Censorship Sucks!

| Filed under: Etc.Sad Sad


After an Islamic militia ordered radio stations to stop playing music in Somalia, two stations in the capital of Mogadishu closed out of fear and left others uncertain of their futures!

The government quickly rescinded the order, but the future of the radio stations is unknown because according to a Somali radio director "each side is telling you to do his bidding. We are confused. We don't know what will come next.

Hizbul Islam had labeled music un-Islamic when they issued their edict, but the government is telling the radio stations that they can resume operations.

The Somali government has been unstable for quite some time and some fear that they cannot protect its civilians from the violence running rampant in the country.

    Thats not just censorship per se, is a horrible government that can't or won't protect their people. Sad situation, very sad.

    these people don't have a simple right to listen to music and you title it "censorship sucks"……….you really are an complete and total moron mario……

    I'd like to go over there any make that place one big landing strip. Better yet, build a prison over there to incarcerate our scum in. The inmates would probably be safer staying in prison rather than escaping out into that filth infested degradation.

    Somalia just needs to be bombed or something, as apart from not cooperating with states when ships are stolen/pirated, due to a large inflow of Somali immigrants they are causing great problems to European countries. Somalia has became quiet a pain in the ass to many countries, they either need to get themselves togehter or else they will probably will end up in a war with a country/ies

    I feel strongly that Mario (Perez) should fly to Somali and protest this in person. While he is there, throw in some gay rights action as well. You should take that country by storm. The citizens there would really appreciate someone stepping to the forefront.

    I can't believe people aren't allowed to listen to music. That is such a simple thing that we all take for granted. Music has been a major part of all cultures and religions, to deny it because it is "un-Islamic" is one of the most ludicrous things I've ever heard.

    all religions sucks

    'Hizbul Islam had labeled music un-Islamic'

    That is so much bull. I wish these Islamic countries would stop using religion as a way of oppresing people when it's clearly cultural. NOWHERE in the Quran does it state that you're not allowed to listen to music (or women should wear that ridiculous head gear, should murder women who 'dishonour' their family, that it's ok to blow and murder innocent people in the name of religion etc). Sometimes I think the agnotics/atheists know more about religion than the actual religious people.

    Isn't this the counrty that stoned a 13 year old girl to death beacause she was raped by 3 men….This happened in 2008..So im not surprised at all. Those people are so f*cked up in the head there is no hope……

    the government can do nothing. it's as good as if there was no government. "unstable" is not the word, it's "complete chaos". of course they can't protect their civilians, they don't do it, they can't do it, and all of them are dying. government is completely lost. some of the civilians have no other solution than crime, i'm talking about pirating. mercant and fishing ships from my country, spain, are constantly, constantly being attacked. every time it's a huge uproar, but u know what? many times our countrymen came back saying that they had been well treated. the pirates are not bad people, they're under extreme ciscumstances, they wanna feed their families and protect them from death. they don't really want to hurt anybody. they never kill or hurt, never. a war with Somalia wouldn't be the solution, i don't think there's a solution, really. the militias have too much of a huge influence…

    Somalia is the worst country to live in ATM. Besides North Korea maybe… and some other islamic shitholes.

    This is what happens when disgusting Muslimaniacs are in control. Now, here in the U.S., degenerate Islamatards are going after South Park and it's creators. Just one more reason why Islamoterroists are degenerate filth.

    Somalia= where to start? Is somalia a "friendly nation?" We all know it is not.
    FACTS= Does commit crimes in the sea, ie= take control of ships, murder ETC?
    FACT= Yes we know they do.
    FACT= Are the seamen put up to it with their OWN families on the line for the ciminals GAIN? Yes SOME are! Do the MAJORITY do it of their own free will= YES, they have run away with power, NO ONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD WILL STOP THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Bin laden had a purpose, he did ban books and radio, to stop the men &women educating themsleves, it was to stop them finding out his propaganda!
    Somalia….Who IS BEHIND THE MONEY??????? Look further and you will see
    Who does it NOT suit for the Somalian government to bring in th U.N
    The U.N are not stopping them
    The United States of America are sure as hell not even though they have taken many ships not shown in the U.S
    WILL ANYONE STAND UP????????????????????????????????????????????????

    Boo hoo hoo. I guess there won't be any music to play while these savages are cutting peoples heads off. Yeah, its a religion of peace.

    No one can speak about Islam in general to some of those who commented on this post, it's just Somalia's problem, my country is an Islamic country and plays everything on the radio and so do many other Islamic countries.

  31. Hibo says – reply to this


    how ridiculous since music is the core of what binds all somalis! these islamic radicalists that are trying to take over and have their way like they do in the middle east are going to destroy the country beyond repair. its so sad.

    Re: Eris – How cruel are u? Maybe if ur family got killed prob u will have compassion. You don't understand the circumstances the civilians live in hence why the "Pirates" do hijacking of ships. They have not caused any harm to hostages apart from keeping them captive. Not every country has to follow what the USA say as its none of their business. As we showed USA we can fight back in 1993. U can't speak for whole of europe coz the whole continent does not belong to you or even ur country. It is not that easier to make peace in a country that has been in civil war for so long. I am hopeful that there will be peace one day inshallah. Music is the least of the country's problem.
