Human right activist, Aisha Yesufu has been called out for dancing at campaign rallies while wearing her hijab.

On social media a post from an angry Muslim slammed Aisha for showing off her dancing skills while dressed in her hijab at Peter Obi’s campaign rally.

Aisha Yesufu has been on the campaign trail with the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to call on Nigerians to vote for him in the upcoming general election.

In the post making rounds, a Twitter user with the name Aboo Farhin cautioned Aisha to remove her hijab anytime she wants to vibe to a music at a campaign rally.

The post said; “Dear Aisha Yesufu, please the next time you think of vibing to music on the campaign trail, excuse yourself and remove the hijab. We cannot risk having female Muslims belabored with having to explain themselves everytime you are caught in a web of gaffes like this.”

Reacting to this, netizens countered the Twitter user as they questioned other male Muslims such as Bola Tinubu and Kashim Shettima who dance to music at their campaigns.

Here are some comments;

ifeyinwa_joy_chiamonwu: It is this mindset that have kept us where we are today. What's wrong with Aisha's dancing? Nigerian and Iranian Muslims really have so many learning and unlearning to do. They should go and learn true Islam from Dubai, Morocco and Qatar.

n6oflife: But Muslim Male candidates like BAT and Shettima Can go to rally and Dance Buga abi. Awon Werey.

endylight1: But this woman works out with a Hijab and that’s not a problem but dancing with Hijab is a problem. This Religion sha

sultan_muhammad_kuta_ll: There are muslims and there are people who think they are muslims.

Islam is our identity and if you must be a muslim u have to abide by our rules and regulations. The teachings of our beloved prophet muhammad (SAW). People commenting here that religion is the poster problem, yes in this case it should be. Her behavior is not that of a muslim woman. He only said drop the hijab. She cant say she is muslim and act this way. She can drop the religion and do whatever she want.

mrpresidennnt: Na Religion go make Nigeria scatter Las las if we no dey careful. Me I don’t see anything wrong in what she did sha

mheenarh__: This is one of the reasons why this country isn’t moving forward.

idi_kano_jnr: Y'all talking about religious mindsets , well hell yeah our religion, that's our way of life we've got to do everything by the book or at least try our best to be good ambassadors of our faith ..... Everybody sins but at least hide it from the public ????‍♂️

t.e.e._f.a.h: Lol na why Nigeria still dey like this. Until you people learn to see beyond religion and tribes, y’all aren’t ready!!!. Even youths are justifying votes based on tribe, such a pity. She is dancing, you can’t dance with hijab? Or was she twerking or giving bad moves.. or i forgot, the song she was dancing to was condemning The Holy Book or what exactly!!! I’m a muslim and y’all just want to make my religion so bad.. all this kind of comments would even piss people off from the religion! Is that what the Holy Book says!

05.05.1700: But females with hijabs in Qatar vibe to hip hop songs at the World Cup and even features in the official track…Werey ni yin egbon
