  1. “He will call you this time.” by Dr Ashy; an ad that clearly criticizes a woman’s beauty, that she must be plastic to be talked to. Seriously?

4. Why is there a woman for cablevision? “2 in $15”? And why is there TV stamps on the woman’s body? This ad looks anything except a TV ad!

Many more sexist ads are out there; this is would be part 1 of it.

Bokoharam; who are they?

It was founded that Bokoharam came to be known from the Salafist sector as “Boko Haram”, which are based on their own understanding and teachings made. The accepted term of translation for the name is “Western education is forbidden”, though it can have a wider meaning since boko means Western fraud. This group wanted to be known by the phrase which translates people committed to the Prophet’s Teachings for Propagation and Jihad.

This group began to emerge since 2003; where a collection of light minded Islamists made a treat to have control on the remote area of Kanamma, where they clashed with the authorities.

An extreme Islamist, young and charismatic preacher called Mohammed Yusuf had strict interpretations on the Qur’an who also believed that the creation of Nigeria by British colonialists imposed a Western and un-islamic way of life to Muslims. It is still unclear if Yusuf played a role in the violence of 2003 and 2004; but he later denied it by saying that young youths studied the Qu’ran with him.

In 2009, authorities known as Operation Flush II in Maiduguri confessed that Yusuf’s followers wounded 17 Boko Haram members, which later made Yusuf to denounce the security forces and called his followers to rise against them. In a very violent campaign, which stayed for over 5 days, they attacked police stations and used gun battles before the military broke down. Eventually, Yusuf was captured by soldiers and was handed to the police who chose to shoot him dead.

Later, Boko Haram went underground for more than a year after the emerging in 2010 with a strict raid on prisons. Abubakar Shekau, who is Yusuf’s deputy; was claimed by the police that he was killed in the 2009 uprising, and videos began to appear in the group’s new leader. The violent attacks gradually grew more deadly, particularly by the use of the explosives. A suicide attacker rammed a car bomb into the UN headquarters in the capital of Abuja in 2011 which killed 23 people in the most high profiles in several incidents. Those violence attacks became frequent in many parts of Nigeria.

In 2013, Boko Haram targeted pupils in schools with serious and awful school attacks in the northeast which killed many boys and girls. Later, the group reported that they are kidnapping women and girls with the rude intention of raping them or making them brides. Later in 2014, attackers practiced invasion in northeast Nigeria and kidnapped 276 school girls, who were between 16 and 18 years old; 219 went missing. Later, Shekau claimed credit for the kidnappings in a video and chose to threaten them in videos and sell them.

Last but not least, it can be best thought of Boko Haram as an umbrella with true organizations which were on the very top; for such reasons, it is difficult or even impossible to mention how many followers Boko Haram owns. It is not clear how much of insecurity is driven by Shekau or if he is still alive, when the military claimed that he might have been killed. Someone who looks and speaks like Shekau appeared in videos showing that the violence is getting worse.

 

Saudi Arabia welcomed 2016 by execution.

Saudi Arabia executed 47 people for terrorism acts in one day; which included the Shia’a cleric Sheikh Nimr al- Nimr.  Most of the individuals who were executed are Sunnis because they were previously convicted in 2003 and 2004 deadly attacks of al- Qaeda which killed many Saudis and foreigners.

Sheikh Nimr al – Nimr.

Therefore, the ministry statement published on the news agency, that the 47 that were convicted were adopting the takfiri theory, joining terrorist organization and planting various implementation of criminal plots.

Al- Nimr was a supporter of the anti-government protests that were held up in the Kingdom, where the Shi’aa majority complained marginalization.  Therefore, Iran previously warned the Kingdom that the execution of al- Nimr will cost the country badly.

According to the individuals who monitor the death penalty around the world, confessed that Saudi Arabia executed 157 people during 2015 only, and that was the highest level reached in two decades for the country.

Last but not least, which toxic level did freedom of speech get to? Are there absolute? Is torture and beheading fine because it is their country? Is killing gays okay because the women are repressed? If this view was in what is done, is it possible to build a wall and ignore what is happening behind it? What can be said to a woman looking for asylum because she will be stoned because she got raped? What can one explain to gays who will face death because they dared to fall in love? Why must people think that they must abide by the laws in the country?

Was killing for freedom of speech mentioned in the Quran?  It is about the big question, isn’t it?

Rules and laws were made to be broken anyways.
