No Muslims at Guinness 250th Birthday Black Eyed Peas Concert


Black Eyed Peas

Guinness is hosting some pretty epic parties to celebrate it’s 250th birthday, but things have turned awkward in Malaysia, where Muslims have been barred from attending one such celebration featuring the Black Eyed Peas.

According to Reuters, No Muslims at Malaysia Black Eyed Peas concert:

The move comes after a Malaysian Islamic court sentenced a 32-year Muslim woman to be caned after she was caught drinking beer in a hotel and at a time when an opposition Islamic party has moved against beer sales.

The concert, part of celebrations of Guinness 250th birthday, asks on its website http://www.arthursday.com.my “Are you a non-Muslim aged 18 years and above?” and if the response is no, access is not allowed.

Muslims account for 55 percent of the 27 million people in this Southeast Asian country and are barred from consuming alcohol although the rules are regularly flouted, especially in big cities like the capital, Kuala Lumpur.

Really? REALLY? Come on people. This just blows my mind…

    Checked out the Malaysian site, and it asked me for my IC number (I guess it’s the equivalent to an SSN) or my passport number.

    Veeeeery “papers please”. Creepy.

    On the other hand, I guess this is a chance to see The Black Eyed Peas up close since half the country is banned from attending.
