How are these haramis justifying the attack? What official reason have they given? Someone fill me in on that please.

I've read anything from a 'traffic incident' to the movement stopping the Chief of Army staff's convoy and attempting to assassinate him. The latter is the more likely official statement.

From what I have read, the MSM is ensuring that the number of the killed Shias does not go past the 'dozens' mark.

Anything more is 'claimed' by the shias, and not verified. The so-called western human right kings are merely calling for an investigation, no condemnation or sanctions.

As per the videos posted, there is no evidence that the shias pelted any stones or used sticks or anything else against the military, which explains the zero casualties among the latter.

There was an arguement though, but it does not mean killing dozens and then coming back to kill hundreds more, essentially unarmed people. There is no evidence that Sh. Zakzaky refused dialogue or asked the shias to indulge in violence. 

The main reason for the hundreds of shias is because of the formation of the human chain to protect Sh. Zakzaky after the first massacre. The government is mostly silent on the matter, possibly because the army is acting on its own. The situation is mostly calm now, but Sh Zakzaky and a number of shias are in custody, some of them injured.

The Nigerian Shias being mostly unarmed, just like most of the shia muslims across the world, are likely to be at the receiving end at the hands of the Nigerian army.

But then God alone is the one who observes everything and metes out severe punishment for the oppressors. There is always a limit to arrogance and oppression. It never lasts long and the ends of the oppressors are always horrible. Kindly recite Surah Fateha for the deceased and pray a two rakat namaz for relief for the Nigerian momins and the end of the oppression towards them.

Following is the statement from the commander of the operation (source):

How we engaged Shi’ite members, arrested El-Zakzaky, wife – Nigerian Army

The Shi’ite leader, Ibrahim El-Zakzaky, is safe and in protective custody in a very secured facility, his wife is safe and also in protective custody, the General Officer Commanding, 1 Mechanised Army Division, Kaduna, Adeniyi Oyebade, has said.

Speaking at a joint press conference with the Kaduna state Commissioner of Police, Umar Shehu, on Monday at the 1 Division headquarters in Kaduna, Mr. Oyebade, a Major General, defended the army’s action saying it is the responsibility of the security forces to bring law and order back to society within the rules of engagement.

He said: “The Shi’ite leader and his wife are safe and in protective custody even though I do not know how many wives he has since it was reported that his wife is dead and in the course of time, he, himself will be speaking to his members.

“You will recall that on the 12 of December, 2015, Mr. President and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces, Muhammadu Buhari, was in Kaduna state for the convocation of the Kaduna state University and the music festival at the Ahmadu Bello University which myself and the Commissioner of Police as well as staff officers also attended, including the Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai.

“Just after Mr President left Kaduna to Abuja after a successful official visit, I decided to go to Zaria to meet up with the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, who was to pay a courtesy visit on the Emir of Zazzau and also attend the passing out parade of our recruits in Deport Nigerian Army.

“He (COAS) was coming in from Dutse, because that same week, we held the COAS conference in Dutse, in Jigawa State. He got to Zaria at about 14.30 hours (2.30pm) and the advance security team had cleared the road up to and including the city centre. There was no problem. The same security team made a U-turn to now bring in the COAS’ convoy which is our normal security routine whenever we are escorting our boss.

“But shockingly enough, members of the Shi’ite sect, lead by El-Zakzaky, blocked the Sokoto road to be precise and we found that that was unusual, but because we thought that they were being overzealous so two senior officers in the COAS’ convoy came down from their vehicles appealing to these hoodlums to please clear the road so that the COAS can go ahead with his scheduled programme.

 

“All entreaties, appeals to this Shi’ite sect members, in their hundreds, refused to budge. It got to the point that they started throwing dangerous missiles, stones, machete and all kinds of traditional or crude weapons I would say at the COAS convoy.

“It was at that point that it dawned on the security forces, especially the bodyguards of the Chief, including our quick response group stationed in Zaria, that this was not something that happened spontaneously. It was in our calculation premeditated and of course whenever any VIP or any facility is under our charge, we must secure that person or the property, in this case, the COAS. And it came to the quick conclusion of the security forces that the life of the COAS was under threat and they had no other option than to force their way through the blockage including the use of lethal weapons.

“That is allowed within the rules of engagement. As if that was not enough, as he was moving through, they we mobilizing in their hundreds. Thankfully, the COAS was able to wade through these hoodlums and went on to pay homage to the Emir before getting to Deport Nigerian Army.

“While this was going on, recall I said we had just seen off the president in company of the CP, I got a report from my commanders in Zaria of what was happening and of course, I started racing to the scene to find out exactly what was happening. But thankfully, by the time I got there the COAS had passed through. But then, we got reports that the Shi’ite members where mobilizing across Zaria in their various enclaves, shrines or what have you.

“As the GOC of 1 Division I take that very seriously that the life of the COAS is under threat and within the rules of engagement permissible by law, I had to bring the forces available to me to bring the situation under control and that was exactly what I did. But because we are operating in a city, we also informed the police of what was happening and they also provided the mobile police force to be able to restore law and order.

“My initial orders to the security agencies were just to keep everywhere cool and calm but little did we know that we were in for a bloody night. As you all know, the Shi’ite members numbered in their thousands and they were mobilizing and attacking security forces across Zaria.

“Again within the rules of engagement, we had to use the force available to bring it down and that was exactly what we did. Quite a number of our security forces were also casualties in this dastardly act by the sect so also some members of the Shi’ite sect. And because of the report we had that they were mobilizing at their three key strong points including the big temple called the Hussaniyya, the area occupied by the sect leader in Gyelleus and another temple somewhere on Danbo road, I decided that I had to bring the situation under control by securing those three sites.

“In the course of this engagement, of course there were casualties, there were also causalities among the security forces. In that operation, I made one categorical statement to my men, we must within the rules of our engagement make sure as much as it was feasible then to bring in the leader of the sect alive. We do not want him dead. He is a citizen of Nigeria. But we felt that, given the raging violence in the city, it was important that we bring him into protective custody. At about 9.15 today (yesterday) morning we successfully executed that.

“I want to send a message across all the Shi’ite members across the length and breadth of Nigeria especially in North-West zone under my charge, I urge them to keep the peace, I urge them to be law abiding, I urge them not to offer violence to members of the security forces, I urge them to go about their activities peacefully,’ he said.

He accused the sect of denying the communities surrounding their shrines freedom, adding that “I want to assure them that the security forces have nothing against the sect and in fact, I see them as my brothers and sister for the simple reason that we are all Nigerians and we all have the same rights under the law.”

Thanks @sayedzeeshan . They blame Shias led by Shaykh Zakzaky of trying to stir a riot and putting their COAS's life in danger. 

Do we have an alternative version from an independent source?

Btw, calling hussainiyah a "temple" betrays their views about Shi'ism couched in politically correct language.

Shias get genocides by terrorists, no white people care, a white rock star in paris dies, every one changes their profile pic on Facebook. Then they blame Islam for being a religion which orders you to kill white people. Most extremists are killing shias not whites.

We are not the Shia Movement of Nigeria; we are the Islamic Movement of Nigeria
By Nusaibah Ibraheem El Zakzaky

 
      I am not a Shia Muslim, I am just a Muslim, and NOTHING comes before the name Muslim. We Muslims should not accept names like that. Names that segregates us into different types of Islam, there is only one type of Islam brought by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his Family).

       We Muslims shouldn’t accept names like Shia Muslim, Sunni Muslim, Nigerian Muslim, American Muslim, modern Muslim, contemporary Muslim, moderate Muslim and so on.

    Its really unfortunate and disappointing how I see some of our brothers and sisters referring to what happened in Zaria as a massacre of Shiites, as if these people (The Nigerian government and Army) attacked us because we gravitate to the Shia school of thought. As if there are no other people in Nigeria that gravitate towards the same school of thought but were not attacked.
 
     When this movement started, most of the people in it gravitated to the Sunni school of thought, none the less the government attacked them just like they are attacking us now. They imprisoned them just the same, and viewed them as a threat to their unjust and corrupt ways. Why? Because we seek to end their oppression of the Nigerian people. If we behaved just like most people in this country who say nothing about the corruption and the oppression we all suffer, then we will live in "peace" , as much peace anyway as you can live in a country where we have no rights, not even basic human rights.


     My father has never identified himself as a leader of a sect, or the Islamic movement as a sect. The Islamic movement’s main agenda was to fight the injustice of the system that we are forced to live under in this country. Anyone from anywhere including non-Muslims are welcome to join our struggle.

 
   At the end of the day, whatever school of thought we gravitate towards, we all want to be doing exactly what Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family) brought to us.
 
    We where only weeks from celebrating 'usboo9ul wa7da', a week when all muslims from all walks of lives are invited to celebrate what we have in common rather than our differences. Don't let what happened make you forget the valuable lessons we have learned from this week over the years.


   When my three brothers were killed last year, they were demonstrating in solidarity with the Palestinian people (most of whom gravitate towards the Sunni school of thought). They weren’t killed because they happen to follow the Shia school of thought, they were killed because they were fighting for the oppressed, The authority figures in Nigeria felt threatened by that because they are oppressors themselves, otherwise why would a peaceful protest drive you to shoot unarmed people and let them bleed to death for hours.  


     This is not a Shia massacre, this was a massacre period.  And everyone in the world should be outraged by it, including non-Muslims and especially Nigerians. If your government or people sworn to protect you, like the army can kill you for a petty reason like a road blockade, and even release a video that in their mind can justify the death of hundreds if not thousands of people, what else do you think they can kill you for? If you don’t speak against this, someday this will happen to you and then who will speak for you?

:bismillah:

My heart burns, and  words seem insufficient to express my grief at this great calamity. 

Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi's statement in solidarity with the Nigerian brothers.

As expected, a nasibi Wahhabi cannibal online mercenary on Saudi payroll comes licking the feet of his petro-dollar masters like an obedient pet, justifying their actions, and thus confirming who are the actual masterminds behind this heinous incident.

What these Ummayyads reincarnated and products of Yazeed (la'een)'s pleasure-bed need to understand is that no matter how much they bomb us or massacre us, we will continue to grow; the message of Ahlul Bayt(asws) and the Light of Allah(swt) will continue to spread, as is happening in Nigeria. The Zahoor of Imam al-Hujjah(aj) shall be the final nail in their coffin .

[..], he was detained. Nobody was killed. Anyways that is price you pay if you try spreading Iranian agenda and turning the region into Persian Empire. We all know how it starts, you try spreading your ideology until you become at least 10%. Then with Western support you take the country into civil war and try conquering it. No more of that. 

 

Stupid meme, Iran's leaders could care less about Israel. Obama is their best friend. You should be thanking Obama..[inappropriate language removed]

Dear all---Sheikh Zak Zaky has a total of 9 children--7 sons and 2 daughters.

6 out of 7 of his sons have become Shaheed--Last year 4 of them became shaheed when they were rallying in the annual Al-Quds Day Rally

Free Zakzaky: Impressive Prophet Birthday Held by Shias, Sunnis in Bauchi, Nigeria / Photos

Ahlul Bayt News Agency - On Thursday 24 December 2015 morning hundreds of thousands of Muslims trooped to various streets of Bauchi to celebrate the birthday of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). As usual, the procession began in Kobi football pitch where the participants started ambulating around the town. There was a widespread acceptance of the programme this year as people from every nook and cranny were filled with joyful sense of camaraderie and love for the Holy Prophet.

The entire city was grounded due to the inability of the vehicles to move around. Moreover, dozens of youth groups, Islamic schools had liaised with the Riayala Committee which is set up by the government to ensure a hitch -free programme.

Thanks to gallant efforts of the committee, there was no noticeable problem recorded during the exercise. On the part of the followers of Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky, the mood was different from the previous exercises because apart from the celebrations, their hearts were filled with resentments over the kind of repression being meted out to their fellow members and the continued detention of their spiritual leader Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky.

His house, graveyards, and their famous sanctuary, Hussainiyya Baqiyyatullah were all demolished and desecrated. Soldiers have also killed more than one thousand of his members including three (3) more of his children.

All these atrocities were committed against them despite the fact that they have never carried arms against the state. During the procession, a lot of people had commiserated with the members over the heavy losses of lives. They also strongly spoke out against the continued detention of Sheikh Ibrahim Zakzaky who is being held by the Nigerian security forces. It could be recalled that since the fateful day of the massacre on 12 December, various human rights groups have denounced the barbaric massacre.

Some of the Sunni sympathisers who took part in the procession had informed us that Zakzaky deserved emotional solidarity because he lost his six children, his house demolished, his followers were massacred in broad daylight before his sanctuary which took years to build was demolished.

" I carry this placard to add my voice over the need to immediately release Sheik Zakzaky because the scholar isn't a criminal" Said one sympathiser who did not want his name published. Some of the scribbled messages are " The truth can't be suppressed with bullets", "Zakzaky must be freed", "FREE ZAKZAKY ".

The photos of his six slain children were also displayed on the procession.

Why are we protesting?
 
On Dec. 12th, 2015, in an apparent premeditated attack, Sheikh Ibrahim al-Zazaky, a Shia Muslim leader in Nigeria has been attacked at his residence. The wounded Sheikh along with wife and children were abducted by the notorious Nigerian Army. The daughter recently released has confirmed the Martyrdom of the “Three” sons of Sheikh Al-Zakzaky along with many of his followers. Initial reports from Zaria also alluded to the murder of his wife yet refuted by the Nigerian Military. This tragic news comes on the heels of the assault on the Hussainiya Baqiyatullah, in which scores of Shia Muslims were killed by the Nigerian Army units under the pretext that members of the Hussainiya initiated an attack on the army chief's convoy with the intention to assassinate him - a charge vehemently denied by Sheikh al-Zakzaky. The Hussainiya was also later demolished by the Nigerian Government. The unconfirmed death toll is said to be in the thousands.
 
In a Press Release issued today, Dec. 23rd, 2015 the Islamic Human Rights Commission has confirmed that the Nigerian Army has also demolished the grave of the Sheikh’s Mother in an attempt to eradicate all signs and symbols of the Islamic Movement.

Sheikh al-Zakzaky has been instrumental in successfully leading the Nigerian Muslims in a peaceful and non-violent approach towards Islamic self-determination and battling rampant corruption. Consequently he has faced violence and has been incarcerated on multiple occasions in the past. Last year he had also suffered the loss of three of his children as they were gunned down after Quds Day demonstrations. The atrocities committed against our brothers and sisters in Nigeria are unconscionable, We the Chicago Community of Shia Muslims calls on all people of conscience to stand up against this act of oppression and tyranny.
 
“Those who are silent when others are oppressed are guilty of oppression themselves.”- Imam Husayn (a.s.)

The satanist forces have shot themselves in their foot.

Now all that the nigerian brothers and the muslims need to do is nothing, but protest peacefully. The oppression and the propaganda of the satanists will be exposed on their own.

Those affiliated with the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) are not militants, they are not violent, they dont have a hidden agenda, they are not like boko haram. They are normal people, who simply wanted to commemorate the Holy Prophet and his Holy Family. All that the satanist elements of the Nigerian army claimed, has been proved untrue.

They know that they have lost, which is why, they are destroying the shia masjids. It is like an addcition. They are coming to their senses and now want dont want to live in a real world where oppressors lose. They want to stay in their own imaginary world where the IMN is an apostate organisation, the masjids are temples, the shias are trying to take over Nigeria militarily and ideologically etc. By destroying the masjids they are trying to get their fix. 

The more peaceful the IMN protests are, the deeper will be the wound on the satanists.

Kevin Barrett's take on the Nigerian massacre

Quote

What we just saw in Nigeria was vastly worse than anything that the governments of places like Libya and Syria have done, marching on a peaceful religious group and just murdering hundreds and hundreds of people indiscriminately for no reason. Yet we are told in the West that we have this R2P responsibility to protect, meaning that the West has to go and bomb any countries that try to maintain an independent foreign policy and refuse to accept their vassal status.
