A British DJ named Dax J is facing charges of “offending public morality” after playing a dance remix of the Muslim call to prayer in a nightclub in Tunisia.
According to Express, Ylyes Miladi, a spokesperson for the local prosecutor’s office said that the DJ would be considered a “fugitive” if he did not surrender to authorities.
In addition, the club’s manager and one of the event organisers had been detained for “violation against good morals and public outrage against modesty.”
Reports also say that Dax J has received multiple death threats for his song choice at the Orbit music festival and was forced to remove his social media accounts.
Prior to deleting his Facebook, he made a post offering his “sincere apologies to anyone who may have been offended by music that I played at Orbit Festival in Tunisia on Friday”.
