What Boko Haram did is actually Haram (forbidden) in Islam. Shame on BH for kidnapping Nigerian girls.

Some really disturbing news reports have come from Nigeria regarding the alleged kidnappings of 200+ girls from Nigeria. If Boko Haram present themselves as an organization related to Islam then they should know that they have committed a big sin and injustice. They present themselves as so called Islamists or Jihadists but their actions are totally against the spirit of Islam and Jihad (struggle against evil). They have committed one of the worst crimes against humanity by kidnapping girls. May the worst wrath of Allah be on you.

Islam’s principles of justice are above prejudices of all kinds:

“O ye who believe! Be steadfast witnesses for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo! Allah is Informed of what ye do.” [Al-maeda ,8]

If you believe in Allah then you should know that Allah is the Rab of all human beings not just a particular group of people. As followers of Allah, protecting human rights of others is a duty and not a choice.

I strongly condemn these actions from Boko Haram and pray for the safe recovery of kidnapped girls.
