Tajikistan; Santa murdered

Shouting "infidel" the religious fanatics (those pesky Mennonites, no doubt) struck down venerable St. Nick.  There is nothing sacred to Islam except for Islam itself.  No Western traditions are allowed to tarnish the gleaming patina of tolerance that is Islam.

Santa killed by Muslim fanatics for being ‘infidel’ in Tajikistan

DUSHANBE. – An outrageous incident occurred in Dushanbe, Tajikistan, where a group of religious fanatics killed Santa Claus.

Parvis Davlatbekov wore as Santa Claus to congratulate his friends for the New Year. However, a group of fanatics attacked and stabbed him by crying ‘infidel’ in the street.

The young man died on Monday without coming into consciousness. The unprecedented tragic incident is widely discussed in Facebook, ITARR-TASS reports.

Tajikistani MFA acknowledged officially the incident. However, it rejected that the brutal killing occurred on religious grounds but claims it was a regular violence.

Meantime, local media calls to pay attention to the discussions whether it is right to celebrate the New Year in a state where 98 % of population is Muslims.

Obviously it is not.
