Malaysian Muslim royalty slams Islamic party for opposing music concert | The Jakarta Post
The royal titular head of a Malaysian state has criticized an Islamic opposition party for opposing a planned music concert, dismissing the protest as "hypocritical" and "trivial" in a rare outburst, a news report said Wednesday.
The Selangor state sultan's criticism was directed at the youth wing of the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, which has threatened to protest against a show by two famous Malaysian singers. The youth leaders say the women's attire and dance moves are too sexy and unacceptable in this Muslim-majority country.
Rock singer Norzila Aminuddin, better known as Ella, and pop singer Mas Idayu are to perform ahead of a soccer match on July 6 between Selangor and Singapore, to be played in the Selangor state capital Shah Alam.
