Snoop Dogg insults Parsi Culture in his new video, community enraged

By NewsGram Staff Writer

Born in California, USA, the famous American hip-hop artist, Snoop Dogg is in controversies yet again. Earlier, he has often been targeted by various women’s groups for penning sexist lyrics and has been banned in several countries for his spiteful remarks.Snoop_Dogg_performing_at_Hovefestivalen_2012

Now, his latest song, King hasn’t gone well with the Parsis. They have expressed their displeasure at the video of this song which features the artist seated under Faravahar, a symbol of the Zoroastrian sacred guardian angel. The Zoroastrian sacred guardian angel is a part of ancient Persian culture and thus, for Parsis, this holds a massive importance.

Moreover, the women clad in skimpy clothes in the video have further enraged the Zoroastrians. Right from the beginning of the video, the women are smoking hookahs, drinking, and their pelvic thrusts are accentuated. There is a pseudo Persian setting and the sacred guardian angel has been trivialised. This has offended the sentiments of Parsis who were instantly outraged.

Irate Parsis have taken screenshots of the offending images and created a Change.org petition calling for the artistes to remove the song and apologise.

The petition says, “The rap artist Snoop Dogg is featured in a recently released music video of the song King by Iranian pop singer Amitis. The video shows Persian motifs including the “Faravashi” or the Farohar, a sacred symbol depicting the guardian angel. Zoroastrians and Parsis all over the world worship the Farohar as a religious symbol. The use of it in a music video is very insensitive towards the religious beliefs of one of the oldest monotheistic religions in the world. We would respectfully ask Amitis, Snoop Dogg and their team to remove the video and tender an apology to Zoroastrians worldwide.”

 

Snoop Dogg has been quite popular for the element of funk that he brings in his music. His braided hairstyles are his trademark. Today (12th June) is his 18th marriage anniversary.
