Boko Haram does not represent Islam

“Boko Haram does not represent Islam” ” The media is mistaken by saying “Islamists” because that means ‘a person who practises Islam’ like Chemist from Chemistry or Biologist from Biology. They (Boko Haram) are either people driven to an insane frenzy or paid agents causing a bad image for Islam and destabilizing the country. Either way Islam and true Muslims should in no way be stigmatized or scorned. Muslims are suffering from these fanatical attacks as in other parts of the world. Islam has been a powerful force in these lands for over a thousand years and will not be driven out Insha Allah. Islamic culture and ethics in Nigeria can rival any part of the Muslim world. Look at the entrance to the Central Masjid of Abuja, Nigeria (correction of last photo) and pray for peace, stability and justice in these ancient lands.
