Indonesian Singer Inul Daratista's Concert Today Cancelled By DBKL For National Security Reasons!

Indonesian singer Inul Daratista's concert at Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil, on Saturday has been cancelled after Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) cancelled the permit.

Inul who is famous for her gelek gerudi (killer gyration) hip movements performed in the country last year as well as in 2005.

According to news reports, Nasir Abu Bakar of IMS Prima Sdn Bhd (the concert organiser) said that he was disappointed with the decision because the Central Committee for Filming and Performance by Foreign Artiste had given the green light for the event. "We received the directive from DBKL to cancel the concert due to national security. If that is the reason, there is nothing else I can say," he told the media.

Inul's concert in Johor Baru was also cancelled at the very last minute after it could not get approval from various government departments in the state.

Nasir said his company had incurred RM800,000 in losses following the cancellation of the concerts in Johor and Kuala Lumpur.

He said those who had purchased tickets to the concert could ask for refunds from the company's office at 63A, Jalan Raja Alang, Kampung Baru, Kuala Lumpur, or call 03-2693 6818.

Two years ago, Inul's concert at Stadium Merdeka and Genting Highlands received overwhelming support without any untoward incidents.

On Friday, National PAS Youth chief Salahuddin Ayub backed his Federal Territory Youth chief Kamaruzaman Mohamad’s protest against Inul's concert. A group led by Kamaruzaman handed a memorandum to Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Abdul Hakim Borhan on Wednesday calling for Inul’s concert to be cancelled.

The memorandum cited many reasons including that the concert was “erotic”. (The Star Online)

***** What imminent 'national security threat' could have influenced DBKL in cancelling the performance, is mystifying to say the least.

Can a couple of dozen PAS mullahs venting their rage at the singer's 'erotic' gyrations be considered a national security issue? Or perhaps the current 'brotherly' discussions of political cooperation between PAS and beleaguered Umno have contributed to the scuttling of the programme? Perhaps Umno wants to appear equally halal, what with the ongoing tête-à-tête with the Islamic party.

Yes it is true the concert was cancelled due to national security reasons. DBKL could not get any police to look after the security because all the police are busy looking for Bala, protecting DPM, interrogating Anwar and watching over the erection of barriers and of course going after RPK. DBKL must be full of dickheads !!!!
Fcuk police

Yeah, national security my ass... but don't forget, DBKL was paid a "friendly" visit by a delegation from PAS Youth earlier this week. Who knows what sort of veiled threats were issued... Veiled, since they are so gung-ho on wanting to cover up everyone and everything...

Not that I'm a dangdut fan or anything - certainly no fan of Inul, per se - but this goes far beyond musical taste.

To me "moral decay" is a result of, among other things, the total loss of respect for oneself and others. PAS Youth have certainly made a good example by disrepectfully trampling all over the rights of everybody else wanting to have a good time.

But this, I'm afraid, may just be the beginning of graver things to come...
