KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Organizers of pop concerts and some other big events are increasingly wary of including Malaysia on their itineraries, as the cancellation of a beer festival due to take place next month highlighted growing intolerance toward activities regarded as insulting to Islam by some Muslim groups.

The promoters say that international music stars, especially those known for risqué lyrics or revealing clothing, are unlikely to be brought to Malaysia as part of regional or global tours. The same goes for any gatherings that could in any way be deemed un-Islamic.
United Nations Special Rapporteur Karima Bennoune in her report last week expressed deep concern at the level of involvement of religious authorities in policy decisions.

She said some Malaysians have expressed concern about a growing Islamisation, which represented a “significant break with the past”.

They say that,


The impact of religious fundamentalism isn’t just about Malaysia’s image to the outside world. It also gnaws away at the country’s multicultural and pluralistic fabric.

About 40 percent of Malaysia’s population is non-Muslim, including Christians, Buddhists and Hindus.



Is this the beginning of an Islamacized take over. Where does it end? And just how much more 'Tolerant' will the Civilized World be before this becomes the norm?

Good timing..

The Malaysian F1 race is on this weekend.....actually right now is practice.

There will be lots of alcohol consumption, wild sex and debauchery by all those White fellas from Aust and Europe happening........

Not to mention all the million of $$ brought into the country.

I wonder if the Muslim Native ban on Concerts is only for the Natives who attend?

I understand Malaysia is made up of quite a few different ethnic peoples, like Singapore.

Radical Islam is like a cancer, without a cure there is no stopping it.

Im not sure that's altogether the right approach to a concerning problem. Concerning to the non Muslim population. Their rights and freedoms are being stolen from under them.


Prime Minister Najib has projected a global image of a moderate Muslim leader and has widely promoted himself as a key player in the fight against Islamic extremism.In a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump last month, Najib said Malaysia is a partner in America’s fight against the Islamic State, and it will be a key player in promoting moderate Islam.

He has been largely silent during a series of recent religion-related incidents in Malaysia.

He did, though, comment this week after the owner of a laundromat in southern Malaysia apologized for barring non-Muslim users, a ban that had gone viral on social media and triggered condemnations by community leaders, including the Sultan of Johor.

How is informing the world a bunch of bully jihad cultists gone rank, bashing?

What about the people forced to live with it? What about their rights and freedoms? Or should the bully pushing jihads get their way because they're the ones yelling the loudest?

I understand that. But their back yards spill over onto ours, and that affects us too.

It's easy to tun a blind eye for so long, but not forever.

Time and events in history have this uncanny way of catching up to you. If we refuse to learn from the past, we never will.

As for what to do about it? Lots, however I don't have a seat on the UN. And little to no influence by myself. Im just the spark. It would take a lot more to create a bang. So until then, I wait.

Malaysia has a muslim majority, 61.3% (2010) islam, 19.8% Buddhism and the rest Christian and traditional Chinese religions.

If the news (if you can call it that) in the op bothers YOU so much why don't you go to Malaysia and tell them what you think.

Sorry, I'm not really trying to be a dick but everyone knows that radical islam is a problem..one thing for sure..meddling in other countries is seldom rewarding.
The U.N. is a waste of time unfortunately.

In general, radical anything is a problem. Anywhere.
