Nigerian Islamic group to launch satellite TV channel

The Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’a Wa Iqamatis Sunnah, a religious organisation, is to launch a satellite TV channel, called Sunnah TV.

The Daily Times Nigeria reports that the organisation's national chairman, Shiekh Bala Lau, said test transmission of the channel had been carried out.

He said the content of its programmes was being worked out, but pointed out that the recitation of the Holy Quran and Hadith would feature prominently, adding that the channel would concentrate on religious instructions and other productive activities that would benefit Muslims and other Nigerians, especially the youth.

Lau explained that Sunnah TV was aimed at helping young Muslims to excel in the recitation of the Holy Book and commit themselves to the teachings of Islam.
