What is the story of al-Shabaab, a militant organization that believes in 'Wahhabi Islam', which has become another name of 'awe' in Somalia?

On Friday, two camps of the Somali Army were attacked. Nine soldiers died in two blasts at the same time. The Army claimed that the Extremists Attackers had also been inflicted this heavy loss and could not take the bodies of many of their comrades. The army claimed that 60 militants were killed at one place and 17 at another place. At the same time, the Terrorist Organization claimed that 47 soldiers were killed in the attack. The terrorist organization 'Al-Shabab' claimed responsibility for this attack.

This was not the first attack of this terrorist organization, which has been fighting a war against the government of Somalia for a long time. In 2017 too, Al Shabaab carried out a terrible explosion in the city of Mogadishu. The death toll in this attack had reached about 275. This terrorist organization includes some of the most feared and dangerous terrorists in the world, who are ready to carry out suicide attacks. After all, what is the history of 'Al-Shabaab' which has become another name for violence and unrest in Somalia.

Born in 2006

The terrorist organization al-Shabaab was born in 2006. The city of Mogadishu was occupied by the Union of Islamic Courts, an organization of Sharia courts. Its head was Sharif Sheikh Ahmed. In 2006, the Ethiopian army defeated this organization and al-Shabaab was born. Al-Shabaab is a radical wing of the Union of Islamic Courts.

Al-Shabaab captured the city of Mogadishu, challenging the Transitional Government of Somalia, the interim government of Somalia. TFG's term ended on 20 August 2012. After this, the Government of the Federal Government of Somalia was formed. Countries like America and Britain have banned al-Shabaab. Al-Shabaab belongs to terrorist organizations like Nigeria's Boko Haram, Al-Qaeda, IS.

Al-Shabaab believes Wahhabi Islam

The sole purpose of al-Shabaab is to root out the Somalia government formed in 2017. Al-Shabaab considers Saudi Arabia's 'Wahhabi Islam', which is the most radical form of Islam. At the same time, in the Muslim-dominated country of Somalia, most people believe in the Sufi cult, that is, they are moderate. There are many areas of Somalia under al-Shabaab's occupation where a harsh 'Sharia law' operates. For example, it is under this law to cut off a hand on stealing, beating a woman with stones at a crossroads when she is in a relationship with someone other than her husband.

148 students targeted in Kenya

Al-Shabaab is commanded by Ahmed Omar, also known as Abu Ubaida. Al-Shabaab's awe is not limited to Somalia. It also acts to spread panic in neighboring countries. America has placed a reward of six and a half crore rupees on the organization's leader Abu Ubaida. In addition to Somalia, al-Shabaab also attacked a university in Kenya in 2015, in which 148 students were shot with bullets. Also in 2016, 180 soldiers were killed in an attack on a Kenyan military camp in Somalia.

According to local time in Idaho, the northwestern state of America, on Thursday, a sixth-grade girl started shooting bullets at the school in public. In this incident, three people were injured by being shot. While showing the bravery, a teacher snatched the gun from him and then this orgy of violence came to an end. The police gave information about it. It has been told that this incident happened in Rigby Middle School and the girl studies in sixth grade. He is between 11 and 12 years old.

Sheriff Steve Anderson of Jefferson County said, the girl pulled out a handgun from her bag and fired several rounds inside and outside the school. He said, among the three people who have been fired, two students and one staff member are there. However, there is no threat to their lives due to the injury of these people. Anderson told the press conference that during the shootout, a teacher bravely snatched the gun from the student's hand and controlled it. After this, the police took the girl in her custody.

Last year, 43 thousand deaths occurred in gun related cases.

The shooting incident is being investigated by the local law enforcement agencies as well as the FBI. In recent weeks, there have been many firing incidents in America. This includes the firing incident at the FedEx facility in Indianapolis, an office building in California, a store in Colorado and several spas in Atlanta. According to the 'Gun Violence Archive', there were 43,000 gun-related deaths in the US last year, including suicide cases.

The gun violence epidemic and international embarrassment: Joe Biden

US President Joe Biden declared the growing gun violence in the country an epidemic and an international embarrassment. He outlined steps to regularize indigenous weapons and pressurized Parliament to reapply the long-standing restrictions on weapons used in the attack. Biden said that whether or not Congress takes action, he will take all measures under his control as president to protect the American people from gun violence. He said that members of Parliament gave many views and expressed their desire. But he did not pass a single new federal law to reduce gun violence.
