The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, is now on fire over its call on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the airing of Big Brother Naija reality TV show.
The Islamic group, in a statement recently released, attacked the government of President Muhammadu Buhari for allowing the BBNaija show to go on.
MURIC labelled the show being aired on national television as immoral, dangerous and Bohemian.
Meanwhile, on social media, Nigerians have no support on MURIC’s call for the banning of the reality show, arguing that the show is rated 18.
Below are some reactions;
@DamyAdeyemi “Although I’m not a fan of #BBNaija2019, but asking govt to ban it is just laughable.”
@Fikkypearl “MURIC I’ve not seen you guys cry out against Muslim clerics that rape girls, yet it’s BBNaija that’s your headache. You think Nigeria belongs to you, the show is rated 18 and let me remind you there’s parental control on DSTV. Stop making noise Falz is still waiting for you in court.”
@Delaniyi “Must you watch it, BBNaija is rated 18.There are lot of porn site out there.If you dont go there, you wont see it.You and your kids should stop watching it if you think its immoral.”
@Ashawolord1 “Plsss tell ur MURIC to channel their energy on giving u better advice. We Nigerians are not complaining about #BBNaija at least that’s giving us much more pleasure than reading or watching ur Fulani herdsmen.”
@4eyedmonk “MURIC needs to know the difference between free-to-air TV and subscription based TV. DSTV where Big Brother is airing is a subscription based TV where you go to pay to consume content, because you want to not because you don’t have other options.”
@Buzuzu7 “Dear MURIC more Nigerians die from hunger and depression and many more have no access to tv talk more of cable tv. Direct this energy at pressuring this government to make good policies that will have positive impact on the people.BBNaija2019 is the least of our problems.”
@Balogun3103 “MURIC sends petition letter to Buhari to cancel #BBNaija2019 with immediate effect. Nigeria is not Saudi Arabia.”
@Zaddy_Nomso “#BBNaija is a paid TV station, if you don’t like it watch Nat Geo Wild. Some of our Moral leaders are assaulting Women and getting protected. MURIC where is this energy when there is suffering and killing in the land?
@Teefhay “As a muslim sef I’m sorry to say this but the leader of this MURIC is a fool.”
@UniqueItohan “So they are seeing tv reality show but blind to the havocs Fulani herdsmen are committing? You are telling me killing people in their own community, land or house is normal and can be over looked.”
@Ayurmeday “To start with, are we in a Muslim Country? Secondly, will stopping the reality show solve the country’s problems?
