It is surprising that a Middle Eastern person would consider it wrong in some way, but I suppose he could mean the public performance for money is slutty & against god. I am a (very) amateur belly dancer myself & I can see where some would think it is seductive, since as you mention it certainly can be. However, I think most people view it as an interesting ethnic dance style. From what I have seen it has become mainstream enough that very few people mistake it for stripping anymore.
