It’s Ramadan, and you know what that means — the religious police are out in full force, scouring the streets for violations of sharia and failures to adhere to Islam’s strict rules and regulations.
Like eating in public during the holy month.
That’s what got one man arrested, anyway.
Police tied to the Palestinian Authority arrested a guy for the crime of eating in public during Ramadan.
World Israel News has the story:
“Palestinian police are arresting people on the streets on charges of eating in public during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
“Palestinian police arrested a man in Tubas on Wednesday for “violating the sacredness of Ramadan” by eating in public during the month holy to Muslims.
“Police said in the statement that they saw a man ‘breaking the fast’ publicly and arrested him, and that he would face legal consequences for the act, the Palestinian Ma’an news agency reported.
“The Muslim month of Ramadan is observed by fasting from dawn until sunset.”
Good thing he wasn’t eating pork, right?
