Muslim students ask FG to ban BBNaija, say ‘it’s evil’

By Esther Innocent

The Lagos chapter of the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) has called on the federal government to ban the Big Brother Nigeria (BBNaija) reality TV show for “promoting immortality and social vices.”

In a statement to commemorate the 1443AH Islamic new year and this year’s International Youth Day, the group said the show poses dangers to the youths.

According to the statement released by Miftahudeen Thanni, its president, the group also said the show is a major distraction to youths in the country.

It called out the government for “turning a blind eye” to the display of nudity on the show while its officials “disturb, harass, intimidate female Muslims who use the hijab.”

“The show negates everything about morality. It is evil and a danger that could damage the strong moral foundation that many Nigerian societies are known for. It is the worst distraction for Nigerian youths,” it said.

“This immorality extends beyond just nude dressing to encouraging youths to sell their bodies to get fame and make money. We express our total rejection of the programme and call on the government to ban it.

“This indirect porn programme is also giving teenagers a bad orientation that making it in life must come with a price of exposing their bodies, thereby causing high cases of rape in the society.”

The group also called on the Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC) and the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) to scrap the show.

“Relevant broadcast authorities should pay attention to the damaging nature of this programme. It is ruining the lives of youths. If Nigeria is serious about fighting crimes, we cannot afford to leave this kind of programme unscrapped,” it added.
