BBNaija Season 7: MURIC reacts to Khalid’s intimacy with fellow housemate, Daniella

By Olamide 26 Views

Professor Ishaq, The Director, Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, has responded to the conduct of Muslim BBNaija season 7 housemate, Khalid, on the reality show.

Videos capturing the private moments between Daniella and the 22-year-old level-up housemate, whose real name is Ismail Ahalu, have raised eyebrows online.


Social media users questioned his faith, especially after he told his love interest that their relationship could end if she doesn’t quit drinking, as it’s against his religion.

In response to Khalid’s conduct in the house, Akintola, in an interview with Vanguard, he said he cannot make any Shari’a pronouncement on Khalid.

Akintola, who described the reality show as satanic, said MURIC has repeatedly called on the federal government to ban the show.

“I have no comment concerning Khalid. Whatever anybody is doing in BBNaija is haram, BBNaija itself; the whole of it. So, it’s not about the aspect of alcohol or whatever. I was part of a group that went to court to stop BBNaija, but the system continues to encourage BBNaija, some of our people in the media, and journalists continue to encourage them because there’s money there.

“Nigeria worships money and then we are destroying our youths, who are watching this show and there are some irresponsible parents, too, who are watching and encouraging their children to watch it. The youth, whether a young man or an old man who goes to participate in BBNaija should be condemned. I will not pick any individual for particular criticism.

“Why will I pronounce a Shariah judgment on them? If it is in Oyo, Lagos or Enugu, they are not Shari’a compliant states. I can not make a Shari’a pronouncement on them. We can not bring Shari’a into BBNaija. I can not make any Shari’a pronouncement in a non-Shari’a issue, in a non-Shari’a state.

“Whatever is built on nothing is nothing. Whatever is built of haram is haram. We condemn BBNaija and whatever it produces, whatever is the product that comes out of it remains condemnable whether they are Muslims or Christians, we condemn every action that takes place in BBNaija and the government should ban it, but the government is not listening to what we are saying”. The publication quoted him as saying.
