Norwegian Muslim rapper DEEYAH has been sent death threats by members of her religious community, because they disapprove of her music career.
The warnings have prompted 30-year-old Deeyah to set up a project for Muslim women in music, in a bid to change attitudes.
She tells the New Statesman magazine: "In many Muslim communities, there is virtually no support for young women who want to express themselves as creative artists. It's not one of the professions expected of a woman. Many are actively discouraged from expressing their thoughts and dreams through music. A big part of the problem is the cultural expectations placed upon women. There is the association of music with sexuality and a westernised form of expression."
She says of her project, "The main aim I had in putting together the Sisterhood project was to let young Muslim girls know they are not alone in their struggles to get their music out there".
