Welcome to Tajikistan… well, not really. Where banning is tradition.
The Guardian has the story:
“A decree by the education ministry prohibits “the use of fireworks, festive meals, gift-giving and raising money” over new year as well as “the installation of a Christmas tree either living (felled wood) or artificial” in schools and universities.”
So, in view of all that a simple banning of Muslims to the US temporarily sounds very rational, pretty moderate. And we get lectured on Muslim sensitivities?
Maybe the Tajiks never heard the entire story. Mary and Joseph were complying with a government census regulation and there was no room for them. Sound familiar?
