Rihanna concert - PAS is upset, as expected.
As expected, anti-concert crusader Kamaruzaman Mohamed has called for a boycott of the Rihanna concert. The Federal Territory PAS Youth leader who has made a name for himself by calling for a ban of almost every pop concert in the city has claimed this time that his protest was in solidarity with the Palestinian people. The concert, he said, was funded by the Americans as Rihanna lives in the United States. Rihanna, in his words, "is an agent of polluting people's minds." Seriously, this guy needs to have his head examined. Supporting her concert means supporting the offensive by the Israelis in the Gaza, by his warped logic. Is this guy serious or what? It's really becoming tiresome objecting to this guy. But he's consistent and he is obviously encouraged because not too many people, with the exception of Karpal Singh, want to speak up against PAS. Hudud is becoming acceptable for many while taking on the likes of mad caps like Kamaruzaman is regarded as irrelevant and dismissed as trivial. See Ktemoc for his views on the PAS protest.
