Boko Haram News Update in Nigeria
Nigerian Army Should Hire Imams, Islamic Clerics To Defeat Boko Haram With Jihad War – Sheik Gumi
Islamic Clerics Ready To Wage Holy Jihad War Against Boko Haram – Sheik Gumi Tells Nigerian Military
A popular Islamic cleric based in Kaduna has urged the Nigerian military to hire willing Islamic clerics to combat Boko Haram the proper way.
In a chat with Daily Trust yesterday, the cleric said if the Military can establish a Muslims legions within the Nigerian military to combat Boko Haram, the insurgence will be defeated.
He said Boko Haram can never be defeated without the use of Islamic war principles.
Here are some suggestions the right-wing Islamic scholar put forward yesterday in a chat with Daily Trust:
“Some of our gallant officers and men move into the theatre of war under the influence of substances.
“This is why immediately Boko Haram insurgents chant Allahu Akbar (Allah is Great); some of our soldiers would throw away their weapons and took to their heels. But if we have exclusively Muslims legions under the leadership of Imams, they will fight the war as Jihad.
“They will follow the principles of holy war and this insurgency would come to an end insha Allah. If Boko Haram chants Allahu Akbar, our soldiers, who know that they are fighting a holy war, would also chant Allahu Akbar and fight to the end.
“I think we should try this experiment so that this insurgency would be brought to an end. The turn of events in this Boko Haram war always amazes me. The way things are going can confuse any decent mind. Therefore, we must apply religious principles to fight this war.”

If you believe that your prayers are working, why isn’t Nigeria one of the best, safest countries in the world? Rather, a survey released last year named Nigeria as one of the 5 most dangerous countries to live, alongside Colombia and the rest. Imams, Muslim clerics and Pastors or whatever have no business in the military. What has “Allah Wakbur” got to do with fighting terrorism? You need to address the fact that Islam is the only violent religion in the world today, and preach to your followers in mosques that religion is not by force. Preach tolerance and educate Muslims that God, Allah as you call him, is able and capable to fight his battles. After all, does he not determine who wakes up and who doesn’t when we sleep? Keep religion out of our military and don’t infiltrate or pollute our country’s defense mechanism with religion. If religion was the answer, Nigeria would be a role model for the world to emulate today.

So saying God is great(Allahu akbar) will defeat boko haram by Muslims imams etc. Why then most of these religious wars fought in Yemen, Syria, Somalia etc are not end by simply uttering this magic word. At times these religious leaders truly believe that whatever they preach is instantly believed by the downtrodden masses. Just like a commentator above me stated, Allah or God does not need human beings to fight for him. He can do that if he choses to. These religious leaders should stop deceiving us while feeding fat on our ignorance. Ignorance that we ourselves inflict on ourselves.
