“YG Entertainment, the firm responsible for producing the track, said that they were willing to delete the segment.” Of course. Twenty-five years after the Islamic Republic of Iran issued the Salman Rushdie fatwa, non-Muslims worldwide know: if Muslims find something offensive, it has to go, no matter what. Non-Muslims have generally internalized Sharia’s blasphemy laws so that they never step over the line, or if they do, as in this case, they quickly comply with Muslim demands and reaffirm their submission.
“South Korean girl band slammed for misusing Qur’anic verses in song lyrics,” from World Bulletin, March 13:
South Korean girl band 2NE1 have angered Muslims all over the world after it was discovered that they used a verse from the Qur’an as lyrics in a track from their latest album.
The Korea Muslim Federation on Wednesday demanded that the band apologize for the misuse of the Qur’anic verses and revise the song lyrics.
On inspection, Muslims realized the lyrics were taken from verses 32-34 of the 78th chapter in the Qur’an.
The track, which went viral on the internet, offended many Muslims, who consider it blasphemous to use the Qur’an for purposes other than the worship and rememberence [sic] of God.
YG Entertainment, the firm responsible for producing the track, said that they were willing to delete the segment.
