The National Missioner of Ansar-ud-deen Society (ADS), Abdur-Rahman Ahmad, has declared the Boko Haram insurgency a collective embarrassment to all faiths in the country.

Mr. Ahmad, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday, in Ogbomoso, Oyo State, said the group represented no religious interest, adding that their objective had yet to be known.

He said that it was difficult to know in whose interest they were fighting as they had attacked all faiths.

“I state unequivocally that Islam is different from Boko Haram. We don’t know who they are, their sponsors and why they are killing people.

“They ought not to be killing Muslim scholars, if truly they are fighting in the interest of Islam,” Mr. Ahmad said.

He described the group’s action as anti-Islam, and ungodly, noting that Islam is a religion which appreciates knowledge and research.

“The Muslims were the front-runners in scientific education before the industrial revolution and would not have negated education.

“In this regard, the ADS and other notable Islamic organisations had contributed immensely to the nation’s educational development,” the missioner said.

Speaking on the use of hijab, Mr. Ahmad said that the Muslim community had designed one that was moderate for use in schools.

He stressed that everyone was entitled to his or her religious conviction.

    *MAI TATSINE, BOKO HARAM AND CAN:
    THE BITTER TRUTH*.
    “Marwa Maitatsine, was a
    Christian until his death!! Back in 1954,
    there
    ware series of meetings by the highest
    body
    of Christian association in the northern
    Nigeria, in Jos, which I happened to be the
    secretary, taking the minutes of that
    meeting
    (then, I was an undergraduate student of
    Christian Theology). Part of the result of
    that
    meeting was, to sponsor some people
    among
    ‘us’ to go to Arab countries as new Muslim
    converts, and learn Arabic and Islam. Their
    mission is to come back to Nigeria as
    Muslims
    clerics, use their Islamic knowledge to
    preach
    violence, distort original Islamic teachings
    and
    if possible cause a riot in the North that
    will
    make northern Nigeria a history. Five
    people
    were nominated for the job, and sent to
    Sudan to start their mission. 3 of them
    refused to come back and execute their
    plan,
    but spent the rest of their lives in Sudan as
    true Muslims. The remaining two;
    Muhammad
    Marwa and Birema came back, Marwa was
    sent to Kano, and Birema was sent to
    Niamey
    Niger Republic.”….Professor Dauda Ojobi
    Professor Dauda Ojobi, a former secretary
    of
    Northern Christian Association of Nigeria
    (CAN), a retired Professor in Benue State
    University faculty of Law, the 3rd Reverend
    Father from northern Nigeria, after Paul
    Gindiri, and GG Ganaka, The first Nigerian
    overseer of Baptist Church in Kaduna, and
    One time commissioner of Justice in Bauchi
    State. Mai Tatsine the obsolete version of
    Boko Haram, which began their reign in late
    50’s in Kano and some other parts of
    Northern Nigeria, their ideologies were
    similar to that of Boko Haram, they forbade
    what Islam allowed, and allowed what
    Islam
    made haram. They claimed western
    education
    is sin, they rejected anything brought by
    technology, they were popular with saying,
    wearing a wrist watch is haram, using
    radios
    and television is haram e.t.c. (considering
    the
    technological advancement of that period).
    The spiritual leader of Maitatsine movement
    was Muhammad Marwa a.k.a Mai Tatsine.
    The
    Emir of Kano Sanusi, once suspected
    Maitasine as fake Muslim when he
    discovered
    Maitatsine received goods from Vatican
    Palace. After sarki confirmed his findings,
    he
    expelled Maitatsine out of Kano, in early
    60’s.
    Mai Tatsine was later brought back to Kano
    by
    Gov. Rimi in 1979. Rimi believed that
    Maitatsine would help him win his
    reelection
    through charm. After the Maitatsine’s
    death,
    Shagari, the then President set a Anya Goru
    panel to investigate the crises. Prof. Dauda
    has made his submission in that panel, but
    when the President, saw the report, he said
    no, the white paper will not be issued on
    this
    report, because it may result to crises, so
    the
    white paper was not issued, till date.
    Professor Dauda became Muslim in 1966,
    after he came back from Rome, where he
    went to further his studies, in Christian
    Theology. He is still alive and has become a
    Muslim preacher for over 40 years. What I
    quoted above was from his lecture I
    attended
    in Bauchi, 2002. Ever since, no any Christian
    scholar or CAN executive denied this
    statement from Prof. Dauda . Are they
    waiting
    for his death before they deny it? -Security
    operatives that always claim they want
    uproot
    the Boko Haram mayhem did not
    investigate
    in that angle, why? -Why the relationship
    between Jerry Gana (CAN chieftain) and
    Muhammad Yusuf, founder of Bokoharam?
    The former has bailed the later from police
    custody several times. -I see a double
    standard approach and hypocrisy by the
    security personnel, in the investigation. -I
    began to believe Boko Haram is the
    creation
    of some enemies of Islam possibly CAN
    (not
    Christian), is never a creation of Muslims. –
    Remember, Hillary Clinton once said
    Taliban is
    their creation, to fight Russians. I beg your
    pardon, if this write up hurt you in any
    form,
    it’s not intended, but facts need to be set
    straight.Spreadthe truth its not az
    religious fight
