I saw this picture (www.skepticalconservatives.org/?cat=296) on my facebook wall and I can't help feeling sorry for these persons who were burnt alive just because they are exercising their right to choose their religion and practice their beliefs. My heart goes to these honorable people and to their families, if they have left any. The culprit of this inhumane act are the Sunni Muslims in Nigeria. They believe that Islam should be the only religion in the world so they do this. I'm not sure if Allah is rejoicing right now, seeing what His followers are doing and what have they become. Religion have always been a sensitive topic to all of us. But can't we just respect each other and what each of us believes.

Oh God!!! I've been following Nigeria in the news lately. Lot of religious violence has been reported over an year or so. I just can't understand why we, the so-called intelligent species, are on to such inhumane acts. Burning people alive is so cruel and unimaginable! Wish we stopped fighting over religion, race, caste etc an lead a peaceful life which is so short! Instead of getting better, our Earth is becoming dangerous place to live in. We call ourselves civilised and modern people, but are these acts of civilised ones??

Religion is Manmade! Our Creator never intended us to be so divided!

Yes, if we all could understand this simple concept we could live a more peaceful and happy life! Maybe poverty is one of the causes of these acts based on religion. Poor people are given money and are asked to get converted and spread the religion. Unemployment and poverty should be solved first.

I have taken a glimpse of that picture too on FB just a while ago. But i didn't maximize the photo because seeing their conditions in that way, already made me feel so sad. I feel like crying upon seeing it because for me all of us are God's children and that we are called to care and to love our fellows. I really don't understand why it is so easy for other people to kill and they even make their religion as the main reason why they are doing such thing. We all have the freedom to choose our beliefs but we should also try to respect each other's choice. I know each religion taught us how to become a good human being and killing is not a part of it.
