Violent Extremism is becoming a major cause of concern in the world today especially in Africa. These so called Extremists have claimed many lives, they kill innocent citizens all because they want to exert their religious rights to the detriment of others.
Over the last two months in Nigeria, Muslim Extremists have killed many Christians all because they are fighting for their religion, first it was in Kano where an innocent Trader told some muslim men to stop praying in front of her shop which she paid for and this angered the muslims in that market who attacked, killed and slaughtered her neck like a goat. This is the highest order of barbarism and savagery. She has right as the owner of her shop to chase out any unwanted visitor but this is was not okay with the Extremists who felt that they have right to pray and perform their religious rites anywhere. That is so absurd.
The Kano incident was still all over the news when we heard of the murder of yet another Christian woman who was preaching and doing her early morning evangelism somewhere in Abuja and yet these Extremists were not comfortable with this and it warranted for her murder. She was brutally butchered like a stock fish and these people have no remorse. After all, she has her freedom of speech and expression. If she was disturbing them, they should have reported her to the relevant Authorities and not by taking laws into their hands. This is so disheartening.
Another report also summoned of some muslim youths numbering about 200 who attacked, scattered and destroyed a Catholic church because it held  service on friday which was an official praying day for muslims. This made these Extremists to scatter and destroy a church. Because friday is your prayer day does not stop others from practising their religion on that day.
That is not all, one can even recall the various sharia riots that took place in kaduna in 2001, 2002 where many Christians lost their lives, even in Jos the same trend is happening.
These violent Extremism is also a Global phenomenon as the activities of various terrorist Groups like ISIS, Al Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Boko Haram attest to this. One can trace the foundation of all these madness to the 1804 so called Sokoto Jihad in which Othman Danfodio championed.
With all these facts on ground, Nobody can convince that islam is not a radical religion, we have heard continuous talks from muslim clerics who claim that islam is a peaceful religion but yet people are killed daily in the name of Allah, churches are destroyed, christians are killed daily, even in the World at large, Christian Nations are attacked daily, check out the latest Terrorist attack in Nice France which led to the loss of 84 lives.
The most intriguing fact to note is that upon all these attacks, christians hardly retaliate, they continually fall victims of Extremist attack. Can we  just imagine how the world will become if christians decide to retaliate, if they decide to form Christian terrorist Organization, the world will simply become a theatre of war where there will be no victor or vanquish.
I strongly appeal to all muslim Clerics and faithfuls Worldwide, that if you wnaat to really convinve me tha Islam is a peaceful religion, then look for a way to stop all these acts of Extremism, preach to all ypur fellow muslim brothers and sisters to stop fighting fof Allah and that if Allah is trupy a god, He shoupd fight for himslef and not act cowardly.
