Norway imam: Muslim kids should shun birthday parties
Imam Abdikadir Mahamed Yussuf in Kristiansand thinks that Muslims shouldn't wish people happy birthday, attend birthday parties or say 'Merry Christmas'.
"I believe that birthdays are not a part of our religion. That pertains to both children and adults," the 49-year-old imam Abdikadir Mahamed Yussuf told Fæderlandsvennen.
Yusuf is the leader of the mosque in Posebyen in Kristiansand, which is the largest Muslim community in Southern Norway.
