The ban was imposed by the PAS-led state government under an enactment on entertainment passed in 1998.

A girl tries her hand at Wayang Kulit, a traditional puppet-shadow play which is not allowed to be performed openly in Kelantan.

Karima Bennoune, who is UN’s special rapporteur in the field of cultural rights, said it will be a shame if the arts forms were left to die, adding that Malaysians especially the Kelantanese would lose a part of their culture. “Instead these cultures with rich tradition should be celebrated and appreciated as it is one of the oldest performing arts in the world, thus I hope that the ban will be lifted as soon possible,” she told reporters at the 8th World Summit on Arts and Culture Kuala Lumpur 2019 yesterday.

She said she was pleased that bans on some books had been lifted recently and charges dropped on a prominent cartoonist.
