Boko Haram

Boko Haram Aslam Abdulla,Ph.D, Vice president of MCA Boko Haram has violated all religious and civil norms of humanity by abducting over 200 girls with the intention to sell them as slaves. It is a group that claims to be Islamic, yet in the eyes of Muslims it has nothing to do with Islam.
