There is no fun in Islam: Malaysian Islamic Party objects to MTV concert

Worth remembering and repeating: “there is no fun in Islam.”

Malaysia’s overtly Islamic political party, known as PAS, is probably the most dangerous political party in the nation. They are the most pro Jihad, pro Sharia, pro terrorist, pro Taliban, pro bin Laden, pro Al Qaeda (et cetera) group of pious Mohammedans that you can imagine. And they make the crooks of UMNO (the current gang of Muslim thieves running Malaysia’s kleptocracy) look good by comparison most of the time. And that’s really saying something. 

One thing PAS — as well as any pious believer — is definitely not in favor of is music. Practically anytime a foreign musician books a concert anywhere in the country, or is rumored to be doing so, you can bet your bottom ringgit that the Thugs for Allah are going to object. Shrilly and repeatedly. From ‘PAS slammed over MTV protest’ by Zuhrin Azam Ahmad and Lee Yen Mun in The Star, 21 July 2011:

PETALING JAYA: PAS’ objection to the MTV concert came under fire from various groups which described the party as narrow-minded.

MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said PAS was being insensitive to the reality of multi-ethnic Malaysia by imposing its values on others.

“Young people should be allowed to enjoy popular culture as long as they do not violate societal norms.

“I do not see any contradiction between the Asian values (practised in
Malaysia) and the MTV (World Stage Live in Malaysia) concert,” he told The Star yesterday.

PAS Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad and the party’s Youth chief Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi had objected to the concert, scheduled to take place at i-City in Shah Alam on Sunday.

Khalid said he was opposed to the concert because it was being held too close to the fasting month and that the venue was not conducive, while Nasrudin said the party was not agreeable
to concerts which encouraged immoral activities.

MCA state secretary Wong Koon Mun said the protest by PAS showed the party might claim to take on a moderate approach, but “intrinsically, PAS remains
dogmatic”.

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin said PAS’ opposition proved it was a narrow and conservative party at heart.

Narrow minded, dogmatic and conservative? To a devout Muslim, such words must register as compliments of the highest kind.

These weasel-worded half-apologetic statements from MCA are about the strongest stances for freedom that any group of Malaysian politicians is willing to make openly, which should indicate how far Malaysia has sunk into the Islamic morass. In recent years, PAS or its affiliates have also objected to concerts by Adam Lambert, Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, Avril Lavigne, and many others.  Not that I am necessarily a fan of any of the above-named artists, but the fact of the matter in indisputable: Islam murders artistic freedom, and sometimes artists themselves.

Remember that PAS is part of Anwar Ibrahim’s ‘Pakatan Rakyat’ coalition, which is an unholy marriage of Leftists and Jihadists that is angling to kick uber-corrupt UMNO & Company out of Malaysia’s Federal Government. Does anyone think that Anwar, a supposed ‘moderate’ Muslim, will be lecturing to his jihadist brethren about the errors of their ways, about how they’re ‘misinterpreting’ their religion of peace and moderation?

Don’t bet the farm on it.

    There is no fun in Islam, indeed…

    Of course, some Muslim apologists will jump in here, and claim that”this being a quote from the Iranian Ayatollah Khomeini”that this somehow only applies to Shi’ite Islam, and that Sunni Islam is just a barrel of laughs.

    Of course, this assertion is absurd. Strictures on music and its outright banning is very much a part of Islam.

    One need not be a big fan of the work of Adam Lambert, Beyonce, Gwen Stefani, or Avril Lavigne specifically to realize that a place where their music is banned will be poorer for it.

    Also, this article shows that the Anti-Jihadist is fully aware of the increasing Muslim supremacy not just of the current administration in Malaysia, but that several examples of the political opposition are as bad or worse.

    I was never given any reason to believe that the Anti-Jihadist thought otherwise”but now he has made his position explicitly clear. I hope the poster who was concerned by this seeming omission is happy to see the subject here addressed.

    Boy, these Moslem Dudes sure are hypocritical. No rock concerts allowed, too much fun. But yet Moslem Men frequently imbibe in real crazy fun activities like forcible rape gangbangs, which some would say is a damned crime.

    Paris and Oslo, too.

    Mohammed said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.”

    For its part, the leadership team at MTV, always on the cutting edge of cultural criticism, has done a fine job with their work on Moslems.

    MTV should drag Kristiane Bakker, their 80’s front-girl, out of retirement inorder to introduce the bands. .after all, she’s a muslima now fronting the ‘Islam is friendly’ campaign that was launched last year. Note to self: Maybe not. Bad idea. Shouldn’t encourage them.

    As usual, anti-Jihadist, you don’t reveal very clearly the true face of the Malaysian Opposition that consists of the most dangerous alliance of the Chinese-dominated Communist/Maoist-loving party DAP, and the Islamic Nazis of the murderous Jew-hating Muslim Brotherhood/Qardawi-loving Anwar Ibrahim of PKR party and the thuggish Iranian-Mullah like Muslim extremist party, PAS, to form the Malaysian OPPOSITION party!

    UMNO is evil (it was mostly due to Anwar being Deputy PM when he infiltrated UMNO as an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood – he managed to turn Muslim-Malays and UMNO to be more fanatical),yes – but at least it is in alliance with the (non-Communist) Chinese-dominated MCA and Indian-dominated MIC to form the majority ruling BN, that can still reform the half-moderate Malay-Muslim UMNO (although PAS/PKR infiltrators are hijacking UMNO, turning it to be more fanatical – imagine if MCA and MIC are not in the alliance with UMNO; how dangerous it would be for Malaysia and non-Muslims)!

    Malaysian politics is not yet the same like in savage Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt or elsewhere where Islamic rule is absolute. This is because in Malaysia, we have a big percentage of strong non-Muslims, around 40% – this is why, Malaysia is not an Islamic country like those savage Islamic nations. Further, the non-Muslims in Malaysia are not a small minority as in those savage Islamic nations.
    Thus my intention in criticizing your simplistic general approach to politics in Malaysia, Anti-Jihadist, is to prevent such calamity as in these other savage absolute Islamic-ruled countries, which will be, if the Malaysian Opposition controls all Malaysia. They’re already causing havoc with Arabic/Iranian-style aggressive Sharia laws in their few states that they control. In the West, we can try to criticize Islam aggressively, in the hope of destroying Islam’s dominance and aggression because in the West, is mainly free to do so. But in Islamic-ruled countries, it’s not possible for non-Muslims there to criticize Islam as much as they want; thus my perspective is in terms of the practicality in terms of achieving some justice due to the complex politics of dynamically multicultural Malaysia. Just by criticizing Islam alone instead of analyzing the complexity of politics behind it, is not enough to protect the non-Muslims in Malaysia, but by being smart and to ensure that the Islam practised in Malaysia (especially of non-Arabic/non-Iranian version) do not cause much more suffering to the non-Muslims or even liberal Muslims, including under the Opposition rule right now. But as I realized after voting like a fool of the Opposition due to simplistically generalizing as Anti-Jihadist here; how dangerous the Opposition is where such suffering of non-Muslims and liberal Muslims are much more exacerbated. Because Islamic rule once become absolute in all Malaysia, especially as dreamed by the Muslim Brotherhood/Iran through the Opposition Anwar of PKR and PAS of OIL-RICH Malaysia, it will be too late then like what’s happening in Egypt, Tunisia and Yemen right now.

    And let’s not forget that it isn’t just rock artists, or pop tarts, or other manifestations of what some would regard as the decadent West, that Islam objects to.

    ALL music is suspect. If full sharia were followed to the letter, not one note of music would be heard in dar al Islam.

    Sharia anathematises music. Sacred or profane, vocal or instrumental. In the Hadith, stringed instruments and flutes are specifically identified as things to be done away with, right along with all the Christian crosses. Violins, lutes, flutes…and crosses…all so much wicked rubbish, according to the authoritative Traditions of Islam.

    The Hadith state that allah will pour molten lead into the ears of anyone who listens to ‘a songstress’…and that includes the likes of Kiri te Kanawa singing Bach, or Mahalia Jackson singing gospel, just as much as the likes of Beyonce gyrating on stage.

    The Quran’s vision of Paradise is a sort of brothel-cum-garden oasis; there is wine and women (the houris) and pretty boys for cup-bearers (and perhaps for other purposes), but…there is no music. In the Muslim Paradise neither people nor angels sing. I once went through the Dawood translation of the Quran looking at all the places where it describes Paradise, and in none of them was there any mention of music. Whereas music is part and parcel of the Christian concept of heaven: so much so that the stereotypical image of ‘heaven’ in the modern western mind is someone in a white robe sitting on a fluffy cloud playing a golden harp (which harp of course, being a stringed instrument, is strengst verboten under sharia).

    There is no state-sponsored symphony orchestra in Saudi Arabia or Iran. The teaching of music – of any kind of music – has been banned, in Iran. In Italy and in the UK Muslim parents have refused to allow their children to attend the music lessons that form part of the standard curriculum.

    There *was* a western-style symphony orchestra in Iraq…but it had to shut down, because the musicians received death threats.

    Music and musicians *exist* in dar al Islam but they exist *in spite of* Islam, and whenever and wherever sharia grows strong, musicians are among the first people to be attacked. And there is no music in the mosque, no continually elaborated unfolding tradition of liturgical music such as one finds among Jews or Christians or Hindus or Buddhists. To the extent that Sufis embrace and practice music, they are – strictly speaking – going *against* Islam.

    Rape is a holy religious activity for Muslims totally sanctioned by Mo/allah!!

    Your accusations against Anti Jihadist is baseless. Anti Jihadist clearly states that PAS is the most dangerous political party in Malaysia as it wholly supports Jihad, Syaria, terrorism, Al Qaeda, Taliban, bin Ladin and the rest of the idiots who are trying their hardest to shove this illogical religion down our throat. (Read the first paragraph of the article – it’s there!)
    Your raving accusations is something a deluded pro-Jihadist can be proud of.
