After killing 1000+ Muslims in the #Zaria_Massacre, the Nigerian President Buhari visits the Ka’ba:
It was Karl Marx that declared in his most famous words that “Religion is the opiate of the masses”. Despite the fact that I rejected this blanket condemnation of all religion by Karl Marx, I accept the fact that “Religion can be used wrongly an opiate of the masses”. Religion can be used by the wicked & unreligious to exploit and deceive the gullible masses.
A good example is how the greedy Western imperialists uses Christianity to justify the genocide and occupation of what are today called America, Canada, Australia etc. A prominent African leader said that when the White colonialist came to Southern Africa they brought their Bible and asked the indigenous Africans to close their eyes and pray. When the indigenous Africans finally opened their eyes, the While colonialists had stolen their lands and left them with the Bible.
Good examples of how religion can be a tool of exploitation and domination is found in Africa today where their corrupt and wicked leaders who are tools of Western imperialism & Global Zionism uses religion to deceive and control their gullible masses.
The Nigerian President Buhari in other to further the evil agenda of Western imperialism in #Africa targeted a popular Nigerian Islamic scholar, Sheikh Ibraheem #Zakzaky, that have large followership in the West African sub-region and killed 1000+ of his followers on the 12th & 13th December, 2015. The Nigerian government via the Nigerian Army burnt his residence and burnt dozens of Nigerians alive there. Despite these monumental crimes that are undoubtedly war crimes, the West who lay claim as flagbearers of human rights is silent on these heinous crimes.
The Nigerian President Buhari recently went to Saudi Arabia to be “rewarded” for the services of brutally killing 1000+ defenseless & unarmed #Shia_Muslims in #Nigeria and destroying the iconic Zaria #Husseiniyya. While in Saudi Arabia the Nigerian tyrant decided to perform the Umrah (Lesser Hajj) to further deceive the gullible that he is pious and upright.
He failed to understand that the purity and sanctity of the Ka’ba is inferior to the pure blood of the innocent that he shedded in the Zaria massacre.
In the Targhib wa’ l-Tarhib of Imam al-Mundhiri, 3/276 it has the following #Sunni hadith from `Abd Allah ibn `Amr ibn al-`As that he said:
“I saw the Messenger of Allah (sa) performing tawaf around the Holy Ka`ba saying to it: ‘How pure and good you are! how pure and good your fragrance is! how great and exalted you are! and how great and exalted your sanctity is! But by Him in Whose hand is Muhammad’s soul, the sanctity of a believer’s blood and property in the sight of Allah is greater than your sanctity!’“
His visit to the House of God will never wash away the pure blood of the 1000+ innocent Nigerians that he brutally murdered that included women, #children and the aged in the Zaria massacre. God is Just and promised to extract His vengeance on all those who massacred the innocent.
Religion especially Islam promotes goodness and righteousness in every situation, the brutal murder of the innocent is the peak of wickedness and evil. Today there are 100s of Widows and Orphans as a result of the brutal killings of their protectors by the Nigerian Army. And 100s of members of IMN are in illegal detention that included Sheikh Zakzaky who is held incommunicado by the oppressive Nigerian government.
