Any Muslim Who Shouts “Allah Is Great’ Before Killing, Has Mental Problem – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday declared that any Muslim who shouts “Allah is great’ before killing in­nocent people has mental problems.
Represented by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the launch of the revised National Counter-Terror­ism Strategy (NACTEST) in Abuja, Buhari said that “it is either they (Muslims) do not know the meaning of those words or they are simply deranged.”
He said that “these ene­mies (Boko Haram) are es­sentially an insane nuisance because they revel in cow­ardly attacks.”
The President, who not­ed that the war against ter­rorism was unconventional, said that his administration would review its strategy to win the war against the in­surgents.
Buhari said: “There must be an understanding that the war against terrorism is the most unconventional one. They (terrorists) do not re­spect any rules of engage­ment; they kill the defence­less including prisoners, use children and humans, girls and consider the killing of anyone at all at a victory.
“Therefore, as we think through our strategy we must remember that to per­manently win the physical battle, we must win the bat­tle of the minds of even the most impressionable young men who sign up to join Boko Haram and other vio­lent extremist groups.
“We must understand that terrorism is essentially a psychological warfare and as such is psychologically so­phisticated and we must ed­ucate the youths through the leadership of our faith that neither Islam nor any oth­er religion that we know en­dorses the slaughter of any­one,” he said.
