Nobody is certain whether the Avril Lavinge concert on Aug 29 is on or off. PAS politicians would love to see the Canadian rocker banned while ministry officials seem non committal - saying the timing isn't good (to please the Mullahs) but for safe measure, say they would only make a decision next week (just in case, someone high up tells them this banning business is a lot of bull). The statement from Unity, Culture, Arts and Heritage Minister Datuk Shafie Apdal isn't very clear either. The organisers, meanwhile, have yet to receive any letter to tell them the concert is off and tickets are still being sold. The advertisements continue on the radio and magazines. An online protest against the possible concert ban (www.avrillavigne.my/protest) has started. The organisers and the ministry officials have met for the past 48 hours. But for the time being, Malaysia has become a laughing stock around the world - simply because of a PAS politician and indecisive ministry officials.
