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.”

Re: delusion

And who says you are not a messenger by killing innocent souls. In as much as you support this killings, you are accountable.

I was once a muslim but when

I was once a muslim but when I observed how Isreal has been dealing with all the muslim countries in the middle east, it occured to be that Mohammed must indeed be a fake human being who could not defend himself but will be looking onto his followers to defend him. I am not looking for a god that i will be fighting for with my blood, rather i want a powerful God that will protect me and that was why i converted to xtian.I will advise the readers to search internet for "SON OF HAMAS", one of the sons of a founder of hamas (the islamic devilish terrorist) who saw the light and now changed to xtian. Islam is a religion of fear and hatred and that is what the muslims understand. An average muslim is aggressive and violent.

Re:IGNORANT HYPOCRITES

@RAFINDADI,
U mean to tell us that even at your age, when someone abuses your Father or Mother you go about carrying sticks and cutlasses just for action sake. Fish brain. You must still be an immature baby...um no lizard.

THEY ARE FOLLOWING THEIR PROPHET

THIS SHOWS WHAT THE RELIGION IS MADE OF ...VIOLENCE AND VIOLENCE ... THERE IS NO PEACE BUT VIOLENCE, LOOK AT THE LOGO OF ISLAM YOU WILL SEE TWO FIGHTING SWORDS ... THATS VIOLENCE... THEY ARE FOLLOWING THEIR ROLE MODEL AND WITH THIS THEY ARE WORSHIPING MOHAMMED NOT GOD YET THEY SAY HE IS ONLY A PROPHET. THIS WILL NOT LAST I SEE TOTAL COLAPSE VERY SOON.. WATCHOUT.

barbaric people that should be left in the jungle

God Stroked a man dead for trying to help the Ark from falling, a good deed we will say today, but you cannot help God, He said if I were hungry you won't even know, as we can see only a dead god idol you fight for,like dagon the god of the philistine in gaza,that is the same god that has terrorize Israel from time past, thru his barbaric and blind followers who still do it till date.

islam is evil

Those who fight for god are fools

IGNORANT HYPOCRITES

I want to believe that those commentators condemning the actions of muslims for protesting against this blasphemous film are either blinded by selfishness or they are completely ignorant fools. If foe instance you insult their parents I believe they will not keep quiet, they must act. The feelings that we muslims have is even greater than that. We dont insult any religion or its followers, how can you expect us to keep quiet when our religion is insulted? We have to express our grivances as such.

The biggest insult to God is to kill

Why do people complaining about "insult" to their religion kill humans i.e. take lives created by God? Is taking human lives not a great insult to God? Help me understand.

How did I find myself in d same 'country' wit these Northern ppl

1914 Amalgamation remains the greatest mistake of the 20th century.

While I respect the right of anyone to protest for what one considers blasphemous to ones religion, it is utterly stupid to kill innocent people as has happened in Lybia over acts purportedly done by someone else probably not even a citizen of America. In Pakistan women, children and adults who are lucky that their heads were not chopped off, are in jails for one blasphemy allegation/incident or another. Almost any infraction in Islam has the penalty of death. That makes no sense. If Mohammed said so, then the fact that he heard from a god should be researched properly.

However, the people of the SS do not feel comfortable with bigots who loose their sense of reasoning at will especially on religious matters and therefore we do not want to continue to use our Oil wealth to feed such mindsets. LONG LIVE THE REPUBLIC OF THE SS & SE

Classical arabic

EVEN THE ARABS DO NOT REALLY UNDERSTAND THE ARABIC LANGUAGE OF THE QURAN, THEY SAY IT IS CLASSICAL ARABIC. GOD WANT TO MAKE HIMSELF KNOWN TO MANKIND THEN HE CHOSES TO USE A LANGUAGE THE PEOPLE DO NOT EASILY UNDERSTAND IS IT NOT FUNNY?
Pls google THE SON OF HAMAS OR MOSSAB YUSEF.

Rebels without a cause or

Rebels without a cause or Rent a mob free of charge. nobody has seen the video yet the protests go on and on. the only thing that can satisfy some muslims is the end of the world so they can go and meet allah and live in peace.

how about mass suicide so the rest of us can live in peace

u MUMU pass

Fool u.we r MUMU,but av duped probably d whole world.we can even sign ur president's sign for u.we don't practice religion foolishly

delusion

Its so pathetic dat most christains in this forum ridecule Allah and prophet Muhammad(pbuh) without ever looking @ how america n their cohorts have successfully rid them of the essence of christainty. Christains are no longer a problem to the devils(america), they already have u guys in their pocket. AS for we muslims we will never relent to allow this godless people to win us over. Islam is the true religion, Muhammad(pbuh)is the last msg n the greatest man dat hv eva walked the earth. So people keep hating muslims but remember that islam in the nearest future will brighting up the earth cus its from God n not man

nice 1 bro

ur on point ma broda! dats d big wahala we wud always continue 2 face!

As far as non mulsims know

As far as non muslims know, the only good arabs and muslims are the dead ones.Faroulk Mutllab who is serving Mohammed in the US cooler can confirm this.Osama bin Lade can also affirm this to Hausa and Fulani.

Useless baboons. Can't the

Useless baboons. Can't the prophet fight for himself? Revenge in the name of (fighting for) God to me sounds foolish and to a great extent blasphemous, as God does not require anyone to fight on his behalf. He is invinsible, seeath in secret and does not share His Glory. He rewards accordingly without error and has been consistent on this. These hypocretes involved in these follishness, should have their substandard brains properly xrayed for madness.

Islam and Mohammed: A Man-made Religion and Worship of Man?

I don't know how many people have read a novel by Dan Brown titled "The Da Vinci Code" or watched the film version? But it thoroughly insults Jesus Christs, the Christian Faithe and Chsristiandom. It denies that Mary was a virgin and that Christ was "married" to Apostle John the Beloved. But to my knowledge, apart fom a few official protests by the Vatican/Pope and statements made, no one threatened to kill the author or film makers. Xtians feel since thier God is all-knowing, all-powerful and all-present, HE is best suited and capable t find Dan Brown and 'deal' with him as HE sees fit. There is no fighting for someone you claim to be stronger than both you and the enemy. People shred the Holy Bible every day but Xtianity has survived. Muslim should re-read their Koran or investigate its historical origin.

No muslim hav right 2 insult

No muslim hav right 2 insult or ever insult jusus or any prophet of GOD ,them why some ple (Americans) insult prophet muhd? dis shows dat de r enemy of dis religion.

Enough of this mess!

Any religion d@ does not support peace n supports d death of innocent pple, is a dead religion. D protestants are angry @ America n her allies as they claim. So, y raise dust here in Nigeria? If the god dey serve is as powerful as they claim he is,y can't they let him fight for himself. Mohammed is a prophet,a messenger so how can he be blasphemed?.Does he need you 2 fight for him? You guys should think ur actions through. Most of d pple u guys intend 2 kill dis time,haven't even watched the movie b4. You pple should think for once like human beings with flesh and blood. If you are so angry @ america, there are obvious steps you can take. Apply 4 a visa,n find ur way there. Then u can vent your anger there. U guys hv destroyed enough in dis country. Allow ur victims n deir loved ones 2 count their losses n lick their wounds in peace.

we can fold our arms seeing this thng happening

how can a true muslim wait nd seeing this barbaric thngs happening without reacting.what our brother did is acording to the right we of islamic teachng,let me say it catagorically that our lives is nothing,we feel happy if our death come while we are strugle to depend the respect and dignity of our beloved,holy and role model prophet.

it is end time

Everybody sees what Muslims those openly and bad and devilish because what American does in the hiding to destroy the world is ever seen as civilizations rather America is rule by devilish occult like the free masonic. All the rules and regulations of dajah I. E the anti christ is pass onto the American leader to control the world and everybody is taking it as the best. I am a muslin and I believe in Jesus not as god but as prophet, I believe in his second coming but not to what all my Christians fellows believe. Any Muslim that does not believe in prophet Isa (ASW) and other prophets Of God but in America andher New world Order Is not a Muslim but devil itself quote me.

We say d dust shall never dwn.

are u for real?

So they have a right to behead you cos somebody u don't even know did a film t about a dead prophet and I pray they will one day behead u in protest cos its their right

Point of correction sir,

Point of correction sir, Allah is One! Nothing and no one is comparable to Him. Neither Prophet Muhammed(PBUH) or Jesus Christ (PBUH) could ever be referred to as God. No sane Muslim would refer to them as such. The Prophets of God are reverred and must be treated with utmost respect.

So so difficult

He said, 'Islam supersede any law of the land.' This is exactly my problem with sharia state of mind. You can't run a modern society with this kind of mentality. This is why Nigeria will never be a great country. The Negatives in that society overwhelmingly outweigh the positives. Ii is like trying to swim against the tide. So so difficult.

Religious tolerance

@ mutualfear..Allah is the creator of the universe..and everything in it. The one who gave you life and to whom you shall be returned. I denounce violence &the taking of innocent lives, as much as I detest provocation & oppression.
Muslims like Christians and Jews are entitled to their religious views. If a Muslim decides to dress decently it becomes a problem, yet you applaud scantily clad ladies! Well, FYI, Muslim men are not the only ones that keep beards..Jews, Christians in the middle east as well as people of some other religions or cultures. Islam is a peaceful religion if the world could let it's followers be. I'm not saying there are no bad eggs but hey, which group doesn't have it's share of evils?
The Norweigian terrorist wasn't a Muslim...bet you didn't know that or didn't hear about him cos his name isn't Abdul?
Religious tolerance! Religious tolerance!

sign to an end of all religion

the over alarming rate of religion intolerance will definitely bring an end to world religion organisations. For your information it is already on the table of the united nation security assembly to scrap and disband all religious groups on the premise that it has contributed to world insecurity, conflicts than to peace. Developments are already proving the proponents of this debate rights.... ITS JUST A MATTER OF TIME.
