PETALING JAYA: The Coldplay concert on Nov 22 should be called off, says Federal Territories mufti Datuk Dr Luqman Abdullah.

Dr Luqman called on the public not to support the concert, adding that it would not benefit the society.

"The band is also linked to immoral groups promoting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) practices.

"We advise organisers not to proceed and for the public not to support the programme which is clearly against the values of this country.

"For the Muslim community, there are boundaries that must be adhered to and forms of entertainment outside this are against Islamic law," Dr Luqman said in a statement on Saturday (November 18).

He added that the Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) had issued entertainment guidelines and that Muslims could refer to them.

Earlier this week, PAS and Majlis Ulama Ikatan Muslimin (Isma) religious council chairman Datuk Zamri Hashim also called for the Coldplay concert to be cancelled.

Coldplay is scheduled to perform in Kuala Lumpur on Nov 22 as part of their Music of the Spheres World Tour.
