The country has recorded several religious and political crises since her independence in 1960. Niger Delta crisis had claimed lives of thousands of Nigerians and a lot of properties were gradually melting down in the Eastern part of the country. Boko Haram group replicates it in the North.  This study tried to analyze Boko Haram’s activities and ideologies on western education, jihad and homicide. The position of Nigerian Muslims was also highlighted. Solutions recommended in the paper include enlightenment programmes, professional training programmes for missionaries, good governance and enhancement of moral values through making religious studies compulsory up to senior secondary school level.

Keywords: Boko Haram activities, Islamic Perspectives.
