Islam,a Religion Of Violence? by goose1: 10:37am On Jun 28, 2011
This is in no way intended to stir up controversy,but to get to the minds of millions of Nigerias,muslims and chrisitians alike.Is islam a violent religion world over or just in Nigeria.
I ask this question because,if I am to be sincere with my self,each time I hear terrorism or bomb,what comes to my mind is Islam,Arab. Is this violence religious or ethnic?
Putting Nigeria predominantly muslim North and with a link to Arab world into perspective,one wonders what is actually responsible for the constant violence that emanates from that region. If I say it is religion, I will remember that we have Yorubas who practice Islam,yet they are not violent.If I think it to be ethnic,I remember that countries like Qatar,Saudi Arabia etc of Arab origin practice moderate islam.
So N/Ls,what do you think is actually the problem with our Northern neighbours

actually if you ask me,i would tell you dat islam is a religion of peace and the ALMIGHTY ALLAH as we read from his holy books  hates transgressors and agitators.the only thing we can say about the so called islamic extremist is that they always attribute their so called anger and unreasonable thinking to the fact that they are fighting the holy war known to us as JIHAD
        And they have failed to remember that the holy prophet muhammed (S.A.W) didnt fight any JIHAD against unarmed and innocent people he fought an army of unbelievers, so let's just say that the words of the holy prophet have been misquoted.so any act of transgression from the so called islamic crooned part of the world should be considered an act of terrorism,

Maybe you need to re-write your view so we can get your argument without any room for ambiguity,but if I must say something to what I understood from your comment,with respect to the topic of discussion-VIOLENCE in the name of religion,yes Nigerian muslim is very conservative compared to those you call the land of messenger.
And please make sense!

What is fanaticism. Refusing to follow another person? Why are you fanatical about paganism
Why should I copy the West? Why should the West not copy me for a change
I must allow homosexua.ls to marry, I must abolish polygamy etc
What is the West giving up in this global village

I will have to disagree with you. I think Islam is the best religion, but SOME muslims are the worst believers. Also about how many Muslims are over the world over a billion? You cant judged them based on what you see the Muslims in NIgeria, the Arab worlds, or the crazed somalis do. salaam
