Little Big Planet Delayed – Offends Jawas

Little Big Planet has been delayed because it offends Muslims. I wish I was making this stuff up, but you can read about it here.

According to a now-removed thread on the PlayStation Europe messageboards, the licensed LBP soundtrack song ‘Tapha Niang’ by Muslim artist Toumani Diabate’s Symmetrical Orchestra uses voice excerpts from the Qur’an in its musical composition.

We Muslims consider the mixing of music and words from our Holy Quran deeply offending.

Yes, which is why a Muslim artist, Toumani Diabate, wrote the piece in the first place.
