Foaming-at-the-mouth Muslims demand that Youtube take down the video because they claim she insulted Islam by blaspheming Allah. Apparently, the first guy that Queen Katy melts into sand is wearing a necklace (seen in the pic below) with the name of Allah written in Arabic. So when he melts, the necklace goes too.
ISLAM – the religion of perpetual outrage. MUSLIMS – the gift that keeps on giving!
al-Arabiya An online petition launched on Tuesday by Muslims around the world demands that Katy Perry’s music video for “Dark Horse,” in which a ‘God’ pendant is seen being burned, be removed from Youtube.
At 1:15 into the video, a man is shown wearing two pendants, one of which says God in Arabic. Perry, who plays a queen-like figure in the video, zaps the man with lightening and he disintegrates into sand; his pendant disappearing with him.
Petitioners argue that the pop diva is meant to symbolize the opposition of God, making the video blasphemous.
The video, which has a cartoonish Ancient Egypt theme, features other nonsensical aspects such as cat-human hybrid as body guards with whom Perry pole dances with, a dog which walks on its hind legs, and Perry eating spicy junk food.
The petition, which has garnered 30,000 signatures so far, says that its support will show that, “that people from different walks of life, different religions and from different parts of the world, agree that the video promotes blasphemy, using the name of God in an irrelevant and distasteful manner would be considered inappropriate by any religion.”
Nida Ahmed from Huddersfield, UK signed on the petition that the video shows “great disrespect to Islam yet these lot say we are the bad ones well hah shame on these people (sic).”
Unik Salihu from Sweden said, “I as a Muslim, think this is a disgrace. Does she want to start a war against Muslims? This video is insulting to us and needs to be removed before something happens! (sic).”
