The Middle East
Several Middle Eastern countries have banned Justin Bieber from entering within their borders at all, as the singer has recently begun to get more serious about his Christian faith. As most of us are aware, many Middle Eastern countries are predominantly Muslim, and Islam is a distinct religion that differs from Christianity. Justin has been quoted in magazine interviews as praising Jesus Christ and saying that he wouldn’t be where he is now without his saviour. That kind of talk has led to Justin being unwelcome in Middle Eastern nations, as officials there don’t want a devout and vocal Christian indoctrinating their residents and citizens. When Justin’s album Purpose was released, it wasn’t even allowed to be sold in many Middle Eastern nations. First of all, Justin was photographed with a bare chest for the album cover, and most Muslims cover up extensively. Another reason Purpose was banned was for its connection to Christianity and Justin’s visible cross tattoo.
