Are 10 million minority Muslims facing genocide In Nigeria?

While there is no regret for the
nation getting rid of the dangerous
Jonathan government, Nigeria must
be apprehensive in the face of the
turn or perhaps return of this
"change." Two days ago, President Buhari
presented the 2016 budget to the
National Assembly, despite Nigeria
experiencing a highest level national
security tragedy the preceding days.
According to numbers from Human Rights Watch [Nigeria: Army Attack on Shia Unjustified-HRW], at least 300 murdered Muslims were
criminally buried by the Nigerian
Army to cover-up evidence of the
extent of the Zaria "unjustified"
massacre. ABU hospital received
200 bodies in the first day after (I haven't checked update) and 13
more were handed over to families
by the Kaduna police. Adding the
numbers, at least 513 were killed
and with numbers of bodies left on
the streets, the claim of 1000-2000 dead is realistic. The nation's
presidency declining to address this
tragedy and seeing it as important
to present a budget at such time is
scary and forecasts horror. This
cannot happen anywhere else in the world. Once again, Nigeria is setting
records. Whether this loss of lives was a
result of civilian or military terror,
based on the numbers affected, it
deserves a position as top national
priority. It is not. What has happened and continues
to happen to these minority
Muslims over the past decades,
through military and civilian rules
alike has the full hallmarks of State-
orchestrated religious persecution. Also Read: Protesters ransack Muslim prayer hall on Corsica Egypt's Morsi allowed
the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt. He called on Egyptian youth to go join the Syrian Jihadists. Morsi thought that
because he had been elected into
power with his zealous identity well
known, that it indicated a blank
ticket to perpetrate extremist
Salafist and Wahhabi, Takfiri Sunni aggression on his people and others.
He was wrong. The people were not
ready for that, or at least, many
enough weren't and nor was the
army. While Buhari's past is quite known,
including his persecution of a
 Nigerian Sage, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti,
Nigerians largely and unregretably
voted for the "change" government
because the nation badly needed a break from corruption and Buhari
with his anti-corruption record was
the only viable opposition. Impunity However since assuming power, the
Buhari government and the APC
party have not only returned and
attempted to return several
politicians with far from stellate
records to the helm of power, including the likes of late late Audu
Abubakar to Kogi, Bayelsa's many
PDP and past indicted politicians,
Lagos' half-a million dollar borehole
Fashola to the super Ministry and
the like; but very importantly, the new government has put on the garb
of total impunity as it fumbles in
national security cases. While in the
cases of Dasuki and Nnamdi Kanu,
where the government fumbled in
pressing the right charges at the right time, I decline to bother or
protest about the infractions, for the
simple reasons that one error by the
government should not lead to a
worse one where they release
publicly known open terrorists; the danger of such totalitarian
governance soon hits us all. Sheikh
Zakzaky and many of his faithfuls is
again being held against the law,
denied access to family and legal
counsel. Incompetence leading to the use
of impunity: It was shocking that the State security department did
not have the right charges for Kanu
on time when his acts of treason
and terror were all in the open as I
had collated and written of since
before he was even arrested. [Before The First Eastern Bomb: Declare Radio Boafra A Terrorist
Organisation- Brimah, September 5, 2015] Indeed as at March this year,
Nnamdi Kanu, real name,
Nwannekaenyi Kenny Okwu-Kanu,
had been declared wanted by the
Imo state government for
purchasing arms for terror. [See: General Overseers Of Guns - Sunnewsonline] But perhaps we must accept that the Buhari
administration did not expect to get
into power and unlike us, were not
all over the news and intelligence
sources constantly, but used to play
draft and things, so we must give them time to get their act together.
The issue however is the abuse of
power and resort to impunity with its
many risks. Zaria Massacre Late Muhammed Bukhari was an ardent supporter of Muhammadu
Buhari. He was part of the election
observer team in Kogi state during
the concluded general elections.
Bukhari was murdered in cold blood
while holed up in the Husainiyyah building. He and many others did not
block any streets that blood
crimson-river December day. They
did not carry any deadly weapons
and they did not stone anyone. They
simply stayed in the Husainiyyah Islamic complex and watched and
praised God as they were
bombarded "like it was Sambisa," as
Bukhari said before he was killed. Army Is Judge, Jury And
Executioner There was  no procession that
fateful day of blood rivers in Zaria.
From 3pm till the morning of the
13th, the Nigerian army pounded
locations where the minority
Muslims were residing and killed everyone in sight. The army had
behaved as judge and jury. The
Kaduna government has since
continued demolishing all properties
owned by the movement including
Zakzaky's family home. The army continued massacres at Muslim
cemeteries, according to the Human
Rights Watch. [See: Nigerian Army Attack On Shia, Unjustified- HRW] While one may argue that no
civilian, and please do not be
retarded to use the word, "bloody,"
may block a road with sticks and
stones, even if they are mad at an
unaddressed massacre of their own by the same army a year back
who again earlier in the
day, positioned officers with loads of
ammunition around their center as
though ready for a new attack; it is
the duty of the police (mobile) to clear such blockade and not the
military, be it new recruit being
blocked or Chief of Staff. Hence the
extreme "they tried to kill me,"
defense. I have addressed this
explicitly [Zaria Massacre: Why CoAS Lt. General T. Y. Buratai
Needs To Resign-Brimah] and so has Attorney Femi Falana. [Zaria Massacre: Falana wants Army
Chief, Buratai, others prosecuted-
Falana] Also Read: Christian college professor wearing headscarf
put on leave Thus the continued extra-judicial
assault on the Islamic Movement,
tolerated by the Buhari government
reeks of one thing, sadly: religious
persecution. One can predict a heap of trumped-
up charges that will be thrown on
the Islamic Movement, of treason,
trying to over throw Nigeria and
other ridiculous stuff, all in the hope,
not of saving the heads of the governors and military leadership
culpable in the ongoing genocide, but
sadly, in the hope of securing public
and international complacency to
complete the wipe-out of this Muslim
minority. Nigeria's Sunni-Takfiri Zealots In their divide-and-rule conquerors
protocol, the colonialist, just like
they sought and invested in cultural
differences in Africa, figured that to
make the Middle East helplessly
dependent on them and to ensure permanent chaos, differences must
be exploited. So-called Sunni and
Shia had been living side by side
mostly in peace and love for
decades. Most just called each-
other fellow Muslims and did not even regard the arbitrary and
erroneous (Haram) terms, "Sunni,
Shia." The colonialist exploited the
theological differences and created
divides based on this. [See: Sunni- Shiite Conflict Reflects Modern
Power Struggle, Not Theological
Schism] They intentionally handed over the split-up Arab world which
was till before 1914 largely under
the Ottoman "caliphate" to minority
dictators who where thereby
insecure and  guaranteed to depend
on them to hold power. The French upgraded the minority Alawaites in
the army and socially to create their
pathway to power over Sunni
majority Syria. The British who got
Transjordan (Jordan, Palestine and
Israel), Iraq and Hijaz-ul-Arabia, gave one family, three puppet sons
of Sheriff Hussein, one got Arabia,
another-Jordan, and Faisal was
given Iraq. [Watch: 1914: The Shaping of the Modern Muslim
World - Part 1 ~ Dr. Yasir
Qadhi] Later the Britts raised the Saud family who overthrew the
Hussein family and renamed Saudi
Arabia after their name. This
became the capital of extremist
Wahhabi and Takfiri ideology and
finance. Read about the McMahon– Hussein correspondence and Sykes
Picot agreement and Treaty of
Versailles. The colonialists created and
empowered the Wahhabi Saudi
leadership to spread the extremist
Salafi/Sunni-Takfiri extremist
ideology. What is Takfiri: a Takfiri is
a "Sunni" Muslim who feels he is better than anyone else and denies
freedom of individual theology
and worship to others, believing he
has the right to kill anyone who is
different from him. Takfiri declare
"Shia" worthy of death. They declare Christians, Yazidis, Copts and the
like, worthy of death. In fact they kill
Muslims who they view as different
with even more passion than they
pursue Christians and others and by
no accident, and thankfully for this group, they are hardly found
pursuing Jews and are often
accused of cooperating with Israel
to together eliminate their common
enemies, usually other Muslim
groups. [See: The Islamic State (ISIS) and Israel are Allies] Pew Poll: Nigeria Has Highest
Number Of Muslims Who
Support ISIS Unfortunately, Nigeria is one of the
worst Muslim nations in the world
according to data. Boko Haram
being able to establish in Nigeria is
no accident. The people were largely
silent about Boko Haram, the Sultan said nothing as he does again now
as Muslims are being massacred
buy the army. Some like PDP's
Bamanga Tukur, praised recently by
Buhari even positively appraised
Boko Haram. [Boko Haram is fighting for justice –Tukur — The
Punch] Nigeria has the most religiously
intolerant people. We cannot deny or
claim to ignore our history of
intolerance by the larger Sunni
north; all the times the youth ran the
streets and burned down Churches, Igbo homes and the like for the
flimsiest reasons: beauty pageant,
Buhari loss, what have you. The
first point of attack is Churches as a
result of this Takfiri mentality that
abounds among Muslims in Nigeria's north. While Nigeria was high but not the
highest of those who had no
comment on ISIS/Daesh, of all
Muslim nations polled in the recent
Pew poll, Nigeria had the highest
favorability of the terror group. 14% of Nigerians viewed Daesh
favorably. This is tragic. Compared,
a well mixed nation like Lebanon
with 50% of its 54% Muslims "Shia"
and "50%" "Sunni, and a large
Christian population (40%) had a 100% hate for Daesh. [Pew Poll: Nigeria Has Highest ‘favorable’
Attitude Toward Isis Of World
Countries] One in Five Nigerian Muslim
Likes Daesh The worst figure was the number of
Nigerian Muslims who liked ISIS:
20%! That is 1 in every 5 Nigerian
Muslims according to the poll agree
with ISIS ideology of killing and
persecuting, denying freedom of worship with death and terrorizing
civilians globally with bombs
including by suicidal means.
Malaysia came a distant second
with about 1 in 10 of its Muslims
finding Daesh favorable. The numbers explain a lot. This Sunni-Takfiri attitude is quickly
picked in comments on media in
relation to the globally condemned
(except Takfiri-capital, Saudi Arabia)
massacre of the Islamic Movement.
And it is this extremist mentality that sadly it appears propelled the
Nigerian army to attempt/initiate a
genocide of the 10 million minority
Muslims in Nigeria (according to Pew Poll, "Shia" are 12% of Nigeria's
60 million Muslims= 7.2 million) and that continues to propel the Kaduna
government to demolish their
properties without court order
(nothing new here, thoug) and
propels the Buhari Presidency not to
comment on this national tragedy. Sunni Vs Shia I see these two erroneous groups as
two sides of a coin. The Quran
condemns such names. While none
of these two names existed in the
time of the Muslim prophet, the
innovation of using these names gives a way to describe two similar
peoples. I'll categorize them easily
and enable you pick which group is
more prone to peace and which,
violence. While the so-called Shia practice
self-flagellation, whipping
themselves to teach each other
extreme patience and non violence
[Why self-flagellation matters for Shias-Nadeem Kazmi], the other, so-called "Sunni" practice "others-
flagellation," if such word exists.
The Sunni are the ones more
common to find beating and killing
others because the Sunni feel they
are better than everyone else. You will more easily find a rabbit running
in day light than find a "Shia"
terrorist. Majorities who have been
subjugated and oppressed in Iraq by
Saddam and Bahrain, they never
resort to terror. The same cannot be said of Sunni-Takfiris. The Northern
governors saying, "we do not want
to create another Boko Haram," is
frank lies. They know "Shia" are
hardly every historically terrorists.
They do not do Sunni-Takfiri murder of civilians to prove a point. If they
did, when they were oppressed by
Abacha or when Jonathan killed
three of their leaders' sons and 31
other members, they would have
strapped on. It is because they are known for their peaceful nature that
the Nigerian government continues
to kill them and demolish their
structures extra-judicially. You will typically hear a Sunni-
Takfiri say, "the Shia deserve to be
killed" because they insult the
"Sahaba (companions of the
Prophet). This is deadly ignorance.
For one thing, Islam does not say kill anyone who has a varying belief
or insults your revered persons. And
for a second thing, the so-called
"Shia" highest authority in 2010 gave
a FATWA banning such insult of the
Prophet of Islam's companions or wives. [Imam Khamenei Fatwa: Insulting Symbols Of Sunni Brothers
Forbidden] So ignorance and idiocy fuels their deadly tendencies and
this continued narrative used by
Takfiri-Sunni to fuel their deadly
intolerance. But Nigeria's military brass, northern
Elite and some spiritual leaders feed
the people these outdated and
erroneous extremist ideas to further
their Takfiri deadly campaigns of
hate and intolerance. You do  not have to die for your
belief or disbelief. You do not have to die for your
Church or Mosque blocking traffic.
Let the police control that. You do not have to die for blocking
the Chief of Army Staff. Again, let
the mobile police deal with that. But to everyone else, remember one
day you too will die. #IAmZakzaky
