Thai Muslims Offended by Rap Song

02/07/2006 12:13 PM, AP

A music distributor recalled two Thai rap CDs from stores Tuesday after Muslims complained the tracks insult their faith.

An article on the Thai-language Muslim Web site http://www.muslimthai.com said a song recorded on CDs in 1998 and 2005 "clearly insults the Quran," the Muslim holy book.

It said the CDs contain verses from the Quran and "the Quran strictly forbids the use of its verses in songs."

The Council of Muslim Organizations of Thailand said rapper Joey Boy and songwriter Kamol Sukosol Clapp, also known as Suki, should not have used the Quranic verses.

The song, "Maya," was released in 1998 on a Joey Boy CD called "Bangkok Boy" and appeared again on the 2005 compilation "The Conclusive Collection."

Sony BMG Music Entertainment Thailand has recalled both CDs, and they will probably be destroyed, said Saharat Vanchompoo, the Sony marketing director.

Joey Boy and Clapp apologized at a news conference to "all Muslims" for producing the song.

"I did not intend to insult the Quran in any way," said Joey Boy, whose real name is Abhisit Opasiemlikit. "If I knew that there was an insulting sound or element in my song, Suki and I would not have created it."

The rapper, the songwriter, and Sony BMG's Saharat said they have requested a meeting as soon as possible with Thailand's top Muslim leader to formally apologize.

In Europe, drawings of the Prophet Muhammad published in a Danish paper have sparked violent protests in the Muslim world.

Un----ing believable. These pussies whine about anything and get their way!

Yeah. If Muslims complained about something about me, I'd definitely give them what the hell they want. I don't want some psycho blowing himself up on my doorstep - do you? The Quran must prevent social development beyond the age of 4.

They're into the whole gangsta culture over there. Drive-by shootings, mistreatment of women, abuse of power, murder for murder's sake. It makes sense that they're into rap, too.

You know, this is getting really interesting to me.

I've heard a lot about how the West has to "win the hearts and minds of the arab street" and "win the war of ideas" over the course of the last few years.

In fact, they are winning our hearts and minds. And, they are winning the war of ideas. Most people are scared to death of offending a muslim.

We must convert these bastards to Scientology as quickly as possible. It's our only chance.

Funny thing is you could just as easily have found countless fanatical Christian or other religious wackos in this country are offended by rap songs or anything else that goes against their dogmatic, miserable lifestyle.
