LONDON “” It’s not as if her look or her act are that shocking, but her moves have brought the wrath of Islamic fundamentalists upon her.
Deepika Thathaal, or Deeyah, was born in Norway of mixed Asian roots. Her father got her into music and has supported her throughout her career. All was going well until she dared to show a little skin “” and that’s when the threats started.

At a concert in Norway, she was attacked on stage by angry Muslim men who thought she was degrading their culture.
