As the saying goes, “When in Rome, do what the Romans do.” One’s actions can be acceptable for a culture but can also be offensive to others. This applies in the case of the recent concert held in Sri Lankan by the Latino artist Enrique Iglesias. It became controversial since some girls went beyond the limitations of what is believed to be an insult to their culture.

According to Asian Tribune, the concert held last Dec. 20 became a major shock for the whole nation because of the actions done by some girls. They can’t control their excitement and went to the stage to shower him with kisses. There are also those spectators who just threw their underwear towards him.

Although these actions are deemed normal in some countries, on the other hand for the Sri Lankan culture these are all outright offensive gestures. Their society is very conservative that public display of affection is a taboo even for married couple. In fact, they can get arrested for such behavior.

President Maithripala Sirisena expressed his disappointment over the organizers of the event. Latin Post reported he wants them to be punished.

“This is most uncivilized behavior that goes against our culture, I don’t advocate that these uncivilized women who removed their brassieres should be beaten with toxic stingray tails, but those who organized such an event should be,” Sirisena said.

The president continued, “These are not things we can be happy about. Younger generation going into such crazy acts destroying our culture. I know I will face criticism for saying this, it is not the young girls who misbehaved who need to be punished but the organizers.”

Amidst the issues, the company owners which organized the concert released a public apology through a statement in Facebook.

Is the punishment justifiable against the organizers of Enrique Iglesias’ concert? Or are there other people should take the blame for these controversies?
