Beirut Nightclub Shut Down over Explicit Show


A Beirut nightclub has been shut down on Tuesday by the interior ministry after explicit footage on the dance floor circulating on social media.

Interior Minister Nouhad al-Mashnouq ordered the nightclub to be closed after viewing a video posted on social media showing half-naked women dancing.

“After viewing the video in a nightclub in Beirut on social media showing pornographic show, the Interior Minister asked the Internal Security Forces to investigate the matter and close the nightclub and turn those responsible to the competent judicial authorities,” Mashnouq's media office said on twitter.

The video has circulated over the weekend and drew sharp criticism on social media.

The name of the club was not revealed.

I don't understand why any Muslim or Christian would have a problem with closing down any nightclub? Do you really think ANY Prophet would allow nightclubs? Or would virgin Mary peace be upon her approve of men and women dancing together, drinking and showing their bodies?

Lebanese have killed eachother over religion yet how many actually follow their Prophets teachings in their daily life and in their opinions?

Decide. You can't claim to love God and His Prophet while also being against their rules on how human beings should act. Or is religion only something you use to be against someone else?

A clear sign of religion simply continuing to get itself involved in politics, same old story. Hypocrites at best.

The club is called "Discotek". And the artists and performers are famous, they are Le Cirque du Soir...

Mashnouq, Hizbalot and friends are attacking art and artists just like Daesh did. They used the very same arguments.

You maybe right as I am sure they somehow get a cut out of the clubs revenue.

The only art they know is the $100 bill they snap in front of their Russian date at the end of their night. I have tried to see the direct translation for word hypocrite in Arabic and guess what? we have a variety of words but nothing that truly inscribes a hypocrite. Why? it has to be lack of the ability to either understand it or rejecting it as an idea. These hipos' kneel and pray umpteen times a day yet have the ability to lie and play deceit at will when called for. Sadly it has become our national past-time.
