KUALA LAMPUR: Muslim-majority Malaysia has stopped playing the song “Despacito” on public broadcast stations, a senior minister said Thursday after critics labelled it un-Islamic.
Salleh Said Keruak, communications and multimedia minister, told AFP that his ministry received numerous complaints over the steamy lyrics of the reggaeton beat song that has won international popularity.
“Despacito will not be aired by the government-owned broadcast stations because we received public complaints. The lyrics are not suitable to be heard,” he said.

TUNIS: Tunisia has become the latest Arab country to ban “Wonder Woman” over its Israeli protagonist who defended the Jewish state’s 2014 war on Gaza.
