Law on Deradicalization in Kenyan Schools: A Western Colonial Plot to Silence and Attack Islam and Muslims on the Pretext of Fighting Terrorism and Radicalization!

Sharing is Supporting Islam

The Star Newspaper on 4 June 2019 reported that the Senate is discussing a new law that would deploy spies in all schools to fight radicalisation of pupils and students and to fight terrorism. According to the law proposed by Nominated Senator Naomi Waqo from Marsabit, headteachers will oversee counter-terrorism measures. The Prevention of Terrorism (Amendment) Bill 2018 would train teachers and other staff to be alert to signs of extremist leanings. The Bill states that school regulators will carry out background checks on teachers as well. In collaboration with other stakeholders, school regulators will establish ways to spot, deradicalise and reintegrate students found to have been involved in radicalisation or extremism. “Administration regulators shall immediately report to the nearest police station, institution regulator a case of a missing student where there is a reason to believe that such a student is likely to be involved in terrorist acts or to have been radicalised,” the Bill reads.

It is very clear from the above report that Kenya is once again at the forefront to spearhead the execution of an evil plot designed by her Western colonial masters led by Britain, America and France in fighting Islam and Muslims on the pretext of fighting terrorism and radicalization! Kenya joins countries like Britain, France, America, China etc. that have come out openly to declare their hatred to the pure Islam and branded it as “Radical or Extreme Islam” and their support to the distorted version of Islam identified as “Moderate Islam.” Furthermore, their enmity went further into launching of despicable programmes such as the Britain’s Prevent Strategy in 2007, America’s Terrorism Disengagement and Deradicalization Program in 2016 and France’s Prevention of Delinquency and Radicalization in 2016. Therefore, these latest changes that are aimed to be incorporated in The Prevention of Terrorism (Amendment) Bill 2018 are just an extension of the National Strategy to Counter Violent Extremism that was launched by President Uhuru Kenyatta on 7 September 2016.

Furthermore, these latest changes are aimed at furthering the culturing of pupils and students and imposing them with secular personalities aimed at promoting secularism in all spheres of life to an extent one remains a Muslim by name but a secularist by intellect and actions! Kenya like the rest of the secular capitalist regimes across the world; its policies and laws are drawn and approved by their Western colonial masters; then taken to their respective parliaments and councils just for rubberstamping! Hence, Kenya’s main interests is what benefits she will acquire from implementing such evil policies and laws against her own citizens especially Muslims. As long as there is benefits then nothing stops them from executing such heinous programs.

Unfortunately, Kenya is ready to execute blindly such policies without thinking the root cause of the so-called war on terrorism and radicalization. If indeed Kenya was an independent nation and its leadership genuinely concerned for its citizenship affairs, it would have found out that the war on terrorism and radicalization is a war against Muslims and Islam. This is as a result of the Western colonial nations failing to provide peace, tranquility and prosperity in the world and instead have caused and continue to cause havoc and catastrophes in all spheres of life. Due to implementation of their secular capitalist ideology and its poisonous systems such as the ruling system of democracy, social liberal system, and capitalist economic system designed to benefit the few rich and oppress the poor majority and colonial foreign policy. A Colonial foreign policy that has led a country like Kenya to force its soldiers to fight a western proxy-war in Somalia in the name of fighting terrorism; a war that Western nations have failed to win!

If Indeed, Kenya wishes to play a crucial role in Africa or the international arena then first it must cut off its colonial ties and embrace the call for the resumption of the Islamic way of life via the reestablishment of the Khilafah (Caliphate) on the method of Prophethood. The Khilafah will ensure that it protects its citizens’ mind from the Western culture that promotes secularism (separation of religion from life/government). Furthermore, it will build its citizens with an Islamic personality that is anchored on the criterion of Halal and Haram and the main purpose of life is to seek the pleasure of Allah (swt). The Khilafah will liberate Kenya and Africa at large from the Western colonial stranglehold that has caused them economic, social, political and education stagnation since their false independence. The Khilafah will remove from power the colonial agent rulers who are striving day and night to execute Western designed policies aimed at destroying their citizens’ lives and future! The Khilafah will guarantee genuine peace, security, tranquility, development and prosperity to all its citizens with its jurisdiction irrespective of their color, tribe or religion.
