This chapter analyzes a fault line within this perception of widespread support for the strictest iteration of Islamic penal law. It describes the context of a society like Northern Nigeria that witnessed a grassroots revolution demanding the implementation of the strictest iteration of Islamic penal law, that law can be sidelined when society agrees that the law presents an ethical conflict. The chapter focuses on how instincts can co-exist in a society strictly "religious", and in the context of twelve northern Nigerian states that oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. On the global level, Nigerians observe the splendor of mosques, charitable organizations and schools funded by wealthy Gulf states and associate the material riches with austere Islam. Women's rights advocates such as WRAPA (Women's Rights Advancement and Protection Alternative), have taken up the cause against ijbar as part of an overall women's empowerment agenda.
