Y NOT ALLOW UR PROPHETS TO FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES,ARE THEY DUMB OR DEAF,BLIND?

Peaceful Co-existence btwn Muslims and Christians, feasible?

From 1966 till 2011 Nigerian space has become a scene of brutal bloodsheds. Does that fertilize peaceful co-existence, if not what then is the tendency for spilling Christian bloods in the North? In 1966 there was a pogrom, followed by mass exodus. In 1980, Maitatsine ethno-religious disturbance in Kano, Sokoto, Kaduna, etc claimed over 4000 Christians lives, churches and properties were burnt and state Government paid only 8million Naira to victims. Maitatsine died but his lieutenants went underground. In 1982,they surfaced at Bulumkuku in Maiduguri, also in Kaduna -killing over 400 SouthernXtians ,distroying their shops, hotels and churches. In February 1984 Muslim fanatics inflicted horrors on Gongola state Christians killing over 700 people. In 1985, more than 100 people died after hours of Muslim killing spree in Gombe. On a Sunday, in March 1987,during a holy period, a Church in Kafanchan was full of Kaje Christians when it was surrounded by Muslim militants who set it on fire with petrolium. That 1987 religious violence spread all over northern states. There was again, exodus of Southerners like in 1966.IBB struck and the planners went underground. In 2000, from Feb-to-March, ethno-religious clashes rained fire in Kaduna State, many lives were lost, churches and mosques burnt. In June, as well as, in August 2001 Jos indigenes and settlers clashed, Muslims and Christians lost lives and properties. There were clashes in Markurdi, Funtua, Zaria, Lagos, Enugu and Onitsha between Muslims and Xtians in June -October 2001. Attacking Christians,killing them, burning churches, shops, beer parlors have become a routine in Northern Nigeria, from 1966 -2011.
Tell me, "Where Peaceful Co-existence between Muslims and Christians in Nigeria lies other than in sharing the oil revenue ?

only prayer

I wonder why always people think nagetively wether you are notherner or southerner it doesn't matter it can happen any were.so let's pray may God bring an end to this since everyone knows nigeria believe in God

Stop treating retarded animals like Humans!

After all said and done, the truth is; "Moslems hate non-moslems" and their Koran promises the seven virgins in their "heaven" for every non-moslem they kill in the name of their "Allah". All these non-sense about a handfull of them killing people, while the rest are normal human beigns is outdated. You need to be either brain dead or mentally retarded not to notice that, "never in any of those killings commited by the so-called few bad muslems has any muslem head of state in any country or continent of the world apologized for the atrocitities of the so called few". Why? The asnwer is simple, non-muslems although more inteligent, civilised, humane, kind, wealthier, stronger, are also the only true humans on earth. Therefore, it's high time we treat these animals like the animals they are. Enough is enough, I believe they are worst than Hitler. Hitler was one insane man, but these are billions of insane animals with no regards for human life ....... you need to be human to have regards for human lives .... and obviously they are not.

Religion is not Satanic.

The people who are excessively aggressive about religion are from statistics the greatest out-lords operating in ignorance and folly. They paint a negative picture that makes people from other religion to affirm that Satan is the originator.

Everywhere around the world the religion is notable for a god who drinks human blood. little value for human life. A great hell fire awaits these monsters. The dull minds are easily manipulated because they are trained to worship man,and jobless.

Till the end of the world there will be different religions and point of views. They cannot kill the whole world. A purposeless mission.

Please leave yorubas out of this

I am getting tired of IGBOs blameing everybody especailly the yorubas for losing a stupid dumb war they engaged in with other nigerians and call themselfs intelligent IGBOS how can you loose 1 million of your people and still loose a war and call yourself intelligent everybody is wrong except you The yoruba did what is right for them at the time and will do what is good for them this time or in the future, yoruba will protect themselfs from IGBO domination you bad mouth yorubas at every oppotunity you get but your people live in yorubaland make money in yorubaland and the same yoruba you hate so much accommodate you with love please leave yorubas alone and go live in north since you cannot live in your own land one thing i will tell you yorubas will not be so stupid to loose over 1 million of its people and still loose a war Mr inteligent IGBOS

Please leave President Jonathan out this

Leave the President out of this, the ugly trend started way before the man was born. The Igbos saw this comming 45 years ago. For some foolish reasons the Yorubas teamed up with today's Boko whatever and fought a war of terror against this intelligent IGBOS. I am not a Nigerian, but i would suggest that the Igbos should just seat, and watch as your Biafra would be handed to you on a platter of gold. Please never go into any union with the Yorubas as they are not a bunch you can rely on. A word is a enough for the wise. This is the end of my authentic story, and I am sticking to it.

pls leave the north o, its

pls leave the north o, its better to be kidnapped in the south for ransome. olodo

NOT RELIGION BUT SELFISHNESS

I AGREE WITH U KAMILU M. ZAIMU.THIS IS NOT ISLAM TEACHING EVEN THOUGH THERE ARE VERSES IN THE QU'RAN THAT SPEAKS ABOUT WAR SO ALSO IN THE BIBLE BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN WE SHOULD KILL OUR FELLOW HUMAN BEINGS IN THE NAME OF RELIGION.BOKO HARAM IS A SELFISH GROUP OF INDIVIDUAL BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT FIGHTING XTAINS ALONE BUT THEY ARE FIGHTING BOTH XTAINS AND MUSLIMS SO THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION.

Morons.........Buzus

The buzus in this whole scenario are the southerners. What are you doing in the north? Is it when you bring your family home in a casket that you will be satisfied? We southerners are the ones that made the north what it is; let us leave the place for them and watch them grow. They dont want us in Nigeria and they dont want to be separated from us. So bring your family to the south and you can stay there alone if you must (like civil servants). When you hear bhamm....... you run. LET THE NORTHERNERS (sorry for the northern christians) BE........... LET THEM BE AND KILL THEMSELVES.

Instead of saying what you

Instead of saying what you can do about those barbarians that are taking people's lives; you are talking absolute rubbish. Next chapter joooo.

there is

leave islam out of dis

Its not an islamic war, its a war of a sect in an area, islam is a religion of peace.....ma sallam

@ M Bukar.Maiduguri

Go away you this stupid terrorist, Satan has billions of followers as well. You these bunch of non tolerant and violent nuisance. Why should Sharareporters censor material to hide the truth of your blood shedding activities? Sharareporters will continue enjoying patronage from responsible people with true God.

A GOOD ADVICE TO SOUTHERN BRETHREN.

"A word is enough for the wise",Dont bank any money in these sharia states,dont bother about landed properties,dont raise your children there,dont endanger your wife's life by allowing her to live with you,if you must run the risk of living there because it is the source of your livelihood or bussiness ,well and good but do it alone.

The unity of Nigeria is

The unity of Nigeria is paramount to all patriots. The display of unedited messages through your medium is to say the least unprofessional. How on earth will you allow such unbridled remarks on prophets of God with over a billion followers to be made on the pages of a newspaper. I had high regards for Sahara reporters but the publication of uncensored material which offend the sensibility of your consumers is something that is totally condemnable. If you want to continue enjoying the present level of patronage, then reconsider your editorial policy of supplying to consumers both the grain and chaff.A responsible media outfit will supply us with the former and keep the latter.

Hopeless person, why not they

Hopeless person, why not they join you in Germany. Idiot.

RELIGION ISSUE !!! RUBBISH

Anytime the Northerner Elite feels the power somehow is about to move away from their grip some blind and devilsh followers take to the street where other Nigerians tribe resided and start killing innocent people.
Religion issue !!! Rubbish ,CONVINCE me each one of you calling this region issue that in your life you don't have a trusted friend from OPPOSITION RELIGION.
WHEN ON EARTH WILL THE LEADERS GET IT INTO THEIR LOOTING SKULL SOME TRIBE CANNOT BE HELPED.

@isah'a tales by moonlight(1)

True the Lord our God is One God & not 3 persons in trinity! The same holy book says 'to love your neighbor' as yourself" yet some people believe to get their message across is by killing innocent Nigerians. Well! be rest assured that "HELL" is waiting for these cowards.

God does not delight in the death of the righteous; why kill innocent people all becos you want to get at the govt. & their agencies. Who has made Boko Haram a judge over others?

Let's leave religious sentiments out of this and call a spade as it is - a spade! Terrorism is evil and should not be condoned.

Umu Oke is a Dummkopf!!!!

I believe you are an idiot...You say "The life of one Igbowoman worths more than those of 500 Hausa/Fulani women." and you took away all doubt about your foolishness...

What are you doing in Germany typing rubbish? Why are you not in Biafra fighting for freedom..I bet you are wiping the asses of Hitler's descendants and you probably import spare parts in your free time after smelling all the white man shit...

You know only two can play this game and people like you are the ones we do not want in Nigeria...It was 99% to 104% of your people that voted for LAMEDUCK JONATHAN... Your Lameduck President is practicing brinkmanship, not leadership..Why don't you blame Lameduck Jonathan? Dummkopf=Idiot!!!!

ISLAMIC KILLINGS

I am very confused and I want our moslems to help me. You say that because I am not a moslem, then I am worshipping a 'false God', and I will perish in hell, while you are sure you are worshipping the right one and consequently sure of heaven. I thought you should be happy with that and just go ahead with your worship and make heaven. Why the wild appetite for the blood of people you feel are already heading for hell? Or are you no longer sure of your place in heaven?

You are pool by making this

You are pool by making this statement, who tell you it is sharia that gave boko haram right to do what they are doing? are they fighting with Government or Christian? it is govt that did injustice to them and now fighting back. islam does not allow waht they are doing in any way. learn about islam before you start ur critics out of ignorance

Sorry for your rotten soul

Oke, nemesis will soon catch up with u and your 419 business in Germany. Hahaha.

boko haram!

this is nothing near religion, this is madness

Our Homes are our Castles....Go home Southerners.......

Our Homes in South-South, South-East, Middle-Belt and South-West are Our Castles. What are Christians/Southerners doing in the Muslim areas? Are you there waiting to be killed ? Your life, safety and survival are on your hands. Decide wisely, depart on time, Sharia States are dangerous, go home to your ethnic castle, your home is your castle where Jihadist cannot penetrate. Over the years, Nigeria protects oil installations only and not citizen's life and property. You are always helpless in the North. Now, Boko Haram is on the march, don't wait, don't stay and don't go to the North to be killed, for whatever reason. The life of one Igbowoman worths more than those of 500 Hausa/Fulani women.Relocate all Igbowomen down to the South. You are self-guilty, to blame, if you continue to live in Muslim North. Depart now.Go home Southerners, Our homes are Our Castles.Long live Federal Republic of Southern Nigeria.Mazi Umu Oke,- Germany

Bombs galore

The bombers must concentrate their actions on the profiteers of the status quo rather than hapless and disarmed nigerians like themselves. let the bombs keep blasting in govt circles

The antiislam never rest in

The antiislam never rest in their smear media campaign. Wenever a small portion or sect within d Islam act badly, they generalised it on all muslims. Wat is ur comment about the atrocities ur christian brothers in Europe &America are comiting in midle east and Libya?
