From years passed, most of us grew up hearing about radical bombing of processions and shrines in Pakistan and other parts of the Muslim world. As we came to realization, we found that these incidents we grew up hearing about on our analog radios were classically always Sunnite and Wahhabi radicals bombing Shia processions and shrines. Never the other way around or other mixes.
NewsRescue reported last December that Pew polls found that while the number is lower across the Muslim world, and actually zero in multi-faith-mixed and tolerant Lebanon, as many as one in five Nigerian Muslims and half that many Malaysian Muslims find Daesh favorable. Daesh previously called ISIS is the boss of Nigeria’s Boko Haram that has killed at least 100,000 Nigerians over the past 5 years.
A Canadian Blogger and Activist recently saw the disturbing poll mentioned above that said “one in every five Nigerian Muslim supports ISIS,” referenced this March in an article by John Campbell. A 2015 poll by the Pew Research Center found that about one Nigerian Muslim in five is favorably inclined toward the so-called Islamic State. The Canadian Blogger contacted me for confirmation and I told her that the poll is correct.
The Saudi-sponsored Wahhabism in Nigeria started making headway in Nigeria in the mid-70s with Saudi petro-dollars flooding Nigeria to promote the deviant, terrorism – enabled and extremely intolerant Wahhabi sect. With the prevalence of Wahhabism especially in Northern Nigeria, it was just a matter of time for the emergence of a Wahhabi – inspired murderous terrorism in the name of #Islam and that came with the Boko Haram insurgency.
A similar billions of dollars project is actively in progress in Malaysia which is having markedly lower but similar Daesh terror-support numbers with Nigeria as can be seen in the chart above. See: Saudi Royal Family Gave $681M To Malaysian PM Who Banned Shia Islam
Hadith On Following Others Over Allah(s)
Bukhari Volume 9, Book 88, Number 220:
Narrated Abu Maryam Abdullah bin Ziyad Al-Aasadi:
When Talha, AzZubair and ‘Aisha moved to Basra, ‘Ali sent ‘Ammar bin Yasir and Hasan bin ‘Ali who came to us at Kufa and ascended the pulpit. Al-Hasan bin ‘Ali was at the top of the pulpit and ‘Ammar was below Al-Hasan. We all gathered before him. I heard ‘Ammar saying, “‘Aisha has moved to Al-Busra. By Allah! She is the wife of your Prophet in this world and in the Hereafter. But Allah has put you to test whether you obey Him (Allah) or her (‘Aisha).”
The present Nigerian government is today infiltrated and dominated by these Wahhabi elements who have more allegiance to the Saudi Wahhabi regime than to the Nigerian nation. The Nigerian President Buhari appointed die-hard Wahhabi/Salafis to key positions in his government especially in the military and security sections and the brutal Zaria Massacre of defenseless and unarmed Shia Muslims in Zaria that killed 1000+ Nigerians was a product of this Wahhabi ascendancy in Nigeria. And the dragging of Nigeria into the anti-Shia Saudi-led coalition by Nigerian President Buhari with no due consultations with relevant stakeholders is another product of the Wahhabi ascendancy in Nigeria.
After the brutal and inhuman Zaria massacre the Nigerian government burnt and buried the dead bodies of their victims in mass graves to bury the evidences. This is what ISIS and AlQaeda are doing in Syria and Iraq, and that was the same thing that the Saudi – controlled Nigerian Army did after the Zaria massacre. The Nigerian President Buhari then sent his Army Chief to lie to the world that “only 7 Shia Muslims” were killed in the Zaria massacre. This is despite the fact that one mother lost her 7 loved ones in the Zaria massacre. The Nigerian leaders behave like common thugs of ISIS and AlQaeda by burying the Nigerian women, #children and the aged that they killed in the Zaria massacre in mass graves to bury the evidences.
Then came the smear campaigns of calumny and demonization of the peaceful Islamic Movement of Nigeria ( IMN ) under the leadership of His Eminence Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. After brutally killing 1000+ of its members whereby the Nigerian Army was chanting derogatory anti-Shia slogans, the Nigerian government then want to demonize IMN as a “terrorist organization” to partly justify the brutal slaughter of defenseless Nigerians in Zaria and the unjust incarceration of hundreds of IMN members that included its leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and his wife.
The first Nigerian personality that unmasked the BokoHaram insurgency in the West African sub-region was Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. He said the BokoHaram insurgency is a foreign sponsored agenda by the arrogant and greedy bloodsucking imperialists to re-colonize Africa. He said that both Nigerian Christians and Muslims must unite to defeat this murderous terrorism that has killed 30,000+ innocent Nigerians and displaced more than 2 million from their homes.
To practically illustrate what Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky and IMN symbolized against murderous terrorism, I will present this practical example for more clarification:
When three Muslims are walking past a Church packed-full with Christian worshippers and just of a sudden they saw a suicide bomber approaching the Church to kill the innocent. Some #Muslims will run away from the scene so as not to be affected by the impending tragedy, the Wahhabis will encourage the suicide bomber to go and kill Christian “Kafirs” and afterwards celebrate the brutal slaughter of “Kafirs”. But for Shia Muslims what is most important is to stop the suicide bomber at all cost not to reach that Church. They must give preference to the lives of those innocent worshippers that included women, children and the aged and prevent that suicide bomber from reaching that Church to kill the innocent.
Then how can people with the above doctrine which is the true Islamic teachings of defending and protecting lives of the innocent be tagged as “terrorists”? Sheikh Zakzaky has on countless occasions in his lectures said that “we save lives and not destroy them”.
Finally, what happened in the Zaria massacre was undoubtedly a war crime and those present Nigerian oppressors who think that they can bury this war crime by burying the victims are grossly naive. One day justice will be served to those who brutally slaughtered 1000+ defenseless & unarmed Nigerians in less than 48 hours and the divine vengeance from God is not far off.
