Shi’ites worldwide yearly marked the 10th day of the Muslim new year as the festival of Ashura, an event that defines Shi’ism and its rift with Sunni Islam. The festival is used to commemorate the slaying of Prophet Mohammad’s grandson Hussein at the battle of Kerbala in 680. AD.

      You see why I challenged you last week that you should mind what you say about Nigerians since u are not one of us. This your comment just prove me right. Sit yourself down and re-read your comment again, then you will know you don’t *****. Oh, I really wish everyone*****n. The fact still remains that Nigeria is far better than Zambia, despite the terror that is going on. I bet you will trade Nigeria for your country if the opportunity is give to you. I so much**** of your comments lately. Really wish I could see you ********************

    Since we now have two types of muslem in Nigeria, one practices western education, the other one rejected it, ok if at all they finally get their arewa republic how are they going to stay together? Maybe they will stay like iran and irak.

    why can’t you all think reasonably?!
    These people are not true in their mission. If they are really, truly, honestly fighting for their religion, why do they need to cover their faces, hands, legs, torsos, skin and all the rest?! They should be bold and carry out their mission to the world to see without fear. These mecessaries are just political thugs that have been paid handsomely to carry out missions that they themselves do not believe in. A right dose of cocaine, marijuana, speed, methamphetamine, and the rest of ’em all will make them do anything. I know of some Muslims that are totally in opposition of what these mercenaries are practising. If they read their Koran very well and plead for God’s divine guidance in understanding His words they will all be humble. But poverty have taking their sense of reasoning, PERIOD!!!!!!!! The funny thing about it all is that in Nigeria, boko haram are all made up of hausas, fulanis, kanuris, yorubas, Igbos, igalas, jukuns, etc. let’s all wait and see what the post elections of 2015 in Nigeria have to offer.
    My regret is Nigerians, like myself are a bunch of nuisance that deserves not a great country like Nigeria. ******* are selfish, self centered, indisciplined, loud and nasty, lack decorum, lack etiquette, lack patience, think they are all that, Nigeria is blessed and craves for worthwhile individuals that will build, groom and thrust Nigeria to a greater height than the ‘almighty’ U. S of A. Even though the ‘almighty’ U.S. of A. have come a very very long way to make them what they are today. Credit MUST go out to them because they paid the price to become a great nation. I am a Nigerian and despite all, l love my country. I am waiting for all the abuses that won’t change the truth!!!
