Perry upsets Muslims

Singer Katy Perry has upset Muslims by using ‘blasphemous’ imagery in the music video of her new hit Dark Horse. In the promo, she is seen as an Egyptian queen who has the power to zap her subjects with lightning and turn them into sand, and she offends Muslims by killing a man wearing a pendant reading god (Allah) in Arabic. The jewellery item is also zapped.  Members of the Muslim community have criticised the video, calling it blasphemous. They demand its removal from video-sharing site YouTube, reports contactmusic.com.

One of those offended by the imagery has launched a petition on Change.org, which reads: “This petition is lodged In (sic) regards to Katy Perry’s music video Dark Horse… The video is considered as highly controversial to its viewers as a result of its portrayal of blasphemy.

“At 01:15 (minutes) into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word Allah, which is the arabic (sic) word for god. Such goes to show, that blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, since Katy Perry (who appears to be representing an opposition of god) engulfs the believer and the word God in flames.

“This is the reason for lodging the petition so that people from different walks of life, different religions and from different parts of the world, agree that the video promotes blasphemy (sic). Using the name of God in an irrelevant and distasteful manner would be considered inappropriate by any religion.”

Katy Perry has landed in a controversy following this. Here watch the Dark Horse video!

    Um, that isn’t Arabic script. Not even Kufic. You obviously can’t read Arabic, and know nothing about Arabic calligraphy, but I assure you, it doesn’t say anything; it’s just an abstract geometric design… This is a red herring, simply because they don’t like everything else that is portrayed, and want the video removed for those reasons. Some might buy into it, in much the same way as when people see a portrayal of an eye, they think “Illuminati confirmed!”. It’s a logical fallacy, called confirmation bias.

    They’re trying to manufacture a controversy that isn’t even there. This is absolutely pathetic. Shame on you for helping stir the pot. Or rather, the crackpot.

    Two experts on Arabic calligraphy were asked to examine this (outside the context of the video), and practically laughed themselves onto the floor because they said it doesn’t even resemble any Arabic script they’ve seen. Really, before you report these things, you should do your homework.
