Graz: Yodeler fined for disturbing prayer service
A man in Austria was fined for yodeling while mowing the grass. The man was singing Friday afternoon, and bothered his Muslim neighbors who were listening to the muezzin just then.
The police was called in and brought the 63 year old pensioner to the court in Graz. "The complaint boiled down to the fact that my yodeling resembled their muezzin. But it wasn't my intention at all to imitate him," the perplexed man told Austrian newspaper Krone Zeitung Saturday.
The court didn't believe the man and fined him 800 euro. The relations with him Muslim neighbors hadn't gotten better.
