"Bring Back Our Girls" Montage

"Bring Back Our Girls" Montage
Montage was created with licensed images purchased from Shutterstock.

On April 14, 2014 276 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram from Chibok. Another 11 Nigerian school girls were kidnapped by Boko Haram on May 4, 2014 from Warabe and 20 from Garkin Fulani on June 9, 2014. Boko Haram threatens to sell them into prostitution.

These girls -- all 307 need to be released immediately and unconditionally so that they may be able to return to their families and pursue their God-given dreams.

"[I]t is not lawful for you that you should take women... against their will." [Islam: Qu'ran: The Women 4:19]

"[D]o not compel [women] to prostitution, when they desire to keep chaste..." [Islam: Qu'ran: The Light 24:33]

"Acquisition of knowledge is binding on all..." [Islam: Ibn Maja in al-Sunan, 1:81 §224]

By their actions it is apparent that Boko Haram's members are not Muslims but infidels in the strongest sense. If they are not infidels, they ought to prove it -- Release the girls, stop the senseless killings and repent for their crimes against Allah and humanity.

In Islam, God is known as al-Wadud or "He who loves."

"Religion is love and love is religion" -- Islam: Imam al-Baqir (676-733 CE)

“The Eternal… made all things in [l]ove. On [l]ove they all depend.” [Islam: Farid ud Din Attar, 12th Century CE Sufi poet]

“God created a hundred portions of mercy. He placed one portion between His creation [so] they [could] have compassion on each other…” [Islam: Saheeh Al-Bukhari, Saheeh Muslim, Al-Tirmidhi, et al.]

“I will not lose sight of the labor of any of you who labors in My way, be it man or woman; each of you is equal to the other.” [Islam: Qu'ran: The Book of Imran 3:195]

“There is no compulsion in religion…” [Islam: Qu'ran: The Cow 2:256]

“My God, who can have tasted the sweetness of [Your] love, then wanted another in place of [You]?” [Islam: Supplication 77]

Note: The open shackles symbolize release and the pair of hearts portray that they are first and fore-most loved by their families and secondly by the world.

Thank you! I just hope the international community can do something since I have no faith in Nigeria, especially after the Amnesty International report -- www.amnestyusa.org/news/press-releases/nigerian-authorities-failed-to-act-on-warnings-about-boko-haram-raid-on-school

I'm just concerned, though, that the international community is engaging in more show than action.

6 years ago.
William Sutherland club has replied to Ch'an club
Thank you for the courage to admit this since so few are willing to do so. It's precisely these people who make Islam into some sort of evil theology and dishonor Mohammad who in reality believed in tolerance (e.g. Muslims for the first few centuries coexisted peacefully with Jews and Christians and respected diversity of opinions protected by the Constitution of Medina, which enabled its rapid spread) and forgiveness (he forgave those who had plotted against him in Mecca when the City fell to his army and a woman who had attempted to poison him).

Thank you again everyone! Still waiting for them to be freed. It's really sad that based on the latest news stories, still little to nothing is being done. For example, one escaped victim has yet to be questioned by the police, there's little troop presence in the area, and families are pleading that the world keeps up the pressure and doesn't forget.

Thank you everybody!

Mixed news today. It is great news that the circulated video shows that many of the girls are alive. At the same time, it is just another slap in the face to Mohammad and Allah and a further figurative desecration of the Qu'ran if some of the girls have been indeed forcibly converted to Islam. :(

www.cnn.com/2014/05/12/world/africa/nigeria-abducted-girls

Considering that the Nigerian government is completely impotent when it comes to finding and rescuing the girls, I really hope they just make the prisoner swap demanded of them. There are no better or viable alternatives for Lagos. They OWE the families and kidnapped girls this much considering the military fled hours before the abductions. If they didn't want a fight, all they had to do was simply evacuate the school before Boko Haram moved in!
