Islamic group, MURIC, gives Falz seven days to withdraw ‘This is Nigeria’ video

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has asked singer, Folarin ‘Falz’ Falana, to withdraw his ‘This is Nigeria’ video and apologise to Nigerians, or face legal action.

The group said this in a statement signed by its director, Ishaq Akintola, and made available to PREMIUM TIMES.

In the recently released video, some girls dressed in hijab were seen dancing the “shaku shaku” dance.

Responding to criticisms that trailed the video, Falz explained that the girls were a representation of the abducted Chibok girls still in Boko Haram captivity. .

But MURIC, said the dancers in the video in no way depict the situation of the girls. .

The group also condemned “a character that dressed like a Fulani man, who suddenly abandoned his traditional guitar and beheaded a man” featured in the video.

Describing the video as “thoughtless, insensitive and highly provocative,” MURIC said it could brew religious and ethnic crisis. It also said the video is spiteful and intended to denigrate Islam and Muslims.

“MURIC rejects Falz’ explanation that the girls in hijab in his ‘Shaku Shaku’ dance symbolise the Chibok girls because nothing in the video indicates that the girls represent the 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? .“The video manifests ethnic bias against Fulanis while it ignored the criminal activities of ethnic militia of the Middle Belt who have also massacred Fulanis and rustled their cattle in their thousands.

“It is a hate video. This video has the potential of causing religious crisis of unprecedented dimension. It is an assault on the self-dignity of every Muslim. It is freedom of expression gone haywire.

“We therefore demand its withdrawal and an apology to Nigerian Muslims within seven days or the authors and their agents will face legal action if they fail to comply.”
.
The group called on security agencies and the National Film And Video Censors Board to clamp down on the video.
The group also said, ‘We therefore give notice of impending legal action against the artist behind the ‘Shaku Shaku’ video unless the latter is withdrawn and an apology is widely published within seven days.”

We reached out to Femi Soro, a member of Falz’s management team on Tuesday, for his reaction to the threat.

“We have nothing to say. We are not withdrawing the video neither are we commenting on their claims. If they have any grievance they can head to court and we will meet them,” he said.
