What is the point in this story if the baby is a Muslim though it does not state its a normal day, if he is Christian I will hold my hand up. My point being LT is stirring it up yet again.

The headline says 5 babies yet the report only mentions 4.

Buckoff - who's to say they are muslim just because they have "pakistani" names? Who's to say the parents of both Corra and Oliver are Christian? They could be Muslim converts, pagan, atheists... and so being born on Christmas day isn't special to them either!

I hope both babies and parents are all well.

Buck off mate.

It's a special day for anyone not just Christians. If you're born on Xmas day it is a special thing, it's like being born on the Queens birthday or something...

But they're not Royal?

Get over yourself, it's a light hearted story and LT are in no way stirring things up. Be happy that these families have children, who gives a flying funk what race or religion they are. So shut up and learn that just cos a baby is born on Xmas day, doesn't mean they have to be white and Christian for it to be reported.

Yes your right. The same story and same outcome as last year. A holy pointless story that bears no significance to a Muslim nor a Christian in a muslim baby being born on Christmas day.

Jesus and Mary are also at the heart of muslim belief. Actually they will be more dearer than the other religion who also claim to have full faith in the prophet.
So uneducated ones increase your knowledge by digging in to the research books and learn before deciding to fiddle around with the keyboard after 'probably' returning bored from church service!

Jesus (peace be upon him) is a Prophet in Islam. Furthermore, Mary (may God's blessings be showered upon her) has a whole Chapter named after her in the Quran. Muslims love and respect Jesus and Mary more than most people I know from other faiths.

Thus, we need to remove this ignorance from our society and actually look at the true Islam before you start criticising such a beautiful and peaceful religion. Muslims may not be perfect but Islam surely is.

Such a peaceful religion they are at the heart of every modern conflict. They even look down on and fight amongst themselves, about who the true believers are and who are just converts.

A "holy" pointless story?? An interesting word to use, meaning "sacred". Did you mean "wholly", an adverb meaning "entirely"?
