Earlier in April, the rest of the world condemned monarch-ruled Brunei after announcing the introduction of the Sharia penal code that would include penalties such as the severing of limbs and death by stoning.

The tiny but prosperous state on the island of Borneo that is ruled by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, has now made international headlines once again after the state announced a ban on Christmas.

The ban was declared on the internationally celebrated Christian holiday because the religious affairs ministry said that publicly marking non-Islamic rituals or festivities could be seen as propagations of religions other than Islam.

Roughly 20 per cent of Brunei’s residents comprise of non-Muslims, including sizeable Buddhist and Christian communities.

Believers of other religions that live under the rule of an Islamic country – according to Islam – may practice their religion or celebrate their religious festivities among their community, with the condition that the celebrations are not disclosed or displayed publicly to Muslims,

Muslims should be careful not to follow celebrations such as these that are not in any way related to Islam… and could unknowingly damage the faith of Muslims.‘ Said the government of Brunei in a statement.

The statement also noted that businesses that publicly displayed Christmas decorations would be asked to take them down– to which the businesses had given their ‘full cooperation’ in the matter.

The penalty for celebrating Christmas in Brunei is punishable with a jail term of up to 5-years.

To look on the bright side, at least their prisons are going to have good Christmas decorations going forwards.

A small example of the Christian persecution which is rife across the world.

You only have to look at charities like www.opendoorsuk.org . Open Doors World Watch List which highlights the top 50 countries where it is most difficult to live as a Christian.

The devil sure is scared of the light of the world.

If people weren't being tortured for their faith this flippant remark might be funny.

Obviously this is a mental disorder of all Muslims in Brunei who agree with this and support their government. It is in no way a representation of Islam.

Not sure what the OP's point is.

Is he suggesting that laws trying to ban other religions are bad and we all have to be tolerant of others' faiths?

Or should a country be allowed to say if you are in our country, this is our faith, you can't celebrate another one. If you want to celebrate another one there are plenty of other countries you should go to?

What does it mean 5 years jail time for anyone who celebrates Christmas. It is not enforced. You can't stop people from doing what they want in their own homes.
