PETALING JAYA: As if the putrid stench of stagnant religious sensitivity doesn’t permeate the air already, sex blogger and refugee Alvin Tan has released his very own rendition of the azan (Muslim call of prayer).
The video was posted on his Facebook profile under Alvin Tan Yolo, along with other damaging comments such asÂ â€œâ€¦I ainâ€™t a suicide bomber aightâ€ to â€œMy latest goal is to get all mosques in Malaysia to play my cover instead of having them old geezers hunched over the micsâ€¦cracking their voices. Let them geezers rest alreadyâ€¦ preferably in eternal peace.â€
The video, which is 2 minutes and 49 seconds in duration, exhibits Alvin topless whilst playing the keyboard and reciting the azan in a quote-unquote “R&B” version– a very damaging and highly disrespectful mimicking of the azan caller made at the wrong time.
As of date, the video has garnered over 40,000 views and was shared 1,600 times since its “grand debut” at 6 a.m. this morning.
Perhaps eager to revive his abating 15 minutes of fame, we cringed as Alvin attempts to throw cheap shots to the Muslim community.
â€œAnd please donâ€™t badger me about the wrong lyricsâ€¦ First, this is a cover, so creative modification is permitted.â€
The azan is the call of prayer which was made by the muezzin five times a day, as a reminder for all Muslims to perform their religious duties to God.
Unfortunately, the video was released amidst the recent church protest in Taman Medan,Cheras had the Christians and Muslims divided, but soon came to a peaceful understanding as both practitioners of the monotheistic religions come hand in hand in defending each others’ rights.
Unsung hero or a cowardly fool, Alvin has definitely left an unsavoury taste in the mouth to an otherwise concious and diplomatic debate.-MYNEWSHUB.CC
