Iraq’s Christians not pleased, they were hoodwinked into believing only an extra tax would be levied, not a complete ban. Further proof that Islam and its sharia law is a public square ideology, affecting Muslims and other people of different faiths as well.

Iraq parliament passes bill to ban alcohol

BAGHDAD // Iraq’s parliament has passed a law forbidding the import, production or selling of alcoholic beverages in a surprise move that angered many in the country’s Christian community who rely on the business.

The law, passed on Saturday night, imposes a fine of up to 25 million Iraqi dinars, or Dh77,690, for anyone violating the ban.

It is not clear how strictly the law would be enforced, and it could still be struck down by the supreme court.

Alcohol has always been available in Iraq’s larger cities, mainly from shops run by Christians. Those shops are currently closed because of the Shiite holy month of Muharram.

The Iraqi assembly announced the ban on its website but did not say how many lawmakers voted for or against it. The parliament is dominated by Shiite Islamist parties.

Christian lawmaker Joseph Slaiwa said the “unjust” ban was slipped into a draft law regulating the income of municipal authorities without lawmakers being notified. The original article only called for imposing taxes on liquor stores and restaurants serving liquor, he said.

“This ban is unconstitutional, as the constitution acknowledges the rights of non-Muslim minorities and ethnic groups who live alongside Muslims in Iraq,” he said. Some lawmakers will submit an appeal at the high federal court, he said.
