About 200 protesters in Sri Lanka threw stones at the headquarters of a TV and radio company over a video by R&B singer Akon, which they say defames the Buddha.
The Maharaja Organization, which owns three TV stations and four radio channels, is the sponsor of an April 24 concert in the country by the singer.
His video for Sexy Bitch shows bikini-clad women at a pool party dancing with a clearly visible Buddha statue in the background.
About 200 protesters showed up at the organization's headquarter in Colombo with placards reading "Stop Akon's show."
The majority Sinhalese population are Buddhist and many say the video desecrates Buddha.
Maharaja Broadcasting and Television, which aired visuals of the attack, said four employees suffered minor injuries. Police said several protesters were taken into custody.
Akon, the son of Senegalese percussionist Mor Thiam, has six Grammy nods under his belt and is also a popular music producer, collaborating with the likes of Lady Gaga and Leona Lewis.
Two Facebook groups protesting against the concert have surfaced: The We Hate Akon (Abuse Music Video Against Lord Buddha) group has more than 8,000 followers while another, Akon Who Disgraced Buddhism — STOP Sri Lanka Concert, has only 800 adherents.
Maharaja has come under attack before. Last year, a group of armed men tossed hand grenades and sprayed gunfire at its studio and transmission compound, but there was no apparent motive for the attack.
