Five Teenage Girls ‘convert’ to Islam for Justin Bieber Tickets

A
NORWEGIAN TV show has been slammed for tricking teenagers into agreeing to
convert to Islam to win Justin Bieber tickets.

Five
teenage girls agreed to convert on the promise they would receive tickets to
see the pop star – totally unaware they were being duped for a spoof show.

The
Anne-Kat Hærland comedy show saw the girls remove their makeup, wear hijabs and
recite Islamic creed in Arabic.

Bishop
Halvor Nordhaug, from the Norwegian Lutheran Church, told Norwegian paper Dagen
he thought the stunt was “tragic”.

He said: “This is an example of an idea where irony and lack of respect
turns into something tragic.

“I
believe the contest is a foolish statement and it shows a lack of respect for
what faith means.”

The
girls were also told to repeat what translated to: “Justin Bieber is impure and
probably gay.”

The
show’s presenter said: “We wanted to find out how far Norwegian ‘Beliebers’ are
willing to go for tickets to one of Bieber’s concerts.”

Justin
Bieber recently cancelled a concert in Oman after Muslim leaders in the country
criticised the singer and deemed his moves “too sexy”.

Bieber
was in Norway earlier this month as part of his world tour.
