The Communications and Multimedia Ministry has rejected the application to stage a concert here on Sept 28 by the heavy metal group ‘Lamb of God’.

The ministry said in a statement today that the performances of the group were found to infringe on the religious sensitivities and cultural values of Malaysian society.

The decision was made at a meeting of the Central Committee on Applications for Filming and Performances by Foreign Artistes (Puspal) yesterday, it added.

The United States’ group was scheduled to perform in Jalan Sultan Ismail here.
