I noticed more and more Somalis are becoming gaalo. It mostly stems from ignorance and wrong upbringing. Atheist/agnostic Somalis seem to be the worst clannists, but at the same time can also be the least clannist Somalis, for example AbdiJohnson. His moral and values are strong.
They don't fear the hereafter.or Allah (swt) They live for this Dunya. They aren't preparing themselves for the hereafter so they become extreme in their fields. Some atheist/agnostic Somalis suffer from severe depression. As we know majority of the Atheists/Agnostic are not family oriented feeling and are most of the time a product of society. They see family or religion as a burden.
Since they don't really have a group to lean on or a cause and never were family oriented, they feel empty inside. They become nationalist Somalis(though this is not always the case, some become extreme clannist. They want to feel part of a group and appreciated and admired.
Some have noticed in the Western countries that White people will never accept them, regardless of their Atheism/Agnosticism. Some turn to other groups and were rejected. When all fails they just turn to their own ethnic.
Most Clannist Muslim Somalis on this forum who were raised in the West would still align themselves with these Atheists/Agnostics as long as they represent Somali's or their clan.
Were the previous generation like this?
I'm sure the Somalis back home feel like being Somali and a Muslim are synonymous. They would never tolerate this. To all atheists and agnostics willing to die for Somalis or their clan. Will you be up front with other Somalis and tell them that you are a Atheist/Agnostic or will you hide it for the rest of your life while pursuing your goal.
To all Muslim Somalis would you accept them as your brothers and sisters?
