Several reactions have trailed her posts and quite a number of people are not having it cool as they regarded it blasphemous to their respective religions. Nevertheless, many Christians also stood by Maraji’s statement.
The reason Maraji’s statement generated such huge controversy was based on the fact that she chose the Eid celebration period of all days.
PERSONS: “God does not exist, Never did, never will”. “Satan is misunderstood, God was a killer.”

Everyday on radio, Muslims reiterate their quote saying 'There is no other God except Allah', did anybody dispute that 🤷♂️? No! But Maraji aired her own opinion yesterday and y'all are vexing 🤣

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.

This version of her "preaching the gospel" or "proclaiming faith" is highly questionable.😑

Maraji expresses her personal religious convictions in her private space and y'all coming for her? You'd rather have a politically correct, subservient version of her pandering to your every expectation. Most of y'all saying she's cancelled couldn't afford her in the first place

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.

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

Maraji said there's no Allah
Maraji said Jesus is the son of God
Maraji said Jesus is God
But what do I have to say? I'm lucky, honoured and proud to be a Muslim. 😊
