UNISLAMIC: Nigerian Kidnapping of School Girls - Dr Yasir Qadhi

We already know a Muslim scholar condemned Boko Haram before most of the right wing had heard of Boko Haram. However, here's a reputed Muslim scholar, Dr Yasir Qadhi, stating that the kidnapping of the school girls in Nigeria by Boko Haram is 'totally un-Islamic':
For the last few days we have been hearing of the kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls by the Nigerian group Boko Haram.

This is a strange doesn't make any sense. Forget the fact it is totally un-Islamic, it just seems like an extremely stupid and counterproductive act, since it will make the entire country unite in hating them, and damage their credibility.

Can our Nigerian brot
hers and sisters (and alhamdulillah I have thousands of them following this page) please help us out and shed some light in the comments below on this issue? Is this story true? In which case we can say 'Boko Haram is haram'!! (sorry, had to squeeze that in somewhere).

Or is there something else that we are not hearing?! And please link to reputable article and sources of alternative points of view if they exist. Again, I'm just asking about this one incident. [Source]

The story of the missing Malaysian plane was non-stop on every single news channel for about a week or two - yes CNN decided to carry it on a bit longer. They knew the likelihood of the passengers surviving was slim to none, but they continued to pump it out there. We also invested millions into the search. These young girls could potentially survive if we do our best to find them. Why don't we and the media take all of that energy we used on the plane story, revitalize it, and put it into this search instead?

“Boko Haram’s Abubakar Shekau: ‘I abducted the 223 Nigerian schoolgirls’,” Yahoo News, May , 2014 LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria’s Islamic extremist leader is threatening to sell the nearly 300 teenage schoolgirls abducted from a school in the remote northeast three weeks ago, in a new videotape received Monday. Abubakar Shekau for the first time also claimed responsibility for the April 15 mass abduction, warning that his group plans to attack more schools and abduct more girls. “I abducted your girls,” said the leader of Boko Haram, which means “Western education is sinful.” -
