Sufi Association says the continued captivity of Nigerian girls is an insult to Islam

(Vatican Radio)  The Sufi Alawiyya International Association (AISA) says the 200 plus schoolgirls kidnapped in Nigeria by the militant Islamic group Boko Haram must be released, calling their abduction “an insult to Islam.”  The communique released by the Association came exactly six months after the girls were seized by Boko Haram in the town of Chibok in north east Nigeria.  It said the fate of these girls “is “a shame and a disgrace to everyone endowed with a moral conscience.”  The association also said it is “particularly unacceptable and intolerable that a global coalition of political, religious and association leaders” has not succeeded in resolving “this disgrace.”  Describing Boko Haram as an “inhumane sect terrorizing Nigeria and neighbouring countries,” the Sufi association urges the members of the United Nations to convene on the sidelines of the General assembly a special session on this kidnapping issue.

Based in Paris, AISA is an NGO that seeks to promote peaceful co-existence, non–discrimination, cultural cooperation and mutual understanding of religions and human spirituality.
