In the midst of the current security challenges the world and now our country Nigeria is faced with, it is imperative that our battle with terror be directed to the ideals behind these incessant killings, as military actions alone CAN’T stop it. The defeat of Boko Haram will likely give birth to the rise of another terror group.
Religious fundamentalists who claim to be muslims, think Allah wants them to kill people who don’t believe in Allah, hence, they make it their duties to brainwash vulnerable muslims into these deadly activities, thinking they are fighting Allah’s cause. I’l refer you to Quran passages below
“Strike terror (into the hearts of) the enemies of God and your enemies.”
Fight (kill) them (non-Muslims), and God will punish, (torment) them by your hands, cover them with shame.” Surah 9:14
“I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them. It is not ye who slew them; it was God.”
But does God who created heaven and earth need anyone to destroy it? Or fight for him? No! Only proper Education can save us here, and passing the right message is important. There was a time that the killings of twins was rampant, but we later abandoned the belief because we realized our foolishness. This sect must realize their foolishness. We should make them realise that God doesn’t need them to fight any battles in his name.
These people (who are not muslims as they claim) should be reminded that the devil came to kill, steal and destroy, and that is exactly the same they are doing. Their god – the devil, is weak, cruel and a blood sucker, and our God (Allah, Jesus) wouldn’t destroy what he has fearfully and wonderfully made.
