When Danish newspapers carried cartoons depicting Muhammad, Muslim radicals killed several Christians in Nigeria. Nigerian government must take measures to protect Christians and other targets from possible attacks by radical Muslims.
A recent undercover investigation exposed the growing influence of Sharia law in UK. Sharia laws are inconsistent with human rights principles of equality and non-discrimination. UK must stop Sharia laws from operating in the country.

Nigerian government has failed to stop the violence by the Islamic radical group, Boko Haram. We are deeply disappointed by failure of the Nigerian government to end the violence. Nigeria is able to solve this problem. What it lacks is the political will to end the violence against Christians and other targets of violence by Muslim radicals.
Nigerian churches are coming up with different methods to stop Muslim radicals from carrying out attacks at churches. One of the churches is now banning women from wearing headwraps. Security is important and we welcome the church's decision. Nigeria has failed to protect its citizens from radical Muslim attacks and the situation will get worse unless the government takes decisive actions against the Islamists.
Nigeria's Muslim radicals have continued persecuting Christians.The Islamists recently tried to kill a pastor and his family. We believe that US and other countries must pressure Nigeria to protect Christians from Islamic attacks.
Northern part of Mali has come under control of Muslim radicals who are implementing Sharia law. Christians and women are among victims of the law. Many Christians and other victims of the Sharia law are leaving northern Mali. We urge the international community to oust the Islamists from northern Mali and replace the Sharia law with democratic principles that respect the rights of all.
