The chairman of the Islamic Human Rights Commission of London added: “The Islamic movement in Nigeria has at least 19 million supporters who have been recruited by Sheikh Zakzaki for about 30 years.”


He continued: “Sheikh Zakzaki is one of the most charismatic personalities in the world who has been able to invite large groups of people in the shortest possible time to the pure Mohammadi Islam. His supporters in Nigeria participated the Arabeen event in despite the bloodsheds from this year and last year.”


Shajarah said: “now it has been thousands of days since the supporters of Sheikh Zakzaki are threatened with bullets but they have not abandoned their religion and they never feared the rain of bullets posed upon them. Sheikh Zakzaki was always against any armed struggle; he has repeatedly stated that our greatest weapon is our faith and belief, because it is a righteous belief.”


The head of the Islamic Human Rights Commission of London continued with a memory from Sheikh Zakzaki and said: "I remember that Sheikh traveled to London about 10 years ago, whose supporters called for the Sheikh to speak. Sheikh addressed the scholars and the attendees and said: “God preaches his path to people by his messengers such as Jesus and Prophet Muhammad. At the time of Imam Hussein (AS), the Islamic religion was deviated and had turned into a dangerous path, Imam Hussein did not choose to fight it by cultural and academic ways but he chose to fight it with his blood and sacrifice, how many of you are ready to continue Imam Hussain’s path?”


He concluded: “Sheikh Zakzaki sacrificed himself and his children for the path of divine and right, his sister was burned to death but he did not surrender. Today's gathering is dedicated to those Nigerian Muslims who stood for Sheikh Zakzaki, your support here in Iran pacifies their suffering in their resistance.”


According to the report, students were holding tablets that have written Arabic and English slogans, and they demanded international societies to take quick actions for the rights of Nigerian Muslims.
