You Could Be Jailed For Up To 5 Years For Celebrating Christmas In Brunei



Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah​, one of the world's richest men, ordered the introduction of sharia in Brunei last year
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 organizing 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.

Imams have told followers in the tiny Borneo nation to follow a government edict last year banning celebrations that could lead Muslims astray and damage their faith, according to the Borneo Bulletin.
Quote
"These enforcement measures are … intended to control the act of celebrating Christmas excessively and openly, which could damage the aqidah (beliefs) of the Muslim community,"
the Ministry of Religious Affairs said in a statement explaining the edict that was published in the Brunei Times.


The statement said non-Muslims disclosing or displaying Christmas celebrations violated the penal code which prohibits propagating religion other than Islam to a Muslim.
