Regular peaceful activities by Muslims – the followers of The Religion of Peace.
Boko Haram, a Islamic terrorist organisation has kidnapped nearly 300 Christian girls and threaten to sell them if the Nigerian government won’t release terrorists.
Is there any other religious group in the world doing such peaceful activities.
A new video released by Islamic militant group Boko Haram purportedly shows some of the missing Nigerian schoolgirls who were kidnapped last month.
In the video obtained by AFP news agency on Monday, a number of girls are seen in an undisclosed rural location, wearing full-length veils and reciting prayers in Arabic.
Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said the girls won’t be freed until imprisoned Boko Haram fighters are released.
“I swear to almighty Allah you will not see them again until you release our people that you have captured,” the leader says in the 17-minute video, as he cradles an assault rifle.
He also claims that the girls shown in the clip — estimated to be about 130 — have been converted to Islam.
“These girls, these girls you occupy yourselves with…we have indeed liberated them. These girls have become Muslims,” Shekau says.
Two girls are seen questioned by an unseen man in the clip. “Why have you become a Muslim?” he asks.
“The reason why I became a Muslim is because the path we are on is not the right path,” she answers. “We should enter the right path so that Allah will be happy with us.”
The girl says she was converted from Christianity to Islam, and says her name has been changed to Halima.
Families of the abducted girls said most them are Christians.
The group, deemed a terrorist organization by the U.S. in 2013, abducted nearly 300 girls on April 15 from a school in the northeast town of Chibok. Fifty-three girls managed to escape, but 276 remain in captivity.
In a video released last week, the group, whose name means “Western education is sinful,” claimed responsibility for the abduction, and threatened to sell the girls, who they described as “slaves”
Boko Haram has been waging a brutal campaign in Nigeria’s mainly Muslim northern states since 2009, fighting to overthrow the government and establish an Islamic state.
