Councils across Wales BANNED from using the word ‘purdah’ in case it offends Muslims

It has been widely used for decades to describe a pre-election period in which official government announcements cannot be made.

But it also refers to the Islamic practice in some parts of the world where women are not allowed to be seen.

Panicked council chiefs across the border are now so worried about “religious sensitivities” they have decided to outlaw the word altogether.

    So is bat shit crazy muslims still allowed?

    • Watchman

      No. Report yourself to the nearest Welsh police station for hate speech violations immediately.

    • Maurice Miner

      Yes. Just don’t say it like: “cachu ystlumod Mwslimiaid crazy”

    • Shebel

      It is encouraged.

  • So, banning the word makes the reality disappear?

    Once the infidels stop thinking, saying or doing anything in case in offends Muslims, there’s no way out except the sword or the grave.

    Wales would improve quite a bit if a large portion of their vote whores were put in purdah for a decade or so.

  • Dana Garcia

    Wait, isn’t offending muslims a virtuous and desirable act, one that stands for western free speech??

  • Editor

    Wait, before you finalize your list of banned words, can I add kafir, jihad, burka, halal and “apes and pigs”? Those words offend my “religious sensitivities”.

    What words or practices have Muslims given up because it caused offense to infidels?
    Yeah, I didn’t think so.

    • Shebel

      Actually ,back in the day, in some books –Muslims were called ‘Infidels’.
      I think that it was when referring to Saladin.
      Strange- how times have changed.
