Hisbah Police has come under attack for inviting the parents of newly crowned Miss Nigeria, Shatu Garko over her participation in the beauty pageant.
According to Hisbah, showcasing your beauty is forbidden in Islam.
Kano State Hisbah commander, Haruna Ibn Sina, speaking with BBC Hausa, said the Miss Nigeria contest is “illegal and contrary” to Islamic beliefs.
He quoted sections of the Quran which says a woman’s beauty should only be seen by her husband, parents, and children.
The parents may risk arrest as talk about the beauty pageant is termed ‘Haram.
Aisha, reacting, slammed Hisbah for concentrating on meager matters than seeking for solutions for the rising insecurity in the Northern part of Nigeria.
