Mariah Carey meets Islam
“To allow a western artist, especially Mariah Carey, who is well-know for her sexy clothing, to perform on Awal Muharram is disrespecting the sensitivities of Mulsims and can be seen as challening the status of Islam as Malaysia’s official religion,” said the letter. “We cannot accept such an immoral concert to be held on Awam Muharram or on any other days. … It is not only an insult to Muslims but will encourage moral degradation especially among youths.”
Malaysia is a Southeast Asian nation with about 25 million people – 60 percent of whom practice Islam.
