In the Name of Allaah, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful.
"A man identified as Femi Orojo has allegedly raped and impregnated his 13-year-old step-daughter, Odunayo in Okitipupa town in Okitipupa Local Government Area of Ondo state." dailypost.ng
"The Anambra State Police Command has arrested a pastor with a Pentecostal church identified as Nzube Ohuama, for allegedly raping a 13-year-old girl during a night vigil in the church premises."
There are scores of young girls being used as "Sex toys" in virtually all parts of the world largely due to the sick nature of human but amazingly those that have subjugated themselves to bigotry have chosen to amplify such deeds when perpetrated by an adherent of a particular religion or region.
What is being witnessed is a deliberate and systematic silence over the plights of scores of teens being impregnated in other parts of the country from the so called intellectuals and activists that naturally burst out in an emotional and intellectual hypocrisy when the sin at hand is attributed to a Muslim or someone from the North.
Speak against evil even if it be against yourself, your kinsman, your region, race or ethnicity and your fight for justice and rights of others will be legitimate.
Don't put a blindfold over your sins or the sins of your kinsman while you stand on a podium to amplify the sins of others simply because you have settled hatred for them in your heart.
Just when you think people are fighting for a just cause they will frustrate your expectations by promoting racism and ethnicity.
The 'peace' slogan echoed by Islam does not in anyway make the Muslims intellectually docile when insulted, rather it calls for a systematic response that is not reactive in nature but thoughtful enough to expose the bigots to the reality of true intelligence.
Whatever talent Allaah has given us it is there for us to promote and defend the honor of Islam and Muslims before any other thing.
Don't stoop so low by engaging yourself in a "word fight" with those that have chosen to attack your religion or region but rather respond to issues in a matured and intellectual manner.
