Ban the Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event of Oktoberfest
Dear City council of Munich,
I am writing this letter to bring to your attention something that I
and many Muslims believe is unfair and requires attention. I would like to inform you that the Oktoberfest is an Intolerant and Anti-Islamic event. We tried to ignore the event, but there too many Un-Islamic acts done at the Oktoberfest. Such as alcohol consumption, public nudity etc.
We understand that the Oktoberfest is a yearly German tradition, but we, Muslims, can not tolerate this Un-Islamic event, because it offends us and all Muslims on the earth. We are requesting the immediate cancellation of the upcoming Oktoberfest event.
We also believe that the Oktoberfest might also offend all the Muslim refugees coming from Syria, Iraq,
Afghanistan. The cancellation of the Oktoberfest event will help refugees not to forget their Islamic history. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

With all the hoax bs coming out from right wing outlets I'm gonna call it fake, but the point is it's just more propaganda against Muslims which suits the current climate. Anyone can make a petition and sign it with an Islamic sounding name

I suppose the larger question is do Muslims really find Oktoberfest offensive?
Yes, there's drinking and scantily-clad women associated with it...and I can see how this might be something many Muslims might want to avoid... but I've never heard of any objections from the Muslim community about any other Oktoberfests before.
This feels manufactured to coincide with the timing of influx of refugees and the yearly occurence of Oktoberfest in Munich.
