It has emerged that a Christian militia in the Central African Republic (CAR) has destroyed almost all mosques in the country.

The militia known as anti-balaka has been engaged in the persecution of Muslims after a Muslim leader deposed the country’s previous Christian President in 2013.

Michel Djotodia (Muslim) overthrew Francis Bozize (Christian) in a bloody coup in December 2013, sparking religious sectarian violence across the country.

The United States ambassador to the United Nations- Samantha Power said 417 out of the 436 mosques in the CAR have been destroyed by the Christian militia.

The few remaining mosques are said to be under siege by the militia and independent observers say that all Muslims have been completely wiped out of the country.

More than 5,000 people have been killed in the country since the violence began. The African Union has been unable to deal with the problem.

Nearly one million of the country’s 4.5 million residents have been displaced. Many of those who have fled are Muslim.

Power said 417 of the country’s mosques have been destroyed, expressing serious concern about the upcoming possible security vacuum that will be created as the European Union and French forces withdraw from the country. European Union and French troops have been helping to restore law and order since last year.

She visited the one remaining Muslim neighborhood in the capital, Bangui, and described the residents as “a terrified population”.  It is said that some of the pregnant Muslim women are so afraid of leaving the community while wearing their veils, that they are choosing to give birth in their homes instead of going to hospitals.

The militia attacks anybody they see dressed in Muslim attire. The French and EU forces have tried very hard to disarm the militia, but these efforts have failed to yield any meaningful results.

There are about 750 EU and French troops left in the country and it is expected that these troops will soon be pulled out, leaving the country to its fate as the violence continues to spread.

The United Nations has said that it will deploy about 12,000 troops to take over from the departing troops; however these statements have yet to materialize since the Security Council made the proposal last year. The UN peacekeepers will assume their mandate in September this year, yet many observers say that it will be far too late to stop the violence.

The Central African Republic has been in turmoil since the Seleka rebels led by Micheal Djotodia ousted President Francois Bozize last year.

President Djotodia however resigned in January 2014 in a deal that was brokered by regional leaders; giving way for the first female president of the country, Catherine Samba-Panza, however violence continues to threaten the stability of the country.

The United Nations estimates that more than one million people have fled their homes in the crisis and human rights activists have confirmed that the country has seen religious cleansing between Christians and Muslims.

Muslim civilians are being targeted by the militia in revenge for the seizure of power by the mainly Muslim rebels in 2013. The militia has said that they are taking revenge for atrocities committed by the Seleka Muslim rebels, when Mr. Djotodia seized power in March 2013.

The CAR is a landlocked country in Central Africa, covering an area of 620,000 square kilometers. It has never had a Muslim President since the country gained independence from France in 1960. The attempt by the Seleka Muslim rebels who ousted the Christian leader in 2013 has been attributed to the domination of the Christians in the political affairs of the country, virtually sidelining the Muslims.

    • Agree wholeheartedly. Just have TOLERANCE for everyone’s religion, do not take offense at any religion and do not try and inflict it on another. Everyone treat each other politely and with respect.

      • YOU DON’T GET IT DO YOU..THERE IS NO PEACE WITH THE MUSLIMS..THEY WANT TO RULE THE WORLD..WITH THEM, THERE IS NO OTHER WAY..THEY HAVE SLAUGHERED THOUSANDS THAT WON’T CONVERT TO ISLAM..
        THOUGH, I HEAR VIA NEWS THAT THERE ARE THOUSANDS THAT HAVE CONVERTED TO CHRISTIANITY AS CHRIST APPEARS TO THEM TO TELL THEM HE IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE AND THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO GOD THE FATHER..READ THE NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES..

        • yes,the muslims want to kill all that not convert to them just read coran its all there so it is easy kill them before u get killed,and it is not a religion its a cult,just read and see,i thank good that someone fight back,this pepole are heros and russia too they have done mutch and keep fight them

      • Frankie, Are you Serious when you said “Everyone treat each other politely and with respect.” Muslims do NOT make friends only enemies if you do not believe and succumb to their ideology. They are invaders in other nations. They have no respect for anyone but their own way of life with is: murder, rape, pedophile, manipulation, intimidation, treating women as slaves, marrying girls as young as six years old. They want to conquer nations not “just get along.”

      • Interesting to see a reversal to the ethnic cleansing undertaken by islam for the past 1400 years, recent intensity of this activity must have triggered the sluggish defence mechanism of christians. I hope to see Yazidis peacefully demolishing mosques in Syria and Iraq when the muslim men are at home peacefully beating their wives and raping their slaves.

      • You can’t live side by side with a militant cult religion that wants to dominate you!!!#!!#!! Gosh!!! Can’t you see that by now!!!!#! Haven’t you been seeing the atrocities being done by islam to each other and other people!!!!#! 🙁 Geez, wake up!!!!!#! These are peeps that believe in an evil dictatorship religious militant cult!!!!! ####! 🙁

    • I suggest you tell the muslims, since they are going around decapitating people and crucifying Christians. I don’t know what world you live in.

  1. So this is a religious war? First you get the Muslims killing Christians, now they are fighting back… Crusades again?

      • Well, the thing is, “If you use Violence to push your Idea forward, people will respond with Violence.”

        Not trying to support the acts of the Militia, however the moment the Muslims did the Bloody-coup, retaliations such as this should’ve been expected.

        P.s. “If the area you live in, is not supportive of your Religion, then just move.” [@ Muslims in the Country]

          • Tom – Do you REALLY think Muslims are killing people? With that thinking, one might as well say that Christians all rape, lynch, murder and burn crosses on the lawns of all people of color.

            You are thinking of radicalism, not mainstream Islam.

            Remember, Muslims worship the same God of Abraham as Christians and Jews.

          • Tom, I got this! Dan your head is in the sand or you fell in one deep rabbit hole. Muslims do NOT worship the same God as Jews and Christians!!! Allah is the “supreme” and Mohammad is his “prophet.” God is Heavenly Father of all of us, Jesus Christ is His Son and Our Savior, the Holy Spirit guides us. Now onto Muslims. How could you tell the difference between a moderate and an extremist? You can’t and I will tell you why. 1. They all will tell you Allah is “their god” and Mohammed is “their prophet”; and anything that they say goes. Read the trilogy: Koran, Hadith and Sira and you will have your eyes truly opened. They are filled with hatred! Christians believe that God gave man the freedom of will, to choose or not to choose Him! We do not force and those who do are not truly Christians. Any “Christian” that harms another are not truly doing what Christ asked “Do unto others as I have done unto you.”

  2. Its kinda hard to get along with a culture who has as one of its tenants to behead or convert all the non-muslims. that said, i love the good old school christian hospitality, doesnt everyone remember that part of the bible where jesus burned down a bunch of other religions temples with an angry mob?

    • Yeah because you know the muslims killing christians totally isn’t a big deal and you don’t care about that though? but once christians start doing it thats when its a problem. Fucking idiot….

      • Vic & Blake – so, apparently, you believe that all Christians are racists, wearing white robes with pointy hats? Just because one group claims to be something, if their actions go AGAINST the teachings of that religion, does not still make them members of that religion.

        Islam does NOT demand beheading people who are not Muslim. That is completely absurd.

        • Now, let us have a closer look at what the Koran says about the infidels:-

          Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)
          Make war on the infidels living in your neighboorhood (9:123)
          When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)
          Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax (9:29)
          Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable (3:85)
          The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them (9:30)
          Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticise Islam. (5:33)
          The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque (9:28)
          Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies
          (22:19)
          Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them (47:4)
          The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them (8:65)
          Muslims must not take the infidels as friends (3:28)
          Terrorise and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an (8:12)
          Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorise the infidels (8:60)
          The Qur’an certainly proclaims that when the time is appropriate, Muslims must use force to convert the unbelievers to Islam. For the non-Muslims, the alternative to this is to pay the humiliating protection money (Jizya tax) or be killed (by beheading, of course). A militarily dominant Islam, without doubt, precludes the peaceful co-existence with the unbelievers if the Muslims have to abide strictly by the unalterable stipulations of the Qur’an.

          • Helmut, you are right on the mark! However much of their psychopathic ideology comes from the Hadith (traditions/sunna) and the Sira (Mohammad’s biology). It is so disgusting to read but in order to truly understand this barbaric way of “life” the trilogy gets to the root. The Koran is about Allah and the other two will make you want to vomit, I did (well almost).

          • What are your sources. I am a proud Christian and what you say is not true, I actually have gotten an Arabic to english translation of the Koran and got one of mates to approve it (he is an arabic christian) site your actual sources before you do that.

          • hahahaha I can’t believe what I was just reading! A published book taken out of context and twisted to meet someone’s own religious ends. Stoking a fire that doesn’t need stoking, and probably taking the murder of innocent people upon his own soul in the process. I wouldn’t want to be you, Helmut Schulz, when you have to answer to God on Judgement Day! I have a Quran right here and checked the verses you gave that I could find. I also suggest you get your material in order next time you are going to quote something, so others can find it without reading the entire book.

        • Dan, you need to educate yourself. Islam is not like other religions. I have read the Koran and it indeed does say to kill the unbelievers. Muhummad indulge himself in beheading a whole village of Jews. The Koran is a book of hate!

        • Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

          Abu Dawud (14:2527) – The Prophet said: Striving in the path of Allah (jihad) is incumbent on you along with every ruler, whether he is pious or impious

          Muslim (1:33) – the Messenger of Allah said: I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah
          Bukhari (52:73) – “Allah’s Apostle said, ‘Know that Paradise is under the shades of swords’.”

          Bukhari (11:626) – [Muhammad said:] “I decided to order a man to lead the prayer and then take a flame to burn all those, who had not left their houses for the prayer, burning them alive inside their homes.”

          Tabari 9:69 “Killing Unbelievers is a small matter to us” The words of Muhammad, prophet of Islam.

          Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 992: – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.”

          Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

          Quran (4:76) – “Those who believe fight in the cause of Allah…

    • Please get an education Jesus lost it at the temples because the money lenders were defiling them and he was a Jew not a Christian.

    • Dan Atataki, I used to agree with what you’re saying but I’ve seen words taken out of their Koran and it seems to justify a lot of social anthologies. Killing unbelievers (Infidels) Marrying children, etc.

      • Now, let us have a closer look at what the Koran says about the infidels:-

        Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them(2:191)
        Make war on the infidels living in your neighboorhood (9:123)
        When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them (9:5)

    • please stop speaking heresy, where in the bible or in history this Jesus burn down a bunch of other religions temples with an angry mob?… this is a blatant lie and it is never in history or in the bible

  3. So pretty much any organisation that kills for islam is immediately branded ‘unislamic’ though when people kill for Christianity it immediately is branded a ‘christian militia’ great hypocrisy anonymous, did you remember to mention how every christian branch on the repiblic has condemned this group or you just hate Christians and love islam

    • Well excuse me have u not seen the news all you hear is about the Muslims killing Christians and not once have I even heard about CAR and the civil war. So I suggest you re word your little rant as Muslims are being targeted by the media as killers whilst all the other news is hidden….

    • Yeh because ISIS is never called an islamic militia. Maybe you are reading too much into this. I am sure lots of people will say these people are non-christian for doing this just like they say about ISIS but the fact is they are still islamic militias and christian militias. The issue really should be is why stupid fucks keep killing and dying for make believe people.
      P.S. My make believe god would beat the shit out of your make believe god!

  4. Amando Flavio, I really do wonder why you’ve chosen to only provide selected, biased information in this article. It’s very easy to just refer to the militia as ‘Christians’ however not once in this piece is there a reference or explanation of animists or the fact that mixed animist/Christian/Muslin ‘militias’ have been in CAR since approx 1900 as local law enforcement and protection.

    The origins of Antibalaka militias date back to before the 2013 coup. In 2009, President Bozizé, established loosely organised village self-protection groups that would combat bandits and other sources of insecurity on a local level.

    Following the coup in March 2013 the Séléka fighters attacked villages, sometimes murdering entire families, burned crops and looted vehicles. The Antibalaka began fighting back in September 2013 and in the same way that not all members of Seleka are Muslims, not all members of Antibalaka are Christian. Many members of the Antibalaka are animists who are young people who for years have protected their villages and their territories and wear amulets to protect them from bullets. The Antibalaka is present in all communities whether they are animists, Christians or Muslims. Most fighters joined the Antibalaka not because of faith but for revenge, or because there was no other avenue for survival against the Séléka

    When the Antibalaka succeeded in removing the Séléka and President Djotodia from Bangui, many expected a heroes’ welcome and compensation for the ‘good work’ they had done. When Antibalaka demands for compensation for ‘liberating’ the CAR were not met, militia members began setting up roadblocks to extort money. Kidnap-for-ransom became common but often the victims were Christians.

    It would be nice to see some decent journalism that tells the whole story instead of just the half that you want people to see.

  6. Are you fucking kidding me?? Do you not see the news all they talk about is Muslims killing Christians. Soo excuse me for people wanting to know about the other half of the story. Muslims are targeted by the media all the time Soo I suggest you rephrase your little rant as you got it all wrong my friend

  7. You guys are so retarded. No one is saying that this represents Christianity. The point Anonymous is trying to make is that not all terrorists in the world are Muslims. There are many Christian terrorists as well, and this is one example.

    • Yes, but the Christians are NOT terrorists. Did you even read the article? It is an innate reaction for survival. The muslimes slaughtered the Christians and destroyed their churches. This is retribution; a response, NOT terrorism.

  8. Stupid ones kill as Christians and other stupid ones kill as Muslims. Killing „in the name of God” is the symbol of human stupidity.

  9. This world is getting a place not to live. everybody hates everybody. why cant there be love people. I am muslim & against whatever is wrongdoing of muslim same should be the case with every religion. practice your religio & dont impose. If you are good enough people will follow you. #SayNoToHatred #ILoveEveryHuman

  10. Its time that all peope if Christians,Judes,Buddisim,Hidu and all others fight against the Islam, the religion of killing,terrorisim,raping of Muderers and Killers.
    Islam must be deleted from the whole world!!!!

  11. Funny how these guys are called “Militia” and not terrorist. This is just so crazy and stupid. If a single Muslim could retaliate on what is happening in CAR and or south Sudan, his name will be terrorist. But in this case you even gave me them an excuse so that they can continue. A Muslim over thrown a christian government in cold blood coup.

    • I remember some yrs ago a friend of mine worked there and was telling me how the muslims were ethnically cleansing the Christians by killing all males from babies up and taking the women….this is just the result baby, Africa deals with their problems the only way it works. Once all the muslims are gone out of it there will be a lot less trouble, thats for certain

  12. When Muslim Terrorists kill and burn christians and cchristian churches, this so called human rights and other governmental organization keep their coward assess shut. Now begins, christians fed up and retaliates…these so called cowards trying to send government forces to stop christians from killing the these terrorists.

    duh!

    There are no moderate muslims…all who are silent are most radical, sitting and watching while others praticing what their book is telling.

    Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”

  13. One question to Seculars
    its Hamas which attacks Jews first, then Israel retaliates,
    its d Rohingya Muslim who attacks Buddhist first n then d Buddhists retaliates in Myanmar,
    its d Muslims who attack Serbs in Bosnia Chechnya and then d Serbs retaliates,
    its d Muslim who commits crimes all over Europe n d European Christians retaliates,
    its d Muslim who kill innocent Christians in Kenya Nigeria n all over Africa n Christians retaliates,
    its d Muslim who commits crime in d US n Canada and Ppl der opposes Islam…
    its d Muslims who kill n rapes d Yazeedis in Iraq/Syria n they try to retaliate,
    its d Muslims who burn a Train compartment to kill 57 Sadhus, Women n Children and Hindus retaliates in India….
    its always d Muslims who start it and their opposition is d 1 who finishes it!
    but questions r asked always from ppl who retaliates rather than those who start it. WHY???

    • Piyush Singh – I have one question for you. Most of the Singh family are Hindu. Are you? A Hindu took office in India recently and the first order of business was the slaughter of any Muslim seen for 24 hours! Not very impartial.

  15. I feel sorry for these hunter gatherers who have been blinded by religion and have to participate in OUR world of hate to save their country.

  16. I have indeed read across ur comments, but what you need to know is that, Islam as a religion does condemn other people religious and does not force one to become a Muslim unwillingly. I take you to kuran 2.v156, “there is no compontion in religion ” so we do not force one to worship with us nor kill any one, because the Allah you all accused says in Kuran 109.v6. Said ” you have your own religion then I have mine ” please before you accuse our religion with all these blasphemy, know well about Kuran because in there are verses that have been well explained by Islamic Scholars. Thanks
