MURIC threatens to sue Falz over #ThisisNigeria video

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) are unlike the rest of us who think Falzthebahdguy’s recently released parody video is brilliant. The group, in a statement by its director, Ishaq Akintola, are demanding that Falz withdraws the video and apologises to Nigerians as its content is “thoughtless, insensitive and highly provocative”.

According to the group, the portrayal of “girls in hijab dancing Shaku Shaku” is a misrepresentation of the abducted Chibok girls. The statement read, “At least none of the Chibok girls have been seen dancing like a drunkard. They are always in pensive mood. Do they have any cause to be dancing? Are they happy?”

Describing This is Nigeria as a “hate video”, MURIC says the video has the “potential of causing religious crisis” so its creators should be “taken to court to serve as a deterrent to others”.

The statement by the group has drawn varied reactions on social media. Twitter users are condemning MURIC for its failure to respond to more pressing societal concerns:

Cheers to forever missing the point, MURIC! Cheers!!
