Avril Lavigne also cannot ah?
This is unbelievable but then, what do you expect from PAS? The party has consistently called for a ban of concerts, gender segregation and the imposition of hudud laws. They have never changed. Encouraged by its success in stopping dangdut queen Inul Darista from performing at the Merdeka Stadium, the Federal Territory PAS is now calling for a ban of the Avril Lavigne concert. Its chief Kamaruzaman Mohamad is saying the Canadian rocker's "punk elements" are unsuitable. Please-lah. Are we living in the dark ages or what? A good clean concert also has to be banned, we are becoming a laughing stock. If you feel so strongly about the concert, just stay at home lah! Why deprive others from having a good time? This is not Iran or Afghanistan, so please don't impose on Malaysians your kind of theocratic rule. Last month, Kelantan PAS' moral police squad stopped an underground music gathering in Kota Baru. At the rate things are going, it looks like pop concerts would have to be held in Genting Highlands only from now. But then, when the mullahs take over, the casino complex would be shut down too.
