Dept. Of Islamic Development Objects To Malaysian Lamb Of God Show

Lamb Of God (2013) The Department of Islamic Development of Malaysia (Jakim) has raised objection to the upcoming Lamb Of God show in Kuala Lumpur on September 28.

Malaysian newspaper The Star states that its director-general, Datuk Othman Mustapha, said Jakim raised the objection on Friday because the genre of music that the group had performed was a mix of metal songs with the reading of verses from the Quran.

Othman said the objection was in accordance with the decision of the Fatwa (Edicts) Committee that the practices and acts of black metal groups were misguided and contrary to the true teachings of Islam.

As such, Jakim feared that the performance in the country of heavy metal groups would revive the black metal trend, he said.

Othman said it was hoped that the authorities would not approve the performance of the Lamb of God by taking into consideration the sensitivities of Muslims and to ensure that it did not open up crises related to faith and morality.
