Kenya: Muslim Cleric Advocating Peace Is Brutally Beaten By Muslim ‘Youth’ For Peaceful Purposes


The ironies of the “Religion of Peace” would almost be funny if they weren’t so deadly …

Qur’an Sura 4:76a, “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah …”

Revelation 13:15, “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”

By Calvin Onsarigo and Alloys Musyoka, allAfrica – “Mombasa Muslim Association chairman Shaahid Sheikh was on Thursday attacked by radical Muslim youths at the troubled Sakina mosque in Mombasa’s Majengo area.

Shaahid, a trustee of the mosque, was assaulted after Maghrib prayers. He was rushed to hospital seriously injured.

Worshippers at Sakina said Shaahid had delivered a message opposing the wave of radicalisation and the forceful takeover of mosques by youths preaching ‘jihad sermons’.

Shaahid had called media houses for a press conference to be held after the evening prayer at the mosque. Mombasa CID boss Nyaga Gachugi said the matter has been reported at Makupa police station and is being investigated.

‘The youths were angered by the sheikh’s statement and attacked him as he left the mosque. But he was rescued and whisked away,’ he said.

Anti-Terrorism Police Unit officers are profiling six key leaders alleged to be behind the recent upsurge in radicalisation in Mombasa and Kisauni mosques.

On Monday, a radical youth from Majengo, 34-year-old Jamal Salim Mwangi, turned himself in to police after he claimed ATPU officers were trailing him.

Police confirmed that Salim was under police surveillance for allegedly recruiting youths to fight alongside Somalia’s al Qaeda-linked al Shabaab.” Read more.
