British DJ Dax Heddon, better known as Dax J, has been sentenced one year in prison in Tunisia after playing a remix of the Muslim call to prayer at a nightclub.

The nightclub was subsequently closed. Dax has been charged with public indecency and offending public morality.

Dax had already left the country so he would not have to serve the sentence. He has however released an apology and shut down all of his social media accounts. He also reportedly received death threats after the incident. Orbit festival organisers said Dax “did not realize it might offend an audience from a Muslim country like ours.”  The incident has segregated social media users. Some claim the sentence is justified while others think the punishment is too harsh.
