Just reading about the new incidents of violence in Bauchi, Kano, Maiduguri and Yobe states. Apparently, these "Boko Haram" people don't want western education in Nigeria and they are fighting for that by attacking police men. In this day and age, it is shocking to find that people still think'like this. Of course the excuse they use is religion (Sharia). My question is why does Islam or what is it in Islam that so easily lends itself to extreme intolerance, fundamentalism and ultimately violence?? Can someone explain this please?
