|Lady Gaga has cancelled her Jakarta concert|
following fundamentalist threats
“The concert is intended to destroy the nation’s morality. She is from the West, and she often shows her aurat [private parts of the body] when performing."The gig was due to take place on 3 June, but Gaga was this weekend forced to cancel following threats from the fundamentalist Islamic Defenders Front, which claimed it had supporters with tickets to the event who would take action to stop it once inside.
Following news of the cancellation, the Islamic Defenders Front expressed its delight that the singer had withdrawn from the 50,000 capacity concert:
"This is a victory for Indonesian Muslims. Thanks to God for protecting us from a kind of devil."
