As Selena Gomez thrilled thousands of fans in Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam, last night, some 20 members of an Islamic group performed solat hajat (special prayers) and recited Yasin just outside her concert premises.

Pertubuhan Kebajikan Darul Islah Malaysia (Perkid) president Masridi Sat told Malaysiakini last night that they did this to prevent the concert from triggering any disasters.

"Kelantan has been flooded, Aceh was hit with earthquakes. Any time, something could happen to us.

"If disaster strikes, it doesn't matter whether someone is religious or not, everyone will be affected. So, we do not want to get disasters," he said.
