Muslims in Nigeria Demonstrate How Not to Act When Loosing an ElectionTopics: Understanding Islam
Deadly rioting erupted across Nigeria's largely Muslim north on Monday as youths torched churches and homes in anger at President Goodluck Jonathan's election victory.Apparently, for Muslims, an election is only valid if they win. If they don't, they react with violence.
Jonathan, the first president from the oil producing Niger Delta, was declared the winner with around 57 percent of votes. He defeated Muhammadu Buhari, a former military ruler from the north, who got around 31 percent.
Observers have called the poll the fairest in decades in Africa's most populous nation.
It seems there's an awful lot of Muslims out there that haven't yet got the word about Islam being the 'religion of peace'.
