A majority of the people of Malaysia are Muslim, but the nation contains a significant population of non-Muslims. In recent months there has been a growth in attempts to enforce sharia laws in the nation and this has impacted many non-Muslim groups. A US hip-hop band, Black Eyed Peas, in an effort to avoid problems at their concert since alcohol would be served, initially banned Muslims from attending. However, after consideration, they have lifted the ban. Organizers of the concert now say anyone 18 or older can attend.
A basic problem facing Muslims is that some drink alcohol and love attending rock concerts, but are prevented from doing what they wish because of fundamentalists. Muslims at some point have to reconcile ancient traditions with the modern world.
