Controversial Islamic Cleric Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has stated he is also a victim of banditry.
He made this statement on a recent interview with Roots TV.
All those we met, all of them have stopped being involved in this kidnapping. The ones doing it now are rogue ones who we did not sit down with.
Our processes were arrested and stopped by the authorities, which is not interested in it,” he said.My very close relative…One of the life time driver of my father. His son — a soldier – eleven of them were ambushed and killed.
So, I am a victim of banditry. Then, should I seek revenge and more and more soldiers will die or do I forgive so that most souls will be saved?”
So, I think it is logical… It is better to stop the more killings and have peace.
