Muslim Right Concern Body In War with Falz Over Hijab Video Issue 

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has said that featuring hijab-clad women dancing ‘Shaku Shaku’ in his latest video, singer Folarin Falana, otherwise called Falz, has offended Nigerian Muslims.

MURIC, on Tuesday, demanded that the musician popularly called Falz the Bahd Guy, withdraw his latest music video, This is Nigeria, or face legal action.

Convener of MURIC, Prof. Ishaq Akintola, in a telephone conversation with our correspondent, reiterated that the “video was a slap on the face of Islamdom.”

Akintola said, “That video is provocative. That video depicts Muslim women dancing Shaku shaku.

“According to Falz, it represents the Chibok girls. [But] Chibok girls cannot be known to be dancing. They are despondent, they are in despair, they are frustrated. They have not been rescued. There are so many of them in captivity and all Nigerians are praying for them. So, how can they be dancing?

“So, it is ironical; it doesn’t represent reality. The video itself is a slap on Islamdom.”

The Professor of Islamic Eschatology added that MURIC chose to take the legal route, rather than the route of violence, so as not to further denigrate the name of Islam.

“Some Nigerians cannot just be taking things for granted. This country is fraudulent. Our Constitution contains freedom of religion but people don’t give us that respect.

“Even the people who are supposed to call defaulters to order pretend to be sleeping when Muslims are knocked on the head.”
