Boko Haram targets un-Islamic practices and institutions. They just attacked a beer garden in Maiduguri about two weeks ago, but only killed four that time. The group again lives up to the Ayatollah Khomeini’s pronouncement that:
“Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.”
And Boko Haram seems to share Khomeini’s mentality from this quotation as well:
“If one permits an infidel to continue in his role as a corrupter of the earth, his moral suffering will be all the worse. If one kills the infidel, and this stops him from perpetrating his misdeeds, his death will be a blessing to him.”
And so over two dozen dead bodies are ever so preferable to the intolerable specter of people enjoying themselves on a hot summer Sunday evening. “Deadly bombing in north Nigeria,” from BBC News, June 26:
A bomb attack in the north-eastern Nigerian town of Maiduguri has killed at least 25 people and wounded many more, officials say.
They say they believe the attack, which occurred in a beer garden, was carried out by the Islamic sect Boko Haram.
The group believes Muslims should withdraw from Western society.
It has claimed a number of bombings in north-eastern Nigeria, as well as an attack on police headquarters in the capital Abuja earlier this month.
Two men on motorcycles attacked a packed beer garden late on Sunday, officials said.
“The attackers believed to be Boko Haram members threw bombs and fired indiscriminate gunshots,” a police officer told AFP news agency.
