LAMB OF GOD SHOW BAN IN MALAYSIA

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - The Department of Islamic Development of Malaysia (Jakim) is objecting to the scheduled performance of the United States' heavy metal band, Lamb of God, in Kuala Lumpur on September 28.
Its director-general, Datuk Othman Mustapha, said Jakim raised the objection because the music that the group had performed was a mix of metal songs with the reading of verses from the Quran.
The band had sparked controversy among the Christian community itself as a group that incorporates evil and anti-divine spiritual elements in its performance, he said in a statement.


Othman said the objection was in accordance with the decision of the Fatwa 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.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, also demanded the concert be banned, claiming that Lamb of God could cause "untold harm and moral decadence" among young people.
The Lamb of God band was previously known as Burn the Priest.
