    Music, bras banned in Somalia

    SOMALI radio stations have stopped broadcasting music following an order from Islamist insurgents who say songs are un-Islamic.

    Somalia has a tradition of music and most residents greeted the ban with dismay.

    The edict is the latest unpopular order from Islamists, who have also banned bras, musical ringtones and movies.

    Abdulahi Yasin Jama at Tusmo broadcasting says stations had no choice but to comply with the order, which came into force today. Only one government-controlled station is defying the ban.

    The Islamists frequently assassinate those who defy them or carry out Shariah-based punishments like amputating limbs.

    The ban on music echoes rules enforced by Afghanistan's hardline Taliban regime in the late 1990s.

    Extremist pillocks.
    They seem to forget even the call to prayer is a form of song.

    I believe this comes from a mention in Al Qur'an that forbids fruitless activity. That sort of assumes music is useless and it's not.

    Why are bras even an issue if the women have to cover themselves in black tents? Let them use duct tape.

    No but they follow the same extremist ideals that very few actually want to follow or believe they are even close to right about.
    Problem is they have the guns so it's hard to strike up debate because they kill anyone who wants to discuss the subject.
    I hope they die soon.
    Be happy dudes. It's a lot more fun than crying.

    Bugger me, you never read that bit did you Mr Fred?

    Are people that thick they need some twit croaking out rubbish he doesn't understand over a 1952 soundsystem to get them to pray? I'd have thought that if they wanted to go of their own free will, they would have done, but we know it ain't like that, don't we? Some poor twat in the village will get bullied into going to some religious crap, whether he wants top go or not.

    I've got a bloke who works for me who is forced to lose a day a week for "mengaji", the irony is the poor git can't write his own name, yet alone read the Quran in arabic or even Indonesian.

    What a miserable existence they would have us lead.
    and I agree with the above, surely it should be up to the individual to choose to interpret and obey the religious edicts as the individual sees fit and deal with the consequences in the afterlife. These things are between the individual and his god.
    Not for humans to enforce on one another.
