Muslims call for Katy Perry video ban

A still from the video
Katy Perry's video for her latest single 'Dark Horse' has been slammed by Muslims who have called for it to be banned from YouTube, accusing it of being 'blasphemous' - the singer is wearing a necklace with the word ‘Allah’ written in Arabic. More than 50,000 people have signed an online petition filed by Shazad Iqbal of Bradford who describes the video as 'highly controversial to its viewers as a result of its portrayal of blasphemy'. It's all set in 'Memphis, Egypt, a crazy long time ago' and features pole dancing, performing miniature dogs, Egyptian gods - and what looks like a very expensive set!

There is a poll on the ban on the Huffington Post here
