Protest in Kano Over Anti-Islam Movie

Published

on

Not less than ten thousand Nigerians today protested on the streets of Nigeria’s city of Kano against an anti-Islam film made in the US.

The crowd of demonstrators stretched several kilometres through the city with protesters shouting “death to America, death to Israel and death to the enemies of Islam”.

There had earlier been protests in Zaria, Kaduna state and an attempt to stage one in the volatile city of Jos was broken with the security agencies firing shots into the air to dismiss the demonstrators.

The rally was being organised by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, a pro-Iranian group that adheres to the Shiite branch of Islam, which has operated in Africa’s most populous country since the late 1970s.

Muhammed Turi, a member of the Islamic Movement and one of the protest leaders said, “We are out today to express our rage and disapproval over this blasphemous film. This protest is also aimed at calling on the US government to put a halt to further blasphemy against Islam,” he added.

Demonstrators carried pictures of US President Barack Obama, as well as American and Israeli flags as they marched towards a palace owned by the Emir of Kano.

The low-budget film “Innocence of Muslims,” has incited a wave of bloody anti-American protest in cities across some Islamic countries.
The same protest led to the death of American ambassador to Libya. In Pakistan yesterday, 21 people were reported dead in protests in Karachi. Overall, 23 people have been killed in Pakistan during protests over the past week.

    I wonder why they tagged Islam as a religion for peace rather a religion for violence. Can one actually fight for God who is a supreme being. If they somuch trust in the ability of Muhammed, why can’t they allow Him do the fight himself? Opinion divided.

    Islam is all about violence. About thirty people has lost their lives due to a poorly made movie int the US including a US ambassador. Does that connot a religion of peace? nope, but a religion of piss. Christians dont go about burning stuffs when Christ is insulted, that shows peace! Our God is not some lazy moon gif that lives in the kabba and understands only Arabic.

    lets call a spade a spade..and leave religious sentiment.wat was d motive of d film? Was it to make peace or war? Donot oppress and Dont b oppressed. Americans av caused alot of havoc in dis world and we stil support them. Dey av hands in d world’s evil we stil back them.dont 4 get dat americans are nt majorly christians or muslims bt y do dey attack d muslims always?wats hinderance are dey facing 4rm d muslims.wen a man dies 4 his country we say he his a patroit bt wen a man dies 4 his religion he his termed a terrorist. Until we stop lookin at d differences bt our religion and focus on common lessons,then we live in peace. They might change gear 2morow turn to oda religion and see wat wil happen den. God forgive us all.

    there are other religion in the world apart from Islam,and it is ovious that every religious violence must linked to Islam.every sensible human must understand that peace is the ultimate,God is love,meek and forgiven.but the devil always come to thief cause violence steal cause bitterness and sorrow in the heart of innocent ones.did any of you protesters sees any Naija man among the movie actors.it is time for you guys to wakeup think twice embrace peace and love so that the whole world will be a better place.

    @ Muslims, Is ur Muhammad dead? If u believe he is alive, why are u pple so interested in sucking bloods of d innocent pple? Recently an advert was made mocking our Lord Jesus Christ in S/Africa did u hear of any Christian shedding blood b/cos of dis? Believers believes dat Jesus lives forever. He has power to convert those dat mocked Him or punish them. Jesus is Lord, therefore no body can fight for Him, only a weak God or prophet needs pple to fight on his behalf bcos he needs blood to kip moving. May God help u pple.

Muslims across d world protested against a film against our prophet and all u would say here is dat muslims should fold dea arms and watch. But wen xtians fought innocent hausa pple and destroyed dea properties after kaduna church bombings, they were right. Remember, d bible said if anyone slaps u turn d other cheek towards him/her.

    A lot of Muslim coverts have not only said that Islam is a religion of peace but it is satanic. A religion that cannot create life but destroys life under the guise of fighting for a supreme God. My fellow brother and sister take sometime to study on how this religion came to existence. Prophet Mohammed, when he started getting his revelation, he told his wife he was possessed and that if he told people his visions, they would think he was mad. Can you imagine the source, if his vision was that polluted, what do you think about his followers. Its an irony to say Islam is a religion of peace.

    If you think you can use a mouth created for you by Almighty Allah to blastphem , fellow man i tell you remember when you are nothing as at when common ant can get on your spine and delete your whole life off existence, but he guided you and groom you so that you can dediuce right from wrong and know that devil is your worse enermy how much do you deny his blessing. you fall as sleep without remembring your single gold and silver which he has bless you with and you even treasured this wealth more your than your lord at times for if he so which you can fall at sleep without you returning to those wealth you use your whole life to accumulate, but he bring you back to life after sleep so that you can know that he is supreme and that he can do all things, but how much do you deny your lord. he created Man from dust, Jinn from fire and angels from light just for them to worship him, brother take heed if you cannot say the truth you keep quite. not even you can watched your parents been insulted to talk about your most beloved on earth, you can die and fight for a just course if only you know Allah. Islam is the most peaceful religion and the religion of truth if only you care for your existence and if only you care to know. Among people are those whom some pursue their interest under the banner of islam, i cant because of them deny my beloved Muhammed , among Men are some whom are addicted lier which when they see black they call it white i cant deny the truth because of them, among Men are some whom take pleasure in evil than rigteousness and cause harm and intimidation to the truth . But the best of men are those whom are humble in prayer say and do what is good and avoid and stop people from doing what is bad and are always patient in all circumstance for in them you can found the true peace called Islam. Oh you mortal soul remember when you will be back into dust and and all your worldly investment will not be able to save you from the anger of Allah except by the same person you are blastpheming, i urge you to only say what you know is right, abd not what you will say because Allah just created mouth for you. oh FEAR ALLAH Astengfirillahi.

    It’s disheartenin dat d mentality of certain ppl is rada bizarre & myopic – tinkin with dia head upside down. D formal trainings dey tink dey went thru in lyf is questionabl. Wht hs patriotism got 2 do with terrorism? I wonder d kind of trainings or brainwashing dey gv dia younger 1s with dis kind of mentality? Y do dey protest in 9ja against a video film produced by a non-9ja? So dey can protest, yt dey allow BH 2 continue 2 unleash terror on d innocent? Hypocrites! Deceivers! If u want 2 die 4 a cause y don’t u go hang or set ursef ablaze & leave d innocent out of ur issue? D issue hs notin 2 do with supporting US. US hv alwys shown it’s a secular nation. U hide under d cover of religion & unleash terror. It’s only satanists & vampires dat approve, albeit subtly, d destruction & killings in d name of a god – a dead god dat nids mere mortals 2 fight 4 it! If wht u practise is true, y ar u reckoned with violence & destruction – a pain 2 d whole wide world? It’s tym 2 repent & turn frm ur wicked ways, no mata hw pious lookin & hw much versed u ar in quotes. Accept Jesus as ur Lord & Savior!

Avoid These Nigerians Food To Burn Stubborn Belly Fat (Video)

Published

on

Being overweight or obese can be detrimental to your health. It is not advisable to have excess fat in the abdominal cavity because it can lead to some health issues. Getting your dream body will not be easy and you need to make some sacrifices to your diet. You will also need to turn a blind eye to some fatty foods.

If you’re ready to get rid of the belly fat, then stay put as Information Nigeria brings you some important tips that will help.

1. Avoid sugar and carbonated drinks

Did you know that consuming sugary substances like coke, fanta can lead to weight gain and a number of health problems like high blood pressure?. This is due to the high fructose content found in added sugars. Taking sugar-filled drinks may slow your metabolism and this in turn can make it harder for your body to burn fat. Fructose can only be metabolized by your liver. When you consume too much, you push your liver to its limit and it becomes overloaded, then it turns the fructose into fat and it ends up getting stored in your belly. To avoid putting yourself from risk, you should cut back on foods and drinks that contain huge amounts of sugar.

 

2. You also have to forgo junk foods like meat pie, cakes, rolls, candies, burgers, ice cream and cookies. You also need to do away with heavy foods like eba, akpu, pounded yam, rice among others. Switch up your eating habits and opt for a more balanced-diet if you want to burn your belly fat. Avoid consuming refined carbs like bread, pizza, potation chips etc. You should also stay away from processed and heavy foods because they contribute to stubborn belly fat. You should choose to eat proteinous foods like fish, eggs, and milk. starch contains fat, sugar and salt. They help a person feel fuller so you don’t end up looking for something to munch on after eating. It basically keeps hunger at bay.

3. Eat the right amount of fruits, vegetables, fibrous foods and whole grains – You can add vegetables, fruits and whole grains to your weight loss diet. They provide essential vitamins, minerals, fiber and other substances that are good for your body. Examples of fibre rich foods include; beans, broccoli, avocados, apples, oatmeal brown rice and whole grain bread.

4. Try to incorporate exercise into your daily or weekly routine – Exercise helps to speed up your metabolism and helps you shed weight. The bitter truth is that wearing just waist trainers and staying put in one position will not make you lose that stubborn belly fat. You should hit the gym.

5 Reduce alcohol intake – Excess intake of alcohol also leads to a host of health problems especially the build-up of fat in the belly area. Have you ever noticed that those who drink alcohol, especially men, often develop ‘pot-bellies’. Alcoholic drinks like beer provide your body with calories and very little nutrients. It can also increase your appetite. Replace the alcoholic drinks with water or alternate with low calorie, non-alcoholic beverages. Too much alcohol can cause liver damage and other serious health problems.

6. Try out apple cider vinegar – Apple cider vinegar is made in a two-step fermentation process. It is obtained from apples that have been crushed, distilled and fermented. Acetic acid is the main active component of apple cider vinegar. It is safe for consumption in small quantities and can be taken as a supplement. Do not also consume it straight from the bottle or in its pure form. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons to water before you drink. You can also add honey or lemon. It is best to drink it before your meals. Research shows it has many health benefits, such as lowering blood sugar levels.
