As the whole world gears up to celebrate Valentine ‘s Day, Sudanese people face the oh-so-troubling task of upsetting the Muslim clerics of Sudan. Sudan Ulema Authority has issued a statement encouraging Sudanese folks to boycott this evil tradition of celebrating love, because it’s a Christian tradition, and we all know how horrendous it is to imitate those poopy infidels.
Sheikh Hassan Hamid, in a statement released to Reuters news agency, said: “Valentine’s Day comes from Western countries. I call on Muslims not to imitate Christians.” Members of the Ulema Authority encouraged young couples to save money for ‘better uses’ such as saving up for a wedding.
Yeah, because that overpriced wedding with a multitude of un-Islamic cultural traditions is more Sharia-adherent than an exchange of flowers and chocolate. Right.
