War on Christmas, Brunei Style
Via the Sydney Morning Herald: Brunei bans Christmas celebrations in public, including wearing Santa hats.
Oil-rich Brunei has banned public celebrations of Christmas, including sending festive greetings and the wearing of Santa Claus hats.
Muslims seen celebrating Christmas and non-Muslims found to be organising celebrations could face up to five years jail.
However the country’s non-Muslims, who comprise 32 per cent of the 420,000 population, can celebrate Christmas in their own communities on the condition that the celebrations are not disclosed to Muslims.
In it’s own way, the entire nation of Brunei is now just a “safe space.”
