This is a reminder for anyone who sees some sympathy with jihadis thinking they will drive the Americans or Indians away and then just leave us in peace. No. Actually, they have their own agenda and it is a backwards and brutal one. If you want some proofs, you must only look to other countries where jihadis have been able to seize power such as in Somalia.
Gunmen believed to be from a radical Islamic group in northeast Mogadishu, Somalia, shot two people dead during an impromptu raid on a house where people were watching a World Cup match Saturday night, Reuters reports.
A witness told reporters that masked militants “stormed into the house” and open fired at the World Cup viewers, killing two instantly. The militants rounded up about 10 other fans, but left the bodies in the home, the witness said.
The incident came on the heels of a national ban on viewing “un-Islamic” World Cup games made by the local militia group al Shabaab, which controls much of south and central Somalia by force. By al Shabaab’s logic, the championship interferes with the group’s plan to overthrow the government, because Somali citizens are too preoccupied with the games to fight on their behalf.
Other militant groups have also professed their disapproval of the World Cup.
“Football is an inheritance from the primitive infidels, and we can never accept people to watch it and we are directing a final warning to those who want to watch it,” said Sheikh Mohamed Abdi Aros, a spokesman for Hizbul Islam, a group which has reportedly raided homes and detained at least 30 other World Cup fans in Afgoye, about 18 miles south of Mogadishu. He did not specify how the group — which has also routinely banned music and dancing along with other sports — intended to enforce the ban.
How can this be following Sunnah or Quran? It cannot. This is pure evil to murder some innocent people for watching a football match on TV. Who are these self-appointed Mullahs to decide that this is haram and that punishment is death? Don’t tell me about America and India and Israel and every other place. Let them have their own problems. For me the fact is that there are some wicked people who are willing to commit horrible murders in order to take over our country. And if they ever had their way, do not believe that it would be some peaceful place.
