The massacre of Muslims may have occurred in Nigeria but it aroused the concern of people from all walks of life worldwide. Rallies protesting the horrific massacre have been held in London (UK), Washington DC and New York (US) and Toronto (Canada). There have also been protest rallies in Iran, Pakistan, India and a host of other countries. In each locale, there were calls for the arrest and trial of the Nigerian army chief Tukur Buratai.
Soldiers are trained to kill but their job is to do so against external enemies and in defence of the State. The Nigerian army, like that in Egypt and other parts of the Muslim world, revel in killing their own citizens. The December 12 attack on the Islamic movement in Nigeria has resulted in the cold blooded murder of nearly 1000 innocent Muslims. Will the murderers face trial for their crimes? It is not even being mentioned.
The Nigerian army, like armies in most Muslim countries, has perpetrated a massacre of innocent Muslims in Nigeria. It targeted the headquarters of the Islamic movement in Nigeria and murdered some 20 people in cold blood. Hundreds of others were injured.
