The MEDIA HYPOCRISY IN NIGERIA
PARTICULARLY AGAINST MUSLIMS
with all honesty, and by God the creator, I don’t know where to start from successfully in order to captivate you with the Truth of realism; The Truth of media bias against Muslims in Nigeria, so that I can take you from anti climax to climax of never before.
I think I have an idea! Let us start with this;
There are some Nigerians who studied in the U. S and BRITAIN who were astonished at the responses and remarks of some Americans, Britons and other people from Technological advance nationalities.
Statement not limited to the following are credited to some Europeans and Americans;
Africans came from ape
Africa and Africans are very dirty.
Africans live on trees .
Africa this, Africa that and so on. This scenario also includes Nigeria. That is; Nigeria live on trees, etc.
The above funny remarks may not be seen on our Nigeria American Queen of literature’s Book titled “Americana”, but I can assure you that a great deal of similar and funnier remark can be found therein. So, her book “AMERICANA” is one of those which I advice you to read.
So, back to the funny but annoying remarks by the some people of the west about Africa and Nigeria specifically decided to paint the Picture of reality with the Media and the Movie industry. The media shown that not only what some people from the west say or think about Nigeria and Africa is false but merely an assumption which can be thought of the west also. Through the portrayal of such pictures, they were also able to debunk the confirmation Bias fallacy of some western Media Like CNN, BBC and FOX TV on Negative Portrayals of African Cities. For example, it is a known fact that before NIGERIA media became resilient and before Nigeria started speaking up against western media bias, when they show Nigeria, Lagos to be specific, they show on their international media the slump part of Lagos Nigeria, and not the part that is overwhelmed with magnificent structures, skyscrapers, Government reserved areas, recreation areas, airports, stadia, etc.
Another example is a depressing hypothetical projection of how Lagos may look like.
Nigerians blasted CNN for such dehumanized attributes by raining insults on CNN here >.http://www.247nigerianewsupdate.co/2016/07/nigerians-blast-cnn-on-twitter-after.html?m=1
The sole reason is for them is to cement their obvious silent opinion that countries as side from the west are less developed or underdeveloped and will never be developed.
In order for NIGERIA to boost their Tourism potentials and a country of foreign investment destination in Africa. Truth must be uphold in this solidified stage as the NIGERIA NeWS media and Movie industry helped shaped the views of potential investors, those with deformed image about Africa and Nigeria, not to forget those who conjure OR fabricated such despicable images and disseminate its information as reality had their illusions shattered.
So, what I have tried to establish is what the western media said about NIGERIA, polished about Nigeria to the world, wasn’t accepted hook, line and sinker by the NIGERIA media. Some non Nigerians who took the negative portrayals of Nigeria with a pinch of salt rejected the media view and subsequently were attracted by the NIGERIA massive tourism potentials and admirable atmosphere for investment portrayed by the NIGERIA news media and Movie industry.
Now, that is what I call amazing! Bravo! Bravo to Nigeria media.
This leads us to our prime aim that has its lineage from the Title; NIGERIA MEDIA BIAS AGAINST NIGERIA MUSLIMS.
The international media seem to have taking the intoxicant of continuously calling RADICALIZED MUSLIMS, “Islamic TERRORIST”.
Unfortunately, the ever rugged ever dogged ever Pertinacious media that stood tall against the western media propaganda finally gave in to another propaganda against Muslims. Not only did the NIGERIA media give in, they also accused the Muslims of Nigeria the same which the foreign media accuse the world Muslims of; MUSLIM RADICALS ARE ISLAMIC TERRORIST not called Muslim terrorists. That is; TERRORISM IS NARROWED DOWN TO THE ISLAMIC RELIGION, AND NOT THE INDIVIDUALS WHO COMMITTED THE ACTS; at least, if they are Muslims.
I have thought to my self either by retrospect, research and by intuition the reason for such bandwagon.
My conclusion was quite aching and depressing.
The Nigeria media could narrow an act of inhumanity perpetrated by few radicals to a religion practised by over 70 million Nigerians because the media itself is controlled by Christians majorly but not totally. Since the religion abused and bashed is not Christianity, but islam, the Nigeria media dominated by Christians saw no reason to stand against such media bias since it wasn’t against Christianity, rather they propagated their own version which consequently is hate bashing of Muslims and Islam. So ISLAMIC TERRORIST usage thrived because The main and popular Nigeria media are owned and controlled by Christians, so it is nothing for its media report on that. A Christian may want to dispute this rancorously, but let’s set the record straight.
Before President Muhammad Buhari won the election, that is; when Good luck Ebele Jonathan was still the president, the usage of ISLAMIC TERRORIST for radicalised groups like Bokoharam always took the centre stage of the NTA network news when ever Terrorism and bokoharam is mentioned before the news, at the Middle OR at the end of the news. Since Good luck Jonathan was a Christian, such act was never discourage rather, it was encouraged subtly. It should be known that at that time, the act of Bokoharam was called INSURGENCE, but Bokoharam were not called once as INSURGENT. Rather they were called ISLAMIC Terrorist while their actions bears insurgence. It is like a Doctor whose actions in treating human is referred to as medical practice, but not called Medical Practitioner as a Doctor.
When President Buhari won The election against Good luck JONATHAN, the word Islamic terrorists was never used again while Bokoharam is mentioned on NTA NEWS. THEY ARE SIMPLY CALLED INSURGENTS WHO CARRIED OUT INSURGENCY IN THE NORTHERN PART OF NIGERIA.
This was however inspired by the inaugural speech of president buhari.
In the speech, he openly said Bokoharam are far from Islam; THEY AREN’T ISLAMIC TERRORIST but Terrorist.
Their Actions he called; INSURGENCY not ISLAMIC.
He called Bokoharam insurgents and not ISLAMIC TERRORIST;
Again, let us say for instance that it wasn’t because of the Buhari led Federal Government remarks that influenced the NTA MEDIA STATION. LET US SAY IT IS BECAUSE HE IS A MUSLIM just like because President Good luck JONATHAN was a Christian, he saw nothing wrong in that, so his Emotions aren’t hurt on this.
As compared to Buhari who is A Muslim may feel hurt and bad when a few radicals are labeled with his religious sacred name. So, the chairman or editors of DG, will certainly have cautioned The news panel against using Islamic Terrorists but to use INSURGERNCY & INSURGENT in order not to hurt the president’s feelings.
THIS SAME HEADS OF NTA CHANNEL ARE AFRAID TO HURT THE FEELINGS OF THEIR BOSS, BUT HAVE BEEN HURTING THE FEELINGS OF OVER 70 MILLION MUSLIMS IN NIGERIA for the continuous usage of the Muslim religious term; ISLAMIC, as it is attached to terrorist.
This is clear cut Bias! Clear cut Hypocrisy and act of blackmail through sadism(the usage of words that aren’t suppose to and consequently cause depression in private and mockery in public).
This is hypocrisy!
It should also be known that virtually all Nigeria TV station except NTA still calls Bokoharam Islamic terrorists. However, the name insurgent has also been adopted by this TV stations sometimes. However, it remains that they still call bokoharam and other radicalised groups, Islamic. I was able to establish the reason In conception stage i.e Because the owners of this TV channels are Christians (non Muslims). We should Accompany this with the owners of top TV station in Nigeria.
OWNERS OF TV STATIONS
BEN MURRAY BRUCE
OWNER OF SILVERBIRD TV NIGERIA.
HE IS A CHRISTIAN AND NOT A MUSLIM.
Since Ben Murray Bruce is the founder and owner of Stv Nigeria, coupled with the fact that he is a Christian, he will never have cautioned his media board for the usage of ISLAMIC terrorist.
GUY MURRAY BRUCE
Co owned silver bird with his brother. Some might argue for or against. The most striking issue here is that; He is a Christian and not a Muslim.
Since the brother of Guy MURRAY(Ben Murray Bruce) won the senatorial seat to represent a Bayelsa constituency, Guy Murray Bruce has taken over as the current chairman.
MR JOHN MOMOH
John momoh is the owner of channels TV NIGERIA. It has high reputation if not more just like stv.
Mr John momoh is a Christian and not a Muslim.
Mr John momoh is the chairman and CEO of channels TV.
Mrs Olusola T momoh is the wife of John momoh and the Vice chairman of Channels TV.
Both of them aren’t muslims, but Christians.
CHIEF RAYMOND DOKPESI
He is the founder of Daar communication plc and the owner of AIT(Africa independent Television).
Chief Raymond Dokpesi is a staunch Catholic Christian.
CHIEF GABRIEL OSAWARU IGBINEDION (ESAMA OF BENIN)
He is the father of the former two time Governor of Edo state. He is a BENIN Traditional Chief (a revered one for that matter) and also a Christian.
He and his wife lady cherry or Sherry are not Muslims, but Christians.
Not to forget that he is the sole owner of ITV Nigeria and ITV communication.
ADAMS ALIYU OSHIOMHOLE
He is the executive Governor of Edo state and by extension, a temporary owner of EBS TV station. He is a Catholic Christian.
However, since he will soon be vacating the Governor’s seat at Osadebey’s Avenue, the next governor is an Anglican Christian.
GODWIN ENOGHEGHASE OBASEKI
is the Edo state Governor elect. He is a known Anglican Christian.
Conclusively, we have been able to establish beyond every reasonable doubt that the major news channels in Nigeria are owned by individual Christians.
It is worth nothing that the aberration; ISLAMIC TERRORIST, which was very popular during the Jonathan’s administration became extinct during Buhari’s administration Particularly in NTA and EBS TV. this was inspired by Buhari’s inaugural speech. However, STV, CHANNELS, AIT and ITV still uses mixture of the aberration [ ISLAMIC TERRORIST ] and the actual name of this radicalised groups [ Insurgents / INSURGERNCY ]
More over, the Freak and odd word ISLAMIC TERRORIST is more in use to describe radicalised groups in stv, channels, AIT, ITV than INSURGERNCY and INSURGENTS.
Now that we have explained the above in details, let us acquaint you with another painful scenario.
It is a common phenomenon that when an incident occurs, people sought to know the reason behind it from authority or the horses mouth(first source) and not one who has no authority on an issue or something of relevance.
For example; If in a village or town, an innocent Boy was beaten and stripped naked because someone called him thief. May be a month later, the boy died and the one who accused him of being a thief had to start confession which she did. Unfortunately, the boy was no longer alive to beg from, forgiveness. He has no family in that village and also known to be an orphan. The village inhabitants happen to have only one source of water; Stream water/Rainwater. It coincidentally happened that after the orphans death, whoever drank from the stream usually dies.
The herbalist and fetish priest announced that they were being tormented by the spirit of the innocent orphan.
After a period of time, some researchers and journalists decided to visit the dreaded stream. Investigators among them scooped little water, took it to a food and hygiene laboratory. Their investigation shows that after several test conducted, the water was contaminated with faeces and some chemicals that can kill gradually. Further topography investigation shows that a sewage company nearby that produces fertilizer had one of their drum undisposed properly near the source of the stream. The drum had burst open as a result of heat and some remains of the faeces and chemicals find its way like a running water into the source.
So the reason for death had been uncovered by oceanologists and Geologist. The media take knowledge from them as information from the horses mouth. This will be their basis of telling the public that the cause if death isn’t spiritual but human laxity . No matter how sensible and logical chronologically the stories from the chief priest of the village tells them(the media), they are disregarded as unproved, disproved with the investigative journalism (taking the information of the scientist and details of their research work) by the media.
Not applied when it comes to Islam/Muslims in Nigeria
It is well known and documented(internet)that almost the entire Muslims population in NIGERIA have not only denounced bokoharam but some have also written articles, created websites, give press release, interviews strongly denouncing that what Bokoharams are unislamic (against the Muslims scriptures).
It is common that a Muslim scholar of intellectual are sought by MEDIA CHANNELS TO EXPLAIN WHETHER WHAT BOKOHARAMS ARE DOING HAS ANY BASIS IN ISLAM. THIS IS SOMETIMES BEFORE ANY BREAKING NEWS THAT BOKOHARAM JUST ATTACKED INNOCENT CIVILIANS.
YET, YOU HEAR THE MUSLIM SCHOLARS OR INTELLECTUAL SAYING CLEARLY THAT BOKOHARAM AND THEIR ACTIONS ARE UNISLAMIC.
this is a regular talkshow, let’s view it from the situation when chaos happen.
When there is a bomb attack by Bokoharam and may be low or many casualties was recorded, the media channels usually go to muslim intellectuals to sought what Islam says on the dubious and evil kind, including the devilish attacks launched by bokoharam on innocent civilians, THE MUSLIM INTELLECTUALS STILL SAY TO THEM THE OLD MESSAGE; WHAT BOKOHARAMS ARE DOING IS EVIL AND AGAINST ISLAM.
In the same media station with the same cameras and correspondent say IN
The ISLAMIC TERRORIST sect just launched an attack on market women with bombs, killing 50 and Injuring 85.
These are the same persons who had sought for the Islamic viewpoint. After being clarified about the whole scenario by an AUTHORITY, the same media channels report as one agreeing with bokoharam and disagreeing with Islamic scholars and intellectuals. This for me is sickening and blind Journalism.
These NIGERIA media and its Journalist fit into the group of dullards who believe in what a fetish priest said about a stream as against scientific detailing cause by Oceanologists and Geologist of the sudden death of people after they drank water from the dreaded stream.
The NIGERIA media can’t claim ignorance of such depressing acts and Islamophobia. Bokoharam are terrorist, but aren’t ISLAMIC OR ISLAMIC sect. It is Muslim scholars who are qualify to declare bokoharam as Islamic and Muslim sect. On this, the Muslim intellectuals reject the media views and say; Bokoharam aren’t ISLAMIC TERRORIST SECTS.
What Does ISLAMIC MEANS?
THE WORD IS USED BY MUSLIMS TO MEAN ACCORDING TO MUSLIM SCRIPTURES (QURAN AND HADITH).
WHEN I SAY ISLAMIC MARRIAGE, IT MEANS A MARRIAGE WHOSE TENETS, ETHICS IS TAKEN SOLELY FROM THE MUSLIM SCRIPTURES (QURAN AND HADITH) .SO BY ACTIONS AND EVERYTHING, it is GUIDED BY ISLAMIC PRINCIPLES.
THIS IS SAME WHEN WE SAY
ISLAMIC LAW(LAWS FROM QURAN AND HADITH)
ISLAMIC VIEWS OR PERSPECTIVE, AND SO ON.
The Nigeria media would never ever claim that they don’t know of this as this is what is sought by them(what does islam says about this or what does the Islamic scriptures says about that or what is the Islamic view on this?…)when they invite for an interview, a Muslim intellectual/intellectuals.
Again, one reason I have been able to reach for this; IT IS BECAUSE THE MAJOR NIGERIA MEDIA AND NEWS CHANNELS ARE OWNED BY CHRISTIANS.
TEMINOLOGIES FOR DECEPTION
It is very unfortunate that Muslims have to suffer in the hands of the media for a sin which they know or knew nothing about.
The same media which had initially shown an uncompromising attributes now suddenly give in to hate and systemic oppression of Muslims through their psychological depressive news bias against Muslims.
It is very common to see that the individual news channels I mentioned above carry information on their news channels That; The Bokoharam Islamic Terrorists sect attacked a church and killed all the CHRISTIANS in the church.
This always happens( As headlines) when in actuality Bokoharam invaded a church, killed the worshippers there in and brought down the church structures to ground level with explosives.
Shocking when another incidence of such happens to Muslims also.
BOKOHARAM ONCE ATTACKED A MOSQUE AND KILLED MORE THAN 39 PEOPLE.
See news Report about massacred Muslims in the Mosque;
Bokoharam ISLAMIC TERRORISTS ATTACKED MUSLIM WORSHIPERS .
You see their bias and hypocrisy?
The acts of Muslim worshipers isn’t ISLAMIC(according to Islam), but the actions of Bokoharam are.
The reason for this devilish act is to show or create a scenario in the mindset of Nigerians that Islam is the enemy. The enemy that wants to extinguished Christianity out of Nigeria. So, it doesn’t suit their evil reason, for such headline to go thus; BOKOHARAM ISLAMIC TERRORIST KILLED ISLAMIC WORSHIPERS OR Muslims doing their ISLAMIC worship.
It is a big contradiction that will make many non MUSLIMS ask logical questions as to why should islamic worshipers be killed by Islamic groups? So the individual Christian media has to play the terminology of deception and continuous portrayal of Muslims as a whole, against Nigeria Christians.
For me, these bias are devilish, un biblical and unjust.
This section is solely concerned about why a Muslim commit a crime and he is called as terrorist, but that isn’t the case if it is a Christian that committed same crime; they are called armed bandit, robbers, cultist etc.
✒WHEN MUSLIM RADICALISED GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS DO EVIL MAY BE LIKE BOMBING, THESE MUSLIMS ARE CALLED TERRORIST/ISLAMIC TERRORIST.
However, when Christian groups or individuals do the same, they are called bandit OR robbers.
Christian Terrorist OR Ecclesiastical Terrorist aren’t used for them. The Nigeria media(those I mentioned above) have shown that the ENGLISH WORD
Are reserved solely for a particular people; Muslim radicals. On the other hand, Christian radicals go Scot free.
There are many radicalised individuals or radicalised Christian groups (from christian background) that I can mentioned for examples.
The examples may lead us to the last or ending part of this piece.
In a State in the southern parts of Nigeria, it is common occurrence to witness OR hear the bloody clash between cultists OR cults and the general public at least, once in every year.
When these groups unleash mayhem with their Guns, knives, Axe etc in their victims, news reports simply go by saying ALLEGED CULTISTS OR CULT MEMBERS CAPTURED / SHOT DEAD.
You will never hear a news reports saying CHRISTIAN CULTIST TERRORIST OR CULTIST TERRORIST UNLEASHED MAYHEM ON………
Some hypocrite Christians by ethics justify evil deeds of some Christians that there isn’t any problem on that since they didn’t say they were fighting religious war, or nothing to identify such people as religious people.
The Priests and their operations
In Bayelsa State, Nigeria, priest of the Catholic Church attacked soldiers and killed some of them.
Later information reveals that robbers actually took their form by wearing the white robe and pretending to be coming from burial ceremony.
The Christian hypocrite had a huge task on them. A liar changes his stance on issues aimlessly and very often.
It was now left for them to claim that they are religious or not.
If they say they aren’t religious, they are outrightly saying Bokoharam are not. This is because Bokoharam wearing Islamic dressing, uttering Islamic hymns are simply disguising as religious Muslims just as militants OR robbers are disguising to be religious Christians.
It will shock you to know that channels TV Concealed the priestly dressing of this militant here;
The horses mouth exposed them
For those who had extreme hatred for Muslims and called for the ban of hijab In Nigeria were stupidly keeping shut.
I was waiting for individual Christian to call for the ban of the robes of a Catholic priests since evil doers disguised with it to unleash mayhem. These priest militants were never called TERRORIST OR CHRISTIAN TERRORIST by the individual Christian media.
Any one’s who follow the news reports on military offensives against Bokoharam will know that these evil people use vary means to kidnap OR kill people.
✒Bokoharam uses old and brand new cars to bomb .
✒Uses children and women to bomb.
✒Dresses up like military men to bomb and Rob people.
✒Dress like Muslims to bomb.
✒Dress like a young lad in the South here with beard Completely shaved, T-shirt and Jean trousers on. There are alot of disguise bokoharam use. This includes wearing Nigeria police clothing.
Bokoharam dresses up with all manner of clothing to Kill, disguise with whatever they find concealer of one’s real identity to kill, yet the NIGERIA media had the guts and effrontery to launched a campaign for hijab ban. As if bokoharam only uses hijab. Bokoharam uses army clothing to kidnap chibok school girls. No Christian called for the ban of the nun dressing OR reverend sisters dressing as it resembles the Muslim women dressing and a potential disguise for Bokoharam. Nobody at all. This is pure hypocrisy .
The first known bomblast during JONATHAN’S regime was in October 1st 2010. It was carried out by Christians who felt they were marginalised in the Niger Delta, so the best they could do was not to attack pipelines, oil companies etc, but to bomb a large crowd on Independence Day at eagles square Abuja.
Never were their actions called terrorism OR were they called Terrorist at least. I am not even talking about being called ECCLESIASTICAL TERRORIST OR CHRISTAN TERRORIST. they were simply called militants, nothing more or less. It wouldn’t have been the case if they were Muslims .
The Same militants have threatened to slay Muslims if Bokoharam persist on killing Christians. As if it is only Christians that bokoharam are killing. Theirs is to kill innocent Muslims and not facing or attacking bokoharam directly.
Note: no such tag as Christian terrorist, Christian militants OR terrorist.
As if this blow on the Christian hypocrite isn’t enough, here is a pastor claiming to have been instructed by God to impregnate mother and daughter.
This is from Saturday vanguard of July 26 2014.
This pastor who directly receives commandments from God was not called sexual terrorist, or Christian sexual terrorist. Even when he claims that God sends him the SMS of revelation to carry such holy cowardice and sexual immorality. This is the game the NIGERIA Christian owned medias are playing .
it is very well shown on the Nigeria media that Bokoharam have killed Christians more in the North than Muslims. I want to challenge that myth.
There is different between ethnic clash that eventually resorted to what some people call Religious intolerance or clash and Bokoharam killings.
In some part of the north like jos, muslims have been dealt with more. In places like Kano, Borno yobe, it is Christians that suffers more when the clash becomes religious clash because of their limited population.
Bokoharam have destroyed more churches than mosque with just gun fire.
Bokoharam have bombed more churches than mosque.
With Borno, Yobe and Adamawa which traditionally has massive muslim population, and all its villages and towns with more muslim population than any other, it is quite clear that Muslims have been killed more than Christian populations. There is none of this town or villages that Bokoharam attacks and still remains as before, and what you have at the end is IDPs.
There are more muslim royal/non royal heritage that have been destroyed than any of other religions.
There are more muslim rulers(monarchs/kings) assassinated and slayed in cold blood by bokoharam than of any religion in Nigeria. One from many who was shot but didn’t die was former emir of Kano. Even Bokoharam tried to kill the new emir on Friday jumah service but he was lucky not to be around as the bombs rocked and killed lots of people.
There are more muslim scholars that have been killed by Bokoharam than scholars of any religion. One from many is Shaikh abani of Zaria
Bokoharam have killed more people in Muslim states than any other states in Nigeria.
Bokoharam have destroyed economy of Muslims more than of any religion.
Bokoharam have have displaced people from Muslim state more and have displaced Muslims more than people from other States and religion.
According to Amnesty international, the Nigeria Army have killed or committed many extra judicial killings in the name of suspected Bokoharam or alleged Bokoharam. And the same amnesty international provides more details by saying;
If you are at the wrong place at the wrong time, in Bokoharam plagued areas, you are more likely to be seen as bokoharam and killed.
Who are these alleged Bokoharam?
They are simply Muslims. All the army needed to assume them that they are Bokoharam and subsequently killed is ;
Having a Muslim name(not usually important , but necessary).
Having Beard(very important / necessary).
Having a praying mark on the forehead (not important).
Dressing with the traditional Muslim clothing like;
Turban as a cap
Caftan/agbada as full clothes that covers from neck to ankle or toe.
In other words, because of this, a Muslim gets killed and called suspected of alleged Bokoharam.
When the real bokoharam successfully carry out their deadly and suicidal acts.
That explains why the Army during president Good luck JONATHAN’s tenure will come out to claim that they ambushed OR killed 40 OR 50 Bokoharam members and the next seconds or hours, Bokoharam carries out massive raid and suicides attacks on other state, town/s or village/s.
Christians portrayed as those who have been kidnapped more, suffer more in the hands of Bokoharam.
We already showed above that it is a myth that Bokoharam have killed Christians more. Right now let us dare another myth which the NIGERIA media portrays subtly; Christians are kidnapped more and suffer more in the hands of Bokoharam.
About 2 years ago, Bokoharam stormed a school in chibok who were preparing to write an exam the next day. Kidnapped over 2 hundred girls and took them to their hiding.
This happened during the ex president JONATHAN’S regime.
It wasn’t up-to a month, the Christian association of Nigeria published the names of the school girls with its majority being Christians and few being Muslim. After some time, the most famous hash tag erupted
And I think it is because they were student and were females that is why such Publicity was given to them by the international community.
When the girls were kidnapped, within a month their names were published by Christian Association of Nigeria on the media. When any Christian or groups of Christians are killed in the North, their names and how they were killed finds its way into the media by CAN OR individual Christian medias.
There is nobody to give the Muslim narratives to the media. The individual Christian media aren’t willing to give the Muslim narratives Publicity just as they do to that of Christians.
We have an example reported by vanguard where it says that Christian burnt and killed in zamfara . However, after depth investigations, it was found that Muslims were the ones who were killed and Muslims died solely. This was further discovered and confirmed by the Governor. Can you imagine such mismatch of story and information would have become history tomorrow? Can you imagine this is what people would have been reading generations after as a fact?
There is nobody to give the Muslim narratives on the media always. What we often have is the Christian narratives as fact. So using the Christian narratives and individual Christian media presentation, it is easy to calculate and estimate the number of Christians massacred or kidnapped by Bokoharam. This is because, there is Hadly any Christian persecuted in the North that doesn’t get the news headlines.
Before about 21 chibok girls were rescued, or before the chibok girls, many Muslim girls and women/men had been continuously abducted by Bokoharam.
There was no hash tag for them! There wasn’t world recognition for them! There wasn’t any tears for them.
There were about a hundred women and children who were malnourished and kidnapped by Bokoharam, but were later freed by By the NIGERIA Army after an offensive attack was launched against the harams.
The following information and videos are tips of Icebergs;
Rescued from bokoharam
Women facing social discrimination and rejection after being kidnapped and later on freed from Bokoharam are Muslim women.
So to claim that Christians have been kidnapped more by Boko Haram, suffers more from bokoharam is not only untrue, but complete farragoes of distortion and misrepresentations. No doubt Christians have suffered from bokoharam, but Muslims have suffered more and rejected more.
The Test for Hypocrite OR the ordinary
It is quite common to hear or see in the media non Muslims claiming the elders or people in the north(muslims specifically) not wanting to criticize Bokoharam or they should criticize Bokoharam and so on.
A faithful question erupts in the mind of the sensible; DOES CRITICIZING BOKOHARAM REDUCES THE BOMB EXPLOSION?
DOES IT REDUCE THE KIDNAP OF THE INNOCENT?
DOES IT REDUCE THE NUMBER OF ATTACKS AND OUTRIGHT DESTRUCTIONS OF VILLAGES AND TOWNS?
DOES IT REDUCE THE NUMBER OF IDPs?
The straight answer is no!
So why the irrational urge of asking people who lives in the Den of Bokoharam To Start criticizing the BOKOS?
THE SIMPLE ANSWER IS JUST CRITICIZE THEM IN PUBLIC TO PROVE TO US THAT YOU AREN’T THEIR SUPPORTERS.
THIS IS SICKENING AND SADISTIC TO SUBTLY CLAIM THEY ARE FINANCIALS OF BOKOHARAM EVEN WHEN BOKOHARAM ARE KILLING THEM LIKE INSECTS WITH INSECTICIDE.
WHERE IS YOUR HUMANITY? WHERE IS YOUR HUMANLY SOUL?
WHERE IS YOUR RELIGIOUS ETHICS?
IS THIS THE LEVEL OF THE EDUCATION YOU BOAST YOU HAVE ACQUIRED HAVE TAKEN you TO?
#DIDN’T YOU HEAR THAT SHAIKH ABANI OF ZARIA, A MUSLIM SCHOLAR CRITICISED THEM HE WAS KILLED IN COLD BLOOD ALONG SIDE HIS SPOUSE/S.
#DIDN’T YOU HEAR THEY HAVE KILLED MUSLIMS WHO HAVE COME OUT PUBLICLY TO CRITICISED THEM especially those in rural areas.
HAVEN’T YOU HEARD OF HOW THEY ASSASSINATE MUSLIM KINGS AND DESTROYS THEIR PALACES JUST BECAUSE THEY SOUGHT FOR THE HELP OF GOVERNMENT AND CRITICIZED THEM.
WE KNOW YOU HAVE NO HEART EVEN IF YOU CLAIM YOU HAVE.
WE KNOW YOU ARE FULL OF DECEPTIONS EVEN THOUGH YOU CLAIM TO BE HOLY
WE KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
YOU ARE WHAT WE SEE YOU AS FROM YOUR NEGATIVE ACTIONS.
How many times have you CRITICISED MILITANT CRUSADERS FOR SAYING THEY WOULD START SLAUGHTERING MUSLIMS FOR YOUR SAKE, YOU HYPOCRITE WITH SNAKE FANG!
I SIMPLY GIVE YOU A CHALLENGE;
Come out in your house, be accompanied with a national media station, go to places where secret cults/militancy thrives and criticise them, curse them whilst being filmed. Make sure your name and surname display on the screen when shown on the screen during news time. So we will wait and see how you can last for a month mr/mrs criticizer.
I also challenged you to take a trip to Borno with the gwom of jos, the arch Bishop of Abuja archdiocese and the former CAN PRESIDENT AND THE NEW ONE. RENT AN APARTMENT AND DO THE SAME THING I ASKED YOU EARLIER AND SPECIFICALLY TO BOKOHARAM AND LET US SEE HOW YOU ALL CAN LAST FOR A WEEK.
CONCLUSIVELY, WE AGREE THAT CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS HAVE SUFFERED FROM BOKOHARAM, BUT TO CLAIM CHRISTIANS SUFFERS MORE IS LIKE SAYING BLACK AMERICANS HAVE THE HIGHEST POPULATION IN AMERICA . IT IS COMPLETELY BIAS AND FALSE.
