I agree that the Carmanian viziers classify Shargash as evil and forbids *Carmanians* from worshiping it. That being said, Carmania is part of the Lunar Empire and the Emperor allows the city of Alkoth to worship evil demons. An Alkothi in Oronin or Karasal satrapies is not going to run into trouble, period. An Alkothi in the West Reaches is probably forbidden from offering sacrifices and worship to his evil demon (except at one of the temples subject to Dara Happan religious law and not the viziers).
