PAS Would Protest Outside Adam Lambert's Concert
The furore over Adam Lambert's upcoming concert in Malaysia is continuing to escalate as Muslim campaigners plan protests outside the venue in Kuala Lumpur. The gay star is due to perform in the capital city on Thursday, October 14, but he has come under fire from members of the Pan Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), who fear the singer will be promoting gay culture in the mainly Muslim country, where homosexual relations are illegal.
Lambert has insisted he will tone down his act in accordance with the country's strict decency laws and the government has granted him a permit to perform. But campaigners are refusing to back down and are planning to demonstrate outside the stadium where Lambert is due to play.
PAS youth chief Nasrudin Hassan says, "Lambert is morally unfit. His gay lifestyle will harm our society. He is of bad, bad character and poses a danger to young Malaysians. We want the government to cancel the permit..." But Hassan is adamant all the planned protests will be peaceful.
He adds, "We will use a soft approach to protest against his performance. He has admitted he is gay. We feel his lifestyle will influence and destroy the young generation. We will not use violence to stop the concert."
