There has been a backlash and mixed reactions following a viral video of some Muslim clerics sighted praying at the housewarming pre-party of a cross-dresser, Bobrisky in Lagos.
The Social media users took to Twitter to leash out their disappointment in the clerics who went praying for the controversial personality.
The cross-dresser, cladded in white attire with silver designs and a silver headgear to match, was seated on a chair in the middle with the clerics seated round on the tiled floor to offer prayers.
The social media users disclosed that the clerics have relegated God’s doctrines for monetary gains.
Some of the tweets read:
@Tee_Classiquem1 tweeted: “Religion leaders are forfeiting the words of God for the sake of money, how can Alfas and Chief Imam that a whole community is looking upto be attending Bobrisky house warming party? Is this not like endorsing cross dressing under Islam, this is so embarrassing to watch.”
@Bakrshah1 said: “Islam expressly forbids men who imitate women and vice versa. This is a non debatable position. Should they pray for him? Yes! But not when he is dressed up as a woman. This Alfas are just about their pockets these days.”
