Social Media Comedian Maraji caused a stir on social media after she took to Instagram to post a message that Jesus is the only way to heaven. She went on to condemn other religions implying that Christianity is the only true religion.
Twitter users have since reacted to her comment with some calling her out and others supporting her views. Also, others seem kind of indifferent about it :
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

Maraji said what your Pastor, your parents and your Sunday school teachers have been saying for years and you are on Twitter canceling her ?
Ok Twitter Excommunicado 🙌

Maraji really sacrificed herself to keep Twitter and Instagram entertained on a Public Holiday? Got to respect such selflessness.

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

I, a Muslim am not angry at what maraji said then why are you, a non Muslim angry?
Remember that people are also entitled to their opinion.

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.

While @Maraji_ is entitled to her belief that all religions other than Christianity are false, she’s insensitive to her fans in that regard. We all believe our religion is THE answer, but there’s wisdom in knowing how to deal with a diverse society, especially as a public figure.

Most Christians believe other religions are wrong and their adherents will burn in hell.
Most Muslims believe other religions are wrong and their adherents will burn in hell.
Same with Hindus, Sikhs, Judaists etc. It is the nature of Religion. Maraji didn't say anything new

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.
