Shaykh Abdul-Razzaq ‎referred to the oppression carried out by the Nigerian army against ‎Hujjat al-Islam Shaykh Ibrahim Zakzaky and stated, “The Islamic Ummah will confront the ‎oppressive actions carried out against Shaykh Zakzaky.”‎

RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Shaykh Maher Abdul-Razzaq, the ‎head of Lebanon’s Reform and Unity Movement, referred to the deteriorating situation and ‎health of the Nigerian Shi’ah leader, Hujjat al-Islam Shaykh Ibrahim Zakzaky, said, ‎‎“Whenever we witness the silence of international assemblies in relation to human rights ‎abuses, we must look at the behind-the-scenes involvement of the United States because ‎the international community and many human rights organizations have become obedient to ‎the United States.”‎

The Lebanese Sunni cleric stressed, “For this reason, whenever the rights of religious ‎scholars, including Shaykh Zakzaky and other scholars who present true Islam to the Islamic ‎Ummah, are violated and crimes are committed against them, the international community ‎and most human rights organizations sat with their hands closed, without taking any action ‎to support these scholars.”‎

Shaykh Abdul-Razzaq ‎emphasized Saudi Arabia’s role in the crimes of the Nigerian army ‎against Hujjat al-Islam Zakzaky, and said, “Saudi Arabia is involved in sedition and advancing ‎the plans of the United States and its plots against the Islamic Ummah and targets the ‎brotherhood of Muslims in Nigeria, Syria, Iraq and Yemen. Saudi Arabia has become a tool ‎for implementing the Zionist regime’s plans in the region.”‎

His Eminence added, “Muslims must stand against Saudi interference, which has led to harsh ‎actions against Shaykh Zakzaky because Saudi officials are carrying out the same seditious ‎activities in Nigeria as they are carrying out in other Arab and Islamic countries in order to ‎target the freedom and human dignity of Muslims.”‎

Shaykh ‎Abdul-Razzaq continued, “The actions of the Nigerian army against Shaykh Zakzaky ‎represent the oppression of the Islamic Resistance Axis and its scholars. Although Shaykh ‎Zakzaky serves the Muslims in Nigeria and assists the Shi’ahs of this country with patience ‎and struggle, he is the victim of the devastating and oppressive Zionist-American policies. In ‎fact, this is a ploy of the United States, the Zionist regime and their followers in the region ‎who target the Muslims of the Islamic Resistance Front by adopting oppressive policies.”‎

He added, “It is Islamic Iran, which supports them, that is targeted and imposes pressure on ‎them from all sides. They know that the Islamic Resistance Axis, despite all these pressures, ‎continues to defend its beliefs and policies. The reason that the Islamic Resistance Axis is ‎targeted is due to the fact that it defends the dignity of the Islamic Ummah but now the ‎Islamic Resistance Axis is in one trench against the arrogant powers of the world led by the ‎United States and they won’t be able to bring the Islamic Resistance to the knees.”‎

Shaykh Zakzaky, the head of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN), now 66, has been in ‎detention since December 2015 after his residence in the city of Zaria was raided by Nigerian ‎forces, during which he was beaten and lost vision in his left eye.‎

During the brutal crackdown, three of his sons lost their lives, his wife sustained serious ‎wounds, and more than 300 of his followers were killed.‎
