Malaysian Muslims Will No More Dance The Poco-Poco
TO Malaysia, where the National Fatwa Council and the Islamists are making a war dance:
Islamic clerics in Malaysia are firm on their ban on ‘poco-poco’ a popular dance form, claimed of having Christian roots, despite the country’s National Fatwa Council’s decision to allow the dance.
The Perak Fatwa council’s Mufti, Harussani Zakaria, said the state fatwa council was convinced that the dance contained elements of Christianity and spirit worshipp.
“We will not back down on our decision. It is final,” the Star quoted Zakaria, as saying.
Can the poco-poco be so easily silenced? The fox trot, maybe. But not the poco-poco.
