Part 2.
Muslims went far from Qur'an & Hadith. Tribal wars led to Horrors.
Resistance at mass level focused on Sunnah can bring change.

By Kaukab Siddique

Muslims constantly wait for a savior. As I noted in the previous issue, Muslims have even inducted Jesus into their list of saviors and many Muslims insist that Jesus will come back although the Qur'an does not teach any return of Jesus. He is praised, pbuh, highly in the Qur'an but so are Abraham and Moses, peace be on them.

Hadith of Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, have taught about faith and the requirements of faith, but none of the hadith teach that belief in the return of Jesus is a requirement of faith.

Muslims' waiting for a savior and the non -appearance of one, be it Jesus or the Mahdi/messiah even after 1400 years, resulted in the appearance of fake saviors, even though they were soon discovered to be fake.

Reliance on saints and "infallible" cult leaders has become so widespread that many Muslims consider them to be
representatives of Islam.

One deadly aspect of the emergence of local "saviors" is that tribal groups take over a local savior or saint and claim that everyone else is an unbeliever.

[Compare with the wars of the Catholics and Protestants in Europe.]

Tribal groups emerge which claim that they have been wronged and on that basis they claim that others are unbelievers. One such cluster has as it's savior, Ali, r.a., a pious companion of the prophet, pbuh, and the focus on the senseless murder of his son Hussain, r.a. ., which is presented as the ultimate evil.

The supporters of Ali had earlier murdered one of the greatest companions of the prophet, Usman, ra, the compiler of the Qur'an and son-in-law of the prophet, pbuh. This horrific murder of Usman, r.a. changed the golden age of Islam into fratricide.

This murder of one of the greatest Muslims was contrived through a network of rumor mongering. Muslims are often the victims of rumor mongering, though the Quran warns against it. (1)

The dynasty which supported the line of Ali and is known as the Abbasides committed some the bloodiest crimes in the history of the Arabs but their crimes against the Ummayads are almost unknown because they successfully scotched rumor mongering.

With the resurgence of Islam in the 20th century, scholars are teaching that Muslims should strictly adhere to the Qur'an and the authentic hadith. The only leader is Muhammad, pbuh, followed by Abu Bakr, Umar and Usman who understood him best.

Islam teaches striving and struggling on a mass level and with mutual consultation and consent. Da'wah and resistance based on the Sunnah of Muhammad, pbuh, can transform the ummah.

(1) Muhammad ibn Ali al-Shawkani wrote a 227 page book titled A Critique of the Ruling of Al-Taqlid in which he refuted all views which are meant to bring opinions other than those in the Qur'an and hadith into the Islamic belief system. He passed away in 1250 hijri, 1834 c.e. His book has been translated and published in English, along with the Arabic text, by Dar-ar-Arqm in England. (2019).

Al-Shaukani has also done a great job of refuting those who follow the opinions of Abu Hanifa, Malik, Shafa'i and Hanbal. These scholars taught acceptance of Qur'an and Hadith but their supporters often accept their opinions without asking for textual evidence.

He also discusses the opinions of Abu Bakr, r.a. and Umar, r.a., which some thought were opinion based owing to their differences.

Imam Shawkani was from Yemen. He followed a gentle version of Shiaism, then embraced authentic Islam and an outright critic of Sufiism.

This text-related thinking is part of the resurgence of Islam .in our times.

(2) The monstrous slaughter of Hussain ibn Ali, r.a., at Karbala is known to most Muslims at the level of legend and mythology.
It was a tribal atrocity organized by a war lord in Kufa. These popular stories have demonized the entire Ummayed dynasty starting with Yazeed [sometimes including Muawiyya]. As a result most people are not aware of the tribal atrocities committed by war lords who claimed to seek lineage from Abbas and were seen as devotees of Ali, r.a.

Maulana Maudoodi is one scholar who had the integrity
to uncover the horrors perpetrated by the tribes supporting Abbas and devoted to Ali, r.a. against the Ummayads. Here is the extract:

"After conquering Damascus, the capital of the Ummayad dynasty , the Abbasid forces carried out mass slaughter in the city killing 50,000 people. The central mosque of the Ummayads became a stable for the horses of the occupiers for 70 days. The graves of the Ummayad elites, including that of Muawiyya, r.a., were dug up. Hisham bin Abdul Malik's body was found intact in its grave and it was whipped and hung up in public view for a few days and then burned and its ashes blown away.

Every child of the Ummayads was slaughtered and a banquet was held after a carpet was laid on top of the half alive bodies. In Basra all Ummayads were killed and their bodies were thrown into the streets to be half eaten by stray dogs. The same was done to the Ummayeds in Makka and Madina."
[Khilafat o Mulukiat by Maudoodi, Pg 192-193 7th edition, July1974]

Maudoodi gives these historical references for the atrocities against the Ummayeds which are available to all scholars:

Ibn al-Athir, vo.4, pp. 333-334, 341.
al-Bidaya wun Nihaya vol. 10, p. 45.
Ibn Khaldun vol. 3, p.132-133.

Maudoodi also narrates the horrors and atrocities committed by the Abbasides and devotees of Ali in the city of Mosul [now in Iraq].

JI View
Stop trying to fool the Masses.
PTI & PDM no differeent.
People have the right to Protest.

by Qaiser Sharif.

Addressing a reception in honor of the newly elected members of the Punjab Bar Council at Mansoora on Wednesday, JI ameer Sirajul Haq said the dream to transfer Pakistan into real Islamic welfare state cannot not be materialized without the vibrant support of the lawyer community.

He regretted that democracy could not flourish in Pakistan in past seventy years due to different factors and one of them was issue of rigging in almost every election. Therefore, he said, the political parties should sit together to bring reforms in election process. He said the free and fair polls were the need of the country.

The JI chief said PTI government had been fully exposed before the masses in two and half year and it seemed that people of Pakistan were no more ready to listen to the tall claims of the prime minister, adding the many parties which were part of the PDM were also well recognized in the public.

Both sides of the political divide (the PTI and the PDM), he said, now should stop befooling the masses and adopt a serious attitude to address the problems of the country. He reminded the PTI chairman his promise about not to hold the begging bowl after coming into power, saying the ruler badly failed to fulfill even single of his promise he made to the masses.

Sirajul Haq condemned the arrest of the opposition parties' workers, saying the political parties had the constitutional right to hold protest rallies.

LOWER DIR: December 07- Jamaat-e-Islami Emir Senator Sirajul Haq has said that status quo forces have destroyed every sector in past 73 years, leaving the masses in desperate situation.

Addressing a press conference here on Monday, he said there was no difference between the PTI and the PDM as both had nothing to do with the problems of the people.

The agents of the imperialistic forces and feudal lords were part of the three mainstream parties and their only objective to come to power was to serve their self interests, he said, adding the ruling elite continued the policies of British after freedom and treated the masses as their slaves. He regretted that the PTI government which came to power in the name of "change" broke all previous records of bad governance.

The death of seven patients due to unavailability of oxygen in Khyber Teaching Hospital was tragic incident, exposing tall claims of the ruling party to establish a state of the art health system in KP, he said. Senator Siraj demanded the KP chief minister immediately resign from office and called for an independent inquiry into the incident. He said the health and education systems were on the verge of collapse and poor were unable to get any relief from the both sectors.

To a question, Sirajul Haq said that the JI would not be part of the PDM or the government and both were the sides of the same coin. Two main parties in the PDM, he said, supported the PTI on all matters in the past and still many of them were in contact of the ruling party. Therefore, he said, the JI had decided to launch a separate movement against the anti-people policies of the ruling party. Transforming Pakistan into a real Islamic welfare state was the main objective of the JI movement, he said.

Quickly Developed Vaccine and money.
By Sis. Aisha
[Jamaat al-Muslimeen[

New York City - So, Pfizer has come out ahead of everyone else with a COVID-19 vaccine. It is being promoted everywhere. The British government has warned that people with multiple allergies should not get it. But, as usual, the American government is promoting this vaccine for everyone to use, in spite of this warning.

This vaccine came on the market pretty fast! I am cautious about such a quickly developed vaccine coming to market and side effects not yet seen. I remember the 1990-1991 Gulf "War" Syndrome. The media reported that it affected American soldiers who were exposed to the burning oil fields in the Persian Gulf. But, there were earlier reports of soldiers being inoculated with drugs that had not been thoroughly tested by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA). But, since U.S. soldiers are government property, those soldiers' rights were limited.

The numbers of the COVID-19 cases and the deaths still do not make sense for such a deadly disease. Yes, the number of cases may spike, at times, but the deaths are not increasing. During deadly pandemics the number of deaths and the number of cases are nearly equal.

There have been efforts to frighten people into behaviors that will generate the big bucks for some companies, such as Tele-health, which still has not been a number one option for most patients. Many people know that an in-person doctor's visit is more beneficial than a diagnosis via a computer monitor.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), asymptomatic people with COVID-19 are at a very low risk of transmitting COVID-19 to others. This is the result of numerous tracking being done on individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19 in other countries. These results also bring into question the need for such surveillance tracking of COVID-19 cases. Research has also revealed that the positive PCR tests being used on asymptomatic individuals is actually picking up noninfectious viral particles that cannot infect anyone. Most COVID-19 cases consist of asymptomatic individuals.

There are a lot of false positives, as well. These false positives are evident in the National Football League. Many of these false positives are contributing to the "spikes" in COVID-19 cases. These false numbers being reported, today, are no different than the reported deaths during the 1918 Spanish Flu Epidemic. Research has shown that these 1918 deaths may not have been from the flu itself but from doctors over-prescribing aspirin, which caused bleeding lungs! This is not a symptom of the flu.

One thing I understand about America is that every law enacted in this country is meant to generate wealth for some entity or industry. That is capitalism. It is about the almighty dollar, not Almighty God (Allah). People have found ways to make money from fostering children and now from environmental consciousness.

The medical journals are refusing to publish all of the research data being found during this universal government lockdown. One such finding is that wearing a mask may not be as effective as promoted in the media. The same amount of people (1.8% to 2.1% out of 6000 individuals) became infected, during the trial, whether they wore or mask or not.

Now, that the media and the politicos have scared us nearly to death, limited our whereabouts, and inhibited our ability to feed ourselves and our families, they claim a vaccine will be the end of our problems. But, what is the problem? Is it really a tiny, potentially lethal germ or is it a corrupt government?

Pfizer is going to make a bundle of money from this Coronavirus Scare Campaign.

Horrifying Mass Executions in Egypt. A Regime Supported by US & Israel.
General Sissi Bent on Extinguishing all Opposition.

December 2. "The Egyptian authorities have embarked on a horrifying execution spree in recent months, putting scores of people to death, in some cases following grossly unfair mass trials," Amnesty International's Middle East and North Africa Research and Advocacy Director Philip Luther said.

Luther added that executions in the country were "particularly appalling" considering all the "well documented and systematic breaches of fair trial rights in Egypt with courts often relying on torture-tainted 'confessions'".

The Reuters news agency said Egypt's state news centre and the interior ministry could not be reached for comment on the Amnesty report.
al-Jazeera Dec 12

[General Sissi says there are no political prisoners in Egypt!]

Ruhollah Zam's execution by Iran.
Execution of Iranian journalist condemned as a 'shocking escalation in the use of death penalty against dissidents'.

Press advocacy and human rights groups have expressed outrage over the execution of Iranian journalist Ruhollah Zam, with some campaigners calling it a "shocking escalation" in the use of the death penalty by Iran against dissidents.

Zam was convicted for fuelling anti-government unrest during nationwide protests 3 years ago. Zam's website and a channel he created on the popular messaging app Telegram had spread the timings of the protests and embarrassing information about officials that directly challenged Iran's government. His Amad News feed had more than a million followers.

Zam escaped Iran following the post-election protests of 2009 and was granted asylum in France. However, he was abducted during a visit to Iraq in October 2019 by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, apparently with the assistance of Iraqi intelligence authorities, and forcibly returned to Iran, according to Amnesty.


 Free Kasmhir

Kashmir Watches 'World Human Rights Day" from afar and wonders when those Words will become Action in Kashmir.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) adopted by the UN General Assembly on 10 December 1948, goes down in the history as a universal covenant whereby the Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in cooperation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms.

The landmark document drafted soon after the end of the Second World War was designed to cover the entire spectrum of human rights. It provides a strong foundation to ensure the dignity of all human beings as equal citizens of the global community regardless of the region, religion, color and creed they belong to. The covenant stresses the protection of the rights and fundamental freedoms of all human beings and affirms their universal character as inherent, inalienable, and applicable to all human beings.

Since the inception of the UDHR, considerable institutional progress has been noticed in the western world in this regard, however, implementation of the core international human rights remains still a distant dream in the 3rd world countries. Unfortunately, there are countries around us who are still suffering from a colonial hangover. Despite signing this landmark document these states have miserably failed to uphold the solemn commitments they had made vis-à-vis the protection of human rights and granting essential fundamental freedoms to people. Silencing dissenting voices, muzzling media, criminalizing of independent journalism and journalists, a clampdown of human rights and political activists, persecution of civil society, undue restrictions on people's right to movement, the right to freedom of speech and expression are the colonial tactics being practiced by the governments as a matter of official policy to advance their colonial agenda. And India is certainly one that tops the list of the countries having an appalling human rights track record of killing, maiming, murdering people in the occupied territory of Jammu and Kashmir, where inhuman state repression against the majority community remain largely unnoticed.

These reports pouring in from the restive region speak volumes as to how systematically the Indian government and its forces have been violating the human rights of the people enshrined in the UDHR and other international treaties. The reports by the office of the high commissioner on human rights (OHCHR) and other global human rights watchdogs while highlighting the abysmal state of human rights in the region had time and again stressed independent and impartial investigations into the human rights violations. These reports, which have taken the lid off the cauldron of crimes in the Indian-occupied Kashmir serve as an indictment against the Indian state.

Virtually, every article of the UDHR is being flagrantly and brutally disregarded by the government of India and its forces that operate in Kashmir under the cover of black laws such as PSA, AFSPA, UPAP and National security act. In addition to thousands of enforced disappearances, the absence of an independent accountability framework in the region has led to unaccounted deaths of Kashmiris particularly the youth in police custody.

These violations of serious nature go largely unchecked and vastly unnoticed at the international level because the restrictions on expression and movement of independent journalists and human rights activists prevent the voices of Kashmiris from reaching the international community.

While the World is celebrating Human Rights Day under the theme "Recover Better and Stand Up for Human Rights" this year, it is time that the world should realize their moral obligations vis-à-vis the situation in Kashmir and stand up for the rights of the people of who are caught in the crosshairs of a conflict and coronavirus.

Despite the growing calls for the elimination of all forms of violence, life in Kashmir is getting tougher and tougher for the native population who are battling for survival under the prolonged military occupation. Atrocities, bloodshed, killings, encounters, cordon and search operations (CASO), nocturnal raids and violence are all that define today's Kashmir. Literally, there is a lockdown within a lockdown, which has led to a difficult and dangerous situation.

After the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, Kashmir has sunk deeper into a quagmire of reckless violence and lawlessness, which has given birth to yet another epidemic of epic proportions that keeps haunting people in the Kashmir valley. While the coronavirus crisis is looming large, the Indian troops who are the potential carriers of coronavirus keep moving in herds from one village to another, from one district to harass, humiliate and persecute Kashmiris.

Booking political activists and human rights activists in malicious cases, detaining them and forcing them to appear in courts during the global corona pandemic is an attack on constitutional human rights and a deliberate act to put innocent people's lives at risk.

Rather than focusing on how to avoid this catastrophe, New Delhi found yet another opportunity to foster its colonial agenda, the basis of which was laid on 5th August 2019.

Since these actions are in serious contravention of the international human rights treaties there is an urgent need that the world community should take effective cognizance and initiate an action against the states not adhering to international commitments. More importantly, the government of India should be pressurized to rescind its actions and pave a way for holding a referendum in the region to allow Kashmiris to exercise their inalienable right, the right to self-determination, which happens to be a cardinal principle of the UN Charter and other international human rights covenants.

Tailpiece: "In theory, Kashmir is governed by law but in practice, the people are governed by unknown methods, unknown to any civilized society".

Secrets of Surat Al-Kahf

PROPHET MUHAMMAD~ (SalAllahu 'Allaihi-Wasallam) asked us to recite Surat Al-Kahf every Friday...
Is there any preference for this Surah over the other 113 Surahs?
What is the benefit of reciting this weekly?
Let's See The Benefits... 'In Shaa Allah'.
First of all, in this Surah Allah (Azza wa Jall) gives us 4 different, but very interesting stories !
Let's explore each along with the lessons we get from
each of them....
  1. 'The People of the Cave': It's the story of young men who lived in a disbelieving town, so they decide to migrate for the sake of Allah (Azza wa Jall) and run away. Allah (Azza wa Jall) rewards them with mercy in the cave and protection from the elements of nature. The Lesson of this story is the 'Trial of Faith'{!}.

  2. 'The owner of Two Gardens': A story of a man whom Allah (Azza wa Jall) blessed with two beautiful gardens, but the man forgot to thank the One who blessed him with everything and he even dared to doubt Allah (Azza wa Jall) regarding the afterlife. so his garden was destroyed... he regretted it, but was too late and his regret did not benefit him.
    The Lesson of this story: 'Trial of Wealth'{!}.

  3. 'Musa (Alayhi s-Salam) and Khidr (Alayhi s-Salam): When Musa (Alayhi s-Salam) was asked "Who is the most knowledgeable of the people of Earth?" Musa (Alayhi s-Salam) said that it was him as he assumed he was the only Prophet on Earth at the time. But Allah (Azza wa Jall) revealed to him that there was someone who knew more than him about certain things. Musa (Alayhi s-Salam) traveled looking for him and learned how divine wisdom can sometimes be hidden in matters which we perceive as bad.
    The Lesson of this story: 'Trial of Knowledge' {!}

    The final one... which is somewhat global...
  4. 'Dhul Qarnayn': Allah (Azza wa Jall) mentions the story of a great King who was given knowledge and power travelling the world helping people and spreading all that was good, he was able to overcome the problem of 'Yajooj-Majooj' by building a massive dam with the help of people whom he could not even understand!
    Lesson of this story: 'Trial of Power' {!}

ALLAH (Azza wa Jall) relates Four different stories relating to 4 different kinds of trials that we pass through in our day to day lives!

Let's have a look through 'Hadiths' to learn more about this Surah: In many 'Hadiths'
PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SalAllahu'AllaihiWasallam) mentions that the one who reads and memorises verses of Surat Al Kahf will be protected from the trials of the 'Dajjal' {!}
But why this Surah {?}
What is the relation between SURAT AL- KAHF and DAJJAL?
The answer is simple... Dajjal will appear before the Day of Judgement with Four (4) Trials{!}
  1. he will ask people to worship him and not Allah (Azza wa Jall)
    Trial of Faith !
  2. he will be given powers to start/stop rain and tempt people with his wealth. Trial of Wealth !
  3. he will tempt people with knowledge and news he gives them:
    Trial of Knowledge !
  4. he will control huge parts of the Earth: A Trial of Power !
{'Subhan Allah'}

Hadith of the Week

Narrated by Abu Huraira, r.a.:
The Prophet said,

"While a man was riding a cow, it turned towards him and said, 'I have not been created for this purpose (i.e. carrying), I have been created for slaughtering." The Prophet added, "I, Abu Bakr and 'Umar believe in the story." The Prophet went on, "A wolf caught a sheep, and when the shepherd chased it, the wolf said,

'Who will be its guard on the day of wild beasts, when there will be no shepherd for it except me?' "After narrating it, the Prophet said,

"I, Abu Bakr and 'Umar too believe it." Abu Salama (a sub-narrator) said, "Abu Bakr and 'Umar were not present then." (It has been written that a wolf also spoke to one of the companions of the Prophet near Medina as narrated in Fatah-al-Bari: Narrated Unais bin 'Amr: Ahban bin Aus said,

"I was amongst my sheep. Suddenly a wolf caught a sheep and I shouted at it. The wolf sat on its tail and addressed me, saying, 'Who will look after it (i.e. the sheep) when you will be busy and not able to look after it? Do you forbid me the provision which Allah has provided me?'

" Ahban added, "I clapped my hands and said, 'By Allah, I have never seen anything more curious and wonderful than this!' On that the wolf said,

'There is something (more curious) and wonderful than this; that is, Allah's Apostle in those palm trees, inviting people to Allah (i.e. Islam).'

"Unais bin 'Amr further said, "Then Ahban went to Allah's Apostle and informed him what happened and embraced Islam.)" palm trees or other trees and share the fruits with me."

Janaza [Dec. 10]
From Imam Badi Ali.
As-slamu alaikum,

At Dr. Muhamad Amjad Bhatti's janazah yesterday, everyone had something good to say about him, (may Allah be Merciful to him). I would like to share a few comments.

He devoted his life to serving his community, the poor and the sick for the sake of Allah.

He Adopted a "we, not me" mentality and practiced sacrifice in every situation.

No act was too small for him.

He was involved in a lot of community projects: building masjids, graveyards, treating the sick, helping the needy and sponsoring students of knowledge.

Oh Allah have mercy on our Brother, oh Allah help us to follow his example. Ameen.

Charity [Dec.9]
Give in charity because your shrouds (of burial) will not have pockets to carry your wealth.
When Allah blesses you financially, don't raise your standard of living, raise your standard of giving.
You will be rewarded for giving tremendously.
Oh Allah help us become more sincere, pure, and beautiful through giving and sacrifice.

 Invitation to Think

A Young Man's Story when he first went to College in Lahore.

Knowledge Can Break Prejudice.

The Imam of the mosque of our neighborhood was a very good man. May Allah keep him safe and sound.

After graduation, when I started going to Punjab University to study law, Imam Sahib called me and said:

"You are a very good person, where you are going for education, there are many ′′ Maududias," Beware of them and yes, do not read their books otherwise you will lose your faith,"

He took oath from me. I was a young and emotional man, so I swore that I will never read the books of Maududi.
So, when I reached the university, I saw a large number of ′′ Maududis′′ as Imam Sahib had warned

I used to run away from the youth of Islami Jamiat students in the university as if the devil runs away from the prayer and the crow runs away from the sling

Classes started and after a few days our professor said in the class that "tomorrow all the students should bring Maulana Maududi's book Islamic State. We will study it. This book is very useful to understand Islamic law."

As soon as I heard the name of "Maududi I decided in my heart that I will never bring his book. Ithe next few days I went to class without bringing this book! One day the professor saw that I did not have a book. He asked me: "what's the problem son? Is there no money for a book?"

I said, "no Professor! I don't want to read this person's book; our Imam Sahib says ′′ Mudoodism is a temptation, don't read his books′′ and Imam Sahib has also made me swear that I won't read his books. So I didn't buy the book."

The professor spoke to me and said: ′′ Learn, don't waste your parents' money, go home and do something. You want to become a lawyer and you already decided the case without listening to the accused?"

It happened by Allah that I understood his words.

Then I asked "I have sworn not to read it, what should I do ?"

So the professor guided me that atonement can be paid for it So i paid the atonement and started reading the books of Maulana Maududi. Then I realized that the study of Maulana's books is stopped only due to prejudice and narrow views, and there is no reason for not reading.

Praise be to Allah, that day and today, I am busy trying to spread this revolutionary invitation of Maulana Maududi.

Jewish Settlers Set fire to Olive Trees near Hebron (again!)

Jewish settlers set fire to large tracts of olive fields, burning hundreds of fully grown trees belonging to a local Palestinian family.

Coordinator of the anti-Settlement Committees, Rateb Jabour, said a group of settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Mitzpe Yair threw suspicious objects into olive fields which caused the fire to break out. The fire destroyed around 400 trees.

The Palestinian Civil Defense firefighters managed to put out the large fire before it reached residents' homes.

The destruction of Palestinian olive trees by Israeli soldiers and Jewish settlers has become routine in recent years.

For the Apartheid Wall to be built, tens of thousands of olive trees, some of which were 600-years-old, were uprooted by Israeli bulldozers.

Attempt to Disrupt the President's home state?

Things appear to be out of control for the Buhari led Administration with almost daily reports bordering on myriads of insecurities which expose incompetencies on the part of the government in that regard.

It is yet unfathomable to many Nigerians for kidnappers to invade the home state of the president when he was physically present. That is exactly what happened on the Friday,the 9th of December, 2020!

Thisday Newspaper gathered that the bandits/kidnappers invaded Government Secondary School, Kankara , in Kankara Local Government Area of Katsina State and kidnapped many students of which number is yet to be ascertained. But rumor has it that it could be more than four hundred (400) of them. It was learnt that the bandits/kidnappers had operated at Kankara town where they left many people injured and others kidnapped before finally invading the boarding school at about 10:00pm on the same Friday.

Police say security services were working with the school authorities to ascertain the actual number of the missing students as the bandits also reportedly shot at the school's gateman and another officer , but they are both said to be alive and receiving treatment.

In Nigeria of today, no one can be sure of what will happen to him in the next minutes. Our case is completely volatile and many people do not realize that.
