While the world was busy condemning the Paris Terror attack, Poor Nigerians were Facing One of the Deadliest Terror attack in the history.Thousands of Bodies ..whole Village Burnt……Acc. to Amnesty International ,Nigerian Massacre where 2000 people were killed is one of the Deadliest in History.
Despite this ,the World paid attention to only one type of Terrorism, that faced by Society of Elites and Affluent,not by the Poor and Marginalised.Why did the world Ignore the Nigerian Massacre?what makes one incident more newsworthy than the other?
Paris Attack Baga Massacre
I haven’t Witnessed any special Coverage of the Nigerian Massacre like the Paris Attack by the International Media . Are the lives of Nigerians Killed in the Extremist attack not worthy enough for the attention of the International community.Why is there Disparity in sympathy?
Regarding the Coverage ,Some Liberals insist that the reporters didn’t have the reach to the remote area of Nigeria where the incident happened and at the same time highlighted the security risk to the media?is that so ?so why was it not so in the case of Iraq, where Several Journalists were beheaded by ISIS.
Baga the north-eastern town of Nigeria is Equally Important as Paris.Lives of Paris Victims are as precious as those of Baga Victims. World need to be rational, must look at the Nigerian Massacre with same seriousness and must act to eradicate extremism from the whole world.
The passionate solidarity march and angry editorials are missing in the case of Nigerian Massacre,except for some concerned people’s tweets with #bokoharam
I am not saying that we should demean the paris attacks seriousness ,just on account of having less victimization but requesting the world to pay attention towards African Genocide. Forget rest of the world, even African International Community and Journalism is equally Responsible for Not Highlighting their Own Problems and issues.
So one thing we can say is that, the French Community is United ,works on principle of “aggression against one will be perceived as aggression against all “and that is missing in the case of African Community. Since Nigeria was a colony of Britain, Britain should help Nigeria in combating extremism.Though the largest democracy of the world, India Condemned the Paris Attack,but it ignored Nigerian massacre.None of Govt.officials spoke about the horrible act. This reluctancy and Silence of the world gives us only one message:
“No body wants to look deep into the eye of Poor and Downtrodden”
How Horrible the massacre was?…..This time I will not leave you by asking a question,but by leaving you with a picture
