Not so many people planned to wake up on Monday, August 12, 2019, to expect religion as the major topic of the day on social media, until Maraji set social media on fire with her comments. The social media comedian took to her Instagram page where she posted a message that Jesus Christ is the only way to heaven. She went on to dismiss other religions which have since caused an uproar on social media.
Religion is no doubt very prevalent in Nigeria as the average citizen holds their beliefs very dear to their hearts and do not even mind coming off as offensive to those they consider as unbelievers.
As usual, Twitter went wild over her comments and the reactions have been mixed as some people have called her out while others are indifferent and kind of support her views. So here are some of the reactions on Twitter over Maraji’s comments on making heaven.
Maraji is not talking to Muslims. I’m a Muslim, & I serve only one God. That God is called Allah in Arabic. Lots of Christians are Arabs or speak Arabic. God is Allah in Arabic (She no sabi). I believe in Jesus (Isa), may blessings of Allah be upon him. She’s not talking to U & I pic.twitter.com/lGspJtnZRc

Ok Twitter Excommunicado 🙌

Maraji let out her opinion and people aren't having it, she doesn't have to seek validations from anyone to do that.
Now the issue is "Wrong opinion" or "Wrong Timing"? pic.twitter.com/tSingTY5ks

Maraji was very insensitive posting that on their festive day knowing her influence and diverse audience.
However what Maraji said is the very foundation of Christianity…like a basic tenet of the religion.
I'm not a religious person but let's not pretend please.

As an atheist, you believe the idea of God is stupid, nobody comes for you.
As a Muslim, you believe only Muslims would go to Jannah, nobody comes for you.
Almost every religion says non-adherents will go to hell.
But the children of Ekwensu are crying over Maraji’s comments.

I've relocated several times and attended many churches & Christian schools. They all say Muslims worship false gods.
I've also read Muslim literature just for the fun of it. They also say Christians worship false gods.
Let's stop pretending to be shocked at what Maraji said.
