Turkish rock band 'Duman' protested for changing Quran's words in song
Hürriyet photoA group of conservative Süleyman Demirel University (SDÜ) students has staged a protest against Turkish rock band “Duman,” calling on them to cancel an upcoming concert in the southern province of Isparta for allegedly altering a Quranic verse in a song, Anatolia News Agency has reported.
The group claimed that Duman had joined the "defamation campaign" against Muslim people all around the world by changing a verse of the Quran in their song "Rezil” (Disgraceful).
"We want Isparta's authorities to [cancel] this concert, as it happened earlier before,” the student group's spokesman said.
Duman refers to a verse from the Quran which originally says "Lam yalid wa lam yulad” (He [God] neither begot anyone, nor was he begotten) and changes it into "Lam yalid ve löp yutar” (Lam yalid and he gulps down).
