Nigerian Muslim Group Calls For Immediate Ban Of 'Big Brother Naija'

A Muslim group in Nigeria has demanded that the West-African country's government ban the current season of the Big Brother Naija reality show which is broadcast on DStv all across Africa, describing the show's contestants as "immoral inmates" and adding that "the satanic TV show" is a platform for shamelessness, nudity and open promiscuity.

In an open letter to Nigeria's national assembly, the Director of the Muslim Rights Concern (Muric), Ishaq Akintola, said that the reality show should be banned from all MultiChoice platforms with immediate effect.

Within Nigeria, the group has become well-known for its outrageous and often outlandish arguments. Following Muric's statement, other Nigerians, including Muslim audiences, voiced their opinions saying that they don't support the group's statement.

Big Brother Naija carries an age restriction of 18 years and GOtv and DStv decoders come with a parental PIN lock mechanism to keep children from viewing inappropriate content.

On Friday Muric in its statement said that the reality show is shamelessly dragging children into a life of moral delinquency.
Muric called for an immediate ban of the television show and urged the Ministry of Information and Culture to act against Big Brother Naija before moral debauchery takes over Nigeria.
