A Six Flags in Georgia decided to organize an event with the Islamic Circle of North America, which would be called “Muslim Day”.
The Six Flags is gathering criticism from all ends.
They planned to host lectures given by Imams and play islamic-approved music all day.
On the day in question, the park offered “Halal foods, open-air bazaars featuring Muslim merchants, congressional prayers, informative lectures, and a constant stream of Islamic nasheed (Muslim-approved music),” the site stated, according to Mad World News.
Muslim Day goes back much further than the Oct. 11, 2015, event that sparked intense backlash — it began in 2000 and has been protested by conservative Christian news networks and hosts like Glenn Beck.
“What we’re arguing here is maybe Muslim Day with all of the kiddies and the, you know, the dragon, you know, floaties around them going to the water park might be in bad taste on 9/12,” Beck said after news broke that the 2010 event would be happening on the day after the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, The Atlantic reported.
Angry readers expressed their dislike on the internet, calling out Six Flags for making a poor business decision. Many wondered if it was time to call a boycott for the theme park company.
Others gave the sentiment that if Six Flags decided to have a ‘Muslim Day’, why not a ‘Jew Day’ or ‘Christian Day’, etc.
