Muslim Group Backs Move Against #BBNaija, Cross Dressing, Porn Skits

We must rise to save our nation from the acceptance of imported culture that are alien and inconsistent with the moral value our Nation commands.

The leadership of the Muslim Students’ Society of Nigeria (MSSN) B-Zone writes to throw its weight behind the renewed call for the regulation of the reality TV shows like Big Brother Naija, soft porn skits, and cross-dressing in Nigeria.

This show of solidarity is coming after the Director General, National Council for Art and Culture (NCAA), Otunba Segun Runsewe asked the House of Representatives to give a legal framework to go after the organizers of Big Brother Naija (BBN) over nudity in the show. The council is also seeking powers to arrest and prosecute crossdressers in the country.

While speaking on behalf of the Muslim students of 17 southern states in Nigeria, it is imperative to also make our stand known to the public especially now that immorality has been taken as the new normal in our society.

The call by Runsewe isn’t out of place and there are no two ways to look at issues raised against BB Naija reality show, soft porn skits, and cross-dressing in Nigeria. What is bad is bad! What is immoral is immoral!

You will recall that the second stanza of the National anthem which is now called the National prayer has it that “Help our youth the truth to know”. It is duty-bound on all well-meaning Nigerians to also join the call for this regulation before we all lose hold of the truth.

The growing rate of immorality in the country is worrisome and we can’t exonerate the effect of reality shows crammed with nudity or soft porn skits that are all over social media.

Recently, the minister of women affairs, Pauline Tallen, says there has been an increase in the cases of fathers raping daughters in Nigeria. What a shame! We must rise to save our nation from the acceptance of imported culture that are alien and inconsistent with the moral value our Nation commands.
Some will argue with economic values and freedom of association and speech to justify these immoralities but fail to understand that the damage these show of shame is causing to our social-cultural value, economic and encouragement to criminality is far higher than the insignificant gratification it provides.

We, therefore, call on all stakeholders; the National Assembly, the National Council for Art and Culture (NCAA), Nigerian Broadcasting Commission (NBC), and the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) to give the deserving attention on all the issues raised and help our youth know the truth. May Allah bless our Nation.
