Have you ever felt alone? Scared, worried...hungry perhaps? One of the most common ways to cope with this is to reach out to an ultimate being. That natural spirit, be it person, animal, plant, etc., you have some supreme thing that you worship. Regardless of bad emotions/ feelings, you might even pray to this god when you feel good. But is it right for me to tell you what god to pray? Is it right for you tell me and chastise me if I do not? These are the questions of religious fre...

Religion: A belief in the existence of God or gods. Religious: Connected to a particular religion. Nigeria arguably is one of the countries with the highest number of religious adherents(mainly Christianity and Islam) and a small percentage of atheist. Yet in spite of this “Numerical advantage” in religious statistics we are steadily slipping down the ladder of failure as a nation and people. One sure thing is, non of the religions practiced in Nigeria remotely or openly ap...

So I’ve been doing a lot of reading around discrimination and prejudice in civil law at the minute and I have to say I feel very proud to be Scottish reading how well equipped it is. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the legislation the Equality Act 2010 is the main piece of anti-discrimination legislation in the workforce. Within the act are a number of ‘protected characteristics’ that are protected by the act from prejudiced behaviour. These include age, disabilit...

By Atiku Abubakar. Original source: http://atiku.org/aa/2014/01/01/never-take-unity-for-granted/ As we mark the centenary celebration of the amalgamation of the Lagos colony with the Northern and Southern Protectorates by the British Colonial occupier forming one country, Nigerians need to pat each other on the back. We have truly come a long way. We must redouble our efforts towards building a stronger and more united Nigeria rather than concentrating energies on division o...

I am going to write about one of the human rights, which is the freedom of religion. Freedom of religion is a universal right, which means that the whole world’s countries have it. It is the same with all human rights. They are universal and indivisible which means that no right is bigger than the other. The freedom of religion is very important for almost everyone. This right says that the human has the right to believe in whatever he/she wants and thinks (in a religious way) ho...

I don't know how to start this note or make the words suitable for everyone to understand. Well the affair and situation at hand makes it porous to understand. Sometimes I ask myself: *why must a man go through labor to eat? * why are young girls raped? * why are there hoodlums in our street? * why is the government not working towards advancement? * why is education porous and ill? * why is there a massive increase in unemployment? * why is Nigeria, listed as one of the most corrupt countries...

The fate of mankind, as well as religion, depends on the emergence of a new faith in the future. Armed with such a faith, we might find it possible to resanctify the earth. This faith is us, the young people, taking charge of implementing the sustainable future that our leaders will discuss at Rio+20. Let us not just talk but acting too. We are the youth of the world's society. We are the only hope so let's make some noise!!! Let us show the world how serious we are in promotin...

Starting tomorrow Muslims across the world will begin fasting during the month of Ramadan. Being a British Muslim, I am often faced with questions like "Why do you fast?" or "What is Ramadan?" I believe it is important for us all to be aware of different cultures and religions so I thought I'd share a little bit of Ramadan with you all. Ramadan is the holiest month in the Islamic calendar and it was in this month that the Qur'an was revealed to the prophet Muhammad. Musli...
