    THIS Is a big shame on this man and all haters of Christians world wide.
    Sometimes I pause to wonder why some men really beats up their wives.
    Thesame woman you were head-over-heel in love with just few moments ago has suddenly turn out to be your punching bag, I mean, this is totally wrong.

    I donโ€˜t know maybe because Im still single but honestly, I donโ€˜t think I can ever raise my hands on my woman. Cross my heart.

    In thesame vein, you cannot beat my daughter or sister to death for any reason and expect me to leave you still breathing and blinking. NEVER!

    I take a stroll…

    ONE Of the problems I always have in a topic like this is to wish a departed muslim a REST in peace.

    The simple reason for this is that honestly, I donโ€˜t really know where their souls are going after death.
    Little wonder, even they themselves are not too sure of where they are going after this life.
    Definitely, not Heaven because Jesus ONLY is the way. (John14:6).

    Pls donโ€˜t get this twisted, I am in no way judging anyone here. But then, (if you know, you know).
    WISHING EVERYONE THE BEST OF THE SEASON.

    I take a stroll…

      You think you’re the owner of heaven right, I beat you Jesus will deny you because he never call himself God but you did. He never claimed to be God, and we believe in Jesus more than you because we read in the Quran about Jesus peace be with him and no Muslim is a Muslim if he doesn’t believe in Jesus peace be upon him. Read your Bible very well with understanding you may end up becoming a Muslim. Thanks

      Quran and HADITH teach about beating Muslims Wife, so therefore Quran and Hadith is the Inspiration behind what that Alfa did. If you have anything to blame for his actions, it was from Allah(quran) and Mohammed(Hadiths)

    If u want to fault d guy with his deed, I accept. He could be punished accordingly but never associate his deed with religion. Islam doesn’t permit killing, if u know u know.. How on earth will u refer Islam as a foreign religion? If u call Islam a foreign religion, what will u call CHRISTIANITY? Is it Nigerian religion? Always think before u talk…

    You can say whatever you wanted to say, let it be clear to you Islam is not the religion of violence but religion of peace.
    Islam did not in any situation give room for beating wife nor killing any soul.
    If you are saying that have we not heard about pastor killing also, recently pastor Alfa of sotitobire who kidnapped his member’s son for ritual at Akure, what he had done is not Islamic, don’t attribute it to religion.
    If you are talking about rejecting Christmas food, there are many Christians that didn’t eat muslim festival’s food also.
    What am saying is that don’t criticise anybody base on what he wants or dislike. There are individual difference
    Face your own palaver.
    Yoruba adage says ”bo se wa ni liki lo wa ni gbanja” I.e. as you see some irresponsible Muslims as well as there are many irresponsible Christian.
    I pray Allah guide you aright and let you realise the truth as truth and false as false.

    I donโ€™t see why a matter of domestic violence has to turn into a religious debate. There was no reason for him to beat his wife into pulp and that goes for all men. Men who beat their wives learn it from their fathers. You men out there, your children are watching you and will follow your patterns of behavior. Women should value themselves more than stay in violent relationships until they pay the ultimate price with their lives. Thereโ€™s no premeditation in that unfortunate incident. Uncontrollable anger often leads to excessive force that oftentimes results in murder. We should think about the consequences of our actions before we act, otherwise we may end up where we never intended. The husbandโ€™s life is also destroyed and will never be the same. May peace be upon her soul.

    Many Muslims are ignorant because they don’t read to understand their Books nor would those imams told them exact truth about scenes like this.

    Also The news paper doesn’t help matter.Mutiu is never an Islamic scholar. He is a Muslim.Calling him is fallacy of generalisation. Can we say all Christians are Pastor/Reverend?
