Jennifer Lopez is under fire for a risqué performance in a majority Muslim country.

The “Jenny on the Block” singer performed at the Mawazine World Rhythms International Music Festival in Morocco on May 29. She wore her typical skimpy outfits and danced a bit too sexy for some members of an education group in the restrictive country.

The group’s lawsuit claims that Lopez “disturbed public order and tarnished women’s honor and respect,” the BBC reported.

The Minister of Communication Mustapha Khalfi was criticised for allowing the gig to air on public television.

He has rejected calls for his resignation, newspapers say.

Lopez, who is often referred to as J-Lo, performed in front of 160,000 people at the festival on Friday.

The event was transmitted, with a short delay, on the 2M public TV network to the delight of fans.

But local media criticised the singer for her “suggestive poses” and for being “scantily” dressed.

A number of MPs have requested that the “education, culture and communications committee of parliament hold a meeting” to discuss why the show was broadcast.

Speaking on Twitter, Mr Khalfi said he planned to contact 2M TV’s ethics committee to discuss the issue.

“What was broadcast is unacceptable and goes against broadcasting law,” he added.

According to TMZ, if Lopez and the concert promoter are found guilty of the charges of crimes against women’s honor and inciting public disorder, they face one month to two years in prison.
