Malaysia Shiite Ban

Malaysia Shiite Ban

In this photo taken Jan. 4, 2011, Malaysian Shiite Muslims pray at a mosque, outskirts of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Malaysian religious police raided a three-story shop-house in December 2010 and detained more than 100 Shiites who had gathered to mark the death of one of their most beloved saints, Prophet Muhammad’s grandson, who was killed in the year 680. It was one of the largest such sweeps in years, sparking outrage and fear in the country’s small but growing Shiite community. Some religious scholars see it as a worrying sign that Islamic authorities are becoming more hard-line. (AP Photo/Vincent Thian)
