"Someone who listens to music is guilty of adultery"

Young singer Lima Sahar has become an ikon in struggle for freedom of music. She beat out 2,000 other hopefuls who auditioned for the third season of 'Afghan Star', wearing a headscarf and glitter in her hair, while she sang Pashtun oldies, though without any dance moves.
This singing has put the mullahs pajama pants in knots.

Sayed-ur-Rahman Niazi, the cleric at Kabul's central mosque which attracts 50,000 worshipers during weekly Friday prayers said "It's completely rejected by Islam. Someone who goes to listen to music is guilty of adultery. It's the same thing. And someone who enjoys it should be kicked out of Islam. He's no longer a Muslim."
Here in Maldives the local Taliban, trained in the madharusas of Medina, Cairo, Karachi and Kuala Lampur are also trying to ban music.

At the event organised by Dhivehi Taliban video presentation showed the scholars – including officials from the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, Human Rights Commission, and political parties – each saying in turn that they believe music is haraam. And we all know what happens when we do haraam things - we will not get those hooralleen in Jannah!

Burning of ‘evil’ music (tapes, records, videos and CDs)

Imagine the world without music. Or imagine a world where we are told what to play, what to sing and even what we may listen to in the privacy of our own homes.

That world is closer that we think, if music loving people sit back and watch these mullahs continue their brainwashing and agitation.

    so how come women dont pregnant get after listening to music? oh yes, evil jinns suck up those babies while the mother is asleep eh? is that how Mariyam got pregnant? Gabriel blew a trumpet-load of music up her twat i suppose. Oh and this also means that someone who listens to Rihanna should be buried to his waist and stoned alive eh? Not that a Hell-destined heathen pig like me would know. I am just saying.

    I thought i will check the hype regarding these new sermons being given by mullahs.

    I was in to a shock. What i heard was fragmented cleverly to brainwash.Clearly Maldives is doomed if freedom loving people don't engage with reasoning with these mullahs on a same platform so that public can garner the rubbish these mullahs are muttering.

    questions for munajid at

    if america were run by you, then eliot spitzer would have had to resign after going to the opera right?

    if guitar notes equal to adultery then do tambourine beats equal to foreplay? and whats the equivalent to jerking off?

    does this mean that buying a music CD is as sinful as paying a prostitute?

    what if i accidentally hear some music, like say my colleague's cell phone starts ringing with some Bollywood tune. is there something like accidental adultery?

    i'll leave you to your dusty fiqh books and theological somersaulting. meanwhile i am gonna get some pussy! (i wish... so i'll do the next best thing. listen to Celine Dion squawk and scream. just like a woman in heat)
