The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has made a bold move to stop the airing of reality TV show Big Brother Naija (BB Naija).
The Muslim group wrote a letter to President Muhammadu Buhari to demand that the Federal Government stops the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality show. MURIC expressed its disgust about the show and sought that it be stop immediately.
In a statement, the group decribed the reality TV show as ‘immoral, dangerous and bohemian’. It was issued by Professor Ishaq Akintola, who is the group’s director. It demanded that Ministry of Information and Culture and the National Orientation Agency does something about it.
An excerpt of the statement goes thus; “We are being forcibly dragged to a world of nudity, shamelessness and open promiscuity. Inmates of BBNaija kiss, romance and engage in sex openly. BBNaija is bohemian, anti-social, crude and immoral. It constitutes a potent danger to every home. BBNaija is satanic. It is unacceptable.
“Where are our norms and values? Is it part of African culture to engage in sex in the open? Where are the authorities? Is the Ministry of Information and Culture sleeping? Is the National Orientation Agency on sabbatical? Who will protect our children from this despicable onslaught? Who did this to Nigeria?
““This reality show is dragging our children into a life of moral debauchery. It is robbing them of the last vestiges of honour. It is deleting the word ‘shame’ from their vocabulary. BB Naija has alienated our youth from the elders. A yawning lacuna now exists between the young and the old. Irreversible social crisis looms.”
