“Moderate” Malaysia: State government cancels music festival to avoid offending Muslims


Islamic law is …. anti-human. Anti-life. And Muslims appear to be determined to impose that law upon non-Muslims, even in “moderate” Muslim countries such as Malaysia. Islam forbids music, and apparently in this case Muslims were also outraged by the fact that “a 30-second promotional video of the event…featured bikini-clad girls on the beach, a club scene, and participants enjoying other activities such as Yoga, snorkelling and beach volleyball.” As the Ayatollah Khomeini said, “There is no fun in Islam.” Malaysian authorities, by cancelling this festival, have shown that not only is that true, but there is also no fun for non-Muslims in Muslim countries.

PETALING JAYA: Terengganu MCA has blasted the PAS-led state government for banning the 2018 Island Music Festival on Pulau Redang, saying that it reflected their shallow mindset and that it has seriously lost touch with time and reality.

Its State Liaison Committee Chairman Datuk Toh Chin Yaw said the state government should indicate which law has been violated to overrule the approval for the music festival which has been held for many years previously.

“The cancellation of the festival is a violation of freedom enshrined in the federal constitution in our multi-racial society,” he said in a statement on Saturday (Oct 6).

The Island Music Festival, a three-day, two-night event, has taken place every year at Long Beach, Pulau Redang (island) since 2013.

The state government had cancelled a music festival scheduled to take place on Redang next weekend, but left the door open to organisers to appeal the decision, provided they agree to abide by local guidelines.

This comes after netizens in a Facebook group were riled up by a 30-second promotional video of the event – which featured bikini-clad girls on the beach, a club scene, and participants enjoying other activities such as Yoga, snorkelling and beach volleyball – and called for the event to be cancelled.

Toh said the reasons given by the state government were based on personal subjective interpretations of moral values and doctrines.

He also wanted them to state clearly the details of the entertainment guidelines and explain which activities do not comply with the guidelines.

“Only then can the organisers make necessary changes to meet the requirements.

“We hope that the PAS-helmed Terengganu state government can provide such details with its order to cancel the festival,” said Toh.

He added that if the PAS state government decided to cancel the festival based on the majority (Muslim) demography of the state population, then this decision was unreasonable, undemocratic and unfair to the minorities….
