    When people are insecure about their own status they start to sell it to others in an attempt to get some relief from identity crisis. That’s what Fikre and Jawar did. Accepting a foreign religion means accepting foreign culture and identitity and this comes ONLY by rejecting yours! There is no question about this.

    Rejecting oromo religion means rejecting your culture and identity. That is why you go with foreign name which not only weakened but almost destroyed your orommumaa. There is nothing left you can pass to your children other than afaan oromo. I am not suggesting you give up your religion, but you can NEVER reconcile foreign religions with OROMMUMMAA!

    Some converts have even the audacity to belittle the Maccaa Tulama, the only oromo organization that’s truly untainted by foreign influence.

    Jawar is politically dead among nationalist and philosophical oromos.The basics of any nationalism is philosophical and basically antithetical to any foreign religion.Both Islam and Christian have diluted oromuma and confused it.However,realistically I accept the idea of tolerance ,even though any foreign culture or language is contradictory to nationalism ,similarly religion theoretically can not accept any nationalism.Religion has no boundary,thus Jawar is confusing.Both religion and nationalism are antithetical.to
    He wants to build on the legacy of Jarra Abbaa Gadaa and Waaqo Guutu and he is going to also inherit their weaknesses.He is ill advised.He is looking at number and it does not work.

    Oromo and Oromummaa!
    I have been wondering what it means to native Oromo person the word “Oromo” and the concept “Oromummaa”
    My intention here is not to give you my interpretations of these terminologies, but to start to think together to come to some sort of understanding.

    Here is my take on the issues; Oromo is just an adjective and a noun to name and describe a person of Oromo descent. Oromo is like Armen, Arab, German…which is a name given to that particular socio-human entity. So let me know any opposing views.
    Oromummaa, on the hand hand , is the overall package that fully describe the Oromo person. It is a symbol of being one and emotional closeness to another oromo person. Oromummaa makes an Oromo person to feel some mythical sense of greatness of his culture, language, religion and ways of living.

    First of all, I am not sure where Jawar stand in respect to liberation of oromiya (Independent Oromiya State). In this day and age, one must make his/her stand clear to everyone so that people would understand where they stand. As far as I know, this person is everywhere both physically, and politically. I am not even quiet sure whether or not Jawar believes in Independent oromiya State or whether he advocate for the model of Lencoo Lataa, and Kamal Galchu. In oromo case, we must have firm stand whether we are with liberation camp, or the dreamers camp that think democracy is achievable within the Abyssinian empire. Thus, I would like to take this opportunity to politely ask this guy to make his stand firm when writing about oromo or speaking about oromo nation. It’s not good to be flip flopping, and all over the place when clearly there are two obvious camp within oromo national liberation movement. Please make your stand known to the mass oromo people, and don’t dance on the sideline/or between the two camp. Pick one so that it’s clear to everyone who you stand with, and who you against.

    I am also baffled by why he makes media round on Abyssinian TV, and radio talk show and speak in their language validating their claim of superiority? What is wrong with speaking in English? After all, we all are in Western world, and not in Abyssinian empire, or better yet speak in afaan oromoo, and let them translate it into their beloved Abyssinian language? Do we really need to appease Abyssinians, and world community at this stage when our people are being massacred, evicted from their land, and left to die? I think his stance need some recalibration, and clarity from my point of view. He has a right to do whatever he deems right to him, but as oromo nationalist we do not have the luxury of appeasing every one when we could not even appease ourselves. We do not have time to make media round , and talk about world peace when we have been denied peace on our own land oromiya (biyya oromo). World community will never rescue us it’s our responsibility to rescue ourselves. World community will never fight for us it’s our obligation to fight for ourselves, and the fight of media round alone will never liberate a nation either especially when you validate the superiority of your enemy.

    Second, I do understand this forum was organized by muslim religious group, and he was invited as a guest speaker. However, one must be very diligent when attempting to associate religion and political affairs. The issues of religion, and political affair are very sensitive issues. One has to be very clear in terms of what exactly they are saying, and explain it well so that it will not be murky and confusing to the audience. But, lets make one thing very clear here, we will never be Islamic Republic of oromiya, we will never be christian Republic of oromiya, and we will never be waqeffana Republic of oromiya, we will only be INDEPENDENT DEMOCRATIC GADAA REPUBLIC OF OROMIYA. We must always separate religion and state, so that we are not creating any confusion for our nation. We want a nation that respects every religion, but the interest of a nation always comes first. Everyone will have a right to practice their religion without the interference of the State, and at the same time religion should never interfere in the State affairs either.

    Thus, when taking stage and speaking about State and religion, one must make sure that people understand what exactly we are talking about, and we also have to make sure we are not confusing people. I think Jawar has failed to do that in this speech. I am sure his intention might be to make his audience in the auditorium feel comfortable, and tentative, but in tern he has raised many eye brows out side the auditorium. Also, we must not carried away/bogged down by this religion issues/agenda that TPLF has crafted/created for us simply to keep us busy. It’s one thing to creating our own agenda, but it’s totally different thing and very dangerous proposal to get mixed up in what abyssinian has set up for us. Our primary goal is to be free from Abyssinian colonialism, so that we can do whatever we want within Independent Democratic Gadaa Republic of Oromiya. once we free our nation from this brutal occupation, then every one will be free to practice any religion they desire. But, right now, religion is not our top priority, but liberation of oromiya is our top priority. I am not saying we should not talk about religion here, all I am saying is Independence comes first, and everything else comes next.

    It is surprising that Jawar is confussing many oromos knowingly or unknowingly. It is true that 50% of Oromia population is muslim (excluding Finfinne. Considering Finfinne as part of Oromia (it should be), the muslims in Oromia represents 45%. This is the reality. On top of this, this 45% is including non-oromo muslims such as Somalis, gurages, Aderes etc living in Oromia. The population of oromia (but not oromos in Ethiopia) in 2013 is about 35 milion (about 40 million including Finfinne). So how on earth can non-muslim oromians are only 20% (that means only 7 million are non-muslims?). currently, only the population of Shewa (without finfinne) is 8 million while that of Wellega is 5 million. That means without considering other zones the population of Wellega and Shewa is 13 million. So how Jawar wants to dismiss this reality in the day light by saying non-muslim oromos are only 20% (or only 7 million)? Where can you hide the rest of oromos? or do you want to export milions of non-muslim oromos to Miniapolis? or Do you wish them go to grave sudenly? I realy suprised and ashamed of Jawar teaching based on unrealistic data and information. As oromo we are all oromos. With out freedom of oromo, no one will be free in Ethiopia. But, wishing unrealistic things and teaching based on false data is too dangerous. So Jawar should clearly request appology for this confused teachings based on false data.
    After all it is completely wrong to confuse people by gussing that oromos non-muslim oromos are less than muslim oromos. where is the source of this data? people like Jawar talks considering the fact that hararge and Bale lands are wider than other zones and they assume therfore most oromos may be muslims in Oromia. this is wrong. Land area doesn’t indicate number of inhabitants(people) in that area. If we consider oromos in other regions like Amhara region, people remind only muslim oromos in Kamise area of wollo. what about christan oromos in wollo, Gojam, Gondar, and Benishangul Gumuz? Are they not oromos?
    Any way, the movment for oromo liberation should not be used for irrelevant personal interests like Jawar. Oromos should remain unite and all oromos deserve true and non-biased teachings.

    Oromummaa vs. Islamummaa and Khiristanummaa

    Mr. Jawar has failed teaching what is Oromummaa and the differences between one of the counterparts: Islamummaa.

    What is it an authentic Oromummaa?

    For the last two and so decades, the Oromo scholars h ave written extensive articles, books and have spoken about Oromummaa on conferences and community meetings. Oromummaa has seen or understood as a unifying factor for contemporary diverse Oromo nation in terms of religion, political ideology and social status. Most people understood the politics of Oromummaa in the context of being Oromo, speaking Oromo language (afaan Oromo) and/ or supporting ongoing liberation struggle for Bilisummaa or Independence of Oromia. For these Oromos it does not matter if they are practicing Christian, or Islam, or continually having foreign names for themselves and their children, dismembering themselves and families from the Oromo Gadaa Institutional practices and age classes. This is the common problem this writer has observed and attempting to address the issues and provide advice so as to understand the true sense of Oromummaa or authentic Oromummaa. In Oromo language or afaan Oromoo, Oromummaa has derived from Oromo (noun) like Lamummaa from Lammii, Hiriyummaa from Hiriyaa, Obbolummaa from obboleessa, Dubartummaa from Dubartii, Dhiirummaa from Dhiira, Qaallummaa from Qaallu. In this regard, what makes Oromumm unique is that it can bond all social groups into one. To foster an authentic Oromummaa, all Oromo social groups must be loyal to the authentic Oromo Gadaa institutions, cultural traditions and religious practices.

    In this context, we need to rethink the true meaning of Oromummaa and identify culturally relevant variables and redefine it in meaningful ways so as to foster Oromummaa as shared value by majority Oromo population. I am convinced that being an Oromo and speaking afaan Oromo simply do not foster the true meaning of Oromummaa and the integration of the Oromo people. Language is a vehicle that transports values of the native speaker. For example, a written Bible or Quran in afaan Oromo helps the Oromo literature to advance. However, this does not necessary means it advances the Oromo values. Many young Oromo men and women go to the Pentecostal Church (widely known as Penxxee) because they mistakenly believed that preaching the history of Bible in afaan Oromo would advance Oromummaa or Oromo values. Under the current Ethiopian oppressive regime, the Pentecostal Church or Penxxee has found Oromiyaa as fertile ground particularly in central Oromiyaa and Boranna region to plant foreign values by heartlessly uprooting and abandoning the fundamental and Indigenous values and beliefs of the Oromo people. As one can see, the Oromo problems are mainly self-inflicted.

    For example, replacing the Christian title such “priest, pastor or qessii” with the Gadaa Oromo title “Luba” would not produces either Oromummaa or foster Tokkummaa in any way. In the contrary, it abandon the fundamental social values or social capitals of Oromo people that invested in for centuries by Oromo forefathers and the value that like Jaarraa Abbaa Gadaa and his tens of thousands Oromo comrades fought hard, fallen and falling now to restore and defend these Oromo values or cultural identities. The Pentecostal Church, well known by Mekane Yesus Church of Ethiopia, was established in late 1950s by Northern European or Scandinavian missioners whose strategy was to implant the Protestant Church in Oromiyaa where the Orthodox Christian Church less established because of a strong resistance from the Oromo Gadaa institutions and less Amharic speaker. The evangelists in Oromiyaa foreign agents speaking afaan Oromo and using it as a vehicle to transport the European values and life style within the Oromo Gadaa Society at the expense of Oromoo Gadaa culture, tradition and beliefs. Evangelists teach Oromo children erroneously as if Oromo Arts and Music are objects of sin and they have to distance themselves from it.

    The same is true for Oromo who are the followers of Islam, except for their relative appreciation and enduring the Oromo arts and music such qarrmmaa, shaaggooyyee, beautiful Oromo dance. Qarrmmaa and Shaaggooyyee as Oromos cultural identity have endured many hardships than one can imagine under Ethiopian’s colonial regimes. Muslim Oromo people have fought hard to keep them shaaggooyee alive. Nevertheless, they also mistakenly believed that preaching Islam in afaan Oromo would advance Oromummaa. In practice, however it advances Isilamummaa just like Penxxummaa or Kirstanummaa. It seems offensive to the Oromo tradition when Musilm Oromo elders invited to open or close Oromo meetings in accordance with Oromo Gadaa tradition, he set tone for the meeting by saying “Allahu Akbar”, which was once Arabs military marching song in 1950s; meaning “God is Great”, in English. This is not the way Oromo Gadaa fathers (Abbootti Gadaa Oromoo) execute blessing tradition and does not foster Oromummaa and Tokkummaa in any way. This is simply an intentional distortion of the Oromo tradition that should be shared and protected by all in order to foster Oromummaa and Tokkummaa that seems everyone seeking for it.

    Let us be honest to ourselves, under such self-inflicted wound, and perplexing environment how we, the Oromo people, can foster Oromummaa and Tokkummaa? Mr. Jawar Mohammad has failed to answer this question and became part of the problems than solutions.

    It is mind boggling to the speech of the minority of minority man while he discarding nationality and nationalism as if it is “tribalism and nationalism stick” so all must accept Muslim identity than Oromoo identity, which ridicules to say the least.

    I have read read the writings on the speech Jawar Mohammed delivered at the meeting hosted by ‘RISALA INTERNATIONAL, an NGO founded by Muslim Oromos in Minnesota.

    This is simple to understand if one knows elementary statistics. If one finds it difficult to understand then he/she has a problem and needs to go back to studying fundamentals of statistics. From statistical point of view what was said regarding Islam and Oromo in Ethiopian demographic setting is 100% correct. It is based on scientific data and is not a wishful thinking or a propaganda aimed to harm any body.

    Here is the fact that each and every one of us should know, understand and accept that it is the truth.

    • In Ethiopia there are people following different religions: Muslims, Christians, Animists (traditional African Religions).
    • Among the Muslims a great majority are Oromos. All non Oromos added together constitute only the minority of Ethiopian Muslims.

    Therefore, statistically when you talk about Ethiopian Muslims there is no doubt that you are talking about the Oromo people. Because most Oromos are Muslims talking about the Oromo also means talking about the Muslims. On this basis it is right to say “Oromummaa” and “Islaamummaa” are complimentary and not contradictory in the setting under discussion. That is what Jawar said and there is no problem with that.

    The other point that none of those critics saw that Jawar was rallying support for the Oromo Liberation Struggle. He did that by saying “Muslims will be free when the Oromo is free.” The two are so interconnected that Jawar called upon all non-Oromo Muslims to support the Oromo struggle not merely to help the Oromo people but for their own freedom. This is the work of a learned man who understood strategic allies whose interests are intertwined. I hereby call upon all confused or angered Oromos to calm down and revisit the issue entirely. It is time to reflect on what we think we know, to better our knowledge. We need to be led not by emotions but by reason.

    For some this might be hard to comprehend because of many reasons. Lack of knowledge is one and it can be corrected by learning. Others include sentiments emanating from prejudice, hate, phobia, …etc. The latter is corrected by remolding and takes a lot of time. What has been said is enough for those devoted to learning. Others should find help from else where.

    May God help us to know our national interest and identify our natural friends and allies from our enemies.

    thanks so much for your comments!

    Jawar and likes must understand that any attempt to link orommummaa with any foreign religion is tantamout to killing oromommumma and oromo liberation itself, unless that’s their aim. We don’t need or accept any aid or help from these muslim countries which any way hate us. Whether they like or not Muslim and Kristian oromos must reassess themselves if they are really oromos. We never move an inch forward if someone uses some fake statistics to fulfufil his hidden religious agenda. Authetic oromommuma can ONLY be found in the hearts of those who practice genuine oromo cultures, traditions and religion. The rest is FAKE, like it or not, and Jawar as a scholar should have known this more than any body else. It is just another insult to our intelligence to say “no muslim is free until oromos are free”. Oromommuma has NOTHING to do with islam or christianity.

    I am very sure Jewar speech is not intended to harm Oromummaa. But, he comments one point mistakenly or with out Re-analysing the issue. We can correct him as follows.
    *Any Regime could allow fully to exercise your Religion without allowing you the right of self-determination based on ethnicity. So that, The demand of Muslim-protest could get an answer, with out giving an answer for Oromo demand.
    Finally my advice to my brother Jewar: Keep on your study about that empire, but be reluctant from assessing about every issue. There are a lot of Oromo Scholars who are leading Oromo struggle or teaching about Oromummaa, not only academically but also they passed through it. i think you are coming to the public only by preparing yourself on the Topic you’ve got from the host. Be careful, every host try to use your Popularity to achive their goal for the time being. Now it seems you are becoming more Controversial figure than an expert.
    i hope you got me. i ll look forward to see the Jewar with firm stand and 100% neutral from any Oromo camps with non-controversial ideas.

    When one makes speech, the main objective is not to appease her audience. The core objective of the speaker is to present truth and persuade his audience by presenting facts. Jawar has failed in this regard. Instead of presenting objective realities to his audience, his very Muslim back ground drugged him into playing the role of an appeaser, which I found so unfortunate.
    Jarar seems to have convinced himself that those Muslim brothers whom he was addressing in his speech lacked statistical and analytical skills. By extension he also undermined the intelligence of the rest of us to whom the material was made available on social networks.
    Jawar deliberately made a lot of effort to distort the role of RABA DORI. The Gada fighters of 16 century were not defending Islam. This is a gross mistake. It is an academic blunder. The RABA DORI fighters were defending their father land both from Musilman invaders and the Christian invaders. The RABA DORI forces never took side with any invaders ( muslim or Christian). Like some debtera writters, Jawar is trying to forge history here.
    Jawar’s argument that Muslim Oromos are the majority in Oromia is also in contradiction with available statistical evidences. According to the 2007 national census, 48.2% of the population of Oromia identified themselves Christian, 47.5% Islam and, and 3.3% Waaqeffata. At national level, Christians make 61.6%, Muslims 32.8% and animists are 4.6% of the population. Jawar has thus committed a statistical blunder either by deliberately undermining the knowledge of his audience or to forge a feel good history for his Muslim brothers while disappointing the rest. In my opinion, those who think their religion comes before their identity ( Oromumma) must not be appeased. That is to say, if JAWAR prefers his religion( MUSLIM) comes first to his Oromumma, no amount of logic will convince him to change his mind. By the same argument, we must not try to change the minds of those who bring their Christianity first to Oromumma. We have millions of such Oromos. The great majority of Oromo nationals however know the line between religion and their identity. Those are true Oromo nationals on whose shoulder the burden of freedom has to rest.
    Jawar also reduced the Oromo uprising against colonial oppression throughout the empire to something that it wasn’t: religious movement. It is true that there had been mass uprisings against the previous governments, both in areas dominated by Christian Oromo as well as areas dominated by Muslim Oromos. But none of such uprisings identified themselves as religious movement other than the move made by Jaarra Abba Gada lately. Such attempt to reduce nationalistic movement to religious movement is terrible insults to the sacrifices Oromo sons and daughters have made with a vision of free Oromia for all. Our objective is to reach nationhood which we aspire to build on true secular values. The Oromo nation is not aspiring to be a caliphate or Christendom. We are aspiring to establish a republic based on our egalitarian GADA tradition Jawar’s attempt to appease his listeners definitely has a far reaching consequence than he thought.
    In conclusion, Jawar has made statistical and historical blunders. He there for owe us explanation. By his own choice, Jawar has spoken on behalf of Oromo people. As an Oromo I want to hold Jawar accountable for the blunders he made. Jawar must support his “Muslim is a majority in Oromia” argument by statistical data. The RABA DORI has never fought along the Muslims. The RABA DORI fought gallantly to fend off both muslim invaders as well as Christian invaders. I found Jawar’s argument extremely disturbing and unsettling. Oromo nationals seek explanation on this historical blunder.
