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.

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.
