of Somalia, Tajikistan and Brunei ban Christmas celebrations

When the director general of Somalia's religious affairs ministry Sheikh Mohamed Khayrow claimed that Christmas celebrations can damage the faith of the Muslim community, one just cannot help to wonder if the faith of the Muslim community is that fragile?! I don't think so & I hope Sheik's view is not echoed by others. So far, though, there are 3 Muslim-majority countries which had issued a ban on Christmas celebrations: Somalia, Tajikistan & Brunei.

- MSN, "Somalia and Brunei ban Christmas celebrations".
- Guardian, "Christmas celebrations banned in Somalia, Tajikistan and Brunei".
