“Christmas is evil” claims radicals’ poster campaign
Country/Region: United Kingdom, Europe
Police have been investigating allegations of religious hate crime in Tower Hamlets following complaints about an anti-Christmas poster campaign by an Islamic group.
The posters, which were displayed in parts of London over the festive season, claim that Christmas is responsible for a litany of problems including sexually transmitted diseases, rape, teenage pregnancies, abortion, promiscuity, crime, paedophilia, paganism, domestic violence, homelessness, vandalism, alcohol and drugs. Another offence of Christmas, it states, is “claiming God has a son”.
In an apparent attempt to persuade people to convert, the group claims that “in Islam we are protected from all these evils”. But proclaiming the supposed virtues of Islam, they turn a blind eye to the similar problems that are prevalent in Muslim societies, including the most hardline.
This anti-Christian campaign has been condemned by a local MP and the local council. It remains to be seen what action the police will take in response to what normally would be treated as a major hate crime.
