The following is a comment i made on one of the various postings on social media depicting the leader of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky as practicing what they call Zakzakism and not Shi’ism.
Those engaged in the campaign are working on both the Hausa and English readers on Facebook in particular and other social platforms.
What they are basically doing is fabricating lies and calumny as well as fault finding on Sheikh Zakzaky.
They have founded a parallel Shi’ite organization to reduce the influence and support of Sheikh Zakzaky they claim.
Some of the reasons why they are doing this is to destroy what they see as the credibility and integrity with which Iran is holding the Sheikh. They also see it as a way of taming his strong support from Shi’ite adherents in Nigeria in particular and Africa at large.
it is a team work between the Israelis, Saudis and the compromised Nigerian security funded mainly by Saudi Arabia.
Some of the things they want to achieve include stopping the Quds Day and Iranian influence for the Israelis and stopping Arbaeen treck and the spread of Shi’ism which the terror laden Wahabis see as a threat for the Saudis.
I will like to use this medium to remind my fellow brothers in Islam that a parallel Shi’ite group has been founded by Israel and Saudi Arabia to fight against the Islamic Movement in Nigeria which they consider as the only threat to them. They are working hand-in-hand with the compromised Nigerian security apparatus to ensure they stop the Islamic Movement under the leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky (H). The Israeli’s are after fighting the increasing Iranian influence while the Saudi’s are against the fast spreading of Shi’ism in Africa which is a threat to their terror laden Wahabism. Some of the steps they have taken includes founding a fake Shi’ite organization to counter the growth and strength of IMN. You will notice that the only thing they do is attack the personality and person of the IMN leader Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky. Their aim is not to preach love for Ahli Bayt but to drive people away from Sheikh Zakzaky who they see as a threat. The Saudis have invested millions of dollars on this contract and are not only funding the Arabic speaking idiots to spread Wahabism and institute lies against Shi’ites and Shi’ism, they are also bribing northern state governors to always clampdown on the IMN members to scare them away from the revered Sheikh. The attack, killing and sunsequent arrest of members of thhe IMN in Zaria last December was part of the plan which they are still pursuing. Currently they are sponsoring campaigns on social media to discredit the personality of Sheikh Zakzaky and spread lies and calumny against him, and by all means show people that he is not Shi’ite so that they can pull away his followers, supporters and sympathizers who they see as following him because of Shi;ism. Most of those presently engaged in this smear campaign are people of questionable character who pose as religious persons. You will always see them pretending to be Shi’ites and attacking Sheikh Zakzaky. I advice that you remain steadfast and resolute as always, for they have already failed as usual.
i hope this message will serve as an eye opener to the IMN members
