When a terrorist commits a crime against humanity, people tends not to seek for answers from an aggressor but from the whole Muslim community. This is so wrong!

We have to agree that most terrorists are affiliated to Islam but not all Muslims are terrorists. The Quran teachings forbid killings and this is why Islam is widely known as a religion of peace.

For many years, Christians and Muslims is in Kenya have shared a lot in terms of livelihood and commitments towards national peace.  But it so happens that now that al-shabaab terrorists have been targeting Kenyans, there are those who think negatively about the whole Muslim community…

Who hasn’t been affected by terrorism in Kenya?

By now, there is fear that some local people are assisting terrorists in Kenya. Amazingly, some people are quick to point a finger at Muslims because they believe that non-Muslims will not be willing to do this. However, in 2008 just after the bombing of an American Embassy in Nairobi CBD, notorious criminals were mentioned as to have engineered the whole process until the last-minute.

Another incident of terror that some local criminals were mentioned was on Westgate Shopping Mall, where the police report said that some most wanted persons helped al-shabaab terrorists in currying out that heinous crime.

In Short, terrorists are just criminals elements in the society that masquerade like religious men and women but if you take out religion from them, then you will only see a notorious criminal who doe not value life or humanity.

In countries where Muslims are the majority, terrorism activities do happen. This informs us that the people who are playing with our mind should not be called Muslims… How could  you kill your brother or sister and claim that the same religious book that they practice drove them to do exactly that?

Victimization of Muslims because of terrorism activities worldwide is not the right way in fighting the war against terror.

Kenyans Urged To Be on The Lookout This Festive Season

The Inspector General (I.G) has cautioned Kenyans to be on the lookout for any suspicious persons or any luggage of questionable contents during this festive season. He went on and said that the Al-shabab is disintegrating due to continued pressure that the gang is experiencing from the military personnel that is Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) with an aim of curbing its operations in this region completely.

The IG also said that the Alshabab militants are either moving to join ISIS or the Al-qaeda whichever one prefers to be good for him. He further added any Kenyan who comes across that may seem alarmingly a threat should very fast contact the relevant authorities. He also said that the Al-shabab has always been a threat and so we should take the necessary precautions this festive season. He also urged Kenyans to keep their cards open for the sake of their security.

The threat is real and so let Kenyans do the partying at the same time they ought to take note of the IG’s words. Just a few days ago, we awoke to the shocking news of a bus that was attacked by the Al-shabab but thanks to the Muslim passengers who halted the ill actions of the gang after they refused to be separated from their Christian counterparts. But then let the government beef up more security to the terror prone region now that there is some intelligence reports of impeding attacks.

Then something else, hope there will be swift response by the police in case of anything of concern from the general public. Let us ashame these actors of doom, they cannot succeed to exercise their shadows of darkness over us. They hide in the Islam religion and oh! Unto them because from their heinous deeds; they are not entitled to associate with any religion.

So I hope as Kenyans will be saturated with the partying mood, they ought to take these sentiments seriously for the sake of their safety.

Somalia Government Bans Public Christmas Celebrations

Somalia government bans public Christmas celebrations in the country. It has given a directive to the security forces to apprehend anyone who infringes with this simple but stern directive. The only place where Christian celebrations should be held is in private places—at home but not in hotels or in any organized gathering.

The government said that these celebrations go contrary to Muslim faith and that to make sure that Islam is not disrupted; they had to come up measures for that reason alone.

Foreigners staying in Somalia will not be allowed to mark this day freely unless they are away for locals and they do it quietly.

Christians in Somalia are not yet free hold public gatherings as this might cause security challenges as they would be the target for Islamists roaming freely in the country.

Somalia is a Muslim country and the authority is forced to by the laws of the nations to guard Muslim faith in every means possible. One reason being to impress the citizens, if not to allow Jihadists to win the people over such festivities, banned under Islamic teachings.

Understanding the problems in Somalia is something that foreigners, especially those in holiday in this newly building up country, should live with. For this reason, Christians should not be offended by this move.

In recent years, Somalia has been battling against jihadists in the capital, Mogadishu. Hotels have been the most targeted facilities and fatalities reported. al-Shabaab terror group claimed responsibility for those heinous crimes. The Islamists blamed the government of Somalia for working closely with Christians.

Somalia is currently the only country in Africa runs under a religious belief. In other countries where Muslims form the highest percentage in their population, the counties have adapted non religious stands to allow other people to enjoy being part of the larger society.

How Youths Were Cheated Into Joining ISIL

When the terror beast ISIS, nowadays re-branded as ISIL, was taking over the two affected countries by storm, youths thought it was a new revolution that has come to in time. The terror group was like a camouflaged reality social group that was there to transform the whole world into a Kingdom, under one leader.

Yes! Media played a major role in youth radicalization. The reports about ISIL’s wealth, the military hardware and tech part encouraged youths to fight being part of this. In one way or another, the terrorists set the ball rolling, however, the world media took it from there for those interested.

In their young minds, many of them traveled to Syria and Iraq to be part of the new revolution. Barely did they get facts right that terrorism is not the same as conquest. Sad that once you are in, there is no way out— it is a matter of life and death.

Reports started emerging that some foreigners who are fighting under ISIL face major challenge from the locals. It is certain that the terror group recruited the willing bodies to die for the course that they hardly knew about.

For women foreign fighters, they are constantly under watch by the veterans. And in most cases, anyone who shows signs of weakness is cut off from the large group and killed.

It has also been noted that the majority of ISIL fighters on the front line are foreigners. This is one way of eliminating weaker sections that might lead to the group’s downfall.

Youths who are now major part of ISIL operations regret leaving good life behind as they sought for an adventure that disconnected them from the larger society.

The main vision for this multi billion terrorism group was first hidden from the larger affiliates; it seems that only a few individuals knew the motive of its formation. The unfortunate youths who joined this group blindly are dying for the course they barely knew about.

Kenyan Atheists Target Religious Studies In Schools

The Atheists belong to an organization that does not believe that there is a God. So the chairman of this organization who is the overseer of its activities revealed that he has written to the Education Cabinet Secretary calling for the scrapping of the Christian Religious Education (CRE) and Islamic Religious Education (IRE) from the education syllabus. He further pointed out that teaching such subjects was a waste of time and so the energies should be directed elsewhere.

He said that such religious education should be left to the respective religious leaders to decide how they will educate the children. Those in the organization felt that religious education encompassed certain myths or beliefs dating back to about 2000 years thus making everything about it irrelevant. He instead said the religious education should be replaced by issues relating to development and science citing that Article 6 of the constitution should come in handy here. He also said that Article 32 of the constitution which constitutes the Bill of Rights should also be included as it provides a framework of values.

But such sentiments were not taken lightly by the religious leaders who felt that such people have no respect to the faithful since they do not believe in God but are trying to pass on their bad influence to others.

They further said that they have no right to demand scrapping of religious education in schools and this was surely a violation of rights to the religious people since not all children have an opportunity to have a place for taking religious lessons.

The religious leaders further added that following such people would Land a country in danger and being well-behaved in school would be a thing of the past by school children. They also said that this was not freedom of worship or speech but irresponsible use of the media to pass a careless point.
