The Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has written a petition to President Muhammadu Buhari calling on him to ensure that the Federal Government stops the airing of the 2019 edition of the reality television show, Big Brother Naija.
MURIC, which expressed disgust at the show, said the airing of the 2019 edition of the Big Brother Naija Reality Show should be shut down immediately.
In a statement issued by its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, the Muslim group labelled the reality show as ‘immoral, dangerous and bohemian’ and also wondered why the Ministry of Information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency are doing nothing over the show.
The group also condemned the quest for wealth by the youths, which according to them has led to immorality, internet fraud, ritual killings and other vices.
MURIC called on Christians and Muslims to put their differences aside and unite against the “immoral” show. The group said the show undermined cultural values and thus must also be rejected by traditional institutions. Meanwhile, many Twitter users have attacked MURIC for calling for the ban on the reality TV show.
