Sharia UK: Non-Muslim police officers take part in 18-hour Ramadan fast

58

Why don’t we hear of similar initiatives for Rosh Hashanah, Lent, etc? Ever hear of a police force fasting for Yom Kippur?

If non-Muslims want to “gain a better understanding” of Islam, they ought to read Ibn Warrraq and Robert Spencer, for starters.

Non-Muslim police officers take part in 18-hour Ramadan fast to ‘gain a better understanding’ of the local community

  • Northamptonshire Police said move was to ‘show unity’ of Islamic community
  • The police force added it was an attempt to get ‘deeper into community roots’
  • PSCO’s were pictured at the Headlands Mosque in Northamption for iftar meal

By Charlie Bayliss For Mailonline, 14 June 2018:

Non-Muslim police officers have taken part in an 18-hour fast for Ramadan to help boost relations with the Islamic community.

Northamptonshire Police said the move was to ‘show unity’ and ‘gain a better understanding’ of the local community during the Muslim holy month.

PSCO’s were this week pictured at the Headlands Mosque in Northampton, joining in with the evening iftar meal having fasted from sunrise to sunset.

Trustee of the Mosque, Mr Ayub Abdulla, said: ‘It was heartening to see people from the police taking part in the fast and joining us with their families for the evening meal.

‘The local officers, in particular our two local PCSO are extremely helpful and take an active interest in helping us and facilitating greater understanding between us.’

Positive Action Officer, Kamilla Poole, said: ‘Fasting for the day with no food and water was quite an experience and I realised that it requires a significant level of dedication and self control to do it.

‘As part of my role, I want to get deeper into the community roots to help increase participation and recruitment from all parts of the community.’

Chair of the Northamptonshire Association of Muslim Police, Sophia Perveen, said: ‘When organising this event, I didn’t expect officers or staff to fast, as it can be quite a shock to the system, however it was really encouraging to see them give it a go.

‘This helped to send a powerful message to the local community that officers are willing to try different approaches to gain a better understanding of different communities, their needs and how it impacts their lives.’
