ONLY the poor in Northern Nigeria, gets punished under Sharia laws. Northern elites flaunt the laws with impunity

Someone has been sentenced to death by the Sharia Court in Kano for blasphemy against Prophet Muhammed. This ruling is akin to BokoHaram’s ideology. The average Northern Muslim is a low key Boko Haram supporter and a full blown Islam extremist.

Sharia in a secular state is a recipe for religious strife
Kano blasphemy law is state sponsored religious terrorism
If you are a Muslim and you justify this nonsense then you are a terrorist and you must take no offense when your religion is likened to terrorism

Lol, Sharia warlord.
Your prophet is so weak & imbecilic to fight for himself, that he needs people to be slaughtered when they insult him.
Is it like a fulfilment of a blood oath?

What's the difference between Sharia and Boko Haram. That is the court indirectly giving power to Boko Haram

We have a president that's a supporter of Sharia, frees Boko Haram members and has threatened fire and brimstone.
State Governors that are known fanatics and negotiate with bandits… Bro, I'd be shocked if you're surprised.
