KUALA LUMPUR: An Islamist groups alleges that Korean pop artists are secretly spreading Christianity in Malaysia.
According to details, a Malaysian Islamist group Ikatan Muslimin Malaysia (ISMA) had aired claims on July 27 that Malaysia’s Democratic Action Party (DAP) has teamed up with Korean pop boy band BigBang who are using their concerts as a means to spread Christianity. BigBang held a two-day concert in Kuala Lumpur over the weekend.
Chairman of Islamist group ISMA’s missionary bureau says, “DAP which is close to the evangelists would surely support the concerts, just like how they previously supported a beer festival, even when the practice is detrimental to the public and was rejected by the majority of Malaysians.”
“However,” he added, “they protest against good things such as making couple seats in cinema only for married couples, to prevent immodest acts. DAP’s action only shows how afraid it is of Islam becoming stronger in Malaysia.”
The Islamist group earlier opposed the super-popular Korean pop boy band BigBang ahead of its concert in Malaysia last weekend, however, despite their strong opposition the contest successfully went off. ISMA accuse that most K-Pop artistes are secretly “church activists” who are directly involved in evangelising Christianity abroad.
According to the Islamist group’s chairman of missionary bureau, concerts of the Korean band “bring joy” but are actually “anti-Islam” and would spoil the Muslim community in Malaysia.
He also claimed that the K pop artists recite text from the Bible during their concerts; moreover the pop artists invite their fans to attend church. Nonetheless, no proof was provided to back these allegations.
