Lady Gaga Forced to Cancel Indonesian Show After threats From Islamic Group

Muslim group in indonesia protest against Lady gaga
     Lady Gaga has been forced to cancel her sold-out show in Indonesia over security concerns after Muslim hard-liners threatened violence. 
      The Islamic Defenders said Lady Gaga's sexy clothes and provocative dance moves would corrupt youth in the world's most populous Muslim country. The group said supporters had bought tickets to the concert and planned to enter and force it to be stopped and threatened that thousands of protesters would confront the singer on her way from the airport.
      Police had said they would only issue the required permits for the concert if Lady Gaga agreed to tone things down. Instead, she pulled the plug on the show, which had sold out with more than 50,000 tickets.
   Gaga had tweeted few days ago "The Jakarta situation is 2-fold: Indonesian authorities demand I censor the show & religious extremist separately, are threatening violence".
     Jakarta was supposed to be the biggest stop on Lady Gaga's Asian tour, with 52,000 tickets scooped up in just a few days.The show was scheduled to hold June 3,2012.
"This is a victory for Indonesian Muslims," said Salim Alatas, one of the leaders of the hard-line group. "Thanks to God for protecting us from a kind of devil."
