After the disconcerted and discomfiting failure of President Buhari-led government’s grand plot to kill the revered leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky and decimate or suppress the movement entirely, they have now resort to another weird rethink, which is bound to fail; that’s executing their barbaric plans of illegal bans and unwarranted arrests state-wise with connivance of state governors
so as to grease the wheels and make things ‘easier’ in their fatuous attempt of suppressing the Islamic Movement and the soaring worldwide Islamic awakening which is a great threat to New World Order, Global Imperialism, Zionism and Saudi-founded Wahabbism, the pseudo-sunni and offshoot of Sunni-Islam.
Kaduna State was chosen to test the efficacity of the newly-found method disguising as implementing recommendations of their ‘indictment commission’; for it being a strategic centre to the Islamic Movement in Nigeria plus the governor, is Nasir Ahmad El-rufai who is direct accomplice in perpetrating all massacres and persecution of members of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria and illegal demolition of their properties. On Friday October 7, 2016, expectedly the Kaduna state Governor, Nasir Ahmad el-Rufa’i issued out an order declaring the
Islamic Movement in Nigeria as an unlawful society, [in Kaduna state] with even a penalty of seven years in jail on who professes its
membership. He claimed the executive council of Kaduna state arrived at the decision based on the already discredited recommendations of
the Judicial Commission of Inquiry—nay Commission of Indictment—into the Zaria massacre carried out by the Army in Zaria last year’s December. However, as Elrufai and Wahabbi contractors behind him were celebrating in fool’s paradise on banning IMN they were greatly baffled and embarrassed for seeing the apt and intellectual response of IMN by its President of Media Forum Malam Ibrahim Musa.
This apposite response full of eloquence and responsibleness which didn’t enjoy wider publicity by Media Houses for fear of the unknown, nonetheless it reached El-rufai’s desk. It hit Kaduna state government hard and turned to be a dirty slap on El-rufai’s face to the extent the Kaduna state government claimed the statement is ‘widely publicized’. This makes El-rufai went berserk and transfer the aggression of illegal purported ban on Malam Ibrahim Musa.
Malam Ibrahim Musa (Who’s a President of the Media Forum of IMN NOT spokesman of Kaduna branch, as El-rufai ignorantly thought) has thus, become to them a pin in the neck, and they want him out of the equation. His befitting and apt responses that appeal to logic, sound conscience and human instinct of justice always prevail over their callous, preposterous and well-publicized decisions and statements. This draws the intellectuals and common people, Muslims and Christians, Sunnis and Shiites both in Nigeria and other countries with healthy conscience who are not members of the IMN nor share thought with it to increasingly show sympathy and speak up against the unconstitutional and reckless attitude of Nigerian government, Nasir El-rufai and their masters who are (temporarily) dancing to the tune of the world nourisher and financier of hatred and terrorism, the Saudi and Qatar official religion—Wahabbism.
In less than 24 hours after the announcement of the purported proscription of IMN in Kaduna state, the Governor of Katsina state Aminu Bello Masari followed suit.
Albeit he didn’t announce outright ban (which is still not overruled), the police commissioner gave out an order, signed by ASP Salisu
Abubakar Agaisa banning all ‘religious processions, rallies and public gatherings by any group of people in any guise across the state’. The
exact similar order followed in Kano the following day which further proved testing the newly-found method of breaking the suppression to states level for maximum efficacy.
The story is not much different in Jos, Plateau state, parts of Bauchi state, Suleja, Niger state where there are all cases of security agencies using cubs and sticks as well as tear gas, and injuring some before taking them into custody. This is because the grand plotters and government are fretting and grandstanding having failed to justify the continued detention of our leader Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky and having failed to show any rational basis for the whole attack, they are left with no option but to resort to absurdity and preposterousness. They’re doing all this to further impede release of our leader and pave way for chaos and effect subsequent state-terror act on our forthcoming Ashura procession and grand Yawm Arba’een; which the Nigerian government and their masters fear for its effect of awakening dead and impaired spirit of Islam and world oppression, while Wahabbists and Wahabbism fear it for its obvious effect in reviving true Islamic teaching according to holy household (as) and disentangling the lies and myth they—for centuries — fabricated to whitewash their king, and cover up his atrocities; the accursed Yazeed and his accursed father
Meanwhile in the unfolding truth, the Bala Lau-led Kaduna faction of JIBWIS has just commended their accomplice, Governor Nasir El-rufai on his Saqifa-styled effort of ‘finishing’ Shiite, which they were contracted to quell for over 3 decades, but failed woefully. This didn’t surprise us a bit, only further exposes the conspirators of massacre of our honourable brothers and sisters in December, 2015. We only pray for Allah to expose more of them. Already some sponsored clerics with their thugs and claques were heard saying they were working hand-in-hand with the state Governor to eliminate the rival Shiite sect which they can’t defeat with logic and intellect since their Wahabbism wasn’t based on reason and intellect rather on so-called ‘pious’ predecessors. This is also not surprising, for their brother, Abubakar Shekau, the immortal leader of ‘Ahlul Sunna Lid-da’awati wal Jihad’ also recently called on government to ban us which El-rufai religiously heed.
IMN REMAIN RESOLUTE.
Despite all these state-sponsored terror act and persecution, the IMN remain calm and unyielding as we condemn the draconian law banning us by simply continuing with our peaceful activities as usual and bowing to seek redress in the appropriate way and time. This
peaceful and responsible stance greatly discomfits the government and Wahabbists, for they expect us to be in disarray and take arms, then government onslaught follows, this all happens in their foolish daydreams. They tried and still are trying relentlessly to portray IMN as insurrection or rebellion that amasses arms, numerous of their plots to plant munitions in our centres and houses were uncovered.
Incessant sponsored articles and front page adverts by hired and faceless individuals and groups all failed to associate IMN with terrorism and insurrection. We know more fiendish plans are ahead by El-rufai and more state Governors, but inshaAllah this will come to pass and
IMN will outlive this trying times as it does in the past, and remain victorious at the end. Our determination is further greased in this solemn time of remembering the sacrifice and steadfastness of Imam Hussain (as) and his honourable companions.
Finnaly, I end this piece by calling on the Buhari-led government to release our leader Sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub Zakzaky (H), his wife and all
our detained and abducted brothers and sisters in known and undisclosed prisons unconditionally.
