  1. If it is in the Church or any Ministry they will say is the work of Muslims extremist, what of this that happens in the mosque? indeed this is the work of the opposition side for retaliation. What we want them to know is that ISLAM doesn’t sent anybody to do suicide bombing ,if anything happens anywhere they should no that is not guaranteed and supported in ISLAM. ISLAM is the religion of peace so whoever become a suicide bomber or terrorist they should no that he is not a MUSLIM, Qur’an says: 5:32 Whoever kills an innocent person is as though he has killed the whole of humankind and whoever saves a life is as though he saves the whole of humankind and ALLAH (God) will punish the one that kills but for the one that saves ALLAH (God) will reward him for his bravery deed. Many people have been influenced by what media and other people say about ISLAM. You can never know ISLAM by getting information from enemies of ISLAM. Therefore I challenge all people that think ISLAM is the religion that supports killings and suicide bombing to provide a proof from the Qur’an where ALLAH (God) says u should kill an innocent person. They will never find it.
    And even if you think ISLAM is the religion of evil just get a copy of Qur’an (ISLAMIC Scripture) and read so that you will justify that.

    • ok! Allah said you should not kill innocent person, who then did he instruct faithfuls to kill and come and inherit 72 vergins in heaven?

  2. And we pray to Almighty ALLAH (God) to bring peace in Nigeria and in the whole World in General. May peace prevail forever and ever in our life, and may He bring understanding between the the different religions, May He also expose whoever is doing evil act and give him the punishment that he deserves. AMEN

  3. Enemies of is what they are, they know quiet well that, muslim will retarliate,any act of harrasement, that is why they are being used against themselves.
    Its now left for this religion groups to come together and say no to violence.

  4. I wish my Christens brothers will no very well About country could have been the better place to live.may( Allah(GOD)help this country for ones. Amen. One day peace will com back to jos.

  5. Good coments! Please lets leave sentiments apart and jointly strive to build a nation we will be proud of, nation free from bloodshed, nation where anyperson lives in any part without fear or doubt. God bless the north, the south, the east and the west, God bless the christians, the moslems and the atheist. I pledge to Nigeria my country to be fathfull loyal and honest, to serve Nigeria with all my strenght, to dephend her unity……… So help me GOD. Pls take the pledge. God bless NIGERIA.
