Prof. Ishaq Akintola MURIC Reacts

The director of Muslim Rights Concern, MURIC, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, has responded to the behavior of Muslim BBNaija Season 7 housemate, Khalid on the reality show.

Videos capturing the intimate moments between the 22-year-old housemate, whose real name is Ismail Ahalu, and his love interest, Daniella have caused a stir on the internet.

Social media users questioned his beliefs, especially after he told her lover that their relationship could end if she doesn’t stop drinking, as it goes against his religion.

Prof. Ishaq Akintola said in an interview with Vanguard, responding to Khalid’s actions in the house, that he cannot make any Sharia pronouncement on Khalid.

Akintola, who called the reality TV show 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.
