In the video, a man is shown wearing two pendants, one of which says Allah (the word for God in Arabic). Perry, who plays a queen-like figure in the video, zaps the man with lightening and both he and the pendant disintegrate into sand.
Petitioners complain that the video is blasphemous.
The video which has an Ancient Egypt theme, features other nonsensical aspects such as cat-human hybrid as body guards with whom Perry pole dances with, a dog which walks on its hind legs, and Perry eating spicy junk food.
The petition, which has 30,000 signatures so far, says that its support will show that, “that people from different walks of life, different religions and from different parts of the world, agree that the video promotes blasphemy, using the name of God in an irrelevant and distasteful manner would be considered inappropriate by any religion.”
