Sins of their brothers

*peeping*

**peeping**

***peeping***

You see why i love you people? I was actually expecting shoes to be hauled at me,but it's obvious you love me too much.You all are simply the best.Yes,i'd been lazy but i think that's in the past now.

I trust you've been good and awesome as i have been? Truth is,i'm a little more awesome and it's been like that for some time now.Why? Well,let's just say it because i know something very great is about to happen.My life is beautiful actually and i'm thankful to God who made it possible.

This year has been a very unpleasant one for us as a nation.We've suffered so many losses this year alone and it's not even stopping.Dana crash,This Day bombing,Church bombings in various parts,Jos crisis...the list goes on and on.It's just very annoying and painful and disheartening.The recent attack on defenseless women and children in Jos isn't making things easier.

I witnessed something on my way to work today and i felt really bad for our nation.An Hausa door-to-door water seller was mildly assaulted by people who just needed an excuse to retaliate the killings of 'their people'.I kept on hearing things like "You know wetin dem do our people for their side?" "You know wetin dem dey do our people for their side?".Then it occurred to me that the poor man was suffering for the sins of his brothers in the north.The recent attacks on Christians in communities in Jos is making it hard to believe there isn't an unspoken war against Christians.I am privileged to know that Islam isn't a faith of violence.However,many a wicked members of that faith aren't making people believe Islam is indeed not a violent faith.If something isn't done to stop this,i fear we'd have more serious cases than the one i mentioned above.Then there'd be killings and atrocities.

I'd like to use this medium to call on Muslims all over Nigeria to rise up and condemn the killings done in the name of their faith.I enjoin them to make their voices heard that Islam isn't a religion of violence but that of peace.If they fail to do this,it would get to the point where Christians would rise and take up arms against Muslims,and i wonder,then,what would become of us as a people.WE JUST WANT PEACE!!! May God help us!

  3. Every one keeps telling the Influential Islamic leaders in the north to condemn these violence publicly, but they have never done that. Doesn't make sense at all

    1. The reason why the northern leaders cannot condemn the violence might not be unconnected to fear.Many Islamic leaders have been targeted and killed by the violent miscreants.However,it still doesn't make complete sense even to me.

  4. Let there be peace in our hearts, peace in our homes, peace in the nation and in the world. We really need God to intervene before things get way out of hand.

  6. Nigeria! But will that solve the problem in the north in anyway? It'd rather aggravate it. May God help our nation, sincerely. You're right; if Muslims truly condemn the killings, they should be very outspoken about it and not quiet as it appears they have been and currently are.

  7. Word bro,Islam is not a bloody religion. We just have some ignorant fools fighting to go have 70 virgins,if only they would stop for a sec to realize that having just 1 here is worth that 70. Talk of religious brain wash..

  10. I'm a Christian but i still recognise Islam as a sister religion...i think we have done more than enough as a people and not enough also. How many of us prayed for our nation today? Not me! I'm afraid i forgot. So maybe-just maybe- we should be a little bit more dedicated to our Dear Country and speak Words of Faith to it Daily! We can make it a daily routin..''when i open my eyes after thanking God for living again,i will say God help Nigeria'' maybe these Words of prophesy said in Truth would make God's face to shine upon us. Enough about insulting of our politicians. The truth about them is that they always come and go but we the people? We suffer enmass...no matter how irresponsible they might be lets say God Bless Nigeria!
