Party at a Religious Place – level 2

05-01-2021 07:00

Palestinian DJ Sama Abdul-Hadi performed at a religious place called Nabi Musa. Nabi Musa is a shrine and mosque where people normally go to pray, not to party.

People built Nabi Musa in the 12th century and many people believe that there are relics there from the Prophet Moses.

The DJ filmed at the shrine, which made some people very angry. The DJ’s brother said that they asked the ministry of tourism, and officials said that the concert could take place in Nabi Musa. Police arrested the DJ last week after the performance, and she will stay with the police for more than 15 days.

There was an online petition and people asked police to release the DJ.

Difficult words: shrine (a religious place), relics (parts of a body of a religious person which people keep to show respect for the dead person), release (to set somebody free).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
