I will just comment about this in general, because i dont really know much of the background. I am not agree of whit this separatis action. Not only
in mali, but in everywhere. Lots of muslim not agree about it. For example, in my country in indonesia, we still battle these extremist, by law or by
dialog in many level of society, the hard thing to solve is the wrong understanding of islam itself.
But not just this, we not agree with lots of unjustice and wrong thing happen in the world by anyone, any group or country.
Something wrong will always remain wrong however they want to wrap it to make it look good.
This plot is not just happened lately but since so long ago. A political movement to gain power and money using religion/islam flag to gain more
support. Salafist and wahabis known behind them in general.
This is what i know, and mostly not from media but direct source. It started since afghanistan war against soviet. As we know US support taliban, but
behind it, taliban have more support informally, militan from other country that weirdly can go there that time even dont have anything.
Those militan from other country not just help taliban, but adopt their ideology, even not all. When they got back, they start spread the ideology
slowly to gather mass and support,even they only small in number, but they are loud, mostly since 2000.
Moving on, with more injustice toward muslim community in the world, they gain more support from people. Israel and US politic oftenly used as fuel.
They have they own media, underground media that show evilness of the western to muslim society, with good naration and abundant proof of picture,
video or even witness.
After bali bombing, more muslim in here start to get the idea that it is not about religion, but politic. Debat is getting worse, and the extremist
strategy change, use different issue but same goal, to get more mass and support.
After 9/11 we can find lots of sites in internet thats only about hate to muslim or islam. Later on they start gathering wrong data, compile wrong
understanding of quran and hadith, even fake it. Either they just compile it or make it themself and make conclusions of it.
It seems just a simple agenda of hating, but what they dont know, this false article or sites have been used lately by this extremist, and they gather
more mass and support from young people who dont know much about islam. If in here we know these sites is used to dicredited islam, in other way
extremist and young reader use it to justify and validate their wrong view, and i found it very ironic. They will say even western and non muslim know
this (those wicked wrong interpretation or source), so you should know it or even better.
In the end they goal will be to have their own country, and the world next time. And they will have sharia law as the formal law.
What most non muslim dont understand it that full sharia law will never happen in general. They are loads of things that some sectarian and scholar
wont agree of the understanding, way or even the source of law. Salafist and wahabis sharia law mostly rejected in muslim community because of the
wrong understanding that can be fatal.
If western world scared of sharia, even not knowing which one, most muslim will be scared too if the sharia is salafist or wahabis version, as we can
see in taliban era. Most muslim country when saying about sharia law is in simple way, like getting married, heritage, when someone die etc. Even that
there are lots of dissagreement between sect or people in general.
Sorry if it is too long and not too much about mali.
