Don’t Link Islam With Terrorism – Sultan, Oyo Governor

The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar and the governor of Oyo State, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, have called on Nigerians to dissociate terror grooup Boko Haram from Islam.

They both said this in Ibadan, on Friday, while inaugurating the Bodija estate and environs Muslim Community Islamic Centre.

The Sultan said Islam was a religion of peace, hence the need for Muslims to continue to live peacefully with non-Muslims in their respective domains.

He urged Muslims to always emulate the act of Prophet Mohammed in their daily activities.

Also speaking, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, also denounced the public misconception of associating terrorism to Islam, stating that it is a religion of peace.

He therefore enjoined communities to always play active roles in Islamic activities for the development of the religion, stressing that, whatever they did here on earth, especially building of mosques, they would reap the benefits hereafter.

  1. Shakau (the ringleader of BH) was a sheik in Islam so he knew everything about Islam and he is only following the right Islam doctrine plz don’t even try to fool us, what a religion of peace. So why don’t u explain these quranic verses for us? Sura 5 aya 50;51. Sura 47 aya 3. Sura 9 aya 3-5, 12-13. Sura 8 aya 32-33 etc Islambad is a name state but it’s a massage in disguise and i totally agree with them. Islam is not just bad but evil.

  4. Thank u ur Royal Highness,with regard to ur comment here,I want to tell u categorically that u speak complete vague,ur comment is naturally political n it show sign of lack of seriousness in the face of increasing problem of annihilation of human life (which in comparison this group will find acceptance very difficult even in animal kingdom), n not worth think about. U ar trying,but more clearly, all we want from u is to put a permanent stop to this lingering menace of Boko Haram insurgency in the country,”dead is not life” pls. U chose to fight for name rather than life this really terrible of u. Be focused n stop looking aside,no one is challenging ur religion nor ready to do so,even if u perceived anything as such,its one of the top leaders(Abubakar Shekau) of ur religion who instead of portraying good message of peace he is rather killing,destroying n abducting people,changing people’s religion to Islam by force,can any Christian do that? Absolutely NO !! Abeg, try n repair ur house well b4 its too late,we are running out of patience pls.

  5. D inyamiries (igbos) re synonymous wit kidnapin n armed robbery, does dat mean my gud igbo frnds r armed robbers?…Hell no. So hate d persn n d crime nt criticising his religion

  6. Sultan and Ajimobi have spoken the truth. The actions and the activities of Boko Haram are not only contradictory to the preaches of Islam but also against the Quran and the Hadith of prophet Muhammad (saw). Hilary Clinton words on CNN: Al-Q aeda was created by CIA to destroy and defame Islam. Any times it strike the media will say islamic terrorists. Boko Haram is sponsored by the enemies of Islam. I pray to almighty Allah to reveal the perpetrators and disgrace them for the whole world to see so that Islam would be vindicated.
