Some Christians in Kachia Local Government Area of Kaduna State have assisted and joined Muslims in clearing grass at a mosque.
The religious service was done in preparation for Eid prayer during Sallah.
Mr. Daniel Bitrus, who led the team of volunteers to join Muslims counterparts in the selfless service, said they carried out the exercise to promote religious oneness and harmony.
The Christians have joined Muslims to clear the grass and get rid of dirt in the surrounding of the mosque. The leader of the team said the selfless exercise took them two days.
“We came here to support our brothers towards cutting down the grass and to also clear the dirt in the mosque and its surrounding, with the aim of promoting peace and unity. We hope to continue doing this every year to promote religious tolerance in the area.”
Mallam Ibrahim Tasiu, the Secretary, Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), Kachia local government chapter, has expressed his happiness over the impressive turnout of Christians during the selfless service. He confessed that the Christian youths arrived the Eid ground for the selfless service before Muslims got there.
