Boko Haram are “bunch of despicable cowards who have nothing to do with Islam” -MURIC
London, Feb. 26, 2018 (AltAfrika)-Nigeria’s Muslim Rights Organisation, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, says the recent attack on school girls in Yobe state, northern Nigeria has further exposed Boko Haram terrorists as a despicable bunch of cowards who turn their guns on unarmed innocent girls and the most vulnerable members of society.
In a statement on Monday, MURIC re- emphasised its position that Boko haram members were simply unbelievers who should be regarded as enemies of Islam “Once again, Boko Haram terrorists have proved that they have nothing in common with Nigerian Muslims. The abduction of Dapchi school girls is a flagrant violation of Islamic rules of engagement which forbid attacks on women, children and old people during hostilities. Islamic rules concerning wars are so humane that even trees and livestock belonging to the enemy must be spared”
