Music banned

Where’s the outcry from the moderates? Do they even exist in significant numbers?

It really irks me when the thugs take over using Islam as a guise. I hope that’s the case, anyway…

Mogadishu-based radio stations stopped playing all music on Tuesday following an ultimatum by hardline Islamist militia in a sign of the insurgents’ tightening grip on the Somali capital.

The city’s 14 radio stations turned off the Western, Arabic and modern Somali and other African music that fills up their 18-hour broadcast time after an ultimatum by the Hezb al-Islam group expired.

Hezb al-Islam, which controls patches of the war-wracked capital, had given the popular stations 10 days to shut down “evil” music broadcasts.
