Coldplay Malaysia Controversy
Chris Martin, who is the lead vocalist of the band, was seen on a Facebook post where he was holding a rainbow flag which is used to show their support for the lesbian, gay, transgender, and bisexual community when he was performing at a concert in Wembley Stadium which is situated in London.
Mr. Nasrudin, who was responsible for the cancellation, asked the government whether they want to create a culture of perversion and hedonism in their country by bringing those people who support this type of community and additionally, their concert will not bring any benefit to the religion and race of the country.
Mr. Nga has informed the local media that they are going to welcome this British man into their country by the end of this year, and if the PAS don’t like Coldplay or they don’t follow their ideologist, then they should not buy the concert tickets but banning them from performing in the country is a completely useless thing, and the Coldplay fans should not be stopped from attending their concert he also quoted saying Free Malaysia Today when he attended the event in Putrajaya.
Shakir Ameer, who is the Shah Alam DAP chairman, also commented on Mr. Nasrudin’s statement that they are trying to create an illogical protest to create some cheap publicity stunt. Selangor’s state capital is Shah Alam.
He says that if he focuses on the PAS logic, then it means that the radio, television or internet, or any other different type of social media, especially the tik tok on which they heavenly depend for their entertainment, should also be banned because they also promote such type of things and if the parties do not agree with that they should be in them also he wrote the all these in a Facebook post.
He also said that this concert would be an economic boost for their country. According to him, if a concert is organized by some international artist like Coldplay, who has such a huge fan base will be a historic music event.
The local vendors are the traders who will create a living from them by creating their shops near the event venue and also, the country can expect an increase in the number of tourists from different parts of the world, especially from the southern parts of Asia because Malaysia is only the second venue in the Asia where Coldplay will perform their concert the second venue is Jakarta Indonesia.
Minister of Communications and Digital Fahmi Fadzil has retweeted articles about Coldplay-related projects, such as a song played in support of Palestine and a river cleanup campaign in Malaysia.
At the end, as part of their Music Of The Spheres World Tour, Coldplay will perform at its first-ever Malaysian performance on November 22 at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.
