Guest Contributor, Saajida Malvina asks a few important questions about the alleged abduction of the Nigerian schoolgirls.

Boko Haram’s terror mandate to establish a pure Islamic state ruled according to Shariah, has been well publicised throughout the mainstream media. However many analysts believe the group is motivated by inter-ethnic disputes as much as religion. In order to assist certain marginalised communities, eradicate poverty, fight corruption and unemployment, Boko Haram was formed. Police killed Muhammad Yusuf, the founder of the group in 2009 and his deputy Abu Bakr Shekau took over. Whilst a military commander apparently linked Al-Qaeeda to Boko Haram, there is no actual evidence of this, and international targets have been limited. In November 2013 however, Boko Haram was declared a terrorist organisation by the US government. read more

Mr Carpentry
Need to fix kitchen doors and new cupboards?


The Captain called the Sergeant in. "Sarge, I just got a telegram. Private Jones' mother passed away yesterday. Better go tell him and send him in to see me."

So the Sergeant calls for his morning formation and lines up all the troops. "Listen up, men," says the Sergeant. "Johnson, report to the mess hall to sign some papers. The rest of you men report to the Motor Pool for maintenance. Oh by the way, Jones, your mother died, report to the commander."

Later that day the Captain called the Sergeant into his office. "Hey, Sarge, that was a pretty cold way to inform Jones his mother passed away. Couldn't you be a bit more tactful, next time?"

"Yes, sir," answered the Sarge. A few months later, the Captain called the Sergeant in again with, "Sarge, I just got a telegram. Private McGrath's mother died. You'd better go tell him and send him in to see me. This time be more tactful."

So the Sergeant calls for his morning formation. "Ok, men, fall in and listen up. Everybody with a mother, take two steps forward - NOT SO FAST, McGRATH!"
