Manchester United football shirts have been banned in parts of Malaysia because the image of the famed red devil is forbidden in Islam.
Muslim leaders ruled that images on football shirts of crosses, alcohol brands and devils are an insult to Allah and should not be worn.
Manchester United is a hugely popular brand in the Muslim-majority country and the club's summer tour last year included two games against a Malaysia XI played in front of capacity 40,000 crowds.
Other football shirts deemed unacceptable include Brazil, Portugal, Serbia, Barcelona and Norway because their crests all carry images of a cross. "There is no excuse for wearing such garments because it means, as a Muslim, you are idolising the symbol of another religion," said Datuk Nooh Gadot, the Mufti of Johor state. The Mufti of Perak, Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria, said that Muslims wearing such football shirts "leads to a path of sin".
In March, Manchester United signed a sponsorship deal with communications group Telekom Malaysia, further raising their profile as the leading sports team in the country.
"Anyone who went on our tour of the Far East last summer knows the strength of feeling that Malaysians have for the club," David Gill, the Manchester United chief executive, said.
Malaysian supporters of the club expressed anger at the ban on fan websites.

Christmas light switch on for Blackburn and Darwen


Blackburn's Christmas lights are now sparkling as the town's fantastic Christmas programme got under way last weekend.

Former Blue singer, and now solo artist, Simon Webbe pressed the button in Blackburn on Saturday, November 14.

Simon, who also appeared in 2008’s “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here,” turned on the lights with 107 the Bee. The fun started at 4pm with fireworks commencing at 6pm.

Attention now turns to Darwen where former X-Factor star Chico is set to light things up this Saturday, November 21.

Chico, famous for asking audiences what time is it to which they reply, “it’s Chico time”, will switch Darwen’s lights on from 4pm.

Thousands of pounds have been spent on new lights this year both in Blackburn and Darwen town centres and Blackburn market.

The focus of Blackburn’s Christmas festivities is the giant Ferris wheel, similar to the London and Manchester eyes.

The 33-metre wheel will be installed on the town hall square in King William Street throughout December.

It has 24 carriages which hold four people each and takes around a minute to revolve, giving fantastic views of the town centre and beyond. And at just £1 a ride, everyone can have a go.

It will be running every day and in the evening from Thursday, December 10 for four weeks. And it will be accompanied by Christmas themed food stalls. The giant wheel, which is being supplied by Jan De Koning who is based in the North West, will be set up from Sunday, December 6.

In Darwen, the popular ice rink is back on December 19, 20 and 21, accompanied by lots of festive fun including Punch and Judy, Darwen Brass Band, balloon modelling, giant inflatables and much more.

A host of other events are planned including a Santa’s Grotto at Blackburn Market.

It was last year.

I googled to see if there was any mention of a ban of Santa or his grotto in either Blackburn or Wolverhampton: couldn't find anything.

dont be fooled by thinking this is some silly mad idea thought up in some lost part of the world, the very same kind of sentiments are being preached across europe and the uk.
