#BokoHaram and the usual Silence of #AlAzhar and #OIC

The whole world is watching now the tragedy of the 200 Nigerian girls abducted by the bloody Boko
Some of the girls' names 

Yesterday Boko Haram announced that it would sell those 200 girls as slaves in the market. Of course I can imagine some of you my dear readers with an open month wondering how on earth and heavens there are slave markets in 2014 and I would say yes there is huge human trafficking trade going on in the world in 2014. It has not stopped unfortunately because we got heartless bastards.
Needless to say Boko Haram is an insult to Islam in specific and to humanity in general. Of course I wonder where Al Azhar institution from all this this !? Al Azhar is the most important Islamic institution in Africa as far as I remember. I know the answer but I am just wondering. I had enough of hearing in our media Al Azhar should restore its role , Al Azhar should restore its role and then things like this happens and Al Azhar does not care.
In case you do not know Al Azhar is highly respected in Islamic African countries. I am not asking Egypt or Arab countries to get involved heavens forbid.
Updated : Al Azhar issued a statement today denouncing what BokoHaram did demanding them to release the girls. 
I also wonder where the Organization of the Islamic Conference is from that tragedy !? The world is launching a campaign to return the girls back and we got nothing from those two big organizations. I am not speaking about countries but organizations that allegedly play important role for Muslims and Islamic countries.
Both OIC and Al Azhar repeated over and over that they fight extremism and honestly I do not see this.
By the way you can join the #BringBackourgirls campaign on twitter. Of course I doubt that those terrorists of Boko Haram would care for this campaign yet a good noise can make something.
I wish that the threat of Boko Haram re-opens the modern slavery topic in the international media.
Malala standing in solidarity with the girls.


  1. Good post, Zeinobia. Thank you.

  2. i think political or religious efforts will not free the girls .. we need military force to free them . but our military forces is too busy fighting for the political authority in egypt !
