Maraji Comes Under Fire for Making Islamophobic Posts

Maraji is catching a lot of flak after her religious bigotry found its way to the internet, triggering a heated reaction from Nigerians.

Posting on her Instagram Stories, the comedian whose real name is Gloria Oloruntobi asserted her belief in Jesus and quoted a verse from her bible which said that the Christian God is the ‘only way’ to heaven. And when a fan confronted her in the DMS, she doubled down on her statement.

“Our salvation is based on the fact that Jesus came to take the sin of the world and died in our stead, not Muhammad not Alla, but Jesus. He is the only way,” she wrote.

See her posts below:

This quickly stirred a heated reaction from fans and critics, with many noting how insensitive it for the comedian to post such at a time when Muslims are celebrating Eid al-Adha.

However, some folks have noted that the comedian has only regurgiatetd the religious bias we normalise daily in our worship places and homes.
