The Anti-Black Horse Campaign is growing by the minute. Katy Perry and her Production company will have to understand that the mix message in the new music video is forcefully being rejected by the Muslim community.

28 million views in 4 days shows how many people were anticipating this video.The Pepsi promotional stunt on Twitter encouraged fans to participate in a voting program, where fans could unlock song titles and their respective lyrics by tweeting the hashtag “#KATYNOW”. The chosen tracks for the campaign were “Walking on Air” and “Dark Horse”. Once tweets voting for each song reached a certain number, their respective samples were unlocked and fans could vote for which one they wanted to have an early release on digital retailers. “Dark Horse”, won and was released on September 17, 2013 on the iTunes Store.However, due to its commercial success, it was sent to contemporary hit and rhythmic radio stations on December 17, 2013 as Prisms third official single.

Is Katy Perry aware of the message she is sending out or is she even in control of the video and the production?

The people who worked close with her on the project affirm it. The director of the Music Video Cullen defends the video and says ” Ancient Egypt is part of what he calls our “shared collective mythology”. He also said “The most important thing is that when you create something, and this is actually something Katy and I worked to do”.

Rapper Juicy J who is featured in the video says ” very professionally, the verse I did on that song, she was singing it”. He adds “She’s really a genius, she was by the mixing board and telling the guy what to take in and take out, She’s really hands-on with her music, she knows music”. Katy talks about the song herself, in an interview, she says  she wanted the song to have a “witchy, spell-y kind of black magic-y idea”, so she wrote it from the perspective of a witch warning a man not to fall in love with her because if he does, she will be his last. Could this be the reason behind the failure of her marriage ?

The Qur’an supports the idea that Black Magic could be used to separate or manipulate Man and Woman perception of each other. What is so striking about this is that the US singer claims it herself and says that the motivation behind the song was to warn men.

Of course a warning that is not being taking seriously by her 28 mio viewers on Youtube. However let us follow the narrative the Qur’an presents. And the noble Quran narrates

And they followed [instead] what the devils had recited during the reign of Solomon. It was not Solomon who disbelieved, but the devils disbelieved, teaching people magic and that which was revealed to the two angels at Babylon, Harut and Marut. But the two angels do not teach anyone unless they say, “We are a trial, so do not disbelieve [by practicing magic].” And [yet] they learn from them that by which they cause separation between a man and his wife. But they do not harm anyone through it except by permission of Allah . And the people learn what harms them and does not benefit them. But the Children of Israel certainly knew that whoever purchased the magic would not have in the Hereafter any share. And wretched is that for which they sold themselves, if they only knew”     { Surah Baraqah}

I am literally speechless the Quran has the answer to all issues we can think of.  ” And wrected is that for which they sold themselves, if the only knew” This is what Imran Hussein beautifully conveys in his video as responds to Katy Perry. He takes the attention away from the controversial “Allah-Chain -scene” and gives a spiritual advice. see video here. {Imran Hussein}

imran Khan { Anticipation of Dawah man’s Video}

About an hour ago Dawah Man posted  the picture above stating he also will respond to the incident Insha Allah which means it will be his fifth video to a Celebrity.  His Eminem video that went viral caused a whole generation for the first time to unite against an A-list super mega star. Dawah man got his point across in a unmatched fashion, and the result of that is  50 thousand views see video here { Dawah To Eminem} . What can we expect and from which angle will he tackle this, we are still waiting for his respond. The Muslim are sharp and more than willing to be vocal about where the red line needs to be drawn, when associating anything to Allah swt. I think the most shocking thing about the fiasco is that the fans and, now even academics praise her for creativity and being accurate as Robert K. Ritner, Professor of Egyptology at the University of Chicago, said “Whoever put this together actually knew something about the myth of Cleopatra. There are a number of features in here that I could use in class”.

The Muslim responds is an E-petition circulating online with over 30 thousand supporters. There are about 15 thousand sign up  needed for You tube remove the video. So please share this article, sign up the E-Petition here{ Remove} Please leave us comment what you think about the uproar not justified ?.

  1. That’s…creepy. But in all honesty, the anti-Islam stuff is growing rapidly by the minute all over the world, and most of the ummah refuse to realize it. It’s disgusting how this is just accepted, truly vile.
