吳宗憲向回教徒正式道歉

Entertainer apologizes formallyfor remarks over Muslim culture

Popular Taiwanese entertainer Jacky Wu yesterday offered a humble public apology for a gaffe he made on his variety show that has outraged the island's Muslim community.

知名台灣藝人吳宗憲先前在綜藝節目上失言而激怒台灣穆斯林回教徒,昨日,他為此而嚴正道歉。

Wu stirred up a public outcry when he said last month that Muslims did not eat pork because their prophet Mohammed had once drunk pig milk.

上月,吳宗憲說回教徒不吃豬肉是因為先知穆罕默德喝過豬奶,此話一出,引起廣大回教徒抗議。

He apologized the following week on air, but his mea culpa was deemed“insincere”by Taiwan's Muslim community, which numbers 50,000 to 60,000.

他於隔周在節目中道歉,但台灣回教徒認為他的道歉毫無誠意。(台灣回教徒約五萬至六萬人。)

“Wu's comment was ignorant and it hurt the feelings of Muslims and insulted our religion,”said Salahuding Chao-yen Ma, chairman of the Taipei Grand Mosque.

台北清真寺負責人馬超彥表示:「吳宗憲的無知言論,對回教徒造成傷害,也侮辱了我們的宗教。」

Yesterday, a solemn-faced Wu bowed deeply before the cameras, saying: “I gave my deepest apology to Muslim friends.”

昨日,在眾多媒體前,吳宗憲表情肅穆,並深深一鞠躬,說道:「向穆斯林朋友深深一鞠躬,代表我最深的歉意。」

“We extend our deepest apology to the Muslim community for the host's ignorance and lack of knowledge of the religion,”said TTV acting program manager Wang Li-chen.

台視節目部代理經理王莉貞表示:「我們為主持人的無知與缺乏宗教常識,向回教徒們致上最深歉意。」

“We would also from now on endeavor to promote understanding of Islam and other faiths.”

「從現在起,我們也將努力促進大眾對於伊斯蘭與其他宗教信仰的了解。」

“TTV can use this issue as an opportunity to educate the public and spread information about the correct concepts of Muslim,” Ma told AFP.

馬超彥向法新社表示:「台視可以將此事當作一個機會,藉機教育大眾與傳遞正確的回教思想。」
