Anti-Terrorism Imam Shot in DRC Mosque While Praying

Postby Insaanistan » Tue May 04, 2021 10:58 am

The Democratic Republic of Congo is a large nation in Central Africa, home to the city that holds the title for most French speakers, their capital, Kinshasa. The country is majority Christians, but like many Christian majority nations in Africa, it has a significant and rapidly growing Muslim population. It has repeated come under attack by DAESH (ISIS) and other terrorist groups. Since the 90s, terrorists and other rebel groups have operated in the country, especially in the Eastern part of the country. Those groups have now taken another casualty: Sheikh Ali Amini.

Amini was an outspoken critic of these terrorist groups. While praying evening prayers in a mosque in Beni, a gunman shot him, and was able to get away as he had come with a companion who had a motorcycle. This is first of such a killing to occur in Beni.

The Muslim community in the nation is reeling in the face of the attack, as Congolese people wonder how much worse it can get.

It's a shame that he died, anyone who denounces terrorism is good in my book. May he rest in peace.

That sucks, hopefully they'll manage to catch whoever perpetrated the attack and punish them to the fullest extent of the law.

Has any group claimed responsibility for the killing as of yet?

No group has yet claimed responsibility, but the “Allied Democratic Forces” (ADF) frequently operates in that region. Don’t be fooled by the name: the group is a 20 year old terrorist organization founded in neighboring Uganda, justifying their acts by saying they were trying to “fight discrimination against Muslims”. Uganda’s military has been successful against them, and so they’ve largely been pushed into the DRC side of the border.

Hopefully government forces will be able to stamp out any more of these terrorist cells before they can strike again.

Unfortunately I doubt it'll be that easy, more are likely to die considering these guys have been around for twenty something years and while albeit heavily weakened, aren't quite eradicated as of yet.
