The atmosphere in Europe can easily be described as tense at the moment, with authorities battling terror on a scale that was previously unheard of. Thus it is surprising that a song titled "Allahu Akbar" has held the number one spot on the UK Spotify chart, and 5th place on the international charts.
The hit was created by an anonymous artist named "DJ Inappropriate." The song is a upbeat dance track, leading some to believe that it is not meant to incite, but rather serves as a protest against "modest" Islamist terrorists. With that said, no one truly knows the purpose of the song.
Spotify charts, which are part of the global company's online streaming service, are typically a good measure of the international popularity of a song.
"Allahu Akbar," originally a harmless call by Muslim worshippers praising god, has become more and more identifiable with Islamic terror in recent years. The terrorists who conducted the attacks in Paris two weeks ago also sounded the call during their murderous acts.
