Ben Kitili responds to backlash over marrying a Muslim woman
The Christian-Islamic union has caused some nasty controversy on social media
When the couple shared photos from their big day most of the comments were positive, but they also received a lot of backlash for their cross-cultural and cross-religious union since he is Kamba-Christian and Amina is a Borana-Muslim.
Some people even went overboard and claimed that Amina mude had ‘sold her dignity and whole beauty to the devils and despised Prophet Mohammed’s teachings.’
Following the mixed reactions to their big day, Ben Kitili commented that he was happy to have married the wife of his youth and emphasised that God is more important than religion.
“A beautiful day when I married the wife of my youth @amina_mude, who I promise to love and protect with my all..thank you all for your warm wishes and prayers..we are humbled.. To all my Muslim and Somali brothers and sisters, especially my shemejis from Wajir; thanks a lot for your kind words and great reception.. To those who are not so welcoming, we forgive you..you have a right to your opinion as long as you dont cross the line..God is more important than religion..#WajirsFinest,” Kitili tweeted.
