Muzaffarnagar, India: There has been a massacre of Muslims
in India which started when Hindus distributed a fake video
against Muslims. From September 7 to September 20, the
violence against Muslim minority has been spreading across
Uttar Pradesh. There has been some Muslims resistance but
very little because Muslim leaders want peace. In the first
outburst of Hindu attacks 47 Muslims ere killed, their
houses were looted and mosques ransacked. More unarmed
Muslims have been killed since then, some hacked to pieces
in front of their families. The Indian army has been called
in to restore order but the damage had already been done.
Cases of rape of Muslim women are coming in.
The Indian Prime Minister spoke about communal harmony on
September 20 but offered no sympathy to the Muslims.
Elsewhere in India, the rape of A Muslim girl in Hyderabad
indicates the condition of women in general and Muslim girls
in particular. The rapist, a Hindu named Satya Parkash
Bihari was arrested but released after a few days owing to
pressure on police by a Telugu leader. The girl was
subjected to serial rape starting on April 3, 2012. She
disappeared for 17 months after the original rape and was
handed over to group after group to be raped. After recovery
the rapist was identified and arrested.
[The US media have completely censored the massacre in
Muzaffarnagar and the tragedy in Hyderabad.]

A Virus Which has no Cure Could Hit Hajj Pilgrims
Saudi Arabia has urged sick and elderly Muslims not to
perform the Hajj pilgrimage this year as the country
attempts to control a serious outbreak of the MERS
coronovirus, according to AFP.
Those who do make the pilgrimage also were warned to wear
face masks while in crowded areas to avoid the contagious
disease, which has already killed 38 people in Saudi
A statement on the Saudi Ministry of Health website
recommends the elderly, those suffering chronic illnesses,
such as heart, kidney, respiratory diseases and diabetes,
people with immunity deficiency, children and women postpone
the Umra or Hajj this year.
World Health Organization [WHO] & Lancet Magazine also
warned against MERS
MERS appeared about a year ago and, while not much is known
about it, scientists have noticed it has killed mostly
people who are already weakened by diseases. MERS still has
killed perfectly healthy people, however.
"All cases have been directly or indirectly linked to one of
four countries in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia, Jordan,
Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates), with most cases (90
cases and 44 deaths) reported from Saudi Arabia," said the
report, led by Matthew Cotton, of Britain's Wellcome Trust
Sanger Institute and Ziad Memish of the Saudi health
The study was published the medical journal the Lancet.
"Human-to-human transmission of MERS has been documented in
England, France, Tunisia, Italy, and Saudi Arabia," read the
Although scientists know where the original source came
from, it is still unclear how people became infected, or
when. Camels have been discovered to carry the virus and the
bats that originally carried MERS could have also infected
other animals, as could have the camels.
Some patients showed signs of being infected more than once
from different sources, further complicating how people can
contract the virus.
Causing concern for Saudi officials is the upcoming Hajj
from Oct. 13-18. It is a mass pilgrimage to the Saudi city
of Mecca by Muslims from all over. The Saudi government has
asked the elderly, pregnant women, children under 12 and
those with chronic illnesses not to make the trip. The U.S.
government has made similar warnings to American Muslims.
Umm Kulthum, brilliant young daughter of Ali, r.a., Married
second Caliph of Islam, Umar, r.a.
Abu Bakr, r.a., daughter, also named Umm Kulthum, refused
to marry Umar, r.a.
by Kaukab Siddique
The Internet is rife with sectarian attacks on Caliph Umar,
r.a., the Second Caliph of Islam and one of the greatest
Muslims of all times. Special sectarian emphasis is on the
claim that Umar, r.a., and Ali, r.a., were enemies.
I wrote on the Internet that Umar, r.a., and Ali, r.a., were
great friends. To cement this relationship, Ali, r.a.,
encouraged his very young daughter Umm Kulthum to marry
Umar, r.a., the great Caliph of Islam whose armies destroyed
the empires of Persia and Rome.
In response, Agha Khani and Shi'a extremist writers claimed
that this marriage never happened. So, here is the
Here are quotes from two of the earliest classical
historians of Islam. They did not meet each other. They
lived in different times and were not living under Ummayad
"THE CHILDREN OF UMAR, r.a. : Zaid and Ruqayya. The mother
of both was Umm Kulthum the daughter of Ali, r.a., the son
of Abu Talib, the son of Abdul Mutallib, bin Hashim. The
mother of Umm Kulthum was Fatima, the daughter of the
Messenger of Allah, peace be on him." [ Tabaqat al-kubra,
vol. 3, by Muhammad ibn Sa'ad, died in 230 hijri.]
"Umar, r.a., also married Umm Kulthum, the daughter of Ali
ibn Abi Talib whose mother was Fatima, the daughter of the
Prophet, pbuh. Umar gave a big marriage gift.. From her he
had two children, Zayd and Ruqayya." Tarikh Umam wa
al-Muluk, Volume two, by Abu Jafar Jarir al-Tabari, died 310
When I published this, the sectarians claimed that there was
another Umm Kulthum, the daughter of Abu Bakr, r.a., who
married Umar, r.a., not the one who was the daughter of Ali,
r.a. Here is my documentation to clear up this
Actually, there was a daughter of Abu Bakr, r.a., also named
Umm Kulthum. Umar, r.a., wanted to marry her but she refused
on the plea that Umar's life style was too strict and
Then Umar, r.a., wanted to marry, Umm Kulthum, daughter of
Ali, r.a., and she accepted.
In fact BOTH events, rejection by one Umm Kulthum and
acceptance by the other are given in the SAME chapter of
Tabari's Tarikh which I quoted earlier.
Remember Tabari is the historian who gave DETAILS of the
TRAGEDY of KERBALA to such an extent that people say he was
Shia. No, he was simply a great historian.
Here is what he writes about Umm Kulthum, the daughter of
Abu Bakr, r.a.,
"Umar, r.a., asked for the hand in marriage of Umm kulthum
daughter of Abu Bakr, r.a. The message was sent through
Ayesha, r.a.. When Ayesha, r.a.,asked Umm Kulthum bint Abi
Bakr, she replied: 'I will not marry him." Ayesha, r.a.,
said: You are refusing to marry the Ameer of the Believers.
She replied: "He lives a very harsh life style and is very
strict with women."
[Tarikh Umam wa al-Muluk volume 3. Abu Jafar Jarir Tabari.]
An episode from history shows the greatness of Umar, r.a,
and the modesty of Umm Kulthum.
According to authentic hadith narrative, during the marriage
of Umm Kulthum and Umar,r.a, the second Caliph of Islam, a
man from the eastern front in Khorasan brought a bag filled
with the precious jewels and diamonds captured from the
Persian rulers. He wanted to give it to Umar, r.a., in the
hope that Umar would reward him highly for such an expensive
gift. He went to the Caliph's home and saw him sitting on a
rough pillow. Umar, r.a., offered him a similar pillow and
then Umm Kalthum sent in the meal. It was a little olive oil
with a piece of bread and a piece of uncut salt. The man was
shocked to see the lifestyle of the most powerful ruler of
Umar, r.a., called out to his wife to come and sit with him.
She answered from behind a curtain that she could hear a
strange male voice with Umar, r.a. She said, you'll have to
buy me a special covering such as Jafar's son bought for his
wife [her sister] if you want me to come in front of men.
Umar's, r.a., answer is worth quoting word for word:
"Is it not enough honor that men should say that Umm Kulthum
is the daughter of Ali ibn Abi Talib and the wife of the
ameer of the believers Umar?" [ Tarikh al-Umam wa al-Muluk,
by Abi Jafar Jarir al-Tabari, Hijri 310, Vol. 3 Urdu
The point here is that when a woman is identified as part of
the Islamic revolution and works with its top echelons, a
little laxity in dress should not be a big ;problem. In our
times we have women wearing extremely strict hijab but going
to the White House Inaugural to support a ruler who endorses
homosexuality, or in other cases, sisters being told that
their prayers will not be accepted if a hair is showing.
[As the report continues, Umar, r.a., then scolded the man
who had brought the gift and told him to take it back to the
mujahideen on the front and distribute it carefully
otherwise, said Umar, r.a,, he would punish him severely.
Dear Muslims, we need such rulers.]

A Chat With A Radical Fighter In Syria (NPR)
- By Rima Marrouch and Kelly McEvers
Members of Jabhat al-Nusra clean their weapons, in Aleppo in
December. The Islamist rebel group has become an
increasingly powerful force in Syria's civil war. Ahmed
The Islamist rebel group Jabhat al-Nusra has been secretive,
keeping to itself and refusing to meet Western journalists.
The group has been designated a terrorist organization by
the Obama administration and was thought to be made up
mostly of foreign fighters, working alongside Syrian
But lately, members are starting to open up as more Syrians
join the group and they make more gains on the ground in the
fight against the Syrian government.
In the northwest Syrian town of Kafr Nabel we met a
21-year-old fighter from the group. He said he came from
Libya six months ago and goes by the name Brother Huthaifa.
He says he is a "sheikh," or leader.
He agreed to meet on the condition that he could "invite us
to Islam," though he refused to have his photo taken.
Here are highlights of the conversation:
On labeling the group
Brother Huthaifa: I object to anyone calling us
NPR: So what word would you use?
BH: Mujahedeen (fighter for God).
NPR: What is your vision for Syria?
BH: We Muslims have a certainty, there is talk of the
prophet who preached that the best place on earth is the
Levant. He also said that God chooses whom he wishes to be
his best followers to be from here. I hope God chooses me
and this is why I came to here, too.
NPR: What did you do before you came to Syria?
BH: I was a teacher of Quran and a sharia [Islamic law]
student, fourth year in Benghazi, Libya. [During the
uprising against Moammar Gadhafi], I was fighting in
NPR: What is the goal of Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria?
BH: There are orders from the general command of the group
that it is not allowed to conduct suicide operations inside
On the group's attitude toward women
NPR: Will women be required to wear hijab [if the current
regime is ousted]?
BH: Let me explain it this way. If I gave someone two
lollipops ... one is covered and the other is not. Where
will the germs and the bacteria go? To the uncovered one.
And the same with the woman; if she is uncovered, the rotten
one, who will the men chase? While if the woman is covered,
even the most beautiful one, they will not chase her.
NPR: That brings us to the wider question of an Islamic
state, and what does that mean for the non-Muslims?
BH: Preserving the Muslim society, that is the general rule.
Prevention is the best treatment. What makes people commit
sin is viewing porn films, listening to songs that provoke
NPR: You are also in a way not respecting the minds of men.
You immediately think that they will chase a woman who is
BH: Prevention is the best treatment. Men mostly look at
face and the body. Then he will be following women and Satan
will be whispering into his ears.
NPR: So why don't you put on a veil, too? There are women
who chase men?
BH: Are you really asking to get an answer or to argue?
NPR: To get an answer.
BH: Islam is a great religion. There is a verse that says:
"Tell the believers to lower their gaze and guard their
modesty. That is better for them, as God is aware of what
they are doing. And tell the woman [believers] to lower
their gaze and guard their modesty."
On why the group is becoming more public
BH: There are no guidelines regarding this matter. Because
people want to come to Jabhat al-Nusra on their own. If you
want to know about us, you can follow us on Twitter.
NPR: But today you were a bit upset that the media didn't
publicize your demonstration.
BH: The problem is that the media has lost its credibility.
The media's role is to convey what is happening on the
ground without exaggeration. And it isn't the case. It's
opposite. Especially when Jabhat al-Nusra was classified as
a terrorist organization. It did not commit any terrorist
acts outside Syria, and it doesn't have any links to
al-Qaida, but it was classified as a terrorist organization.
Why? Because it resisted [Syrian president] Bashar al
NPR: In Syria, people have different beliefs than you. So
the question is, how can you come from a different country
and tell Syrians how to live their lives as Muslims?
BH: In our religion, the believers are brothers and sisters.
... There is no such thing as Libyan, Syrian, Tunisian. We
are all Muslims.
On Islamic law
BH: We believe in the prophecy of implementing an Islamic
NPR: So once there is an Islamic state, there will be the
cutting off the hands of thieves and the death penalty [for
BH: I decline to answer.
NPR: The people of Syria deserve an answer.
BH: Al-Hudud [the Islamic punishments for serious crimes]
cannot be implemented except in a Muslim country with power
and force. With cutting off hands, we would have to
implement the several conditions necessary for an Islamic
state before we could do that.
NPR: We saw how your organization helped with bread
distribution in Aleppo. Is it an important phase for you
right now to earn the trust of the people?
BH: Yes, Sheikh Abu Mohammad al-Joulani, who is the emir of
Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria, wrote a letter titled, "People of
Sham we sacrifice our souls for you." In it he said that
Jabhat al-Nusa is not a political organization but a group
that cares in the matters of all Muslims

tags: aspartame, diabetes, dizziness, fibromyalgia,
headaches, lupus, migraines, ms, muscle spasms, nutra-sweet,
In October of 2001, my sister started getting very sick She
had stomach spasms and she was having a hard time getting
around. Walking was a major chore. It took everything she
had just to get out of bed; she was in so much pain.By March
2002, she had undergone several tissue and muscle biopsies
and was on 24 various prescription medications. The doctors
could not determine what was wrong with her. She was in so
much pain, and so sick she just knew she was dying. She put
her house, bank accounts, life insurance, etc., in her
oldest daughter's name, and made sure that her younger
children were to be taken care of. She also wanted her last
hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a
wheelchair) for March 22nd. On March 19, I called her to ask
how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't
find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS. I
recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I
asked my sister if she drank diet soda? She told me that she
did. As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one
open that moment. I told her not to open it, and to stop
drinking the diet soda! I e-mailed her an article my friend,
a lawyer, had sent.
My sister called me within 32 hours after our phone
conversation and told me she had stopped drinking the diet
soda AND she could walk! The muscle spasms went away. She
said she didn't feel 100% but, she sure felt a lot better.
She told me she was going to her doctor with this article
and would call me when she got home. Well, she called me,
and said her doctor was amazed! He is going to call all of
his MS patients to find out if they consumed artificial
sweeteners of any kind. In a nutshell, she was being
poisoned by the Aspartame in the diet soda.. and literally
dying a slow and miserable death When she got to Florida
March 22, all she had to take was one pill, and that was a
pill for the Aspartame poisoning! She is well on her way to
a complete recovery. And she is walking! No wheelchair! This
article saved her life. If it says 'SUGAR FREE' on the
label; DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT IT!
I have spent several days lecturing at the WORLD
ENVIRONMENTAL CONFERENCE on 'ASPARTAME,' marketed as 'Nutra
Sweet,' 'Equal,' and 'Spoonful. 'In the keynote address by
the EPA, it was announced that in the United States in 2001
there is an epidemic of multiple sclerosis and systemic
lupus. It was difficult to determine exactly what toxin was
causing this to be rampant. I stood up and said that I was
there to lecture on exactly that subject. I will explain why
Aspartame is so dangerous: When the temperature of this
sweetener exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in
ASPARTAME converts to formaldehyde and then to formic acid,
which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. Formic acid is the
poison found in the sting of fire ants. The methanol
toxicity mimics, among other conditions, multiple sclerosis
and systemic lupus. Many people were being diagnosed in
error. Although multiple sclerosis is not a death sentence,
Methanol toxicity is! Systemic lupus has become almost as
rampant as multiple sclerosis, especially with Diet Coke and
Diet Pepsi drinkers. The victim usually does not know that
the Aspartame is the culprit. He or she continues it's use;
irritating the lupus to such a degree that it may become a
life-threatening condition. We have seen patients with
systemic lupus become asymptotic, once taken off diet sodas.
In cases of those diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, most of
the symptoms disappear. We've seen many cases where vision
loss returned and hearing loss improved markedly. This also
applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia. During a
lecture, I said, 'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet,
Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia
symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs,
Cramps, Vertigo, Dizziness, Headaches, Tinnitus, Joint pain,
Unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech,
blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME
poisoning!' People were jumping up during the lecture
saying, 'I have some of these symptoms. Is it reversible?'
Yes! Yes! Yes! STOP drinking diet sodas and be alert for
Aspartame on food labels! Many products are fortified with
it! This is a serious problem. Dr. Espart (one of my
speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be
symptomatic for MS and during his recent visit to a hospice;
a nurse stated that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet
Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond
coincidence! Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is a
chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME
containing product that actually makes you crave
carbohydrates. It is far more likely to make you GAIN
weight! These products also contain formaldehyde, which
stores in the fat cells, particularly in the hips and
thighs. Formaldehyde is an absolute toxin and is used
primarily to preserve 'tissue specimens.' Many products we
use every day contain this chemical but we SHOULD NOT store
it IN our body! Dr. H. J. Roberts stated in his lectures
that once free of the 'diet products' and with no
significant increase in exercise; his patients lost an
average of 19 pounds over a trial period. Aspartame is
especially dangerous for diabetics. We found that some
physicians, who believed that they had a patient with
retinopathy, in fact, had symptoms caused by Aspartame.
The Aspartame drives the blood sugar out of control. Thus
diabetics may suffer acute memory loss due to the fact that
aspartic acid and phenylalanine are NEUROTOXIC when taken
without the other amino acids necessary for a good balance.
Treating diabetes is all about BALANCE.. Especially with
diabetics, the Aspartame passes the blood/brain barrier and
it then deteriorates the neurons of the brain; causing
various levels of brain damage, Seizures, Depression, Manic
depression, Panic attacks, Uncontrollable anger and rage.
Consumption of Aspartame causes these same symptoms in
non-diabetics as well. Documentation and observation also
reveal that thousands of children diagnosed with ADD and
ADHD have had complete turnarounds in their behavior when
these chemicals have been removed from their diet. So called
'behavior modification prescription drugs' (Ritalin and
others) are no longer needed. Truth be told, they were never
NEEDED in the first place! Most of these children were being
'poisoned' on a daily basis with the very foods that were
'better for them than sugar. 'It is also suspected that the
Aspartame in thousands of pallets of diet Coke and diet
Pepsi consumed by men and women fighting in the Gulf War,
may be partially to blame for the well-known Gulf War
Syndrome. Dr. Roberts warns that it can cause birth defects,
i.e. mental retardation, if taken at the time of conception
and during early pregnancy. Children are especially at risk
for neurological disorders and should NEVER be given
artificial sweeteners. There are many different case
histories to relate of children suffering grand mal seizures
and other neurological disturbances talking about a plague
of neurological diseases directly caused by the use of this
deadly poison.' Herein lies the problem: There were
Congressional Hearings when Aspartame was included in 100
different products and strong objection was made concerning
its use. Since this initial hearing, there have been two
subsequent hearings, and still nothing has been done. The
drug and chemical lobbies have very deep pockets. Sadly,
MONSANTO'S patent on Aspartame has EXPIRED! There are now
over 5,000 products on the market that contain this deadly
chemical and there will be thousands more introduced.
Everybody wants a 'piece of the Aspartame pie. 'I assure you
that MONSANTO, the creator of Aspartame, knows how deadly it
is. And isn't it ironic that MONSANTO funds, among others,
the American Diabetes Association, the American Dietetic
Association and the Conference of the American College of
Physicians? This has been recently exposed in the New York
Times. These [organizations] cannot criticize any additives
or convey their link to MONSANTO because they take money
from the food industry and are required to endorse their
products. Senator Howard Metzenbaum wrote and presented a
bill that would require label warnings on products
containing Aspartame, especially regarding pregnant women,
children and infants. The bill would also institute
independent studies on the known dangers and the problems
existing in the general population regarding seizures,
changes in brain chemistry, neurological changes and
behavioural symptoms. The bill was killed. It is known that
the powerful drug and chemical lobbies are responsible for
this, letting loose the hounds of disease and death on an
unsuspecting and uninformed public. Well, you're informed
I have been studying health and nutrition for 35 years. What
I've learned in the past 3 years has been by far...the most
valuable. My husband was diagnosed with liver disease 3
years ago and that sent me on a very aggressive search for
help. I came across an article about Dr. Otto Warburg that
said...he won the Nobel Prize in 1931 for proving that no
disease including cancer, can survive in an alkaline body.
From there...a friend told me about a Japanese medical
device that makes alkaline water. She went on to tell me
that since our body is 70% water, drinking alkaline ionized
water is the easiest way to raise your pH. It makes perfect
sense...the health "puzzle" is made up of many pieces
including water, diet, exercise, sleep, etc. But since 3/4
of that puzzle is made up of one big piece...WATER, drinking
enough of the "right" kind of water will have a HUGE impact

India and USA-ISRAEL are trying to Destabilize Pakistan:
Talks with Taliban Required.
Islamic Leader Munawar Speaks to large Friday Prayer
by Anwar Niazi
LAHORE, Sep. 20: Ameer, Jamaat e Islami, Pakistan, Syed
Munawar Hasan, has said that the observation of the Chief
Justice of Pakistan that arms made in US, India and Israel
were flowing into Karachi, should be an eye opener for the
government and its agencies.
Addressing the Friday congregation at Mansoora, he said that
Karachi had turned into the arsenal for unlawful arms and
added that until and unless, these arms were recovered,
peace in the port city would remain a dream.
Syed Munawar Hasan said, it was a paradox that whereas India
was sending arms and ammunition to destabilize the country,
Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif was anxious to give India
the status of Most Favourite Country. He said, it was time
that the rulers reviewed their stance in this regard.
He said that Karachi had become the abode of foreign powers.
Strangely enough, on one hand, the targeted operation
against the killers and extortionists was going on while on
the other hand, the bloodshed had not subsided. He said an
indiscriminate and strict operation must be carried out and
criminals be hauled up to restore peace in the mega city and
to end extortion.
Syed Munawar Hasan stressed that the APC unanimous
resolution supporting dialogue with the Taliban should not
be thrown into the waste paper basket only to serve US
interest. He said, the American lobby propagating that
dialogue with the Taliban was a sign of weakness, had not
learnt any lesson from the defeat of the US and NATO at the
hands of empty handed Afghans imbued with a strong faith. He
said it was high time that the rulers abandoned US slavery
and thought of saving the country from terrorism by holding
dialogue with the Taliban. He deplored that in spite of the
APC unanimous resolution, the government was not serious for
talks with the Taliban. He said if the two sides were not
serious, neither the talks would begin nor could their
success be ensured. He said Interior Minister Ch. Nisar Ali
Khan was now saying that the war on terror was our war
although he was sure this had never been our war. It was
purely an American war of which we had become a fodder, and
terrorism in the country would not end without dissociating
from this war.
Syed Munawar Hasan said if military operation and drone
attacks continued, Taliban's reaction would be but natural.
Therefore, it was imperative to stop military operation to

Army Using Campaign Against Boko Haram to Commit Horrific
crimes against Muslims
[We could not edit this for the English. Please read for the
The reality in today's Nigeria security challenges is that,
Boko Haram insurgency has become an alibi for security
official uses to kill, control and condition innocent
people. The recent resurgence of killing and conflicts in
Borno and now Nasarawa and recently in Apo Legislative
Quarters in Abuja shows that our security officials are now
the number one (1) Haram in the country. The life of
innocent civilians is no longer safe in the hands of people
that were paid to protect them. Recently i was shocked when
i saw the convoy of a government official with dossing of
security personals, out of confusion i was forced to ask a
friend, if that was the President of Nigeria? But, got the
shocked of my life when he says, it was the Chief of Army
Staff; then i said, something is wrong in this country. The
arrogance display of heavy weaponry and convoy of cars
accompanying the man was simply unacceptable in a democratic
set up. The recent display of rascality and immunity by our
military officials one will be force to asked, if truly
President Goodluck Ebale Jonathan, is still the President
and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria. This is because; the military seem to
be unaccountable and responsible to any constituted
authority in the country, except to their ogas at the
The conduct of the Nigerian Army and other security
officials in the whole insurgency issues can be said to
below professionalism, mar with suspicious. The Army on
several occasions have be caught pants down in the act of
killing innocent civilians, including the killing and
genocide in Baga and Bama communities in Borno State. The
military and our security personals have shown total
disregard in respecting the constitution provision and life
of innocent people they were paid to protect in their civil
engagement in the so called war against terror. The life of
an average Nigerian has no value in the eyes of our security
men and women. In today's contemporary every second,
minutes, hours, day, week, month and year is an added bonus
by the Almighty God, because, our security can extinguish it
anytime, with the trump charges of belonging to or a
membership of the so called Boko Haram militants.
The incident in the early hour of yesterday at Apo
legislative quarters, where innocent, hardworking and
deprived civilians, were gunned down for living in an
uncompleted building belonging to an Army General, shows the
general height of rascality and immunity by the military men
and women. For God sake 8 people, by army that were paid to
protect them. Funny enough, the security were quick to flash
the named tagged "Boko Haram" and the building their hiding
out. The question is, if that is their hiding out, then, the
General who owned the building is an accomplice, who
harbours Boko Haram members in his building. Unfortunately,
for both the military and State Security Service, the
testimonies of the residences of the area, paint a different
picture. Because, according to majority of the people
interviewed by pressmen, they not only said nice thing about
this innocent people, but, equally, denied any act of
terrorism labelled against these innocent Nigerians.
The Nigerian security personals failed to understand and
appreciate that fact, that, Nigerians are tired with all
their lies and stage managed misrepresentation of fact. They
killed innocent Nigerians for refusing to evacuate building
belonging to a General. A General trained and paid by our
taxes and resources. Is that a way to show appreciation for
all the sacrifice Nigerian and Nigerians labour for him to
attain such a position? Is commanding your boys to open fire
on these innocent civilians, the best way to resolve the
crisis? Can you compensate the life of this people with your
ill gotten wealth? What about if one of them happens to be
your child, what could possibly be your reaction sir? These
are pertinent questions our unknown General needs to reflect
upon as the blood of the innocent people hang on his neck
and that of his of family. With another Apo incident, after
the DCP Danjuma Mohammed episode, we are having no doubt,
our security especially the military are not for Nigerians,
but, against Nigerians, if the growing immunity and
rascality is anything to go by. The Boko Haram insurgency is
now a weapon in the hands of security officials to
dislodged, kill and blackmails innocent Nigerians to
Politicians, Defence contractors, Security operators, and
foreign partners are said to be the greatest beneficiary of
the current hopelessness; if the immunity and general
rascality is anything to go by. From observations and
research findings, Boko Haram insurgency has becomes a
business franchise by different people with different
motives or agenda whose end product is personal gains. With
a security budget of trillion naira, one is left with no
doubt, the beneficiary of the trillion naira budget, will
never end this insurgency. As a key observer in the Federal
Capital, the transformation of the city centre and environs
with new estates especially around Utako, Jabi, Jahi, Gudu,
Apo, Gwarinpa, and along Kubwa road etc, only reflect the
business and tastes of new landlords in the Federal Capital
City. From investigation, most of these building belonging
to all manners of people including members of our security
personals. A visit to any security or military barrack in
Abuja, underscores, the new owners of the land. The fleets
of wonders cars and luxuries in this barracks, reminds
someone of Willy Mutunga's poem, "Big men in Africa
Politics". From all indication, the salary of our security
personals is too small to purchase such state of the art
cars in barracks.
Now my questions- who is benefiting from the current crisis
in the name of Boko Haram insurgency? Are our civilians
leaders so intimidated and blackmail that they cannot act to
protect the people who voted them to power? Are we in a
diachy (a system where civilian and military shares power)?
Who holds our security men accountable and responsible for
their actions and inactions? Do we even trust and have
confidence on our security men and women? Do we believe
anything they say through press releases and all that? What
is the role of Citizens in this conspiracy? Is our media
organization with the people or with the brown envelops? Why
is the so called senior and upcoming Civil Society's
Organization so silent on these issues? Have they also
bought their conscience too? What is the role of foreign
security agencies - CIA and Mossad who we were told are now
the biggest defence and technical consultants to our leaders
and security agencies in this whole shenanigan?
It is important for men and women of goodwill to speak out
before it is too late. For the originators and sponsors of
Boko Haram insurgence, it is not a war that will end very
soon; it is a war against Nigeria for the profit of few
Nigerians. Just like American war on terror, with enemies
that multiplies every day, week, months and years especially
among Muslims and Islam; so also is the BOko Haram
insurgence, it is an unending war. For the unlucky
Nigerians, especially the deprived one that squat at various
uncompleted building to make earns for a living; Apo
Massacre is a reflection of what to come; start running
because you have no government or security to protect you.
You are now the FCT version of Boko haram.
For me, i believed the conspirators and gainers of this
unending wars against innocent Nigerians, are only digging
their own graves and are hastening the collapsed of their
power equation. Please don't stop, continue with the
immunity, but, remember whatever your gains (materially)
are, will torments, and destroy you at the end. Remembers
recently some internal system commanders died mysteriously,
while some are now facing one calamity or sickness with
severe consequences, it may be your turn today or tomorrow.
Remember your children will never enjoy these blood
resources you are accumulating; nor will they be responsible
members of the Nigerian society, because, you cannot
destroys other peoples' children present and future and
expect yours to be excellent; Allah is just and justice is
So, as we pray for God intervention, we equally wish
Nigerians to focus on government without distractions from
any news channels coming from anywhere, only then they will
understand the reality called Boko Haram. Please don't
believe whatever the security agencies are saying, they have
been hijack by a more powerful people, working to achieve
their evils plans. Remember they are only Nigerian security
by name, but, their allegiance is to some powerful people
who today control the clueless government of today. We had
an agent of the Zionist was in town, to attend a so called
Cybercrime conference, it all of part of the agenda; they
are afraid, of the reawakening about to happen in Nigeria;
but, we challenge them, whether they like it or not change
is a Nigerian; its shall come when they least expected it.
If you like create more Boko Haram insurgency; it will not
deter people to rise against this impunity. The blood,
tears, sweat and cry of the innocents people you are killing
across the Federation, is the fertilizer that will wet the
garment of your decline. May be someone will laugh at my
proposition as mere fantasy, but, i say to you am not
fantasizing, or going paranoid, but, this is a reality,
which the security and their sponsors knew is about to
happen, that, is why all this target killing and named of
tagged of Muslims as terrorists. When the time comes,
everything will fall into shapes and courageous people will
light the candle of hope and change with their blood, sweat,
tears, words and heart.
For Boko Haram insurgence it is indeed an unending war. Boko
Haram is conspiracy against Nigerians; an economic and
political weapon in the hands of evil people with sinister
agenda against the people of Nigeria. They are in our
government (apology to President Goodluck Jonathan), who
told the world that they are some Boko Haram members in his
government, but, was not Presidentially courageous enough to
named them, because, of the dangers and cost of such to his
life and that of his family. With the killing of innocent
civilians in Apo Legislative Quarters, Mr President we now
know, who the Boko Haram members are in your government.
Unfortunately, when unjust people oppressed the people to a
limit, they become blinded by their evil plans, which often
lead to their self destruction. The current insurgency and
pocket of uprising across the nation is nothing but,
liberation instruments in the hands of belligerent Nigerians
only if we reflect deeper and close ranks.
May Allah protect us in the hands of these spoils children
of yesterday colonialism and today's national hopelessness,
as they organised the loot and destruction of this promising
country and passionate and patient people of Nigeria. Allah
is watching and no doubt he shall visit and pays everybody
in his coins. We sympathized with the families of all those
that were killed since this insurgency began; equally to the
family of innocent security men and women who were force to
raise a gun against innocent people, without understanding
nor appreciating why they were asked to killed or maimed
their innocent brothers and sisters. But, remember you have
a duty, to refuse and resign from this rascality sponsor by
the enemies of Nigeria, for your better tomorrow. For
Nigerians, it is time to voice out against this impunity and
genocide taking place in our country. If you are afraid of
death, then, remember, the innocent people in the
uncompleted building never envisages, they will be kill. It
is better to died doing the right thing, than, to fall for
the bullets of these cowards, who are unable to solved any
problems, except killing of innocent civilians. For me, the
courage of Imam Hussein (as) in Karbala reminds me about
sacrifice and courage. For me i know death is a beautiful
necklace in the neck of a beautiful lady. So, fear not, it
is time to face reality and voice out against a rampaging
army of occupation and genocide. They want to create another
Palestine or Somalia in Nigeria, the earlier the people rise
against them and restore their sanity and dignity, the
better for them. For Boko Haram, is an unending war in this
land of hopelessness and lost opportunity?
