Malaysia bans singer Erykah Badu for Allah tattoo - Telegraph
Should we kill her?The Grammy-winning R&B singer was scheduled to perform Wednesday in Kuala Lumpur, but some Muslim groups said Badu was an unsuitable role model for young Malaysians after seeing a publicity photo of her with what appeared to be temporary tattoos of the word Allah on her bare shoulders.
A government committee that includes police and Islamic policy officials decided to forbid Badu's show because the body art was "an insult to Islam and a very serious offence," Rais Yatim, the information minister, said in a statement.
Or what about simple logic you missed?
Take it as just an example-
What will be your natural reaction if i try to provoke you by publishing derogatory pics of some one dear to you?- say your daughter?-
in the end it is about some one who is dear to you-
for some its their family for some its their religious figures-
the culprit and punishable by law should always be the provoker- not the provocateur-
BTW where they asked for her death?
dude don't jump from one point to others
you find it good act to insult and make fun of someone beliefs and prophets? If not then it should not be allowed..if you find it ok then you should be ready for any reactions that your actions might bring and again you cannot earn respect of a person by insulting the most beloved personality of that person.
Is that right?
If so, then you support going to war against 'the West' because it is NOW our belief is that -- absent physical assault -- the right to insult trumps the right to respond. No religion, not even Islam, is above criticisms and even insults. It is only the cowardice of the insulters that they target only Christians and Christianity but not muslims and Islam. The few brave enough to take on Islam may ended up like Theo van Gogh -- murdered in public.

Why abuse ISLAM? why target muslims coz of our beliefs? i mean burning the Holy Quran by a fkin looney priest,burnin Quran videos on youtube,calling people racist names,drawing disgusting pictures?making films,writting books,banning muslim clothes, etc... how ethical is that? would a sane person insult somebdy elses religion for no apparent reason?
@Gambit... wish they had wiped entire of ur race in the 70s..
What i just wrote above is tht ethical? how would you feel after reading it? multiply tht feeling with a 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0 zillion... thts not even close to how we feel about our religion.

You do not like it? Nothing personal but -- Tough sh!t, to put it bluntly.
The point is self-control and do not take the bait of others. You don't have to listen to others or read their insults. Yes, it can be frustrating best thing to do is remain rational because violence isn't always the answer. Criticisms and insults are two different things and people should be able to maturely deal with them.
Gambit, tell you what.
Why don't you go to Germany or Austria and simply say
"I think the number Jews killed durring ww2 is different than the official number"
Let me know what happens then
Hypocritical Americans will always be hypocritical, it's in their blood and history.

on the contrary the christians dont take it very seriously
for example they dont eat pork,while christians do, now both are actually forbidden to eat pork, the thing is, there must be constructive criticism and not destructive, the prime examples talking against holocaust in europe will cause law offence
if i insult somebody's mother, his natural reaction will be to hit me, even though he will be arrested afterwards but still,it was i who started the violance, i dunno if i will be prosecuted too in america for cursing his mother
can you see where im getting?
