The way some are putting politics ahead of their beliefs, at least that is the way it seems to me, is rather worrying and could set a precedent for the further politicizing of religion.
The lines were blurred enough as they were with extremists cofusing the two but now moderates are also willing to play politics with sacred beliefs.
I recall a wise piece of advice being given that we should give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and give to God what belongs to God.
Are the many Muslim leaders who are now distancing themselves from performing ceremony giving to Caesar what belongs to God?
"I don't think I could ethically lead a prayer for him, but I would not stop people from praying upon him."
Just wanted to add, for those saying prayers, keep everyone in mind including his family.
