The group indiscriminately attacks civilians in public places frequented by women children and the elderly like open air markets. The majority of Islamic scholars have long denounced the group since its inception saying all al-Shabaab activities have no place in Islam including non-violent ones.
It is unfortunate al-Shabaab is justifying all their activities and violence with religion. It is common sense that no religion condones or allows attacking the innocent.
The ultimate responsibility is in the Somali people’s hands and our unity will defeat this heartless hypocritical group that uses religion to justify unspeakable acts terror.
