Political correctness and fundamentalism seems to be extreme this Christmas. Today there is an article in a newspaper here debating whether it is offensive to say Merry Christmas to Muslims. People are writing comments about how haram it is to say it to Muslims. It is a ridiculous debate and one that is getting people very wound up.
I see no problem saying Happy/Merry Christmas to people but I have noticed I am more conscious of saying it to people in case they get offended. It’s crazy!
Anyway, I’m going to ignore the naysayers. As a very happy liberal Muslim i would like to say I’m listening to my Christmas Album, thinking about defrosting the chicken and the Christmas movies I’ll be watching with my friends during Christmas time.
Merry Christmas to all my lovely family and friends.
Bah Humbug to the rest of you.
