Popular journalist and host of #MeetTheCandidates, Kadaria Ahmed has been under attack for tweeting that she would not use the Hijab, a mandatory headgear for Muslim ladies who have reached the age of puberty.
The 51 year old broadcast journalist, who drilled President Buhari, Alhaji Atiku and the presidential candidates of some other political parties in the weeks leading to the presidential election told her critics to perfect their faith before focusing on others.
Trouble started when she tweeted over the weekend, a picture of herself at the salon, with the caption; “today, I took a big risk. Started noticing my hair is greying. I am that age so it wasnt much of a surprise. However, I soon realised I don’t like the ‘mixed’ look. Neither, grey nor black but I also hated using black dye. So I resolved to experiment by hurrying things along”.
With the level of criticism she got, she’s now defended herself with another strongly worded tweet that reads, ‘you get high on codeine & weed, your hijab is used as cover to do all sorts. You continuosly pass judgement on your fellow Muslims as if you are Allah. You back bite, cheat &steal public money but want to police my morality. My friwnd go perfect your religion first. Munafukai!’.
