Saudi-Bought Kaduna State Governor Rejects Nigerian High Court Ruling, Calls For Zakzaky’s Prosecution

by Jonathan Azaziah

Goddamn the Buhari regime to the hellfire. As expected, and despite the ruling of the Federal High Court of Nigeria in Abuja which ruled that Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky is to be released immediately along with his wife and compensated with funds and a new home for his unlawful imprisonment, the Kaduna State government led by Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai, an ally of Muhammadu Buhari, has ignored the decision and called for the Sheikh and the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) to be prosecuted for “lawlessness” and, astonishingly, “allegiance to a foreign power”. It is not a coincidence that Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai is the same scoundrel who banned Shi’a Islam in Kaduna State, getting the sectarian ball rolling in five other Nigerian regions. It is also no coincidence that this blatant disregard for the law comes in the same week that the murderous, baby-killing, Takfirism-spreading Saudi Kingdom of Darkness sentenced 15 people, mostly Shi’a, to death on baseless charges of “spying for Iran”. Indeed, in states bankrolled by Riyadh’s petrodollars, “foreign power” is a code phrase exclusively reserved for the Islamic Republic of Iran. And make no mistake, this move by el-Rufai is not coming from his person, nor even Buhari, but the devilish Saudi tyrants who are seeking more bloodshed just days before the one-year anniversary of the Zaria Massacre.

“Silence On The Sheikh” Drops Just One Week From Today!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

Only seven days away from the one-year anniversary of the Zaria Massacre and the illegal, unjustifiable imprisonment of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky of Nigeria. “Silence On The Sheikh”, the song that I, Iron Galaxy, Yusuf Abdul-Mateen Trombly, Rafiqi Green and Khanverse KV put together, is, in the simplest terms I can muster, SOMETHING NOT OF THIS WORLD. If I say anything more than that, it will take away from its prestige. For real. Just wait ’till y’all hear it. And when you do, make sure to spread it far and wide and let it be a weapon we use to pressure the US-Zionist-Saudi-backed Buhari regime into releasing Sheikh Zakzaky, his wife Sayyeda Zeenat and the rest of the IMN (Islamic Movement of Nigeria) political prisoners IMMEDIATELY. In the mean time, change your profile picture to this beautiful poster to raise awareness about the plight of the Sheikh and Nigeria’s Shi’a as well as to heighten anticipation for “Silence On The Sheikh”–the final single off “Eternally Husseini” and an anthem of anthems! Resident genius graphic artist extraordinaire Mohammad Hamza on the gorgeous artwork if you ain’t know. It was the highest of high honors working with all you gentlemen on this special track and in the name of this special cause, i.e. Islamic unity. I’m humbled beyond words by your brotherhood, commitment, bravery and artistic/musical/lyrical brilliance. And of course, I cannot wait to share our masterpiece with the world. #FreeZakzaky #LongLiveZakzaky #SilenceOnTheSheikh #EternallyHusseiniComingSoon

FINALLY! Nigeria’s Federal High Court Rules That Sheikh Zakzaky Be Released Immediately!

by Jonathan Azaziah

The oppressors cannot keep what is just and what is right silenced forever! In a shocking turn of events, the Abuja division of Nigeria’s Federal High Court has ordered that modern-day Shi’a Muslim saint Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky and his wife Sayyeda Zeenat be released from their prison cells IMMEDIATELY. The legal body also ruled that the Sheikh and his wife had their “rights to liberty breached”, that they were held “against their desires” in “unlawful custody”, that the Buhari regime has 45 days to provide Zakzaky and his better half with new accommodations because the brutal Nigerian army had destroyed their home in Zaria, and that the Nigerian security services would pay nearly $160,000.00 in compensation for the repression that the Sheikh endured. The glaring question of course is: WHERE THE HELL WAS THIS INTERVENTION FROM THE FEDERAL HIGH COURT in the days directly after the Zaria Massacre last December? And another: WHERE THE HELL WAS THIS INTERVENTION FROM THE FEDERAL HIGH COURT over these past 11 months as Sheikh Zakzaky was continuously tortured and denied proper medical care? Outrage aside however, this is an incredible development that should be wholeheartedly embraced. Continue reading FINALLY! Nigeria’s Federal High Court Rules That Sheikh Zakzaky Be Released Immediately!

Zaynab, 8 Months Old, Among The 100 Nigerian Shi’a Martyrs Of The Kano City Massacre

by Jonathan Azaziah

This precious baby is 8-month old Zaynab. She was murdered in a hail of gunfire on Monday by Nigerian security forces who savagely attacked peaceful Shi’a mourners in Kano City as they marched towards Zaria for Arbaeen. After the massacre of at least 100 unarmed members of Sheikh Zakzaky’s Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), including little Zaynab, the Buhari regime unleashed a propaganda blitz absurdly describing the martyred innocents as “armed and dangerous”. Someone please explain how an infant with a mere 2/3 of a year worth of life on this planet can fit such a description? How?! Muhammadu Buhari, his Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris and the rest of the corrupt Nigerian regime are all liars. Point blank period. This was a massacre and a crime of elephantine proportions. And it’s pointless to ask “where is the outrage?!” because Nigeria, especially its Shi’a citizens, is so disconnected from the periphery of mainstream press outlets that it might as well be in an undiscovered nebula cluster five trillion light years from the Milky Way. Between being African, Shi’a and having parents who are part of a true Anti-Zionist revolutionary movement, beautiful Zaynab never even had a shot of global coverage.

Six Nigerian States Have Effectively Banned Shi’a Islam: Ring The Alarm And Raise Your Voice Against This Injustice

by Jonathan Azaziah

I don’t think people fully comprehend just how horrific the plight of the Nigerian Shi’a really is. Last month (October 6th to be exact), Nasir Ahmad el-Rufai, the governor of Kaduna State–of which Zaria, the birthplace of Nigeria’s Shi’a community, is a major city–issued an order declaring the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), founded by unjustly imprisoned revolutionary Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, an “unlawful society whose activities are dangerous to the security and good governance of the state.” The order, using language identical to that of the murderous Zionist entity, referred to last December’s massacre of IMN members in Zaria, a killing spree tantamount to genocide, as “regrettable”. Membership in the IMN now carries a prison sentence of up to 7 years. And, to make matters worse, the ban has already become law in six other Nigerian states. Look at the carefully chosen, utterly malicious language that Buhari’s lackey uses – not group, organization or movement, but “society”. Why? I’ll tell you!

And It Gets More Heinous Still: Shi’a Massacred Again Today By The US-Saudi-Zionist-Backed Nigerian Army

by Jonathan Azaziah

Another bloody, heartbreaking massacre in Nigeria today. Over 100 Nigerian Shi’a of the IMN (Islamic Movement of Nigeria), including women and children, were savagely murdered and hundreds more were badly wounded when the Buhari regime’s army opened fire with tear gas and live ammo from three different directions on a peaceful procession as demonstrators were marching from Kano City to Zaria for Arbaeen, the end of the 40-day mourning period for Imam Hussein (A.S.) And it gets more heinous still. The criminal thugs of the Nigerian army also took a tactic right from the ‘Israelis’ who trained them, planting weapons on the unarmed Shi’a that they brutally killed and then reporting to mainstream media that there were “clashes”. But anyone who knows even the tiniest bit of information about the IMN knows that in its four decades of existence, it has never once carried even a single bullet, let alone stockpiles of weapons. It is entirely peaceful, just like the Islamic Revolution of Ayatollah Sayyed Ruhollah Khomeini (R.A.) that the IMN is modeled after.

“Silence On The Sheikh” and “Long Live Syria III”, Next Singles Off “Eternally Husseini”, Coming Soon!

by Jonathan “Madd Cold” Azaziah

With the imprisonment of Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky now entering its 11th month, the world at large primarily remains nowhere to be found on his plight and the cause to find justice for the Zaria Massacre victims. And this theme, SILENCE, whether from “The Ummah”, the “Palestine Solidarity Movement”, the “social justice activists”, the “Anti-Imperialists”, the African-American political “elites”, the “White Savior” liberals, the “Pro-Black” Jews and others, has been featured prominently in my own radio programs and writings since the criminal attacks on the Nigerian Shi’a and their sanctuary, Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah, during December 12-14 last year. But there is only so much that commentaries and podcasts can do. Continue reading “Silence On The Sheikh” and “Long Live Syria III”, Next Singles Off “Eternally Husseini”, Coming Soon!

With The US Presidential Election Nearly Over, Never Forget What Zio-Killary Clinton Did To Libya

by Jonathan Azaziah

With the circus that is the US presidential election just about over, I look upon the hideous, lizard-like, psychopathy-filled face of Zio-Killary–a mug so ugly it makes the dying wish they were dead already and the living wish they were never born–and there are only six words that my brain seems to be able to process: “We came, we saw, he died.” This is what Secretary of State Succubus said after Muammar Qadhafi, the Pan-Africanist godfather of the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, was bombed by NATO and ruthlessly tortured, raped and murdered by Takfiri Libyan rebels on the Zionist-NATO-Saudi-Emirati-Qatari alliance’s payroll.

Now 10 Months Since Zaria Massacre And Arrest Of Zakzaky, Brutal Oppression Of Nigeria Shi’a Continues

by Jonathan Azaziah

Between December 12th and December 14th of 2015, the Nigerian army carried out one of the most barbaric atrocities in recent memory as it shot, bulldozed, beat and maimed hundreds (and possibly thousands) of Nigerian Shi’a to death at the Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah in Zaria. Thousands of others were wounded and at least 705 innocents on top of that have been disappeared. The slaughter concluded with Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, Africa’s most important revolutionary, being unjustly imprisoned alongside his wife and several of his companions. Fast forward 10 months later, and not only are the Sheikh and his dearest ones still imprisoned, still tortured and still in terrible health as a result of these aggressions, but the Nigerian army– an institution of oppression backed, armed, trained and financed by the American regime, the usurping Zionist entity and the Saudi Kingdom of Darkness–is at it again, carrying out yet another massacre of Nigerian Shi’a as they were mourning for Imam Hussein (A.S.) At least 14 unarmed demonstrators, including several women, were shot dead at Ashoura processions in Funtua and Kaduna on Youm al-Ashoura.

Nine Months Since Zaria Massacre, We Ask: Where Are The 50 Nigerian Shi’a Women Abducted By Buhari’s Army?

by Jonathan Azaziah

Nine months! Nine months now! A brutal nine months have passed since the tyrannical Buhari regime carried out the inhuman Zaria Massacre and unjustly locked up Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky, the saintly and knightly founder and leader of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), for no other “crime” than being a revolutionary incapable of holding his tongue on injustices committed against the Palestinian, Syrian, Iraqi, Yemeni and Bahraini peoples by the US-‘Israeli’ Empire, and still the deafening, atrocious, infuriating silence from so-called “Muslim Solidarity” activists and “human rights” organizations persists. In light of this horrific indifference, it is time we raise our voices about perhaps the darkest aspect of this atrocity–as if the wanton slaughter of hundreds (possibly thousands) of Nigerian Shi’a and the Zionist-style bulldozing of the Husseiniyah Baqiyatullah weren’t dark enough–and shed beaming sunlight, moonlight and starlight upon its ugly head: The 50 young Nigerian Shi’a women abducted by Buhari’s cowardly, ‘Israeli’-trained, Saudi-funded, US-backed military. Where are these sisters and what the hell are the Nigerian regime’s goons doing to them?! We quiver at the mere thought.
