The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has raised an alarm of Big Brother Naija allegedly forcing youths into the world of nudity.
The Islamic Rights group which had before now repeatedly called for regulatory measures to be instituted against the reality show, described it as a “devil incarnate misleading Nigerian youths” and also appealed to the national assembly to back the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC) in tackling nudity on the show.
MURIC made the appeal in support of calls made by Segun Runsewe, the NCAC director-general, for power to sanction BBNaija and cross-dressers in the country.
The statement released by MURIC read;
“MURIC supports Runsewe’s call and we see no reason why the NASS will hesitate to give him all necessary backing. BBNaija’s reality TV show is the devil incarnate misleading Nigerian youth,” the group said.
“BBNaija is forcibly dragging our youths to a world of nudity, debauchery, and shamelessness. BBNaija constitutes a potent threat to every home. It is open rape of our cultures, values, and norms. BBNaija is luciferous.
“The NASS will have its name indelibly carved in letters of gold if it hearkens to the plea made by Runsewe.
“His appeal has revealed the weakness in our legal system. It has revealed that there are no extant laws powerful enough to stop romance and sex on our television channels. The time to give the law the teeth to bite is now.”
