against Islamic tenets, adding that such act could encourage other girls to do the same.

He said, “We (Hisbah) has confirmed that Shatu Garko is a Muslim from Kano state and her parents come from Garko LGA. Kano is a Sharia state and this is why we will not allow the matter to die like that.

“We will invite the parents to talk to them about the actions of their daughter and the fact that what she did is illegal in Islam. This is to make them know that she cannot continue that path and also stop other girls from copying her.”

To shed more light on his point, the Kano Hisbah commandant cited several verses in the Quran and teachings in Islam to show Garko’s action is “illegal”.

He added, “In Islam, it is forbidden for anyone to participate in a beauty contest. A lot of things happen in such contest which is against Islam.

“For instance, there is usually a lot of people usually exposure their body exposure during the event while such contest teaches girls not to be shy and reserved.”

Ibn-Sina also claimed that the organisers of such beauty pageants are at the risk of God’s wrath.

KanyiDaily had reported how actress Sadiya Haruna was arrested, detained and arraigned by Hisbah for “uploading sexual contents on her social media handles”.
