Heavy metal veterans Slayer's new album CHRIST ILLUSION has been recalled in India following protests by religious organisations. EMI Virgin India has decided to withdraw the disc, which was released in August (06), from shops. The decision was taken following lobbying from the Catholic Secular Forum (CSF), which objects to the lyrics to song SKELETON CHRIST and the depiction of Jesus Christ on the Christ Illusion sleeve. CSG also claims the album "will affect the sensibilities of Muslims on the track JIHAD and secular Indians who have respect for all faiths". EMI Virgin India's KAVERI KHULLAR says, "We met with the CSF and were apologetic while assuring them that all copies of the album will be pulled out. We have no plans of re-issuing it in any way."
