Pakistan to jail anyone who 'eats openly' during Ramadan

Anyone caught smoking or eating openly during Ramadan in Pakistan will be slapped a three-month prison term.

Senator Tanveer Khan told a Standing Committee that a hard line should be taken on anyone breaking the rule, which would also see them fined 500 rupees (3.70).

TV channels and cinemas that violate the law will be fined a minimum of 500,000 rupees (3,700).

Minister of State for Religious Affairs and Inter-faith Harmony Pir Amin Ul Hasnat Shah also suggested closing down cinemas for the entire duration of the holy month.

Muslims are forced to fast during the day from before sunrise to just after sunset during Ramadan – meaning no food or drink, as well as no signs of affections to spouses in public.

Re: Pakistan to jail anyone who 'eats openly' during Ramadan

This is what you get with a Theocracy. We would see equally silly things in the US if some Christians had their way. In the end it does not seem that awful to me as it is a fine, not jail time, and it is if people do it "openly" which in a way is flaunting things. They do not have to fast all day and if the need arises to eat during the no eat time, just do it out of the eyes of others.

Beat me, if you can. Survive, if I let you!

Who are these Christians, who would institute a nationwide theocratic set of laws of the kind unseen in America except for like 50 years in Massachusetts, a hundred years before the United States was even its own independent country?

Surely you can name some.

Wait no you can't, you're just false equivalencing based on your own prejudices.

Oh so NOW we need actual names to discuss broader topics. Funny that does not stop other things from being discussed but this is where we draw the line huh. Talk about other religions being hateful without naming names is ok but Asgard forbid we talk about poor Christians in such a way.

Well guess what, I do not need to give actual names of the people. We both know they are out there. The ones who try and put pressure on government officials to overturn Roe vs. Wade. The ones who are behind "bathroom laws" because transgender and homosexuals "go against the Bible". If you can honestly sit there and tell me there are ZERO Christians who would love to see the government ran more in tune with the Bible then you are too delusional for me to have a conversation with.

Oh and if you must have a name of someone that would fit that bill, how about the Westboro Baptist Church.

You're even more defensive than the vast majority of my most conservative Muslim friends. Tell me who did this to you?

The Pakistani state always postures like this and there are dozens of people who get beaten up for eating in public during Ramadan in Pakistan. It's nothing new.

I used to literally hide in washrooms to eat or go hungry when I stopped fasting. Deep isn't exaggerating.

Re: Pakistan to jail anyone who 'eats openly' during Ramadan

Isn't the whole idea of fasting within Islam to practice self control and self discipline and the like? Seems like a law like this is basically a cop-out to making fasting easier for those who have to, by pretty much shaming and jailing those who aren't Islamic and eat normally, or are Islamic and have special medical reasons for not fasting.

Seems like utter bullshit to me.

Of course it is. Also generally the fat fucking Muslims gain weight during Ramadan because they eat like pigs at Seher and Iftar.

Actually comparing pigs to Muslims is an insult to pigs.

BTW before some SJW gets their panties in a twist, my entire family is still Muslim and even they don't get offended by what I say. Only wrestling forum snowflakes do.

BTW they won't jail just anyone. They'll simply have police hassle and threaten lower class Christians and minorities as well as restaurants that want to remain open.

Only the poorest of the lot who can't even bribe the policemen with a cup of tea will end up in jail.

Pakistan is a failed state so that works in people's favor. Cops simply take bribes and that's it.
