Religious association stops music show

A religious association on Thaa atoll Dhiyamigilli stopped a music show that was being held as part of the Eid celebrations, Miadhu reports.

“The association said that men and women participating in a music show were forbidden by religion and so it cannot be held on that island,” a source told Miadhu.

“A confrontation did occur, although it was not a major one,” the source added.

Well-known local artists such as Abdul Baaree and Sobah were scheduled to appear in the show accompanied by both male and female dancers.

The source told Miadhu while some islanders supported the association others wanted to music show to continue.
