Malaysian mufti tries to ban t-shirts....

Could you imagine the horror of someone wearing a Manchester United T-shirt???
Muslims should not wear football shirts with diabolical or religious symbols of other religions: for example the Manchester United shirts with a famous red devil. Other football shirts deemed unacceptable by the religious leaders include those of Brazil, Portugal, Serbia, Barcelona and Norway because their crests all carry images of a cross. The Johor Religious Council adviser and the Mufti of Perak both state that images of crosses, liquor brands and devils on football shirts are forbidden by Islam and should not be worn by Muslims. "There is no excuse for wearing such garments because it means, as a Muslim, you are idolising the symbol of another religion," Datuk Nooh Gadot, the Mufti of Johor, said. Muslims have been not to buy or accept such shirts as a gift. Manchester United is popular in Malaysia so much so that in 2006 an agreement was signed between the team and the Malaysian tourist authorities.
