Recommended Posts

People got so arrogant and disrespectful against religions in modern times, especially to Islam. Have you heard of this stupid joke yet on a Norway TV show? I wish i had never heard of it.

salam alaykum brother,

 

it's really nice to see an old forum member  :D how are you? i remember your profile pic hehe  :happy:

 

i'm copying the text here:

 

 

Teenagers had to put on hijab and recite Islamic creed in Arabic to win tickets to a Justin Bieber concert.

 

Tuesday night the Norwegian TV channel TVNorge (TV Norway) broadcasted an episode of the humor show «Anne-Kat», where girls in Oslo got to participate in a contest to win tickets to a Justin Bieber concert.

(Watch the video with english sub titles at the bottom of this page)

The catch? They had to «convert» to Islam.

The girls had to remove all make-up, put on a hijab and read something which allegedly was an Islamic creed, in Arabic. They also had to read out loud an Arabic text about «Justin Bieber being unclean and probably gay».

«We wanted to find out how far Norwegian beliebers are willing to go for tickets to one of the concerts», tv-show host Anne-Kat Hærland said while introducing the episode.

Bishop Halvor Nordhaug, from the Norwegian Lutheran Church, thinks the episode testifies to Hærlands’s lack of understanding of how much faith means for a lot of people.

«This is an example of an idea where irony and lack of respect turns into something tragic.»

Nordhaug is critical of the episode, which he believes creates an impression that Justin Bieber is more important than faith, and that people are willing to change religion for a concert ticket.

«I believe this [the contest] is a foolish statement and it shows a lack of respect for what faith means,« he says.

«It is really pathetic»

Spokesperson Jens Brun-Pedersen in Human-etisk Forbund (The Humanist Association in Norway) disagrees with the bishop. He believes humor should provoke and that comedians should have respect for as little as possible. 

«Generally, I want to say that humor ought to challenge not only Islam, but also Christianity, Humanism, politics and economy. In my perspective, it is one of the comedian’s tasks to challenge people in power. We may also discuss whether or not something is tasteless, but I don’t want to get into that as I have not seen this particular episode.»

 Brun-Pedersen also says it sounds like this TV show has pointed out the Bieber-fever.

«One might see this just as much as an irony about the crazyness surrounding «Jostein Beaver», as I like to call him.»

TV Norge’s head of communication, Svein Tore Bergestuen underscores that he has not been involved with the production of the episode in question.

«Anne-Kat. and her crew have the freedom to create a funny TV show. It is not up to us to question their judgement about what is funny and what is not.»

Bergestuen thinks that if a TV show ought to be funny these days, the comedians must be allowed much liberty.

«But that liberty comes with a responsibility. However, in light of this particular episode there is much left before they have crossed any boundaries.»

The newspaper Dagen has also been in touch with Mehtab Afsar, General Secretay of the Norwegian Islamic Council, but have not been able to get his comments.

Assalamu 3aleykum!

What should I say? Dagen is a Christian newspaper and I'm not happy with how Islam is portrayed in Norwegian media in general. Also, if the Norwegian Islamic Council actually were keen to do something, they would and should have commented on this event.

I feel so embarrassed whenever I read something about Norway and Islam because I know from the bottom of my heart that the general Norwegian mentality and the general impression of Islam amongst Norwegians has NOT changed since the 22 July terror attack. Yes, it's the biggest thing that has happened in Norway since the Norwegian constitution was signed on 17 May 1814. -Most people tend to focus on the fact that it's a national tragedy, rather than why it happened and what the intentions behind it were...

Also: It really hurts to see something like this, especially as a Norwegian myself. I also believe things like this video clip will just increase the number of stereotypes that exist in the Norwegian society today.

Wasn't that double tragedy made by a right-wing non-Muslim extremist? what had that got to do with Islam.

Do you mean because of the media which jumped to accuse Muslims without waiting for the investigations?

He did that as an action of hatred towards Islam.

Theres no point at raging at the media, its now at its lowest ebb for muslim and all people.

 

We live in an age where mediocrity is celebrated and everyone wants 15 minutes of fame.

 

The reason why so much hate towards muslim. Terrorism. Right now in the uk or usa, a muslim is planning a terror attack, not a jew, or a buddha, or a christian, or a sikh, or a neo-nazi, just a muslim.
