The Muslim youth group’s statement comes after the Malay right-wing group Perkasa’s call last week for Muslims nationwide to boycott award-winning singer Jaclyn Victor for singing the Malay-language Christian song “Harapan Bangsa”, which she has said is meant for Christians. KUALA LUMPUR: An influential Muslim youth group said today that Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s "My Name Is Khan" movie confuses Muslims as it promotes liberal Islam and religious pluralism, and warned Malaysian broadcasters not to air the hit film.
"Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia (ABIM) strongly protests the screening of ‘My Name Is Khan’ on TV3 on the second Hari Raya Aidil Adha.
"Films that carry confusing messages clearly shouldn’t (tidak wajar) be screened by a main Malaysian television station," the group’s vice-president Ahmad Saparudin Yusup said in a statement today.
