the "tribes" and "nations" in the "former" colonies are creations of the colonial administrations in order to control the "native" populations.
ref: Saviors and Survivors by Mahmood Mamdani as well as Orientalism by Edward Said.

the origin of the western concept of "nations" as it evolved in the colonial territories was more in the nature of the "native" collaborators who ere trained by the colonials to perform "low level administration" in the colonies which were manpower intensive. these personnel were never trained or meant to provide the middle and upper level management which was reserved for the "mother" country. they wars of liberation were in many cases lead or usurped by these people who resented the colonials, not for what what they were doing to the native population, but for being excluded from the "goodies" of a ruling class - hence the rapacity and plunder perpetrated by these on the "native" population and their desire to emulate the "mother" country. ref; Imagined communities by Benedict Anderson.

The entire concept of nation state is completely kufr.
It not only goes against our Prophet pbh and the khullafah who rule after him but it goes against Belief in Allah and the fact Allah created Adam and Hawa.
