‘Wahhabi’ Cleric Caught Promoting Intolerance And Hate In Nigeria North

How Wahhabi clerics in Nigeria promote hate:

On 18/12/2015 Sheikh Sani Yahaya Jingir who is the leader of the Jos-faction of Wahhabism in Nigeria told his congregation that: “Shia, Igbo Christians & Sunni Sufis (Tijjaniyya) are the Boko Haram in Nigeria!“.

Sheikh Jingre said these words in his sermon of Friday prayers in his Yan Taya Mosque, Jos, Plateau state. On this stated date Sheikh Jingre went on drunken tirade against Shia Muslims, Sunni Sufis and Christians where he accused them to be behind the Boko Haram insurgency.

This is an example of how Wahhabi clerics in Nigeria promote murderous terrorism with hate speech where they brainwashed their gullible followers by using lies and deception to make them hate all those who do not subscribe to their deviation.

This Wahhabi cleric did not tell his congregation that the murderous Boko Haram have its root from Wahhabism and the name of the Mosque where Muhammad Yusuf, the founder of Boko Haram, preached was called “Ibn Tayymiya Mosque”. And he also failed to tell his gullible congregation that all the murderous terrorists groups in the world that are killing innocent people in the name of Islam are inspired by Wahhabism.

boko shiaThe spate of mob killings, beheadings and stabbings in Kano, Niger, Kaduna etc that has engulfed Northern Nigeria in recent weeks are directly connected to these hate sermons and speeches by these Wahhabi clerics. The most gruesome of this attacks was when Wahhabi youths beheaded a 70-year old Christian woman in Kano and paraded her head around the city as a trophy of victory.

Wahhabism is steeped in intolerance, bigotry, hate-mongering and terrorism and its violent manifestations is what the world sees as ISIS, AlQaeda, Boko Haram etc. Killings, beheadings, massacres and slaughter of the innocent are all celebrated by these bloodthirsty Wahhabis as “Jihad”.

It is important to note that the root of all murderous terrorism starts with hate and it is these Wahhabi clerics that brainwashed their gullible followers with hate. They make them hate those they declared as “Kafirs (infidels)” or if they are Muslims they excommunicate them from Islam and declared that their blood is “legal” to be shed.

After the Paris attacks a number of European countries that included France and Germany are closing extremist Wahhabi Mosques as they have realize that they are the incubators of murderous terrorism. A number of Muslim countries that included Egypt and Tunisia had also taken such steps of closing down such extremist Wahhabi Mosques and centers. They went further by banning Wahhabi book that inspired murderous terrorism in the name of Islam.

Sadly in Nigeria the reverse is the case as the government of Nigerian President Buhari have been hijacked and taken over by Wahhabis and to underlined that the Nigerian army massacred 1000+ defenseless and unarmed Shia Muslims in Zaria last December and dumped the dead bodies in mass Graves. The Nigerian army also massacred 100+ peaceful pro-#Biafra agitators in Southeast Nigeria and dumped their bodies in mass grave. From the declaration of Sheikh Yahaya Jingre above the Sunni Sufis are next in line of massacre.

It is important to note that these murderous Wahhabi thugs slaughter dozens of Shia Muslims alongside the Nigerian army in the Zaria massacre. They also act as spies and informants to the Nigerian army during the entire duration of the massacre.

It is high time that Nigerians wake up to the threat of hate-mongering of these bloodthirsty Wahhabi clerics who are the largest and biggest manufacturers of murderous terrorists in the world. If today they beheaded a 70-year old woman or mobbed beat an Igbo Christian to death then tomorrow they will behead 100s or even 1000s.
