March 25, 2013 – Wole Soyinka Blasts Boko Haram Terrorists “You Lack Real Knowledge Of Islam”

Professor Wole Soyinka blasts Boko Haram terrorists while speaking during the opening ceremony of 2013’s Rivers state education summit in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

Below is what Wole Soyinka said;

“Boko Haram are not educated enough about their religion to know that some of the greatest philosophers came from the religion. They have been taught one track line (Monorail) about the religion. They need to be re educated about the religion”, he said.

    Hmmmm! Mr wole soyinka. And i quote: 1stly sir; education shouldnt be a barrier here sir. 2ndly: it is obvious that we all know the cause of the alarm but we are not ready to tackle it.3rdly: this people are not educate like you said, but they understand all it takes to destroy lives and produce some dangerous weapon,educated people can create. 4th: they are in love or may i say very deep in their religion. In that after killing they serve allah. 5th: they are not educated but they want to turn the whole country or may i said some state into Islamic country. Sir, it will be an honor if you look into these conclusion ahead from the 1st to 5th. The scripture will surely come to pass. I am not amaze seeing things occuring;it is a signs of end time according to Mark 13vs7. To all the victims God will be with you all. Never relent please continue in your service. Serve God with all your might and always know that heaven better than here. Jesu ni Oluwa

      Please always ensure to read things thoroughly before commenting. The prof said they lack knowledge of Islam, in other words, their religion. Thank you.

      U6me2, is that what u have in mind, please try and release, expose and express the remaining from your mind, bcos it isn’t. As prof. highlighted please do justice to yourself go have a true knowledge of ISLAM, SALAM & MUSLIM ok.

      U6me2. Don’t be among those examples about your religion. You don’t know anything about islam. The world islam himself means peace so pls don’t judge what you don’t know, and lastly let me ask you? Those armed-rubbers that are caught and claimed to be Christians, is that what Christianity taught them?

    Soyinka has hit the point. This fanatic lack the true knowledge of islam. The prophet preached peace,but they’boko haram’ detest peace. May Allah, the merciful whom you claim you fight reward you and your sponsors

    its somehow heard to believe.and moreover are you saying boko harams are muslim or muslims are boko haram.coz i dont think this boko haram issue has to do with religion.

    Wit due respect, Prof, ur implying dat Islam aint about violence & subduing pple by 4s is either a show of ignorance or willful prevarication. Read their quran and knw dat those B-H guys are actually doing wat it says.
    Again, its God who brought u2 whateva height of prestige u njoy 2day. Making dust-filled intelectualized comments about gay marriage just 2 keep in sinc wit d enlightened thinker dat d west sees u as only makes u a mere comformist, &4da proves dat human wisdom is but shallow n meaningless. Honour God, 4dat wud do u gud!

      A very learned and intelligent person had spoken well. Why did you have to spoil it with your Ignorance ?The God of all not “their God” to start with. The quaran is way of life, as well as narration of events that happened during the time of Mohammed can be found in it, so please do not go saying things of which you don’t have a full understanding. God will forgive you. He knows best!

    Wole Soyinka is not wrong. If they knew the peace Islam advocates, then they would not cherish blood-bath.

    Surly, Islam has been misinterpreted deliberately by most Christians, but we thank Allah some of them like the prof have started to revert back to the truth.
