Religion, itself, is Sin: Angry Mob decapitate woman in Kano for alleged blasphemy


This, in 2016? Ha! very not funny. This heinous act, added to the plethora of inhumane tendencies artlessly and heartlessly expressed in form and in the name of religion, confirm, that this concept of being religious as against being spiritual, is the real sin.

According to the Geneva Center For Human Rights Advancement and Global Dialogue, this act by the Kano mob falls under the tone of a terrorist attack, as it incites towards religious intolerance, constitutes a breach of human rights and represents a serious threat to international peace and security.

But, have arrests been made? ….errrr, this is Nigeria.

…will arrests be made?…….errrr, this is Nigeria.

…any progressive update on this from the Kano Police to make it more than a mere news item?….errr, this is Nigeria.

chai! I’m saddened.
