Lady Gaga’s upcoming show in Indonesia is due to become the latest attract protests. The opening show of the singer’s latest world tour in Seoul, South Korea went ahead while a demonstration took place outside, and now campaigners are calling on her to cancel her planned performance in the Indonesian capital Jakarta next month.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, a spokesman for the Islamic Defenders’ Front said: “Lady Gaga insults all religions. Even Christians in Korea opposed her. She is promoting the worship of Satan”.
The chairman of the group’s Jakarta branch Salim Alatas also told AFP: “We will stop her from setting foot on our land. She had better not dare spread her satanic faith in this country. Her style is vulgar, her sexual and indecent clothes will destroy our children’s sense of morality. She’s very dangerous”.
The group claims that it has rallied 30,000 people to demonstrate outside the concert, though they will still be outnumbered by its 40,000 ticketholders.
