Boko Haram Are Not Muslims – Jonathan by oloriooko(m): 8:51pm On Mar 31, 2013
President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday said that members of the Boko Haram sect were not Muslims because no true adherents of Islam would subject the country to killings, bombings and other gory attacks the way they had done.

From their modus operandi, Jonathan stated that the sect members were products of international terrorism and “not members of Islam or any other religion in Nigeria.

“Those who mindlessly and indiscriminately attack worship places, schools, health workers, motor-parks, banks and ordinary road users must be seen as they truly are: the brainwashed pawns of international terrorism.

They do not represent any true religion or section of the country and we must never play into their hands by succumbing to their nefarious ploys to incite religious, ethnic hatred and division among us,” the president stated.

In his Easter message to Nigerians yesterday, Jonathan urged Nigerians who he described as “dear countrymen and women” to continue to exhibit restraint and understanding in the face of seeming provocations.

“We must have peace, security and stability to effectively implement our agenda for national transformation in all parts of the country and we shall continue to work ceaselessly to re-establish the prerequisite conditions for nationwide progress and development.”

Assuring Nigerians of the federal government’s commitment to peace in the country, the president said security agencies and the armed forces would protect the unity and territorial integrity of the country.

He said, “It follows, therefore, that to successfully achieve our vision of becoming one of the most dominant nations on the global stage in the shortest possible time, we must stay together as a people and continue to effectively resist by all possible means, the evil machinations of global terrorists and their misguided domestic accomplices who seek to provoke turmoil, hatred and harmful divisions among us.

“I assure Nigerians that our security agencies, armed forces and I will continue to fully discharge our constitutional responsibilities of protecting the unity and territorial integrity of this country with all the powers and forces at our disposal.”

On Easter celebration, Jonathan said, “I greet and felicitate with you all as we celebrate Easter which commemorates the resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ after his redemptive self-sacrifice for the eternal salvation of mankind.

Irrespective of our religion or faith, all holidays provide us with a fresh opportunity to establish stronger bonds with our family, friends and all those around us for more enduring, harmonious and beneficial relationships.

“As we celebrate this year’s Easter, I urge all Nigerians to rededicate themselves to living in peace and oneness with all members of their communities no matter their ethnicity, religious beliefs or places of origin.”

Forget amnesty for Boko Haram – Northern CAN
Meanwhile, the publicity secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) in the northern states, Elder Sunday Oibe yesterday maintained that there was no need for any amnesty for members of Boko Haram.

He spoke to journalists in Kaduna while reacting to a statement credited to the Anglican Bishop of Wusasa Diocese, Bishop Buba Lamido, who had call for an overhaul of the Christian body over its position on amnesty.

According to Oibe, “the Anglican bishop does not understand what amnesty means.

It’s on good note to know that all the politicians that have been accused, arrested and those who have been facing trial, including the ones that there houses have been destroyed and carry ammunition are all politicians from the same part of the country.

World Muslim League tasks Nigerians on peaceful co-existence
And after days of deliberations by scholars from within and outside Nigeria, the World Muslim League (WML) has advised Nigerians to rekindle the once mutual understanding which existed amongst them irrespective of their religion, creed and region.

I guess those who are supporting them and calling for their amnesty are not muslims too. So muslims, over to you, are boko haram members muslims?

Yes or No?

If they are not muslims, I urge all muslims to rise and flush both them and those calling for their amnesty.

But if they are muslims, the continue to defend then and ask for their amnesty.

If the Muslims Disagree, then they must be proud of Jihad as political instrument. I really doubt if murder is a structure in the verses of the Koran, if it happens to be, then it has to be re-written.

You believe it was just a political statement intended to woo Yoruba muslims, but If it was Tinubu or Buhari that made a similar statement, you would have skinned them alive.

By your description of Bokoboys. Does GEJ has power to grant foreign terrorists amnesty and rehabilitation in Nigerian Soil if the pressure becomes unbearable?

Can he extend the amnesty to Al shabab and Al qeada, if he were to bow to the voices of the majority (NE, NW, NC and SW)?

When it is convenient for them, opponents of amnesty will use the "ghost" or "foreign terrorist" definition for Boko Haram. Granting amnesty to ghosts or foreign terrorists is essentially foolish and senseless.

Nigerian jails are filled with thousands of youths, much like those who were used as foot soldiers by MEND. The FG calls those prisoners BH members and we all know that these are not foreigners or ghosts. An amnesty program is in order and will significantly reduce the killings,much like it is doing in the SS region. Everyone agrees that the most extreme and violent terrorists must be hunted down.
Re: Boko Haram Are Not Muslims – Jonathan by Ngwakwe: 7:38am On Apr 01, 2013
Had these Boko Boys and Girls been attacking the Government Establishments and vile Politicians, I would have been sympathetic to their cause as I find it unjust for a poor harmless or hungry thief to have his hands chopped off in Sharia Court instituted by these same Politicians while Public Servants/Politicians earn six months in prison (if any) and still enjoy their loot thereafter.

If you have assess to these Boko Boys and Girls foot Soldiers, please tell them to fight on the side of impoverished Nigerians who will appreciate their agitation if it becomes noble fight for justice which it's not at the present.

Re: Boko Haram Are Not Muslims – Jonathan by Nobody: 8:04am On Apr 01, 2013
Sometimes I wonder if he thinks before he utter somethings, saying this type of thing will only raise dusts about his claim not to know the BH members or sponsors. This statement, according to my perspective, shows that he knows the people behind the inceasant bombings, yet he let them continue. Now I know that common sense is not really common. On the other hand, @OP! Where's the link to back up your claim? Until I see a link, I will take this to be a media propaganda.

The fact that all known terrorists are Muslims is an open secret and gives your clueless president out,all the bombings recorded around the world since the beginning of terror has been traced to one Muslims terrorist sect or another.
GEJ is just clueless and confused,simple.
