August 23, 2016 – Muslim Youths Kill 8 After Fellow Muslim Rescued Christian Student Accused Of Blasphemy Against Islam In Zamfara

All hell broke loose in Talata Mafara community in Zamfara yesterday after a Christian student of Abdu Gusau Polytechnic in Talata Mafara was accused of making blasphemous statement against Islam.

The boy was said to have been beaten to a pulp before a Muslim man simply identified as Tajudeen rescued him and took him to the hospital.

Enraged by Tajudeen’s act of compassion, a group of Muslim youths moved to his house and set it on fire, killing all its occupants.

A section of the polytechnic was also destroyed by the protesters.

Corpses of eight people were found in the house shortly after the fire was put out.

  1. My question to all our northern Muslims is that, is Islam truly a religious of peace? Why would any normal, rational, sensible, and reasonable human being fight for his or her gods? Even the Osun, Sango, and other traditional worshippers in the Southwest region never fight to defence their many gods. Someone may asked, why asking only the Muslims in the north? 99.999% of Igbos are either Catholic, Angelica or Pentecostal christians. The Yoruba Muslims are lover of peace, progress, and very tolerance people. As a Yoruba born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, I have lived peacefuly with Muslims without any religion war or tension. Infact, they never for once fight for Allah by killing their fellow human beings. They are highly educated, smart, progressive, peaceful, wonderful and very tolerance people. But the reserve is the case for our northern Muslim brothers. They are easily provocate by any expression of their religious belief by non-Muslim Nigerians. Why killing eight innocent people because one good Muslim called Tajudeen rescued one Christian student from these religion fanatic and bloodthirsty demon possessed people? Only a mad or insane man fight in defence of his god that you worship, if Allah is truly a powerful god, then call him to fight and defense himself against those that blasphemy his Quran and name. We christians serve God Almighty who Mighty in battle, and He instructs us that vengeance belongs to Him alone. To those good Muslims, this is not to disrespect or redicules Islam in anyway, but these crooks are tanishing the good name of Islam. Tolerance, peaceful coexistence, love, charity, Fairless, and forgiveness should be the core pillars of any peaceful religious. Shekenah!

  2. This religion is evil. They hate christian so much. The only good one that help christian, they killed all his families. Na wah

    • You are contradicting yourself joyful. you said the religion is evil and the only good one that helped. sister, we still have many good Muslims out there, i keep asking people, have u ever heard of religious fight in any other part of the country apart from the north? Those are the people that should be blamed and not we the innocent one. i coexist with other religion so do many other Muslims. even we Muslims are not even safe in the north, they call us outcast because we are not hausa Muslims, they burnt my in-laws house in the north and their cars some years back that they have to run for their lives back to kogi.

  3. MAY GOD COMFORT this moslem brother who was truly compassionate like the proverbial Good Samaritan! May it be to him like Rehab the Prostitute, who was saved in Jericho for protecting God’s people, while the rest of the city was reduced to rubbles!

    @OMOKEHINDE, YOURS IS a true observation. Yoruba Muslims are way different from Hausas. Hardly has it been heard that they went on a religious rampage, unlike their northern counterparts whose second nature is to maim, kill and destroy. This is why they regard Yoruba Moslems as second class religionists, for they have not whole-heartedly embraced the violent side of Islam.

  4. My question is, why would some group of cursed souls turn a religion of peace to pieces? why cant we leave in peace and harmony? May the souls of the departed rip.

  5. @omokehinde you’ve said it all i wonder if it the same Allah the yoruba Muslim and the hausa Serve cause it seems they do things in different way.. God help our Christian brethren over there.. i believe strongly that these set of people belong to the class of

  6. Hausa people in the Northern part of Nigeria are bloodthirsty idiots that derive pleasure in killing all in the name of Islam.
    Why will you kill someone all because of his good deed?Even went as far as burning down his house and killing the occupants?What wrong has he done to deserve all this?

    I am pleading with my fellow Christians to leave North and come back to East where you belong and enjoy peace to its fullest…LEAVE THE HAUSA’S THEY ARE BARBARIC.

  7. From all the acts of the moslems the world over, it is truly evidenced that `ISLAM IS A TRUE RELIGION OF PEACE` indeed!

  8. So sad after reading the stories,that’s were is school and I know the man who is trying to rescue the christian boy
    .am a practical Muslim as well but our understanding based on religious very far different…the man called tajudeen popularly known as a baba bello run a food business along side with the wife and children…the man isn’t violence type and he his a yoruba man hail from offa kwara state…I think he was trying to stop dos hausas from killing him dats why de later bounced back at him he was supporting the guy,and brought down all the man has work for in just a blink of an eye all in the name of religion….god will never forgive dos dat were involved in that act of burning down and killing of the innocent souls….islam is a religion of peace but some of our scholars with different interpretation bringing dis issue of not seeing ourself as one…to me am a free Muslim I don’t discriminate anybody all I believe is that only God can tell who belong to heaven and hell….my take

  9. AMANDA…! x 7) How many times did I call you? Call your brothers to order.

    Thank you @ Omokehinde and Metu for your insightful comments.

    It is only a dead god like that of the prophets of Baal in the days of Prophet Elijah that his worshippers fight for.
    The muslim god is a DEAD one. Powerless god and its not omnipresent like our God Jehovah El-shaddai. Its position is only at the rising Sun.
    Hence its worshippers fights for IT. The muslim god lacks knowledge hence ITS understanding (if any at all) is limited to Arabic language alone, but our God is Ominiscience.

    The Christian God is the only true God. He is the creator of Heaven and Earth and the whole Universe and everything in it. Who is like our God?

    Our God doesn‘t need the assistance of anybody to fight His battles. When He wiped the entire cities of Sodom and Gomorah bcos of their sins, He did not ask for the assistance of anybody, WHY? Bcos He is a living GOD not a DEAD one like the muslim god. Rubbish!
    THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER,

    Still strolling…

  10. I don’t understand this kind of people oo. Let’s live together as brothers and sisters – no way. Okay Let us separate and live as good neighbors – no way. So for how long is this going to continue. How long shall they kill our people while we stand aside and watch?

  11. Dis is not about religion anymore, we should now be looking at it like some people from the part of d country, that is the hausas, they are the ones who have decided to use d religion in a vile way,
    If we look at it very well, how many times av we heard d yoruba moslems behaving in such animalistic way.
    Its just quite unfortunate that they still av some good ones amongs them like dis man who decided to be human towards another human being but his family paid d deadly price.
    Hope the people responsible will be arrested.

  12. Religious fanatism..i don’t personally see any reason why persons fight for whim they worship..if who or what they worship is as strong as they claim they should fight it out..i heard the were discharged and acquitted..is dat what the constitution is about.. I wonder were this country is headed
