Aisha Yesufu, coordinator of the Bring Back Our Girls (BBOG) campaign, knocked out the Kano State Hisbah Board for her letter written to a radio station in the state of 96.9 Cool FM, ordering that it no longer use the term ‘Black Friday’, Igbere TV reports.
Many on social media have made fun of the blackboard for the buggy letter that has been shared on social media.
In her reaction, Ms. Yesufu argued that Black Friday is related to giving because goods are sold at reduced prices, adding that Islam preaches giving.
What kind of misfortune is this? The Muslims being killed don’t matter, is Friday what matters? We are not black so what’s wrong with having a black friday?
“A glorious BLACK FRIDAY where you get products at a reduced price. Isn’t that giving? Isn’t it part of Islam to give away? he asked on Friday.
Black Friday is an informal name for the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States, which is celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. The term is used throughout the world to refer to a promotional sales day in which products are sold at discounted prices.
