Boko Haram Has Killed More Muslims Than Christians, Says JNI

By SaharaReporters, New York

The Muslim umbrella body in Nigeria, Jama'atu Nasril Islam (JNI) has expressed dissatisfaction with Boko Haram's rejection of the proposed amnesty by the federal government.

 In a statement by its scribe, Dr. Khalid Ahmed Aliyu, JNI criticized the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) for its resistance of the policy, asserting that Boko Haram sect has killed more Muslims that Christians.

JNI said it was perplexed that while the call by the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of JNI to grant amnesty to Boko Haram has received the strong support of some prominent Christians, the President of CAN, Pastor Ayo Oritsejfor and others were confusing the country's leadership on the way out of Nigeria’s security challenges.

“Our concern is what is the motive behind the total rejection of amnesty by them?” the statement asked.  “Do they benefit from the quagmire of the Boko Haram? When where they appointed Special Advisers to the President on the Perpeturation of Insecurity? However, if leaders’ utterances cannot ventilate the atmosphere for peace at a time when peace is most needed what else will guarantee peace? The unfortunate menace of Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria is indeed an accident beyond religion which affects every Nigerian directly or indirectly and upon which no passing of bulk can be logical.”

Arguing that the menace of Boko Haram has affected more Muslims than non-Muslims, JNI described Islam as a glass house from which no true Muslim should throw stones, and that it stands by the teachings of Islam which cautions against making provoking statements in times of anger because it only leads to regret.

It therefore appealed to the Federal Government to proceed with its plans for amnesty as “a potent way of restoring peace to Nigeria without minding any distractive tendencies of some conservative elements” who may have a selfish agenda.

“Consequently, as always JNI uses this medium to call on the Federal Government to do away with all the vituperations of the CAN President and his cohorts by swinging into action undeterred over the issue of granting amnesty, with all stakeholders involved carried along such that peace and prosperity will  return to Nigeria. In the same vein, Muslims must not be oblivious of the significance of prayers, therefore Muslims are called upon to fervently pray to Allah, the Most High for the harmonious existence of Nigeria. Meanwhile, we seize this opportunity to remind all Nigerian Muslims of resisting any provoking temptation."

It is unclear if JNI, at the time of this statement, actually knew that Boko Haram has itself denounced the amnesty initiative, as JNI did not criticize the violent group about its rejection.

In a broadcast quoted by AFP on Thursday, the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau said it was the government, not Boko Haram, which needs a pardon from his group, which he said has done no wrong.

You could have saved yourself all these typographical exercise by simply noting that Jehovah = God = Allah = Chineke = Eledumare.

Capiche?

boko haram amnesty

boko haram, islam you are the same. what do you really want? cos obviously you are very confused, you don't even know what you are doing. you are all confused elements. what i see about you is that you love to destroy lives but sooner or later what happened to the philistines in the days of moses will repeat itself again. boko haram will destroy boko haram.JEHOVAH IS LORD!

So what are you guys(JNI) saying???

JNI..Do you see Christians killing Muslims and trying to force Christianity in any regions of Nigeria? Is it the fault of Christians that BH an islamist group is killing muslims? The answer is no. You shouldn't try to Islamize any regions in Nigeria because Nigeria is a multi religious country... So because Boko Haram has killed more muslims than Christians (not that they are killing people?) that is what makes them bad to you guys right? Double standard from the religion called Islam. Your subjects are caught up in your very own deceit and yet you cry foul. The CAN president is 100% right to have advised our mumu president NOT to grant amnesty to your Boko Haram. Doing that will cause more harm than good to Nigeria, especially to Christians. Are they not reading the same Quaran as you guys? Why don't you guys make them stop. The FG of Nigeria need to go HAM on these a-holes called BH, not grant them amnesty. Period!!!

@Tafidan DDAJI: What PEACE IS THAT WITHOUT JUSTICE ?

@Tafidan DDAJI

U claimed "But between Tundermash who wishes the nation a continued calamity and Tafidan DDAJI who suggests to the nation a way out,who is worse?"

What PEACE IS THAT WITHOUT JUSTICE ? I keep asking you about justice for those murdered by Boko Haram and you keep sidestepping it as if those killed are Ramadan rams ?
Shagari eliminated Maitasine terrorists in 1980s, why should Dumbo Jo give amnesty to Boko Haram terrorists in 2013 .... is it because Dumbo Jo is a confused soul ? Did OBJ not chase the MEND thugs deep into the creeks ? How about amnesty for armed robbers and all murders in prison ?
I just asked you for the location where you claimed America is negotiating with ALQAEDA terrorists and you are dodging as usual. If you are Boko Haram representative, atleast confirm it so that President Foolish can negotiate with you as Imam Shekarau had said no negotiation !

.....but allah allows it !!

It may be true more muslims are killed but allah allows it. For ages sunnis have been killing shiites in the name of blood thirsty allah !!

Even killing oneself (suicide bombing) to kill infidels is allowed in islam. It all works out perfectly for the bloodthirsty demon called allah and his sexual pervert, pedophile, epileptic, illiterate, armed robber prophet mohammed.

If only they can limit the killing to themselves no one will complain. It will be good riddance to bad rubbish !!

Those who bow to this filthy demon (5 times daily) need to dump him in a hurry and run to the one true God whose name alone is JEHOVAH -time is fast running out !!!

Boko haram is destroying buhari and tinubu not jonathan

if these assertions are not madness then can some sane 9jas, tell me what it is? Boko haram has killed more Moslems so they have the right to clamor for amnesty abi?-Who gave them the right to even kill Moslems-was it Allah? It simply means they should never be granted the socalled amnesty that sultan seeks for them cause they are murderers-its an admission of guilt-what type of country is this-that a sect will feel justified in killings its members and then come out in the open to admit it? This was the same trick that the Fulani North attempted to play on the SS-that the multi-national oil firms own more oil blocks than them d Fulanis-No matter what, boko haram has killed the political ambition of buhari-ahead of d 2015 elections-its finished for the fulani North-their own greed 4 power led them to clone BH to murder 9jas and chase GEJ-Haba Malam! After the murder of Abiola! this again?

BOKO HARAM HAS ONLY KILLED MUSLIMS WHO ARE NOT TRUE MUSLIMS

JNI IS SHOWING THE WORLD THE LEVEL OF DECEIT, FALSEHOOD AND WICKEDNESS IN ISLAM. SINCE THE COMMENCEMENT OF THIS MADNESS CALLED BOKO HARAM, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE THEY COME OUT TO CONDEMN THE SENSELESS KILLINGS OF CHRISTIANS AND GENOCIDE IN CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES IN THE NORTH? BOKO HARAM HAS ONLY KILLED MUSLIMS BY ACCIDENT, MEN IN UNIFORM, OR THOSE WHO OPPOSE THEIR JIHAD PRETENDING THAT ISLAM WAS AGAINST ISLAMISATION OF NIGERIA BY FORCE(AS IF ISLAM CAME INTO NIGERIA VIA PEACEFUL PREACHINGS BY UTHMAN DANFODIO AND HIS CO-BANDITS). IF ISRAEL WOULD GO TO WAR OVER THE KILLING OF JUST TWO SOLDIERS, SHARIA NORTH WOULD HAVE SEEN THE FATHER OF ALL WARS FOR KILLING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF CHRISTIANS FROM THE BLESSED SOUTH IF WE HAD NOT BEEN BUNDLED INTO THIS UNHOLY MARRIAGE CALLED NIGERIA!

@ oko u must be a confused

@ oko u must be a confused lier. What BH is doing is not Islam but evil. And what u said isnt true. Go to countries practicing sharia law(Mecca, Qatar, Iran etc) and see d way they are enjoying. Olodo

DOCTRINAL PROBLEM

The secular Muslims, if there is any word like that, are arguing that the Boko Haram menace is a doctrinal issue between the Salafist (Boko HHaram) and the others.

The question that begs answer is why killing Christians? In a doctrinal issue that concern only Moslems?

The Moslems should borrow a leaf from the way Christians settle doctrinal issue. They use words and pen not swords and dagger!

This is the sultan of Boko Haram (sokoto) talking

This message was sponsored by the sultan and his blood sucking follower, they are trying their very best to make sure their lies work for them to collect money. Be warn you reap what you sow. But your lies will not change the facts on ground. Non muslim are the people being killed daily and everyone knows the truth except those sponsored by the sultan.

Freedom of speech is good but you do not have the freedom to brainwash people like you use to do with lies, lies and more lies.

 

Tundermash?

Very correct if seeking for peace is insanity,then i would need a medical attention.But between Tundermash who wishes the nation a continued calamity and Tafidan DDAJI who suggests to the nation a way out,who is worse?May Allah lead us out of the present socio-economic inadequacies,amin!

Na true, Islam is the glass house of sin and corruption

Look at all the nation practicing sharia and you will see, war, oppression and pure evil. Life does not have meaning to muslim and the islamic faith has shown a lot of weakness that they are lossing followers faster then any other faith.

Islam will slow die

Why Boko Haram targets President Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan became Boko Haram’s target for fighting to perpetuate northern emirs in office. Northern youths, through Boko Haram, are istead bent on bombing the Emirs for being useless.

President Jonathan has no business fighting to save the corrupt emirates. Victims of northern emirates’ misrule deserve their freedom. They have the fundamental right to replace the emirates with civilized government based on rules, not on the divine rights of emirs.

Any traditional system of government that promotes mass poverty and illiteracy is evil. The northern emirates promote both. The emirates do not deserve the protection of the Nigerian Army.

After 209 years the northern Fulani emirs have failed the people. An emir draws 4 million Naira from the Nigerian treasury but does nothing. Regarding Islam, the emirs abandon their spiritual duties to Chief Imams. The emirs hinder the progress of the good people of northern Nigeria. The emirs must go.

bling-bling Ayo Oritsejafor is just a PDP thug !

Aside making unintelligent comments on Boko Haram, has bling-bling PDP thug Ayo Oritsejafor done anything for CAN or Christians generally since he was made CAN President? The better the Boko Haram crisis lasted, the better for him to be in the news !
As per Dumbo, I hope his supporters realize now the man is simply lunatic; he does things without deep reasoning.

As per JNI's claim of Boko Haram killing more Muslims than Christians, we need statistics back up that silly claim. And does it mean atheists are not important in Nigeria ?

ok

See, it is not the fault of the Yoruba but of Our Obas/kings-that of Ife,Oyo,and some others.They sold their subjects' birthright to some unscrupulous elements...

What nonsense

What nonsense

A challenge to Boko Haram 1

There is one thing I like about Boko Haram. They say what they mean and mean what they say.

They are not like the hypocritical Northern Hausa-Fulani scavengers, the so called Northern Elders. The Northern Hausa-Fulani elders are the ones who instituted hypocritical and political Sharia in 12 northern states as a means of getting high positions and more national resources to themselves. They own 83 % of the oil blocks, ruled Nigeria for 40 years, monopolized the wealth of the country and yet continuously created an army of beggars in Northern states

They are right now trying to exploit BH for their own selfish interest. Boko Haram makes life easy for the rest of Nigeria and the International Community by always saying the truth about themselves and what they want. For that, I respect them and support the creation of an Islamic state for them.

A challenge to Boko Haram 2

One thing I ask of them is to go after those hypocrites who have used their name to enrich themselves and oppress the poor - the Sultans, the Dasukis, the Ciromas, the Yakasais, the Ango Abdullahis, the Yahaya Kwandes, Ibrahim Babangidas, the Yusuf Maitama-Sules, Idris Mohammeds, the Safiya Mohammed and all those hypocritical oligarchs. Go after them and their families and leave the Christians alone.

Blowing up unarmed innocent civilians doesn't really show you are powerful. Anybody can do that. But it takes a genuine fear of God to withhold from doing that. Your real enemies are those hypocrites. If you go after them, the whole world will support you.

Nigerians Median are biased about their news.

I think may be CAN president Mr Ayo want bokoharam to kill more Muslims,so that the number of Muslims in the North will reduced.Muslims are more affected than other religion.Muslims from the south cannot go to the North to purchase Islamic materials,i think that is why Cristian president is rejecting amnesty for bokoharam,so that Muslims from southern Nigerian will not have access to their brethren in North.

U ar d devil in dis case

Since u have no any factual evidence to proof ur rumour against d innocent muslims god will surely reveal ur plans nd anguish them in hell fire. Where were u when a christain leader nd later became a minister paid for the bailing of muh'd yusuf in the year 2005 when he was arrested be d police? If u ar not current then go back nd ask ur father who was current at that time.

@'BOKO HARAM' BY GBENGA

"LET'S ALL PRAY FOR PEACE-". That is exactly what every sensible Nigerian is doing. But the evil ones have chosen the path of war which only harvests death and destruction.
"THE BIBLE SAID 'ALL PEACEMAKERS ARE THE CHILDREN OF GOD-". The tragedy here is that there are some who consider it sacrilege for anyone to say that GOD has children. They tell you that GOD cannot marry. To them the issue of being peacemakers because, as GOD'S children, they are supposed to live in peace, does not arise. One party cannot make peace while the other side shuns it. Every body must move in the same direction for peace to abound.
"SO LET OUR LEADERS MOVE IN THE DIRECTION OF PEACE". The leadership of the country has done that by making the much detested amnesty overture to boko haram which has reciprocated by showing its disdain for peace in its rejection of the offer. Your advice should be directed at boko haram which is the latest edition of islamocrazy.

The Chickens have come Home to Roost

After creating and commanding your Frankenstein monster to unleash terror on innocent Nigerians, especially Northern Nigerian Christians, you have the guts to make this dumb, irrelevant and fallacious statement.So what are you guys trying to prove?That the monster you created has killed more of your kind than its target "the enemy"?If this is even true, then let it send a clear message to you:you always reap what you sow.Our God has caused confusion among you and this is just the beginning, unless you all repent.

Change has come to Northern Nigeria!!!!!

In Nigeria there is nothing called northern unity. There's no natural love at all between the 100 plus ethnic groups in the north. That's why the murder of northerners by Boko Haram is continuous, indiscriminate and massive.

What northern Nigerians stupidly call northern unity is elite stuggle to control of the federal purse for themselves as the elite. They then use a little of the oil money they steal as dash and jara to the teeming northern masses, but preserving the bulk of the loot for Muslims amongst them, whilst intentionally excluding Christian northerners. What kind of unity is that?

But now, with Jonathan as Nigeria's President, and with the prodigal "northern big men" now powerless for lacking access to federal purse to spend at will, the northern masses have clearly seen the true colours of their so-called northern leaders and revolted in massive anger.

Thank God for Boko Haram. The North will never be the same again.

The Fulani Emirates facing internal revolts

For the first time since 1804 there is an armed struggle by northern Muslims to overthrow their own traditional emirates system of government.

Amnesty cannot stop such a revolutionary movement.

Once a critical mass of northerners now feel ready to become suicide bombers just to get rid of the emirates system, it means a new and different northern Nigeria is about to be born.

What we're witnessing now is the pain of its birth.

Our collective hope should be for a more moral, peaceful, enlightened, just and fair system to replace the emirates so as to free the talakawa from poverty, illiteracy and beggary suffered by the majority poor people of northern Nigeria since 1804.
