Bishops of Niger wrote in their message to the Muslim community on the occasion of the feast of Tabaski,also called Eid ul Adha, “When those who kill in God’s name are engulfed in the horror of terror, we address urgent prayers so that through the example of Abraham, who humbly allows to be guided by the will of God, divert their weapons and their hatred for a sacrifice that God really likes.”

The Bishops of Niger echoed what was said by Pope Francis in his meeting with the authorities during his recent trip to Albania: “No one should consider themselves to be the ‘armour’ of God while planning and carrying out acts of violence and oppression! Religion is far from causing division, it is the very foundation of freedom and brotherhood”.
