Just after the news went viral, many people were left trolling him after because he married a Muslim. He has responded to critics who claimed his wife, a Muslim had sold her dignity to the devil by marrying him (a Christian).
Kitili walked down the aisle with his girlfriend Amina Mude last Friday but this did not go well with a section of Muslims online.
They were not happy with their cross-cultural and cross-religious union. They attacked the couple and Kadra Mohammed said:
THIS IS NONSENSICAL, ABSURD, IMPLAUSIBLE, RIDICULOUS AND DOWNRIGHT INSULT ON THE FACE OF ISLAM AND OUR MOST DIGNIFIED SOMALI CULTURE. THIS BEAUTIFUL LADY SOLD HER DIGNITY AND WHOLE BEAUTY TO THE DEVILS AND DESPISED OUR BEAUTIFUL PROPHETS’ TEACHINGS.
Ben Kitili replied to the trolls with a warning telling them to have their own opinions but should not cross the line and affect his family because he is ready to fight for his family saying:
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 CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO YOUR OPINION..HOWEVER, SHOULD ANY OF YOU CROSS THE LINE AGAINST THE LAW – LIKE I SAID, I’LL PROTECT MY FAMILY WITH MY ALL..
IN MARRIAGE AS IN LIFE, GOD IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN RELIGION..GOD BLESS YOU.
He also showered his wife with love and promised to love her till the end.
A BEAUTIFUL DAY WHEN I MARRIED THE WIFE OF MY YOUTH, WHO I PROMISE TO LOVE AND PROTECT WITH MY ALL..THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR WARM WISHES AND PRAYERS..WE ARE HUMBLED.
Despite all the hate, the two got married in a beautiful wedding full of family friends and a lot of laughter. See below:
