Katy Perry's Dark Horse Video Angers Muslims.

Model With Islamic Chain.
A Muslim man has launched a petition asking YouTube to remove Katy Perry's new video from their site because it shows her disintegrating a man wearing a pendant which reads 'Allah'. In the Dark Horse video Perry plays a princess in ancient Egypt trying to chose a male suitor. One by one the suitors arrive with gifts which displease the princess, and the men are turned into sand by lightning Perry shoots from her fingers. By modern standards Perry's new offering could have been considered tame, but has sparked controversy after Shazad Iqbal noticed the first suitor wearing a necklace which reads 'Allah.

The Muslim man, from Bradford, England, has now started a petition calling for YouTube to take the video down, alleging it 'promotes blasphemy'. The online form has attracted nearly 40,000 signatures from countries across the world, including Australia, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Bangladesh. In the complaint, Mr Iqbal said: 'The video is considered as highly controversial to its viewers as a result of its portrayal of blasphemy. Blasphemy is clearly conveyed in the video, since Katy Perry (who appears to be representing an opposition of God) engulfs the believer and the word God in flames. 'This is the reason for lodging the petition so that people from different walks of life, different religions and from different parts of the world, agree that the video promotes blasphemy.
