Boko haram is a hausa-Arabic phrase which means Education is bad



Re: What is the meaning of Boko Haram Reply by Halima on Saturday July 23, 2011 at 13:34:50:

It is simple:
Boko means book
Haram means bad
So, Boko Haram implies that learning at school is bad but they are really referring to Western schools and not Arabic schools. Their desire is to find it easier to recruit undeducated people into their terrorist operations. Truth is if more people were educated in states like Borno, things like Boko Haram would eventually die off. No enlightened person would be supporting what these people are currently doing but somehow I still think it is just to unsettle Jonathan's regime. They are not for real - Just a political distraction. The army should just go to Borno and other violent states in northern Nigeria to finish what the police had already started, shikena!

boko haram are two arabic word which mainly focuses on the western education that it is bad to study book, though tracing its meaning does not realy specify, but from history it kick against anything like going to school, studying books, etc.
As someone is planning for growth, some are standing as obstacle. May God help us

If they say book is bad,why are they using western education materials for violence: such as gun,danament and other dangerous weapon,they better use there hands. Let them allow those that need to be educated to have it.

Re: What is the meaning of Boko Haram Reply by Alli on Wednesday December 7, 2011 at 8:11:52:

That is a good question. They say they are boko haram but their leaders are actually educated, then it is nothing but hypocrisy. They just want Jonathan to settle them the same way they settled Niger delta militants. It's all about the money really.
Another thing that Jonathan or our Fed govt should do is strengthen our borders close to Niger and Chad. If possible, we can build something like the chinese wall to strengthen our boundary. If we have good border monitoring system as well as a good immigration service who would be periodically checking illegal aliens from time to time as they do in the US, boko haram would not be a powerful as they now seem. We just need to commit to security and not just be sharing money at Abuja.
The problem is that our politicians may be too greedy and this would make it easy for Boko Haram to cause civil war in Nigeria. If our politicians can be honest and vote more money into security, Nigeria would be safer.

Re: What is the meaning of Boko Haram Reply by Jaramogi on Tuesday December 27, 2011 at 6:48:3:

This group Boko Haram did not exist when Nigeria had president Abubakar Tafa Belewa. So unless you have a muslim president, Boko Haram will not cool down. Boko Haram means western education is sin. Another solution for peace is to divide the country along religious line; south as a Christian state and north as Hausa-Fulani dominated Islamic state. The fight between Christian and Muslims was a reason the then Eastern Nigeria declared independent as Biafra under Ojoku.

I can term their evil doing as act of illiteracy,mean while, they are against western education while they are using western materials for their weapon, even the cloths they wear are equally westerns, I wonder why people lack sense of reasoning, Boko haram or whatever they call their names, If there is no solution for your evil doing, I precisely believe that our supreme God is watching us. Thanks.

Re: What is the meaning of Boko Haram Reply by HEPHZIBAH JOHN.OLU. on Sunday January 22, 2012 at 21:56:44:

The saying Boko Haram comes from two word viz
Boko means =studying or Education while
Haram means =Evil act or Bad did. By combining this word together it means studying is act of Evil or Education is Bad. But generally this people kick against western education but give room for Islamic education why?. If not that they practice racism. If education is bad they shouldnt have permit any. To me, it show the level of their illiteracy it is not bad anyway; God is fighting them yet they do not know it,let me tell you, the so called Boko Haram, you are fighting and killing yourself over there,you are decreasing yet never know it. That is very Good anyway.BYE, I REMAIN HEPHZIBAH.

Re: What is the meaning of Boko Haram Reply by Chika on Saturday January 28, 2012 at 11:6:12:

Boko Haram's strength lies in Nigeria's porous borders particularly in the north. It is through those borders that we have terrorists smuggling bombs and explosives like sodium nitrites. We have a lot of suicidal aliens in our midst from Chad, Niger and Somalia. Just check our borders well or if possible, build something like the Chinese wall to better monitor our borders between those Al-shabaab countries and you'd see more security.
Boko haram will not win and the fact that they even use the name Boko haram does not make sense because they are not true to their name. After all, it is Boko that taught them how to make bombs.

From d information I gathered, Boko Haram is a sect that is against western education, another thing I gathered was that they want Nigeria to be declared as an islamic nation. Also, they are doing what they are doing to make Jonathan a failure and resign as a president.u can see that they are even killing themselves. God will save Nigeria from these evil people.



Re: What is the meaning of Boko Haram Reply by Fola on Sunday May 6, 2012 at 17:29:38:

Boko Haram Intentionally And Simple Means Christians Haram, Because When We Talk About Education Or Been Educated Is Bad, We Should Quickly Look At Their Top-countries Like Saudi Arabia, Libia, Pakistans, Somalia, Afghanistan, Egyptians E.T.C Down To Their Passed Main Leaders.Such As Usama Binladen, Sadam Hussaine, Muhammad Gadaffi, Were Was All Educated, Then Back To Their Nigerian Leaders Such As Buhari, Babangida, Atiku, E.T.C They Were Also Educated, And Look Up To Their Young Generations Please Are There Not Going To School? We People Noted Boko Haram As Jihad's Holy War Which Is Also Mean Submission To Allah! So, I Advice That No-one Should Call This Insurgents Group As Boko Haram, But Rather Christians Haram.
