Inul's concert cancelled
What's wrong with this picture? With one day before the concert, a few agencies agreed to cancel the concert after granting permission (another flip flop). This shows such immaturity. What should be the basis of the cancellation? Perhaps it's the controversial way of Inul's dance move.
1. Why approve it in the first place? 2. If we are against the 'obscene' and 'controversial' dancing style, why don't we ban MTV and Channel V (as if people can't youtube)? As if the dancers at our local clubs are not controversial. 3. Isn't that a big loss of revenue for the city (from taxes), hawkers, restaurant operators with an estimated of 8,000 ? 4. If we're willing to go that extra mile, how about the sales of alcohol to minors & Muslims at the pubs in JB and other vice activities in the city? If we want to clean our act up, we can't be partial and hypocritical.
