Muslims In Jos Protest Film On Prophet Mohammed

A group of Muslims in the troubled tin city of Jos, Plateau State, yesterday evening held a demonstration over an America-produced film that purportedly blasphemed Prophet Muhammad.

The protesters, who defied security agents, said they would rather die than to watch their Prophet insulted, and will submit only to the laws of Allah which, to them, are supreme to any other law.

The mostly youth and children protesters, who numbered almost 100 were led by one Malam Mansur Sani Adamu in the demonstration, which took place on Bauchi Road.  They carried placards condemning the United States, Israel, Denmark and Holland, accusing them of plotting against Islam and Muslims.  Before they dispersed, they chanted, “Allahuakubar, Allahuakubar, they have touched our Prophet....”

Malam Adamu said, “We are doing this to express our anger against enemies of Allah and Islam led by America and her allies like Israel, Denmark and Holland because they are plotting against Islam. These days they have also produced another depicting film; this is what is troubling us.

This denigration of Prophet Muhammad is very sad and we are against it. With this it is better that it is death that consumed us for our Prophet to be denigrated. All Muslims in the world should come out and protest and those who cannot should pray.”

According to our source, security agencies urged the protesters to disperse since they had not secured permission, to which leader of the demonstration responded, “If our Prophet is blasphemed we will not wait for any law, Islam supersede any laws of the country.”

Please Respect Each Other

The main question is that until when we do not learn to respect each other. We are in the century 21 and yet we have not learned it. Mohammad is such a holy man to the muslims that they do not even show his face in their pictures. Now, a man easilly has made a movie which poke fun at Mohammah!!! What reaction can now be expected? We should learn to respect each other opinions as the Big poeaople say in the history as Mohammad said about 1400 years before.

That is why any disrespect and devilish begins and ends wit them

No matter what they say or do, the name of our Prophet SAW will always be exalted. Whether they make cartoons or films depicting him in a negative way, his name will still be mention at least 5 times a day (in Adhan) all over d world. They will never stop making fun of our religion & our religion will EXCELL despite their efforts.

what is happening?

who are really the most bombed,killed,raped etc? It is the muslims who are bieng abused,killed,raped,robbered etc everyday in afghanistan,iraq,iran,pakistan etc. Americans are doing this against Islam, muslims acts are bieng projected as bad.
We christians worshp Idols,we rape,we smoke,we are the alcoholist,prostitutes,porn stars,mafians,homosexualist. Jux mention any bad act in ths world and u wil realise that no one does it beter than the christian. But all we see on tv everyday is insults on islam and u expect them to be quite?
ofcos no! Truely, we all knw that muslims are bieng abused in ths world and its time we give them their peace. May God forgve any1 who out of sheer ignorance insult Muhammad(Pbuh) or islam. Christian our bible teaches as to be fair so lets nt be bias.

Better be careful of your words

You are such peasant and ignorant,you dnt knw wt that man mean to us.he is our life,our light, we love him more than ourselves,more than our parents.you dnt have any idea who is he? Read the history and understand it,he may be died but he is a life,go back to mamy home,you dnt even knw who you are?

HOW LONG SHALL THE WORLD CONTINUE TO LIVE IN FEAR?

What a mess that every day you most hear one story or another about Muslims' attack in one country or the other.Shall we continue to live in fear? It's time we look inward of the root of the problems of Muslims. You can not pleased them, no amount of dialogy or peace mission can solved their problems. We must know the root of Muslim to know who operates them of their action.

Denigrating mohammed

My question is "Can mohamed defend himself without any human intervention? If the answer is "yes" then let him come & defend himself from the insult laid on him, let not rubbish ourselves on this platform, besides the film was made in America & not even in Africa.

VERY VERY SAD

To see modern day humans kill for a man that died over 600+ years ago and have since over decomposed to fossil or oil, being that he existed in the Middle East, is heart breaking. What a deceitful world of imaginary beliefs.

What has PDP DONE for ME LATELY? (3)

Sadly, some one 'world government agenda entity' or 'sadist idealogue' with a set agenda find it so easy to set us up and manipulate especially the uneducated; who are hungry, angry and cannot think objectively and rationally thereby becoming easy fodder for these manipulators.

It is wrong that anyone would insult and denigrate another religion or religious beliefs. The questions therefore are: Who is/are really behind this film? What is their immediate and long term motive/objective? Is total destruction of Nigeria(for its resources) part of their motive or is there a larger world agenda?

Their success in Nigeria can only be guaranteed if we allow ourselves to fall into their trap. We should rise above this prank and continue to focus inwards such as critically asking- What has PDP DONE for ME LATELY?

What has PDP DONE for me LATELY (2)

My personal take is that this 'crappy' film (some internet sites even think the actors were deceived and the original words removed and dubbed to generate potent Islamic reaction worldwide) was clobbered to rile the muslim world for a larger agenda.

People should think.

What kind man or woman would churn such crude and bigoted film? Is he a true Christian? Is he a Nigerian? Could he be a renegade muslim?

In Nigeria, Christians and muslims have lived together amicably for years until Ayatollah and IBB's singular act of joining OIC brought us to the point where our divisions have been deepened to take our minds away from the penury and political suppression that all but a few people barely cope with in attaining decent and respectable livelihood on a daily basis for their family. Tell me, with all the money Nigeria has generated in the last 30 years, is life good ANYWHERE in Nigeria for the ordinary Muslim or Christian?

What has PDP DONE for ME LATELY? (1)

A total review of all comments indicate that "religion" which should be a personal issue, has become our major preoccupation in Nigeria and lately in SR. I am appalled by the tone and Language used especially against Islam. Admittedly, the Northern Christians are being killed and their churches bombed by BH, if we live by the tenets of that religion and follow what Christ said on the cross, the appropriate response would have been 'Father forgive them for they know not what they are doing'! It is so very easy to get emotional and worked up about one's religious beliefs. Nigeria has been plundered for years by a select group of Nigerians and we cannot even protest about that.

Presently, PDP is wreaking havoc on our very being and a few Nigerians 'doped' with religious fanaticism and intolerant attitudes have conveniently forgotten that they need to 'live' before they can practice their religion.

IGNORANT,SAD FUKIN PRICKS

I wonder wat d fuck dis religion is all abt..u moslems av bin brainwashed to d extent dat,u fink if u get killed while cosin' violence,den,u'll make heaven...lwkmd...every damn thing abt dat SENSIBLE MOVIE is fukin correct!!if u want to die 4 moh'med,go hug transformer and stop disturbing our peace..all ur rantings shows hw JOBLESS MUSLIMS CAN BE...imagine,can Dangote eva join u in ur protests,,?NO...he's damn busy making sum cash...long live America,long live Israel,long live Christianity!!!

it doesn't make sense

they have made several movies insulting Jesus but did they see any christian protest?
Christians left it to their God and the end result was that most of the casts in the various movies died mysteriously. So please muslims in Nigeria and infact all over the world should not even start any rubbish! after all, you say your Allah is the almighty! then he needs not anyone to protest on his behalf.

Who ever insult our prophet....

We wl nt sit and c dis useless peoples insulting our prophet so every muslim should protest 2 show his anger long live plateu jos long life malam adamu and the producer of the film wl c wat wl happens very soon

Ignorance of d lost souls.<folowerz of paul>

A response to abusing comments against Prophat Muhammad (pbuh)

Those who killed out of emotion did a great sin, and though they did it in love of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), but it is still a sin to kill the innocent and it is against Islamic teachings.

Those who are abusing Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in this site showing the same ignorance, as those kill by ignorance.
Muslim’s don’t abuse Jesus or Moses!
Muslim don’t Burn Bible!
Then why every time Anti-Islamic filthy criminals abuses Islam?

islam is really a violent religion

They alwyz say islam is a peaceful religion,,bt all they do is 2 kill christians evrytim..i tink its time 4 all d christians in d world 2 com 2gether and fight.we ar more dan dem in number..lets declare war on dis fools..nd finish dem off.enuf is enuf

@'ABUSE ON OUR PROPHET, PEACE &BLESSING OF ALLAH BE UPON HIM'

"--MARK MY WORDS, YOU WILL NEVER COME ACROSS ANY MUSLIM SHOWERING INSULT ON ANY BELIEF OR SYMBOL OF ANY RELIGION OWING TO THE FACT THAT WE UNDERSTAND OUR RELIGION OF ISLAM WHICH IS ALL ENCOMPASSING AND IT TEACHES US GOOD MORALS AND UNDERSTANDING OF OTHER RELIGIONS WHICH INCLUDES BUT NOT LIMITED TO CHRISTIANITY AND JUDAISM". Dr. Josef Goebbels, Hitler's propaganda minister could not have done a better job. Pray, if u so respect other religions and their symbols, why do muslims find churches and synagogues so offensive that they(muslims) bomb them without let? How many churches and worshipers have not been destroyed in Nigeria alone by muslims with "GOOD MORALS AND UNDERSTANDING OF OTHER RELIGIONS-". Just as u are imploring those who abuse Islam to desist from doing so, also prevail on ur muslim brothers to stop their persecution of Christians. Respecting the sanctity of life is more than not insulting religious symbols.

Anti-Islam video

The anti-Islam video is condemnable in the strongest possible terms, but let all reactions to it be civilized.

@ 'I WAS ONCE A CHRISTIAN TOO' BY JASMEEN(YESMIN)

It is quite obvious that whatever u were sick of has left an indelible scare on ur senses. U claim that Christians spend half their time criticizing Islam and muslims. Where does this take place, in or outside the church? I have been a Christian all my life and have never heard Islam or muslims being the subject of a sermon or conversation in the church. There are more important things to talk about in the church. Why has the zamzam water which worked magic on u not being administered to the troops of lepers,the blind and the physically maimed who throng the streets everywhere? They too are muslims. U take pride in saying that muslims marry Christians without indicating that such marriage is restricted only to the women. If indeed Islam is what u claim it to be, why does it forbid its women marrying non-muslims? U conveniently avoid the hatred for non muslims which is the bedrock of Islam. That is typical muslim behaviour.

It is stupidity to fight for

It is stupidity to fight for any prophet of ALMIGHTY Allah who has the power to give and take life and u whom Allah gives life will now go kill innocent pipl . Nobody has d right to kill Even the person that did the film only ALMIGHTY Allah can. Infact if must fight for prophet Muhammed(saw) then u must do that on a daily basis because the Prophet (saw) is insulted everyday on 2go, facebook , in sch, skype , newspapers,Utube Twitter , etc . I tell only ALMIGHTY Allah can fight for his. If u kill any soul, u will miss heaven bcos u cant give life and d life u live is not urs.

Real Prophet

It is only a powerless and fake prophet that people fight for. Real prophet dont need anyone to fight for him. He exerts his vengeance on whoever he divinely considers as his enemy. Muslims should repent from fighting for Mohammed, if he cannot fight for himself,then he is fake.
