Video - Muslims in Nigeria condemn Boko Haram's kidnapping of schoolgirls
Muslims around the world have condemned the kidnappings of more than 200 Nigerian girls from their school in Chibok village on April 15.Muslim leaders said groups like Boko Haram, who have claimed responsibility for the abductions, are a disgrace to their religion.The Nigerian government has come under fire for its response to the girls' abduction, but one of the overlooked aspects has been its minimal regulation of preaching and places of worship.Clerics complain that there is no proper mechanism for certifying imams at mosques, allowing some preachers to spread their ideas unchecked.
