Over 300 “students” at an Islamic boarding school in Nigeria were freed following a police raid last week as the captives showed signs of torture, starvation, and rape. The school’s owner and six others were arrested.
Men and boys as young as nine were found at the school with over 100 of them chained. Their scars and wounds indicated abuse. Their gaunt bodies showed the effects of starvation. Many claimed to have been raped by the men as part of homosexual rituals to teach them the Koran.
Parents of the students who were notified of the raid expressed shock at their sons’ conditions. Those who were able to visit them were never allowed in the facilities and their children were too frightened to inform their parents about the torture.
Shocking images from the Islamic school show rows of the male students wearing ankle shackles, while some also have their hands chained together. Other photos show the torture victims with horrific scars on their backs.
One victim described how previous students had died from being tortured.
Parents have since been reunited with some of the children rescued by police at the Hajj transit camp in Kaduna.
The various religions have their differences, and I’ve had no problem expressing how my Christian beliefs differ from Islam. I cringe when I hear about the separation between “radical” and otherwise “normal” Islam because the distinctions are artificial. True Koranic Islam is more aligned with what many in the west consider to be radical.
This situation is not like that. The monsters who ran this school do not properly represent Islam. They weren’t teaching the Koran. They were running an operation designed to pleasure themselves and destroy the hearts and minds of those they were charged with teaching.
Do not call this radical Islam. It’s an abomination even in the eyes of Muslims. We can have our differences of opinion regarding religion, salvation, and the Holy Land, but lucid members of any religion can recognize what these men were doing at this school had no real attachment to any religion. The Koran was simply a tool to hide their heinous activities.
“They claim to be teaching us Quran and Islam, but they do a lot of things here. They subject the younger ones to homosexuality.” – Bello Hamza
Every religion has its share of abusers who pervert their beliefs and hide their sins behind them. This situation goes far beyond anything we’ve seen in modern times, hidden in plain sight as a disgusting reminder of the evils of this world.
