“But Nigerians need to know that this move was calculated to hurt the Muslim population and may end up as a disservice to the nation. The average Northerner cannot read any other script except in Arabic Ajami and anyone who wants to communicate with him effectively must use the Ajami, not even writings in the Hausa language can help in this matter. Millions of Northerners have therefore been marginalized by removing the Arabic Ajami from Jonathan’s poor quality N100 note and Obasanjo’s N5, N10, N20 and N50 denominations” . Ishaq Akintola the Director of MURIC
Is that statement not derogatory to the Northerners? Is it not condescending? That is a foolish statement to make. But it seems anything done under the banner of religion is acceptable.
This man, Ishaq Akintola’s head needs to be examined. The man is losing his mind and it seems no one is paying attention.
The Professor went further to prove to us that though you may be educated yet still mentally enslaved. Listen to him:
“The removal of Arabic Ajami is being interpreted as an attempt to discourage the learning and use of Arabic language which is the language of the Glorious Qur’an. It is a sensitive religious matter. Nobody can do this in Nigeria and expect the Muslims to organize a carnival for him. But as usual, our leaders manifest the noun ‘deaf’ and the verb ‘to ignore’
Here Ishaq Akintola is trying to tell us the importance of the Arabic language. He is telling us that Arabic language is a special language, an exalted language because it is the language of the Glorious Quran. Sad!
There is nothing wrong in adopting another people’s culture or religion but one must ensure it is done consciously and deliberately and never lose oneself in the process.
I have always known that education or age has nothing to do with sound reasoning when it comes to religion. Many times it is the educated and supposedly grown people that act like toddlers. Now who is going to teach the Prof that he is being deceived that Arabic is a special language? Who is going to teach the prof that the Arabs in order to pursue their interest and superiority deliberately claimed that Arabic is a glorious language and one that will be spoken in heaven? Who is going to teach a Prof that doesn’t promote any Nigerian language but promotes a foreign language on the basis of religion that he has been brainwashed’.
I have said it many times and I will continue to say it:
It is foolish to believe that the Jews are chosen people of God.
It is foolish to believe that Arabic is a glorious language that will be spoken in heaven.
So Arabic is synonymous with Islam?
Is this not the same mentality that would make some people lynch someone because the person is ‘desecrating’ an Arabic magazine.
Some people see the Arabic language as a holy language. And it is the business of someone like me to make you see it as an ordinary language being promoted to a special language by the owners of the language to enslave you.
Think of this: there is no way you will see Arabic language as a special language and not see the Arabs as a special people. Think of it.
One of my literature teachers in secondary school told me that the most important feature of drama is conflict. He said conflict is the life of a drama.
In a drama, you have a protagonist and antagonist and if a writer does not create one, the reader will create one. There is that person the reader wants to succeed and there is that individual that the reader wants to fail.
The readers or spectators of a play see the characters differently. Someone’s protagonist may be another’s antagonist. However, there are instances where majority, if not all, will consider a particular character as the villain or hero of the play. In this instance, anyone with a contrary view will have a lot to explain and must be ready to face the consequence of seeing things differently.
I need to state it clearly that Facebook is a drama. Everyday I come here I see drama. I see characters. I must confess that I do know I am a character too, although, I am less a character than I am in real life. So if you think you are seeing a crazy character, especially, to those who are not too familiar with me, know that you are just starting.
Here on Facebook, I have found myself supporting an idea and sometimes antagonising an idea. However, there are instances, I am neither supporting nor antagonising it.
Take for instance, the idea of feminism especially as being propagated by some Nigerians has consistently put me in an uncomfortable situation.
When you have a mum like mine, who I consider one of the most intelligent beings that ever walked this earth (the account of her great deeds will be compiled in a book in future). When you have intelligent and caring sisters like mine, whom I learnt many things from. When you have always had beautiful, intelligent and caring female friends all your life. When you have been in a class where females take the lead positions and have been dedicated to their studies as much as you were, then it will be impossible for you to see a woman as inferior. The idea itself will look ridiculous.
In the same vein, when your environment and experiences have shown that a woman, like a man has equal rights as much as a man. When You work in a company, where there is no discrimination based on gender or other differences and a woman can be overall head of the company, then you will find it ridiculous how some women shamelessly paint our society as a bestial society where men are beasts who treat women like a lesser animal.
No doubt, our experiences have a huge impact on our orientation and how we view life. My experience doesn’t make me see women as inferior and doesn’t make me see men as vicious as some bittered women under the disguise of feminism try to paint men.
As a result of the aforementioned, sometimes, I find it hard to bare my view on the issues of feminism. This is because, the original feminism idea has been bastardised by some immatured, disturbed, and woke wannabes women.
Most often, this category of woke wannabes are rude, vulgar, uncultured, and people suffering from absence of love by their parents and environment.
I think they are not stupid nor crazy but deserve some love
