Alleged Blasphemy: This Hypocrisy Must Stop

Read the full story of the female student, Deborah Samuel, beaten to death and burnt by an angry Muslim mob in Sokoto for alleged blasphemy here.

My Opinion

Allahu Akbar! - this statement is made by Muslims to show the majesty of God or to express that God is great when something happens. I feel Muslims should hold this name in high esteem and rebuke anyone that uses it to cause "terror" on a fellow human. Using the name Allahu Akbar to unleash mayhem should be seen as blasphemy.

This hypocrisy must stop.

We are guilty of blasphemy (both Christians and Muslims). We are all hypocrites. This is a call for us to see the truth in all religions and embrace them with peace.

How on earth will the life of a fellow human be the price paid for blasphemy against one's belief/faith?

How long shall all these barbaric, culturally and politically oriented blasphemy laws continue to take their toll on our supposed peaceful unison society?

How do we justify that one has truly blaspheme against other beliefs where in reality the accuser is the real victim of blasphemy?

In a contemporary multicultural and diverse religious nation like Nigeria, where the two dominant religious groups (Christianity and Islam) grossly blaspheme the faith of the minorities. They do it with pride and they see other minority religions as nothing to respect or honor?

A devoted Muslim prays 5 times daily, while a devoted Christian prays and fasts as he wills daily. In the prayers of these two beliefs, there is one thing in common, they all pray against a common enemy "Satan/Shaytan/Esu Odara". They see him as a common enemy and forget to respect the fact that this is the true deity of some minorities. The so-called common enemies are what some believers worship in so-called societies like the USA (where there is the Church of Satan). The same deity is being worshipped in Nigeria as Esu Odara. The undeniable fact remains that if " Satan/Shaytan/Esu odara" is as evil as we thought, then no society would have legalized him as a religion for the minority in any sane system.

It's so pathetic to see Muslims cursing/praying against Shaytan in their five daily prayers. It's so unfortunate to see Christians using 2/3 of their worship time to fire "Satan", some denominations are even known for firing satan using the whole 100% time of their worship. They pray for thunder to strike their common enemy, "Satan". They engage in all manners of blasphemy against this so-called deity (the supreme being of other religions), yet for once and to date they haven't been able to conquer this deity. What a mystery!

The irony of all is that the true believers of the so-called enemy (Shaytan/Satan/Esu Odara) have never for once blaspheme against the supreme being of other religions in their worship. They only praise, worship, and perform all kinds of atonement and sacrifices whenever they gather to their deity.

It will only be fair enough if the blasphemy law that largely protects the two major religious groups could also give same power to the esu/satan/shaytan as a legal religion that needs protection against blasphemy. We see the esu/satan/shaytan worshippers ad those that should be wiped out based on their faith while the major perpetrators of evil (Christians and Muslims) are glorified for their rot and havoc. Isn't that funny.

Actions taken in the name of religion have done more harm than good. The best we can do is to practice the truths in all religions (omnism).

Omnism is the recognition of all religions.

In itself, omnisim is not a religion, it is a sense of spirituality. To put it in perspective, it believes that all religions matter and have a meaning for their existence. One main belief is that everything created in this world is important.

People should learn to be more accepting, and tolerant of other groups - religious or ethnic.

We share the world, let’s share the love.

Beliefs are spiritual values of individuals and do not require exploitation or manipulation by others. Everyone is respectful of each other's beliefs unless there are provocations.

Do you believe this?

Even if there are provocations, violence isn't the best resolve.

Why should I use a sentence that I don't believe in? And besides, I didn't make a sentence to justify violence. Provocations consist of unnecessary extreme rhetoric that brings the masses to the gala.

Well, believing it doesn't make it true. In reality, everyone is not respectful of each other's beliefs... This may be true for you but the same can not be said about the next man.

And besides, I didn't make a sentence to justify violence.

And I didn't make any that said you did.

Hey friend, let's not take this amiss...I get your perspective. I'm only pointing out that "everyone does NOT respect..." Have a lovely day.

This is so sad. The same people that have been plagued by killings and kidnappings by bandits have now resorted to killing themselves in the name of religion.

Then protests and destruction of properties in demand for the release of arrested murderers. So pathetic.

Love is the only thing lacking in the world, it is so sad to see the girl lose her life for what?

Almighty Allah will not be happy seeing us slaying ourselves in the name of defending our religion, we can handle things differently. The deed is done, I pray that God forgives us all our sins.

We must understand that we all serve one God, the creator of heaven and earth.

Wish there will be such a world. This worries me - there is no remorse, and many fanatics (including imams) support the evil act and even threatened anyone who spoke against the barbaric act. Religion is the refugee of the scoundrel.
