This country banned Samosas! And here is the reason why

Even the thought of banning samosa is such a criminal one, but then the world has its own weirdness!
Al-Shabaab group in Somalia for some reasons considered too much resemblance of Samosa with Chrisitan Holy Trinity associating Samosa with “hate” and “intolerance”.
They went so far that in July 2011, the extremist group used vehicles mounted with loudspeakers announcing ban of Samosas.  Samosas were considered too “offensive” and “Christian”.
This move meant that people would be punished if seen eating or cooking a Samosa.
