is still going on. It's a crisis in my view of both the ineptitude of the Nigerian government and the evil that men do. I have both family members and friends who are Muslim and doing something like this would never occur to them as a way of making a so-called political, anti-female education or anti-Western statement.
In my view there's no room for Sharia in a developing democratic nation and that's exactly what these Boko Haram fools want in Northern Nigeria. To kidnap innocent children, little girls in an attempt to make a statement and then threaten to sell into forced marriages at $12 USD a piece is a cowards move.
Just to clarify a few things, although this is happening in Northern Nigeria the perpetrators are NOT Nigerians. They're from the neighbouring West African nations of Chad and Cameroon. Not saying that there aren't some Nigerians involved with this but for the most part it's outside influences at the root of this situation.
This is why the Nigerian government is ultimately at fault because President Goodluck Idiot Johnathan should have addressed Boko Haram years ago and eradicated them by any means necessary. There are a number of international organisations and several Western and African governments coming together including the USA via AfriCOM to find these 230+ girls and return them to their families and loved ones.
One such organisation is +Amnesty International
and I for one support their efforts and have for some time over the years. We need more people to raise their voices in support of finding these girls especially those who are a part of the global Muslim community. Don't allow extremist to hijack your religion and faith. Because from a Western perspective that's exactly what is and has happened.
I for one am putting a fatwā out on Boko Haram In šāʾ Allāh and everyone who thinks and acts like them. It's 2014 and things like this shouldn't be happening in our world. That's all. Carry on and let your anger over this situation lead to actions which assist in finding these daughters of Nigeria.#BringBackOurGirls #ChefHumanitarianActions
