Banjul – The Gambia has banned music, dancing and drumming during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, on pain of being arrested – and people are complying, police said.

Ordinary citizens in the small west African country – whose president declared it an Islamic state in December – are being urged to report anyone seen engaging in the activities to authorities, a spokesperson said on Monday.

Crazy, we have Baptists all throughout the South over here who still think dancing is evil, and lots of churches that ban musical instruments.

And then there's the white supremacist leaders who forbid their supporters from listening to music created by non-whites ... Rolling Eyes

I watched a documentary about the American KKK and the leader there was a guitarist - he loved Jimmy Hendrix lol!
The docu-maker says "Erm you know Hendrix is black....right?" Rolling Eyes
