Those who are vocal enough are saying, "Examples are better than precept". Actually,
I was greatly astonished with the way and manner an unrecognized Shi'ites group, demarcating only a minute domain in Nigeria criticizingly condemned the activities and ideology of a well-known Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the spiritual leadership of Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky(H).
Those who are vocal enough are saying, "Examples are better than precept". Actually,
At least nine people were killed and dozens injured when a mosque they were building in Somalia collapsed, residents said Saturday.
Over 100 people were helping pour a concrete foundation to the mosque in Garasballey district close to the capital Mogadishu on Friday when the structure suddenly collapsed, leaving several trapped under the debris.

With regarding rationality, Imam established Islamic-democratic system following the victory of the Islamic Revolution under his leadership in 1979.

So much misunderstandings and misconceptions have been surrounding Shia throughout the history of Islam. This is surprising considering the fact that there is abundant information and literature on Shia and Shiism. Similarly there Shia Muslims that live and intermingle with the society, yet Shia and Shiism remain ambiguous to many people. These fallacies may be attributed to ignorance about the religion of Islam in general to many.

Re: Zakzaky could’ve led to uprising worse than Boko Haram’s, says brother Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky I read in befuddlement an interview published by this newspaper dated 23rd April, 2016 with the above title. The interview was said to have been given by Sheikh Zakzaky’s half-brother named Sani Yakubu. The interview was full of fallacies. His answers were all ironical of the questions he was asked. Relating the Islamic movement that is dedicated to teaching and learning with Boko Haram was the greatest blunder and most laughable claim Mr Sani Yakubu made during the interview.
Recently, the Nigerian Army through its spokesman, Col. S.K Usman Kuka Sheka issued a statement condemning the renowned Human rights group, Amnesty International over its report on the atrocities committed by the Nigerian army in Zaria last December. He accused the organization of being biased, hasty and intruding into the internal affairs of our country, among others, without providing any proofs to counter those that informed Amnesty's report. Not long after that a mushroom group sprang up casting aspersions on the person of the country Director of Amnesty International, Ambassador M.K.

Sheikh Hamza Muhammad Lawal, the leader of another Shia organization in #Nigeria “The Thaqalayn Cultural Foundation” made a brilliant presentation today (25/04/2016) to the Judicial Commission of Inquiry (JCI) on the #ZariaMassacre
As various witnesses are called to micro analyze aspects of the social and religious record of the Shia Muslims popularly called the “Shiites” in Kaduna over 40 years, one can anticipate the invitation of persons like Pastor Yohanna Buru, head of Christ Evangelical Church to testify about the rather unusual and historic interfaith tolerance acts of the Shiites and Islamic Movement of Nigeria, IMN.
When they reached the outskirts of Damascus they were made to halt. Yazid was informed of their arrival and he fixed a date for their entry into the city. On the morning of the appointed day, the members of the family of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.&h.h.) were led into Damascus. They were tied with ropes and herded together like goats. If anyone stumbled she was whipped. The city streets had been decorated and the sound of music filled the air.

The event took place today, 19th of April, 2016, at Markaz Premises, T/Wada Kaduna.
In Nigeria, why do they create such disasters for that peaceful, conciliatory and believing Sheikh [Ibrahim Zakzaky]?
Why do they murder about 1,000 people who are close to him?
Why do they martyr his six children in the course of two years?
Why does the world of Islam remain silent in the face of such crimes? ...
Is this to the interest of the world of Islam? ... Enemies' goals are dangerous goals. They are devised in their – as they say – “think tanks”. We should be awake.

It is definitely not just like that the Kaduna state government decided to tell the world the role it played in the genocide perpetrated on members of the Islamic Movement by the Nigerian government and its Army. It is rather a plan to exonerate itself from the crime against humanity most especially as it has been mentioned in the ICC. Their case is that of at least limiting its level of involvement by revealing something that would not just implicate it but would give it a chance to save itself from another indictment.
