Comments: Where are all those
'Moderate' Muslims should also go and tell these Muslims in the Maldives about 'true' Islam. It appears that they 'misunderstood' or have 'wrong views' of Islam. These Muslims believe in an 'Islamophobic' Islam.
The real reason these Muslims want to ban Christmas and just about anything that's not Islamic is because they are scared that Muslims might leave Islam and convert to Christianity.
And as usual, there will be a double-standards when it comes to them, and they will insist on being allowed to promote Islam to non-Muslims and will try to convert.
