Nigeria: “They asked ‘are you Muslim or Christian?’ I told them I was Christian, and they intensified the beating” By Robert Spencer

Jihad Watch : This is reminiscent of other incidents, including when a Muslim in Minnesota asked mall shoppers if they were Muslim and then stabbed non-Muslims.
In Burkina Faso in November 2021, Muslims asked villagers if they were Christian or Muslim, then killed the Christians. In the Philippines in
February 2019, Muslims murdered a man for failing to recite Qur’an
verses, while releasing six others who could recite them.
In May 2018 in Belgium, a Muslim who murdered
four people told a hostage that he wouldn’t harm her since she was Muslim and was observing the Ramadan fast. In September 2018 in Kenya, Muslims murdered two non-Muslims for failing to recite the Qur’an. In Mozambique in June 2021, Muslims were hunting for Christians door-to-door.

01/16/2022 Nigeria (International Christian Concern) –
Twitter user @JoelMaiwada recently shared the events of his January 9th
kidnapping, when Fulani militants ambushed his vehicle in Jos, Nigeria.
According to Maiwada, he was driving with his brother and niece when
their vehicle was forced to stop. “We couldn’t even move, so I stepped
out,” he shared. “They started beating me with their gun handles and
sticks, pushed me back to the car and they started robbing me, meanwhile
my brother and my niece hid somewhere when the terrorists were after
“Then, they asked me ‘are you a Muslim or a Christian?’ In Hausa
language and I told them I was a Christian, then they said ‘you have
entered our hand’, and they intensified the beating.” The militants then forced Maiwada to trek towards a cave where they would be keeping him.
“We climbed mountains, walked in Valleys at nights, I almost fell off
a cliff, but they still don’t care, they said it’s a win win because
they will sell my organs if I fall and die.” Eventually, Maiwada was able to call his family, who raised over $24,000 to secure his release. “I want to Appreciate God for coming through for me,” he said.
Several twitter users responded to Maiwada’s thread with support and
prayers. Many shared that they or their family members had also been
kidnapped by Fulani militants…. “After, some people will come and say there’s no jihad agenda,” said
one twitter user. Maiwada replied, “Well, they clearly have an agenda
and it’s clearly working and they are so proud of it, telling me no one
can stop them.”
