The judge said “we do live in an Islamic country, not in an ordinary one. It seems that living in an Islamic country is becoming difficult for the Muslims. “Now told us what order shall we give?. It is the responsibility of the state and the administration. We will not do your job for you, because then you will be complaining about interference”.
