However, the same Quran contradicts Abu Qaqa’s bloodthirsty jihadist instincts, as you can deduce from the following verses of the Quran!
In order to understand the reason for the “fight” recommended in Quran chapter 9:29, one should examine the word “jizya” as well as the reason for it. Wikipedia states as follows:
We can therefore correctly deduce from the above that the “fight” meant at Sura 9:29 is jizya-based fight or jizya-informed fight or jizya-related fight. It means using the arm of the law by way of imprisonment; this is because if Quran 9:29 enjoins the killing of Christians and other non-Muslims for not converting to Islam, then Quran 2:109, 2:256 especially, 18:29 and all of chapter 109 would not have been written. The “fight” has to do with that tax (jizya) – the non-payment of which would be tantamount to rejection of the Muslim state. The “fight’ does not mean annihilation of the non-conformists in a Muslim state. Note that such “fight” applies only in a Muslim state. But as Nigeria is a secular state, that sort of “fight” is not applicable and will be unwarranted. It must therefore be regarded as anarchy and insurgency. This is why Abu Qaqa and his Boko Haram are wrong in levying war against Christians in the North. It is in the light of this that correct interpretation of Quran 9:29 should be sought together with the accurate understanding of “jihad.”
Besides, one wonders at the killing of Christians in northern Nigeria as if they are the only non-Muslims. Are there no animists, Guru Maharajii, Hare Krishnans, Eckists and other non-Muslim religionists in the North? This bias against Christians alone can therefore be said to have some Middle-eastern political undertones.
