Sheikh Zakzaky’s unparalleled interfaith relationship is one of the reasons he is being persecuted and paradoxically termed a “terrorist” by the government that feels uncomfortable with his unifying activities and are thus terrorizing him and his Movement. As far back as the 90’s, he has demonstrated clearly his unequalled tolerant nature, from hosting Christian leaders and youths, to receiving Papal delegation from the Vatican, to providing refuge to Christians and other minority tribes in his residence during political and religious crises, to championing the ideals of the Christian-Muslim alternative to…
