Do you have a groundbreaking story you would like us to publish? Please reach us through!

“I’m really troubled, so is our governor here but I am very happy now that they have been officially declared terrorists. So, you catch and kill them. That is the only solution since dialoguing with them has failed."

He added:

“How can someone kill 20 to 30 person and be taken to correction centre? It will not augur well. If he comes out, he will go back to his old ways.”

In answer to their prayer, the Emir admonished people in the state to be obedient to God and have a clean mind towards each other by loving one another and being their brother’s keeper.
