A British DJ has been sentenced to a year in jail by a Tunisian court after he played a dance remix of the
Muslim call to prayer in a night club
DJ Dax J, who had already fled the country was charged with public indecency and offending public morality in the court case, according to a report.
He was said to have performed at the Orbit Festival in a club located in the coastal city of Hammamet on Friday and caused controversy on social media after he played a remix of the Muslim call to prayer at the event.
DJ Dax J later took to his Facebook page to apologize after receiving threatening messages from Muslims and was later forced to delete his account.
