Unspun was in the gym working out this morning when one of the Indonesian TV station gossip shows
came on. It showed a distraught and tearful Inul shocked by the ban on her performance.
Unspun cringed when the other people working out there began commenting about Inul’s mistreatment. “Di ban i Johor?” asked a Bapak. “Oh mereka fanatik di sana ya?”
Good one Bolehlanders. Who the hell do Malaysia’s PAS and other self proclaimed champions of the Muslim faith think they are, trying to say what’s approved and appreciated by a very large portion of Indonesia, home to the world’s largest Muslim population?
Dangdut singer Inul concert rejected by Islamic party in KL

The Kuala Lumpur Youth Council of the Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) on Tuesday rejected the upcoming concert of Indonesian dangdut singer Inul Daratista to be held at the Bukit Djalil stadium, Kuala Lumpur.
The refusal from the party’s youth council appeared following the local government ban against Inul’s concert in Johor Bahru earlier this month.
“We will file our rejection to the Kuala Lumpur government and the relevant ministry,” said Kamaruzaman, head of the party’s youth council. “Her ‘drilling’ dance is too erotic.”
Inul is expected to perform in the Bukit Djalil stadium on Sunday. The organizing committee said the concert had been approved by the local government.
The 25,000 tickets to Inul’s upcoming concert have reportedly sold out
