   Dec 27, 3:14 pm

Washington, Dec. 27 (ANI): A Turkish Muslim youth group has condemned Santa Claus for bringing booze, drugs and immorality to the society.

The Anatolia Youth Association held a demonstration in Istanbul urging residents to turn against Santa for contributing to moral decay, degeneration of their culture and leading to identity crises in their society, CNN reports.

The group used an inflatable plastic Santa as a prop, littering the ground below it with beer cans, a syringe and a cross to illustrate the dangers of inviting Santa into Turkish homes, the report added.

Turkey has been the homeland of modern Santa and many secular Muslims here decorate their homes with Christmas trees and Santas. (ANI)
