Youtube Removes Word 'Allah' From Katy Perry Video


Youtube edits Katy Perry video to remove the word 'Allah' after backlash from Muslims.
YouTube has quietly edited a Katy Perry music video, after a petition launched on Change.org, urging the online video streaming company to remove the video.
The petition, claiming that Perry literally burns a symbol representing the Muslim God, Allah, reached 50,000 signatures as of Wednesday. YouTube and Perry's representatives did not respond to the controversy.
Shazad Iqbal, 22, creator of the petition, posted on Wednesday that the effort had ended in victory, however YouTube remained quiet throughout, even though the petition was directed at them.
"I'm thrilled to let you all know the name of Allah has been removed from the 'Dark Horse' video we couldn't have done it without everyone's support so I thank each and every one of you deeply, our voices have been heard! God bless you all," Iqbal wrote.
A close look at the "Dark Horse" video on Perry's VEVO YouTube channel will not prove much of anything. Although the post date of the music video has not changed (February 20), a detailed observation will show any viewer that something has changed. The symbol has quietly been removed.
The singer's latest single, "Dark Horse," sparked harsh reactions from the international Muslim community for disrespecting a symbol representing their God, Allah.
The petition launched Tuesday on Change.org is urged supporters of Islam as well as other religions, to ask YouTube to remove the "blasphemous" music video.
Perry portrays an animated representation of Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, and she is seen using her powers to destroy those who oppose her. One character in the video is seen wearing a religious symbol around his neck, who she then zaps into a pile of sand, along with his pendant.
"At 01:15 into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word 'Allah', which is the Arabic word for God," says the online petition.
The petition describes Perry as representing the opposite of Muslim values, and when she is easily able to destroy something representing god, it is a "portrayal of blasphemy."
"Katy Perry engulfs the believer and the word God in flames," it also says. The petition describes the video as "irrelevant and distasteful."
Nida Ahmed of the United Kingdom signed the petition saying, "We are Muslims and that is Allah's name on his neck and she burns it that's great disrespect to Islam."
Also from the UK, Bilal Khan wrote, "Absolutely Disgusted at the music industry for allowing this to happen, music should be about spreading love not hate."
Ayaan Mire of Sweden said, "This video is offensive to the Muslims and I hope YouTube will remove the video."
The video, released on Katy Perry's official VEVO YouTube channel on February 20, has nearly 40 million views.

She has been getting away with disrespecting Christ for so long she thought she was gonna try it with Allah...To bad Christians don't take the same stance for Christ.

I agree. The so-called "Christians" in this country are weak, that's why it's so easy for Hollyweird to disrespect their religion.

It's far too many Muslim extremists to try this kind of disrespect and of course Jews run Hollyweird so nobody will go there.

Kudos to Perry (Sarcasm) in attempting redress the balance of the usual obsessive penchant of the mainstream entertainment to mock Christ/Christianity. See these people ain't slick, she did it real subtle and those Muslims still did not play. They got what they wanted.

Alloah is not the Muslim god, it means " oh he who is" as correctly translated from the Bible

WTF??!!!!!! said...

They need to remove the entire video from the air waves, while they're at it. It's satanic and so is everything this pale face does. I don't know how she became so famous. I guess she cast some spells and the weaklings fell for her shit.
