Australia: It’s beginning to look a lot like fatwa!

December 23, 2012

The head imam at Lakemba, Sheikh Yahya Safi, ha[s] told the congregation during prayers that they should not take part in anything to do with Christmas…

The fatwa, which has sparked widespread community debate and condemnation, warns that the “disbelievers are trying to draw Muslims away from the straight path”.

SMH

Straight to where, exactly?

Update: The fatwa post has been removed.

  1. I don’t understand. Why would Muslims need to be ‘told’ not to have anything to do with Christmas, when such a thing isn’t a part of their cultural background to begin with? Is it our old foe, sensationalism, at work again, trying to incite more hatred and intolerance in western society?
