You can take the Muslim out of an Islamic country, but apparently you can’t take the Islam – and jihad tendencies – out of the Muslim.
Yesterday, we posted on the Islamic terror links of Khabib Nurmagomedov and after the fight, the Muslim fighter seems to have sought revenge for pre-fight trash talking that included supposed jabs at his Islamic faith.
After three of his team were arrested, Nurmagomedov – a devout Muslim – suggested at the post-fight press conference that it was all about Islam and sharia stating, “you can not talk about religion, you can not talk about nation, you can not talk about this stuff. This for me is very important.”
In a free society, you can talk about religion and nation. Under sharia law, however, you can’t question or criticize Islam. The penalty includes death.

It’s been reported McGregor did not press charges and the three arrested have been released. Will visas be revoked?
Update: Indeed, it was all about Islam and like most Muslim claims – likely fraudulent: via Khabib Fans Started Religious Rumors To Justify Attack
“Khabib fans are attempting to smear me in an effort to justify his actions,” Danis told ESPN. “I have never and would never denigrate anyone’s religion. I look forward to the results of the Nevada Gaming Commission investigation which will reject this bulls–t claim and put the blame where it belongs.”
